anything to avoid a deadline!

I can't help myself, I simply must jump on the musty can beaver (misty anne weaver) bandwagon. the crux of the issue, Weaver wanted to cover up the fact that she had failed to complete paperwork for an important audit for Capriotti (her boss).

it's quite tragic, three lives were lost and a building was burned. it's horrible. and hysterical. no, I'm not the anti-christ.

I don't know how many of you have been keeping score, but from what I've seen nobody really gives a shit anymore. the majority of people that I run into are totally in it for themselves with little or no regard for anyone else. I find myself asking why.

when I think about all of the customer service reps (cable, phone, gas company, electricity, etc.), I deal with and how nonexistent and rude service has become, it pisses me off. but, then I ask myself, why should they give a shit? there is no such thing as job security anymore. everyone is expendable regardless of your title, and bosses drive that point right into the fucking ground. insurance has become a perk. what vacation? sick days? not if you want to come back to a job. salaries have radically dropped and people are MISERABLE.

don't you wonder what was going on in musty's mind that actually made her snap think, if I start a fire, it won't even matter that I didn't finish his paperwork because he'll be way more concerned about his office being on fire. what kind of a boss was this guy? I'm not blaming him, but you gotta wonder what kind of a cock suckin' prick he must've been for this broad to go THAT FAR.

who sets fire to a building to get out of a deadline?! WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT?! WHO DOES THAT?!

Again, the sins of procrastination.

I'm so with you on this, Katie. I just had to walk a friend through why he should not tell his boss he is looking for a new job. The kind of loyalty an employer "expects" from us is not given in return, and yet companies refuse to hire people with an "unstable" job history. Like most of us have a choice! Harumph. I, too, wonder what kind of pressure would make someone think this was a good solution.

You've perfectly described the fear and loathing of our modern life. I've recently pulled Hobbes off the shelf; he describes the state of job security and employer/employee loyalty better than anyone.

Fair's fair, Katie - he gave that dumb slut a deadline, and she squandered her time playing solitaire, eating Krispy Kreme donuts, and reading "Coffee Talk"'s latest update. What's so ball busting about that?

Now where's my matches? I got a report that is never gonna be done in time while I am fucking around here...

What a horrible story. I've had similar ideas run through my mind, though. One time in first grade I got so sick of class that I thought about pouring ketchup on my face, laying face down in the hallway and pretending I had been mugged. (I'm not sure what kind of television I must have been watching in those days.)
