    Help. I'm being held hostage... Working the day before Turkey day rant.

    Someone please come pay my ransom.

    With the holidays here, our clients have provided nothing for my dept to do. I am stuck fixing the errors of other depts. The only "working" dept has had nothing to do for the whole day.

    I continue to work at the mind numbing task.

    Oh dear.... they are now warming up the Bio-Chem Weapons of Gastric Destruction. Yep they are warming up the leftovers from yesterday's Company Thanksgiving lunch. Nothing like eating reheat food that sat at room temp for at least 4 hours.

    For the love for all that is wholesome and good in the world.... I hope we get pardoned before the noxious gasses start getting release.


    Have a great Turkeyday y'all.

    I would bail you out, but I had to punch the clock today and the boss is away.

    Yea I have today off, but I have to work Sat to make up for it.

    I also wanted to take the rest of my vacation (10 days left) this week.

    Instead I was told that I have to work the next three Saturdays and there will be no taking time off till very, very late Dec

    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."
