So I got written up at work today. For saying the word "sucks" in a team meeting. Yes, that's right. "Sucks".


That place just gets better and better. I keep waiting for it to totally regress to 7th grade, with parachute pants suddenly becoming required attire, Motley Crue blaring out of the intercom.

The sick, twisted thing is that it makes me want to hang around there longer. It's like an irresistably gruesome trainwreck, each and every day, as the molten, slaggy heap of a once reasonably cool company slides farther and farther into the corporate abyss, the monkey conductor whooping and hollering, waving his smoking hat at all the gawking onlookers.

that's bordering on lamest reason for a write up that i have ever heard. i bet you lavish the moment each day when you exit the front door of that job and know there are bigger and much better things out there. jobs suck. at least you enjoy poker. good luck.

You serious? Today at work I said "fuck off." I can't imagine getting written up for any kind of language.

Damn. I can actually broach the subject of 4 hour hard-ons, how painful genital warts are, or even talk about vaginas at my job, but you can't say the word "sucks".

That sucks like genital wars, my man.

Man! That makes the office space part of the military seem like nothing.
If you do your job in the Army you can pretty much say whatever, but woe to you if you offend one of the hyper-sensitive folks. (esp if officers)
As a matter of fact today I told the Soldiers in my platoon that they had "better not come to work looking like Joe Shit the Rag-picker tomorrow or..." Then I pull out my R. Lee Ermey on them for fun.
