I Am Not Cut Out For This

Some people feel more valuable when they work. I am not one of those people.

1. I do not like work clothes.
2. I like to control the AC.
3. Deadlines are meaningless.

Also, I am:

1. Not a team player.
2. Easily bored.
3. Sleepy.

Some things that we suit me better would be:

1. Sitting by the pool.
2. Painting.
3. Rehab.

However, the consequences of the above choices are:

1. Skin cancer.
2. Poverty.
3. Admitting that I have a problem.

So, I will continue to work.

i am dying laughing because i was just sitting here saying how i am not a team player. honestly, fuck your team. your team don't pay my bills. and it doesn't keep me from getting laid off because the rich fat execs decide to "reallocate their budget".

did i mention fuck your team?

i was also saying how i am easily bored. come now, do you really think anyone really cares that you do need so and so done? i didn't think so.

Thank you.

I have to do some bitch work now. When I finish this task, maybe they will let me use the copier!

I hear you!

If only more people would listen.

That's why I work from home. I can work in minimal clothing, keep the AC at 60, and sit by my pool with the laptop if I so desire.

You may be jealous now.

OMG...I too need REHAB. WOW who would have thunk it? We have sooo much in common! We should get rehab..... but I'm gay.

PS my word verification word (redundant?) is GAIFY.... What are they trying to say??

I know lots of girls married to gay men. Buy me a ring.

Well, I do need employees. The ones that currently come to my house to work for me are woefully stagnant when it comes to wit.

Ha ha - you crack me up...not that it really would take much these days. I too am so not a team player. I agree screw the team, what has the team ever really done for me? Unless of course the team is buying drinks for happy hour - hell, than I am all about being part of that team :)

Now, get back to work!

Or, you could win the lottery and become fabulously rich! And when you do, don't go forgetting us little people. ;)

But my you do keep a nice clean cube!

You know, I'm the same way. I don't know why they keep me around. I honestly think it's to amuse everyone!! My co workers tell me how mean I am, how sarcastic I am, at times rude, and generally have that don't give a -uck attitude. They do tell me everyday how it would suck if I wasn't around. No matter what they say, I could really get used to the "lounging around" life. Someday...maybe....

I am usually too bored to worry about being part of a team....that's when I'm not napping at my desk.

I like your choices and I'm almost at the point where I'm willing to risk the first 2 and deal with the 3rd.....almost.

Oh oh I posted but nothing came up? I hope I didn't get rejected. I'm with you work sucks, but I also have a powerful need to eat. So I guess I'm stuck. :P

There is a Happy Hour team?!


I am already fabulously rich. In experiences and crap like that.


I clean cubes for a living.


They love you. Some people just can't get enough of sarcasm, etc.

mr. g,

Try napping under your desk. It filters out a lot of light.


Eating is overrated.
