So they run around panicking, presumably also with their heads severed off.

    I didn't know it would rock any boats, but I'll be damned if I'm going to stop pressing just because they don't know what they're doing. Not my problem. So now I'm advertently(!?) rocking the boat.

    This has happened at least four times on four separate issues.


    I was looking for the "slow clap" smiley and couldn't find it. It must exist. You guys should rectify that.
    Parental leave? Many employers tend to be somewhere between confused and uncooperative when men want to do that - happened to a friend of mine who wanted to take parental leave and then work reduced hours to be with his daughter.

    Yup. This is the example that's most pressing, but I've pissed people off by following procedures many times, usually by 'breaking new ground.' (There have also been many, many times where I've purposefully circumvented them, though. People don't like that either. No consequence to me? Tough titties; they'll get over it.)

    We're legally entitled to three whole damn months. Everyone I know has taken only a week or two for paternity, which isn't an issue. I ain't doing that. The problem facing my employer as a whole is where the money to pay me for three whole damn months is going to come from. My colleagues and I don't want it to come out of any of our projects' budgets, because that'd be pissing our money away. That'd be.. not exactly in our best interests.

    FMLA leave is taken concurrently with existing leave. You know how much leave I have saved up? About a billion hours. This is my one chance to use a good portion of it to my advantage.

    This is going to go down as it should; the question is how.

    I would, but I like to be notified immediately when someone sends me a friends request. It's one of those situations where you have to take a heap of bad to get at the sprinkling of good.

    I know I've been gone a long time, but I love ranting here! So here goes:

    Dear Sales Rep - I'm a vendor. Which means you being a dick to me only equates to me pushing this off to the person who hired me. I don't get paid to take crap from you. That's why I am not an employee. So put your penis back inside - not impressed. Azul

    Dear 350 lb. Mom, The skin tight spandex capri leggings are not your look. Yikes - sorry. Azul

    Dear ENTJ, I love you and it's been a whirlwind. Peace out. Azul

    Dear INFP, Your emotive burst that cost me - sux arse. Hope karma comes back to nibble on your emotions involving the same topic we disussed! And hope it bites harder than I did. ENFP

    Dear anyone who thinks I'm too negative on this thread: Bite me. ENFP

    Dear everyone who has stood by me through my passions and my up and my downs. I love you. Dearly. May God bless you all immensely. Love, Azul
