IF You Could

If you were to be stranded on a deserted island, with no chance of rescue, which celebrity would you like to get stuck with?

Personally, I would have to say Charisma Carpenter or Felicia Day.

Funny Guys

I've been following a podcast. Never been one to listen to much other then music. But i found these guys on Twitter. They are some funny fella's. I know when i need a good laugh for the day, i can play one of their podcast's from the site and feel a little bit better. 

Besides, with names like Mr. Know It All, Angry Ginger, Sniper and Kilted One, how could you not laugh??

Check them out.

Is There Such a Thing As Ethics Anymore?

Recently, my company has decided to outsource my department. Not uncommon in today's world. But what really hurts the most, is the fact, I help start this department 3 years ago. Helped another 9 people build it up from nothing, to get it where it is today. 

What hurts even worse, is the fact that the company that they are giving my job to, we have been helping for some time. What seemed to be a little innocent at the time, yet questions were asked and of course shot down, turned out to be nothing more then a set up from the get go from the higher ups. 

Now, they have the gall to ask me to continue to help this group of people who are taking my job away from me? When I state that i cannot in good faith, management has the audacity to tell me they are disappointed in me? 

Now I can understand if I was being promoted or moving to a different city where i had to train a replacement. But to be told, were not good enough and not saving the company enough money, so were taking your job away? Please. I was raised better then that. 

Honesty/Integrity, Fairness are three of our so called unifying principles. However, everything this company stands for is all about the shareholders this and shareholders that. Not about the employee. Bullshit for the customer as well. 

And yet somehow, I have managed to remained loyal to this company. How has the company remained loyal to me? Let's see...
1. Raised the tax rate on all overtime and bonus's
2. Removed Year end bonus's all together
3. Removed work incentives
4. Cut in half, what very few incentives they did leave
5. Cut the pay rate for differential so most people took a nice pay cut with that

and the list goes on. 

Apparently i was raised wrong and everything i was taught in school was either wrong or all for not, because it doesn't seem to apply with Corporate America. 

So in the end, I have yet to break Code of Conduct policy by refusing to help those who are taking my job. So now the question remains, what loop hole will they find to fire me?

Modern day Cloak & Dagger?

I've been following the rift between the hacker group Anonymous and Aaron Barr of HBGary Federal. This guy seems to have been and may still be on a massive power trip.

But the articles reveal a lot. Including what one may call espionage, writing back doors for the govt to spy, etc. I'm so waiting for this move to come to light!!! :D

Here's the articles i have been reading, yes they are long. but a very good read.

Reading these will make you wonder how much of your personal info is out there and how anything can be traced back to you.

Special Weekend

I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or
Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite & KY then Kay.

Case of the Simple Life

I just want to be able to live a normal life with out all the lies and deciet. But then, I guess i would need to find a deserted island. Then on the other hand, i would lie to myself and decieve myself. So im fucked either way you look at it.

The Life & Times of A Corporate Puppet

Now, I've been fired from a few jobs since i was 15. But just the other day, I got the dreaded email from corporate that they are outsourcing my department. This actually hurts more then a firing.

3 1/2 years spent in this department. Matter of fact i am one of the founding members of this department. But once the corporate buy out and greed kicked in, we all knew, from all departments, hell was on it's way.

So they want to outsource us, fine. But don't ask me to help those who work in the outsourced company to do my job. Talk about slapping me in the face.

No one knows what's going to happen. We don't know how many of the managers will have a job when it's over in a few weeks. Or how many of the 135 or so of us will have jobs.

Every since this new company bought us out, it's been down hill. Just enough to line their pockets though. Just like every other fucking company.

In the end, i honestly hope the company goes belly up like Madoff.
