It’s January and it’s raining


Yeh, I don’t get it at all.  Maybe it’s part of that global warming that Al Gore promised me or maybe it’s a shift of the polar ice caps or maybe it’s a reduction of the polar ice caps or a hunderty billionty other reasons why it’s raining in lieu of that icky bad white stuff falling from the heavens.  All I know it the roads are wet and the sidewalks are icy.  I know they’re icy cuz I damn near fell and busted my ass this morning coming to work.  I’m sure it was somewhat entertaining to see my ad lib break dance moves to keep from falling.

Now that this is out in the open and out of the way, we have yet another meeting of the organization’s “brains and power play makers” this week.  “No” I am not invited which is just fine by me since they tend to immediately dismiss whatever I suggest.  At first I was somewhat pissy about their approach with me and then I got to thinking about it.  I get paid the same whether I’m on the “A Team” or whether I’m on the “D Squad” so what do I care?  Let them have the illusion of power and control.  Retirement isn’t that far away and then this place is nothing more than a memory.

I can always blame Jason … who will just blame Gary anyway.

  1. We’re having weird weather here as well … Its the middle of summer, which last year called for 2 enormous fans going 24/7 for a couple of months. Last night we had to light the fire was it was freezing! Go figure.
    And the D Squad always worked for me too 🙂

  2. Jim, I admire your attitude! I am constantly finding myself in similar situations however I am unable to resist the temptation to prank everyone involved or employ some form of passive aggressive behavior which unfortunately invites Human Resources to get involved and then I have to attend special classes and get my pay docked… active engagement in the workplace just isn’t worth it. 👍👍
