Not such a good day here at the office (why am I still working?). Two thoughts. First, you crack me up. Second, is there room?

Hi JG

I took it better than most! I knew it was time to hang it up. My family and employees needed convincing

Re: Has anyone told their boss to take this job and shove it?

Just calm down cube, Ive been there and done that with a bad boss. You just gotta know how to properly handle them.

Take a few days off, and go to a shrink a get a few prescriptions, try to get some anti-psychotics. It doesnt mean you have to take them, just fill the scripes, and put them in several large vials with the label, ANTI-Psychotics, so you'll know what yer taking.

Start reading magazines to get yer mind off of the problem, gun magazines to be sure, perhaps a few back issues of Guns and Ammo, they got great center folds of all sorts of automatic stuff. Just love it!!!! AK-47 is my favorite.

Now when you feel better, go back to work, relax, but make sure to bring your magazines and keep your meds out in case you feel sick. Put your magazines around your desk in case you need to distract yourself.

AS you feel better, paste the centerfolds up around your cubical so you'll have something to look at. You need to keep your mind off of the problems. I happen to admire the mechanical aspect of these weapons, they amaze me. Its good to sit back and admire these weapons, smile as you look at them.

Check your med vials now and then to make sure no one has tampered with them, shake the vials now and then.

I also found that if you sit there, and smile a bit with your eyes wide open and your front teeth sticking out, the depression you feel will ease up, do this every five minutes at work.

Everything else will take care of itself. works all the time.
You'll be fine, but your boss will start complaining bout nitemares, pay the sucker no mind.

Cube, all kidding aside, but I hear you, I really do and Ive been in this situation and over a prolonged period of time it can really mess up your mental and physical health. Ive studied workplace abuse and bullying until it came out of my ears. So here are some websites built by some really knowledgable people.

http://www.bullyonline.org/

http://home.netcom.com/~workfam1/

Read some of the essays on the second site, they will give you good insight why alot of people want ER.

Its strange, but most american people are not really honest with themselves, since they buy into the BS that we must put our nose to the grindstone and work our asses off for the man. We were not made to do this, not made to work 8 hours a day, and commute, and take care of a home. We were made to take care of our bodies and minds.

think about it. This is why we are ERing, our inner self is telling us to get out before it's too late. Read the essays in the second site, it tells it all.
