    Mike on Time off…
    Mike: So I’m a little confused. You know how I get 1 vacation day per month? Well I think I’m going to have a problem in December. I’m not going to get my vacation day in December until Sunday the 31st. But I can’t carry any days over, so I’m going to get it on Sunday, and then lose it the next day. Should I call HR and see what they think I should do?
    Brian: Maybe you should review the holiday/vacation policy first; I don’t want to call HR if we don’t need to.

    ::Mike goes back into his office and reads the Policy::

    Mike: Oh. I think I’ve been doing it all wrong. Turns out I could have used my vacation time all at once.
    Matt: Ohhhh maaaan, that sucks.
    Mike: Yea, well, I probably would have done it like this anyway.

    I have a Mike sitting 2 desks over from me. Although we call him Steve. If I hear out of his mouth "at my last job we did it this way..." one more time I am going to insert a large stapler down his throat.

    "And I said, I don't care if they lay me off either, because I told, I told Bill that if they move my desk one more time, then, then I'm, I'm quitting, I'm going to quit. And, and I told Don too, because they've moved my desk four times already this year, and I used to be over by the window, and I could see the squirrels, and they were married, but then, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn't bind up as much, and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and it's not okay because if they take my stapler then I'll set the building on fire...

    I simply can not accept the fact that that fellow was the boss on "News Radio".

    Somehow that movie is even funnier when you actually read some of the dialogue. The stapler rant is hilarious!

    It is too bad we lost Phil Hartman. That show was definitely underated. I think they would have been better continuing on without Bill McNeil than trying to fill the missing spot with that fucking idiot Jon Lovitz. I hate that guy. I never thought I would see the day when I wanted Subway to bring Gared back for their commercials!

    I'm with you there! I just don't like that guy.

    We had a guy at Cessna that used to be a truck driver. You could tell that the years on the road, talking to himself, had taken their toll. He would walk around and mumble something incomprehensible to himself and then laugh his ass off while shaking his head.

    He also loved to blame everything wrong with the world on Reagan, and I mean EVERYTHING! He would also stop and listen in on a conversation and then comment on something completely unrelated. So say we were all standing around talking about the Vikings/Packers game, he would stand in and listen and then say something like, "I used to have a really nice guitar, before Reagan was President."

    I had one named Dave. Apparently "they" do everything different/better in P.A. I know this because he could not follow instruction on even the most mundane task with muttering "well , that's not how we did it in P.A.", those words the rest of "us" laugh about to this day. What a dofuss. I am only amazed that it took 2 years to downsize the numbnuts.

    I know. He is from there & says it. I'm thinking, you know, if P.A. is so much better, then why isn't your sorry ass still there? I'll tell you why, 'cuz they didn't want you either! You don't join an organization as a peon & on day 1 start criticizing everything & everybody. At least not if you plan on being around a while.
