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....



I like reading your posts :-)

I am in IT too and whatever "MemberSince99" described applies to me too ;-)

Thank you :) In my company the "ultimate" status system is to have an actual office. None of us in IT except for the VP have that of course. 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!

Proceed to take said candy cane. Smash into bits and throw in garbage. Hell the entire office should pulverize their candy canes and sprinkle the crumbs all over the boss' car.
