Why don't you visit his office now and then and let him know how good of a job he's doing?

Did you let him just yell at you about surfing the net and didn't defend yourself?

Stick up for yourself acs. Grow some balls. Print out your 'numbers', if you can, and slap them down in front of him to see.

Next time he comes by, tell him you're going to file sexual harassment against him, because he looked at you 'that way' and always seems to point you out, like he's interested in you.

Or simply hit on him. That'll keep him away from your cubicle or whatever you work in.

Go buy a marial arts trophy and display it in your cubicle.

This post is 90% amazingly bad arse

The 10% that isn't is where you tell me to grow balls. Haven't you seen my martial arts trophy watch yourself!!

Anyways, the CIO didn't tell me, he told my Boss to tell me. So I told my boss my numbers are great so I don't see the problem. Basically my boss had to tell me so that the CIO wouldn't yell at him.

What a P

Sounds like your boss is alright though. At least you only have to see this guy once every 3 weeks or so...

Things like this is what is pushing me to start my own thing rather than work for "the man." Just graduated college and am going to take the risk and do what I can on my own. Hopefully it works out, if not, then there is no better time in a person's life to take the risk.

What do you do? 8-o

I work in radio as news director for a group of three stations. I do two half-hour newscasts plus an hour long talk show in the mornings, but I'm off air at 9am. I spend the rest of my day gathering news and audio to use the following day. But I wont have another newscast until Tuesday morning, so anything I got for today would be outdated by then anyway. No point in sticking around all day if I'm not going to be able to use any of my work next week anyway.

Days like this are the exception though, we had our primaries last week and on election day I was at work from 5am to almost 11pm, then back in at five the next day.

Color me jealous.

I work for the state government in Nebraska as an Investigator. Today my job is to answer all incoming calls and explain the discrimination law. It makes for a LOOOONG day, especially on the eve of a long weekend.


what's the number? i'm bored today
