    I get his point, he doesn't trust her to work, but what am I gonna do?  I have no authority over her.  How about stepping up as her boss and informing her that expects certain things to be done and there will be consequences if they aren't?
    Nice way to start the week.

    Fire him and take his job, the fire her and let me take her job.

    Maybe she is special.
    I'd hire you.  I'd bet you could learn the names of the other employees in 7 months (she still hasn't learned them)

    I have no doubt she has a learning problem.  And an attention disorder.  These are not problems, except when you do nothing to help yourself.

    She may not know she has a learning disability. Nearsighted people often have no idea their vision is messed up until they get glasses and suddenly realize the world is not built blurry.

    No trip to KY for me this week. I'd would have enjoyed grabbing a brew with Doc, but I'm not upset that I get a pass. I'm still wearing a boot for the bad tendon, so walking around 3 days would have sucked.

    You want to meet for a beer this Saturday or Sunday. I have scheduled myself the weekend off and don't really feel like puttering around town doing the same stuff iI always do.

    Arkay, youre invited too.

    Gonzo can't come. Banned for the crime if being gG in frickingKentucky. u

    Well, here we go again. After the issue with the boss telling me he might take away my already approved day off, I reminded him that I was off on 10/12 (another date he has already approved) for 2 doctor appointments. I told him they were yearly exams, and I've had the appointments since last year, so I really didn't want to have to change them. (Also, I try to do 2 appointments on the same day so I can take a whole day of sick leave, and not have to rush an hour back to Supesville to work part of a day) He says no problem, if we are both gone, then so be it. Okay. So this morning, he tells me that it looks like the thing is happening that week, and he'll be out. I remind him again of my 2 appointments, and say something like we need to give her a list of duties to keep her busy all day (his biggest concern is that she'll go sit in someone's office and gossip all day, or sit on her cell phone talking to her boyfriend).

    I've been invited to the Las Vegas trip on November 10 through 13. I'm sure a lot of my time will be dominated by meetings and mandatory fun.

    But November is close enough to Christmas that I hope toe see an abundance of Star Wars slot machines out there.

    I'll also play a Ghostbusters machine.

    The cell phone mining was quite lucrative today but at a cost...

    35 devices sold in 10 hours- was insane.  Now I am exhausted and a little fried.  I really do think this is a YES whiskey evening.

    Also alls I had in the house for dinner was peanut butter, low sugar strawberry jam and hoagie rolls.

    jack daniels and ginger ale really, really helped.

    I was laying back in my quasi-office chair, arms limp at my sides, head rolling back, eyes closed-- smiling.

    It was a transcendent alcohol experience the likes of which I doubt I'll ever see again.
