Off again

Work is sending me off on another retreat. No, this one is not sensitivity class. What burns me about this whole thing is that again I asked "Do I have to go?" Because I have a lot of stuff going on at work, at home and with my health I didn't feel that two extra days out of the office would do me any good. In their infinite wisdom it was decreed that this, indeed, was a mandatory event and I have to go.

So last week I'm finishing up details and seeing who else is going from my office so we can carpool or what not. They have 8 of these seminars going on through out the year, so the sups attending were spread out. Come to find out that no one else from my office is attending this one. Even the ones that were assigned to go at this time aren't going. It seems that they weren't able to register, so they aren't going.

In fact most of the other management in the office is not attending. Needless to say this rather irritates me because if I had known that if I just held off registering for this and waited too long, that I wouldn't have to go.

This double standard at work is really starting to piss me off.

Well that sucks! Maybe you could "get sick" and call in instead of going...

One has to know when to use the power of acid spit.

Key word - "retreat." As in, retreat from one's own senses. Time to do a remote microbrew tour and sleep it off in the seminar.

BONUS: Live blog it.**

*SMACK-SMACK* "Dude - did you hear that? That was my SKULL. I'm so wasted!"

For flair, have a pizza delivered, but be sure to have enough to share in case Mr. Hand gives you shit.

**On second thought - DON'T live blog it... Grau was evidently beamed off the planet after his drunken tear... What gives?
