Watch out Lamp, here we come.


It's a strange day at work today, lots of people are expecting to hear whether they have been accepted for voluntary early retirement and voluntary severance. In my office, 4 out of 7 have applied for it (not me!). If they all get it, our office will be severely depleted, which may have implications for those left behind (ie me). Still, look on the bright side, it's a good excuse for a piss-up.

So, you'll be hungover with twice as much work to do -- yes, I can see how that would help you feel better. Pft.

Hope it all went okay Baz. Much respek for your attitude.

Twice as much work to do, bet you don't get a pay rise. But then it is an 'opportunity' as those conversant with CBI-SPEAK will attest. It's a funny old 'world of work'.

Never a good time when these sorts of things happen at work, hope you don't end up with double the work load Bazza, still, a trip to Lamp is a good cure for all things bad!

All those in my office got their early retirement, I get to hear my fate on Wednesday.

Wow. Your job looks fun, Bazza. You get to sit at a picnic table and consume beer. No wonder you're worried.

Here in Oregon, things are much different. Yes, much, much different. Here we are only permitted to hold the beer in our LEFT hand. Not in the right as with your employer.

Now that's what I call a real pisser!
