    Yup, startin' my office day with the same old routine...

    Check the bank account online...still a million short of where I want to be.

    A quick evil sudoku.

    And here for my daily lax fix. Which of course is only one visit of many during the day :D

    Our nazi like IST dept bans various webpages but lucky for me the bastards haven't stumbled upon this one yet.

    (Disclaimer - in no way did I mean to imply that IST techs are Nazis ;) )

    I have TWO offices, both in cude farms.

    We have a net blocker that eliminates shopping, porn,etc, but lets you get to sports and email in 5 minute segments. Supposedly you can use up to 45 min a day, but I never top 20. This makes one's goofing off very efficient.

    The worst has got to be when mamagement shuffles the deck and moves everyon for no good reason. I've worked for two directors over the 17 years in our complex (Nov makes 20 overall). I have had the same desk for the last 7 years under one director. In the ten years under the previous one, I had 11 different desks over two floors, although my functional work group never changed.

    Dont feel bad I work for people who say teamwork is working by yourself

    anythingyou say is wrong. They also said "Those with disabilties should not be working...they will find a way to fire them there are ways around the ADA act."

    Nothing like unlimited Internet....

    I have to laugh - I don't work for a telecom carrier, but I do work for a telecom and networking company. Great thing about working in a small office is that we don't have the same restrictions as some larger companies......so there's no Internet filtering over on this end. What's also great is that I sit in the last cube in the corner, so I can hear when anyone is coming and turn off anything that I don't want them to see. And, since most of the stuff I do is Internet-based, I can practically mask anything that I'm looking up behind another window (IMHO, web broswers that allow multiple tabs are the coolest thing..... :rotfl: )

    Just my $.02....

    Joining the NLLMB Dilbert Crew

    Another cubicle survivor, working in a cubicle built for two, I am fortunate enough not to share my workspace, but unfortunate that I need the space for my files as I'm afflicted with multiple-boss syndrome (MBS). That's the industrial disease where you work for three different CEOs, Chairs or Directors, who each assume you work FT for them - and ignore the fact that your deadlines and project priorities are affected by the other two.

    It's like being locked in a garden shed with a wolverine, a lynx and a rabid raccoon. :D

    In my position, I'm always brushing shoulders with "very senior managers" from two industry sectors, government and academia :eek: . I then end up doing the dumb, grunt work they need for their next project, event, funding request or trade mission. And being a "power user", I'm stuck doing websites and fixing people's PC problems.

    TG for the NLLMB! Keeps me sane during the day - I can read postings by normal people LOL.
