I am so confused. Why do the people who deserve a slap in the face get everything they ask for while those who deserve thanks don't even get that.

A very pushy woman just put in a request for us to buy her a router for her home because she can't VPN to the network of a company she works with from home. I would gladly buy my own stuff if I could work from home. But why should the company pay because she doesn't want to drag her lazy butt the 10 miles in your BMW into the office that she is supposed to be working in.

I think the money would be better spent on buying our underpaid receptionist some thank you flowers. She puts on a smile and takes crap from everyone everyday. And almost never gets a pat on a back, thank you, or anything. I guess if you are the lowest paid person in the company, people don't need to give you props for the work you do.

I work with a bunch of self-all-important bitches.

I just got your message... I think I'm in for the night. I've been taking care of Tom, he either has food poisoning from the plane food or some really bad flu. I've been forcing him to eat and drink, I've gotten pretty good at the plane propeller noise.

Hey, I'll ask... like you said, why not? It almost makes as much sence for them to pay your rent.

Re: psssssssst
Actually they laughed at me today because I made such a big deal, I asked if I could have them pay to move me down to the Santa Monica Office for the winter to support the ten people down there, because I wanted to be warm. I said I was willing to come back in the spring but they seemed to think it was a joke. Nobody takes me seriously, I don't know why, really!

I would take that receptionist job in a second, though. She should be grateful for at least having one, although I see where you're coming from.

Maybe you should do something nice for her...?
