What about occasional guilt free boinkings after you've had a bad day?
They still come back to haunt you... I had the promise of a boink once, and even though we ended up just chatting instead she was weird with me forever afterwards; ruined a perfectly good working relationship.

Large objects being slid down flights of stairs, and nipple rings do not mix.

There will always be that one supervisor who will never be pleased, no matter what you do, and will never have any praise regarding you. You just have to remind yourself you are not a bad enployee, and there are other supervisors who do appreciate you.

1. NO ONE is indispensable.
2. Management will frown on a 10 cent raise above whats approved to an stablished, compenent and knowledgable current employee, but would gladly pay a couple of dollars more above that limit to an outsider that knows nothing.
3. If the goals are 100 widgets and you give 100% along with sweat and tears to consistently meet your goal, your goal WILL BE increased to 150 widgets.
4. The Company will demand loyalty and complete devotion, but will kick you to the curb in a New York minute.
5. Its not who you know, its what they're willing to do for you.
6. 99% of the time Management already knows who is getting the promotion before posting or interviewing for the position.
7. confidential company phone hotlines, ARE NOT confidential.
8. Work smarter not harder means that you're expected to do all the preparation work and post paperwork on your own time at home.
9. Corporate will preach to you about customer service and customer satisfaction with such intensity that you could almost believe they really do care, until several calls make it to them and then they make it extremely clear they detest dealing directly with customers
10. Corporate metrics are stablished by people who never have worked the front line and who assume customers are idiots that buy whatever we tell them buy.

- Never judge a client by their appearance, especially in a veterinary surgery.

- Never trust a client that says their animal is sweet and wouldn't hurt a fly.

- Never leave the consult room door open, the surgery cat knows how to open the huge treat jar and will empty it overnight.

- People will try and offload their old insulin and used needles because they think that the surgery will pay for them.

- If you use water, Lily pollen is forever.

- Anonymous judging with an out of state judge still means you give all the blue ribbons to your friends.

- Boyfriends/Husbands have no idea the difference between carnations and roses.

- It is preposterous that you would not have roses of every color type at 6pm on Valentine's Day.

- Managers do not own the store. someone else owns it and it is someone else's money being spent. managers are basically overpaid babysitters with no spine, brain, balls or authority (that lies above them). they are forced to consume large amounts of Kool-Aid to get the job.

- the "good ol boy network" is still VERY alive and kickin at most companies. which means you (male or female) have to be a "yes"man, pretent to "love" sports and discuss sports at the sales meetings, be preapred to be micro-managed to the point of insanity, spout the company line perfectly on command, and bite your tongue to the point of doing a self tongue-extomy multipule times.

Don't assume anything. Be very specific and precise. Even if something seems obvious, it's not.

"Common sense" and "common knowledge" don't exist.
