The PHB has something showing on his computer screen. I had no idea he even knew how to turn it on...maybe it's just the screen saver 'cause someone else turned it on and then left it running...

My boss called me to her office once and said, 'Refamiliarize yourself with this program we were thinking about using last year. We have a 10:30 meeting scheduled to discuss it. I looked at my watch - it was 10:27. That was worth 1.7% of my time. Or less.

How many points do I get for doing the math on my slide rule?
No, not kidding, I used my Pickett N 3-ES. (I know, using a Deci-tri-Log duplex dual-base for this is like putting in thumbtacks with a sledgehammer, but it's my daily use slide rule and did the job quite nicely, thank you).

How many geeks....I mean, readers, pulled out a calculator to check if Scott was correct with the 3.7%.
Double geek points if you used the Windows calculator and triple points if you did it in your head!

Wow, Scott just summed up the 12 bosses I have had since leaving the military! Currently, my Federal Lead just made me the "expert" on six different systems that I have absolutly no access to. Then, told all of the other federal managers that they need to address their problems to me about those systems and I will expidite their problem resolutions and have all projects complete by the end of February. I inherited 57 unique problems on those systems (over 200 help desk tickets - one of the systems I don't have access to) and no way, except force of personality, to get the job done. I would gladly trade jobs with Dilbert! BTW, I still have to get my own work done on time! Retirement - never! Disability via nervous breakdown - priceless!
