LDS with a strong opening title and a solid showing in the last OT thread.

I'm just pleased that my "Draw!" post actually worked.

Someone post the stats from the last OT thread.

So I just had a half hour conversation with my Area Director of him trying to talk me out of leaving.

I so just wanted to say "I've made my decision leave me alone". Yet I don't want to.burn the bridge plus I've worked for him for a long time so I owe him as much as hearing him out.

The trick with those situations is that even if they offer you better compensation, why did they wait to do it now? Also, if you stay, you'll also be looked at as the guy who can never be 100% "trusted" again.

For what it's worth, if you know that all this guy wants to do is to convince you to stay, you'd be well within the professional norm to politely decline because you've already made your mind up and want to be respectful of his time. Anyone that would get fired up at you for doing so would have burned said bridge anyhow.

Only 11 posts last thread from me? What a shambles.

Totally agree with this.

If they wanted you that bad, they shouldn't have created a situation where you wanted to leave. Not personal, just business.

Unless they're giving you an insane offer to stay, AND you know you can deal with it, thank him for his time and move on.

Wife locked her keys in her car so I needed to go unlock her car. Took me an hour and a half, so now I have to stay late to make up the time.

Ironically, I got lost trying to find her, and ended up in Ulysses.

I've never gotten so lost that I ended up inside an ancient Greek. Bravo.

I read a stat at some point that stated that contrary to popular belief, Americans as a whole have worse teeth than the British.

I remember something to the effect that on average they actually have the BEST teeth in the world.

We're not going to let this OT thread be dictated by fact-checkers.

Orthodontics is not as big a deal in Britain so there are more people with crooked teeth.

Chainshot 09-28-2012 09:10 AM

I'll take the over on me making it to the end of the day without telling someone in management to **** right off. But only slightly.

Speaking of Top Gear, an old rumor from 2007 has resurfaced that James May could be called upon to play the 12th Doctor in other BBC hit show, Doctor Who.

I would love that.
