Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the shovel.

Hmmmm... I can't decide if you're the guy that likes gossip but doesn't want to admit he does (SO beneath you and all).. or if you're in there like a dirty shirt!

I'm going to go with my first thought. :P

Can't wait for next weeks greatest hit!

((Hugs))

Bonfire! Bonfire! Bonfire!

I'm re-reading this and it reminds me of HR if it was run by Stalin... "invisibility," "departure," artfully and euphemistically arranged under the auspices of being shiny happy informative on each other people holding hands.

So Randal with one L, trying to stay invisible in Cubicle World only ensures it I guess.

laura, all of my t-shirts are cleaned & pressed.

ethan, double heh, as this tome comes from that decade. Leafing through it, how little corporate gobbledygook has changed.

thatgirl, don't make me report you to the commissar.

mrmacrum, one can sport a cloak of invisibility day & night, but if someone's got a ring of true seeing, forget it.

Did IBM give you permission to reprint their employee manual?

Confucius (or was it Dilbert?) say, "On the keyboard of life, always keep one finger close to the 'escape' key."

Demeur said...

Coffee rings, mayo stains and gossip? Ha! The boss is just wondering when the grant money arrives so he can purchase the newest robotic librarian. The insourced tech guy from India has his papers in order and is ready to keep the system humming. And he doubles as the janitor too.

Randal Graves said...

susan, in America, you create enemy, in Russia, enemy create you!

And that's why I don't do stand up.

demeur, given the institutionalized duh foisted on & blithely accepted by America's young'uns, they'll need us flesh n' bloods for a while longer. In a couple of decades, well, I'll probably be Austeritied™ by then, so whew.

"industrial sociology's greatest hits." All right! Rock on! I'll give it an 85; it's got a good beat and you can dance to it.

S.W. Anderson said...

So, on top of his other perverse characteristics, Joe Liebermann foreswore gossip? Failed to keep up with the latest dish in the Senate cafeteria? And then, he announced he's not running for re-election.

Bwahhahaahaha!

Randal Graves said...

okjimm, oh what a tangled web Packers weave, when first they practice to deceive by throwing on first and second down.
