notes on government, sports and popular culture
....Interesting parallel conversations in the truck today.....
One supervisor comes in asks if I want to donate $1 per week of my wages to the United Way. Sure, I said, it was the least I could do.
Mind you, the whole time I'm loading boxes, and flow is pretty heavy. As I'm getting signed up, my direct supervisor, with whom I'm on very friendly terms, comes in and starts bitching me out because some of packages are going down a third slide because the two trucks I'm loading are flowing pretty heavily.
Hey, I can't be everywhere, and things get somewhat heated. So I'm standing there yelling and cussing at one supervisor then turning to the other one and discussing the goodliness of the United Way. Again, boxes are flying down the chute the whole time. Nobody seemed fazed by the whole situation.
