The job place personified

We had a departmental meeting today. In the meeting, a certain project was discussed that may very well have a shortened life span. That's the way of my company though. We dump tons of cash into things that we may use briefly and then abandon. As my one co-worker put it, "Why is that I feel we're just a little bi-polar as a company?"

I've experienced that too, and my trick for not letting it bother me is that I tell myself I'm getting paid for it regardless. Kind of an apathetic approach, sure, but it works.

This is why I carry a hip flask at all times.

You must work for the gov't! Either that or Microsoft!

Heh, I was thinking the same thing about it sounding like gov't work!

slade73 - You should know all about the malaise of the company. *shifty eyes*

MJ - Flask? I've seen your hips. You can strap a kegger on there, fudgenut.

Eros - No on both, but you're close.

Not one word form you, slade.

*points menacingly*

Charlie - *hugs him* Hey, Charlie! I'm probably considered a threat to national security for some reason so I doubt I will ever work for our lovely gov't.

LOL!!!!! I just got around to seeing your response today (took me long enough -- the new Blogger automatically sends responses out like so many Jehovah's Witnesses so I guess I'm out of practice on following up).

Don't worry Maidy, they'll break your will yet. Eventually, we'll all be down at a compound in Guayana harvesting lima beans. Ah, good times...
