Only for those still employed

I'm getting "short", as they say, so my own response is recently trending from 3 or 2 to 1.

Re: Only for those still employed

Do you really expect people to respond honestly to this from their work email?

Yes, judging by the responses thus far it seems they're either a)not worried about it or b) fearless & don't give a damn.

C) self-employed, so nobody is looking over my shoulder or "reviewing" my responses.

Re: Only for those still employed

Fortunely for me, I'm not there right now...since it's way after-hours! So my vote was "No, but I will when I get there".....However, had I been @ w**k I definitely would have voted "You bet! Every chance I get!"

Since I'm a short-timer (142 days to go...but who's counting ) I've been dishing out delegating the nasty crap that I have to do my job responsibilities to the suckers that have YEARS to go until retirement those who will have to do them when I leave. I figure now is the best time to load them down with all sorts of meaningless crappy jobs that I don't want to do anymore for them to learn, so if they have questions they can go ask someone who actually gives a rat's a** ask me for help. :

So in light of that, I have an ABUNDANCE of free time to screw around and irritate the hell heck out of everyone there!!!

My boss asked me today, if I would consider leaving MUCH sooner, if he and the other employees at our joint donated their vacation time to me!!! I told him "ABSOLUTELY!!!...NOT!!!" Heck, if I irritate him that much, why would I want to leave early??
