I obey the impossible and insane commands of the freaks I work for, who get huge bonuses for screwing things up while I can't even get a raise for fixing what they break. My goal is to get a job that provides me with some sense of satisfaction while removing me from working for complete lunatics and idiots. But if I were a betting man I'd say the odds of that happening are roughly about the same as me driving my car to Mars.
I know, I know, more than you wanted to know.....I work in IT would have sufficed....

Below that, is you get a shower door on your cube. It literally looks like a shower door and is a cheap plastic door that doesn't work very well. That's what the managers get to show their status. I bet they're proud as hell of having a shower door on their cubes. I like to say (with sarcasm) I will know I've arrived when I can get a shower door on my cube....
At my company we don't do anything for Christmas. The CFO comes around with a card and a candy cane for everyone, probably thinking how painful it is that the company paid for them, though knowing him I bet they got last year's stale stuff on sale at Costco. Merry Christmas indeed keep up the good work for a candy cane while I get my huge bonus, chumps!
