Sanding our assholes with 150 grit. Slowly. Lovingly.

Well, I emailed the HR rep for an appointment

no going back now, I guess.

Now I´m really worrying about whether I´ll be able to make a convincing case and whether any of my co-workers who saw this crap yesterday will be willing to tell HR lady so.

Congrats. That's a good thing. Either things will improve there, which is good, or they won't and you'll be finding another job soon, which is probably better.

Jobs are still scarce in this corner of the world.

I have pretty mild salary requirements, though. Well, they USED to be mild requirements...

Like I said in the other thread, I'll send you a LinkedIn invite if you want.

I've figured it out! Your boss use to post on JOS as Joeseph and he finally clicked on your link and found out who you really are. He was unable to deal with the manly way that you destroyed him here :)

Maybe he has started taking the pills for his sex change operation.

You need to be more understanding...

Just to make you feel really paranoid (like you need this):

If you post to JOS from work, your manager could have gotten URLs you visit from the corporate proxy server and possibly could have visited JOS to see what you were doing here so often, and 'made' you from your posts.

Bored -

If that sort of thing is going on, then I need to not be working here anyway, eh?

It would royally suck, but you know how companies have gotten about employee internet use. I didn't exactly post that to yank your chain. It's possible (as is anything.)
