Does it affect your salary? Because if it does, you should file some sort of group complaint about it.

Nope, it's just annoying because we were told we could get a bonus if our company safety goals were met, and we literally have no control over it. Kind of like if I told my kid I'd give him a cookie if Romney was elected. It's just plain mean.

Yeah, but safety goals are good.

Yeah, that's a bit unfair.

If it's unfair, it's unfair that he would receive the bonus if it were achieved. The fact that he doesn't receive it isn't in the least unfair because by his own words he's not contributing to improved safety anyway.

It's not unfair, just annoying and mean.

Had an interesting interview today. Normally it's the same old crap, but this guy was actually pretty technical, challenged me on my skills, and the position sounds interesting. They unload the data entry crap off-shore and focus primarily on data analysis and manipulation, right up my alley.

So you would be able to be behind a computer all day and continue to contribute here undisturbed?

I'm guessing no. But then maybe I'd come on here more on nights/weekends.

How is everyone's Mo coming along. I'm currently growing out the goatee, and will shave it into a mo in a week or so.

I'm getting bored with Walking Dead. The characters aren't interesting and the pacing sucks.

you wuss....you should just grow the mo sans goatee: way more crazy looks come your way= more opportunity to explain yourself, which is the point. My mustache is ridiculously thick already. It's as luxurious as Parros', easily. Itches like a mofo and i currently look like a 70's cop going undercover for a disco cocaine bust.

did you watch this past sunday's episode? This season has been 100 times better than the snooze that last season was....and sunday's was one of the most gut wrenching/emotional episodes of a television show that I've ever seen.

Yes, last night. They have been drawing things out way too long and it lost it's emotional impact on me. The characters are just flat and one-dimensional. At least in the second season they had some depth to them...for all intents and purposes the living characters are zombies. They just drift from scene to scene.

Spoil:
Like Rick for instance...he spent all of the second season battling with the shaved head guy, and then he just becomes him? And when the *****y mom dies last night, she tells the KID to be good? Isn't that what Rick needs? So there's this rift between Rick and the wife that could have been interesting, and they just let it die (literally).

Or the tension between the men when they locked the prisoners out of the gate...there could have been a mutiny that challenged Rick's authority, but everyone just kind of got in line and then the black guy died.


The show's just getting way too cute for me. It's got to foreshadow the living crap out of every little thing and then just keep reminding you about it, like you're an idiot.

Somehow they stretched five episodes worth of content to about ten in the second season and it was still fairly interesting, but now they are doing the same thing with more blood and guts and it's boring.
