But I'm the only person who does my job at my company.

I can do this too but I am salary. My work week is also longer than 40 hours. Surprising amount of flexibility as long as my work gets done though.

I love those thug life videos.

The word "quit" has never had any place in my life or vocabulary. I get stuff done one way or another, and I never, ever give up. Yesterday I stood up during a board meeting and said, "I'm not saying I'm quitting...but I'll bring in an AR-15 and kill all you *************."
Now I can stay home with my kids.
Thug life.

Random observation:

Facebook is a thing which exists, and to which many of us are exposed on a regular basis.

From time to time, I come across a situation in which an individual, typically female, has posted an image of themself. Inevitably, this tends to be followed by numerous posts by vapid morons saying "U R soo beautiful, girl!" and things to this effect.

And I cannot help but think to myself that not merely does the person in the image fail to satisfy any conventional definition of the word "beautiful," but in fact, if I were to post a comment, it would tend to read along the general lines of "Holy ****, you are an amazingly unattractive person, and you really ought not to wear clothing which causes your flesh to bulge in that specific way! And while I commend your bravery in posting this photograph of yourself in a place where many people can see it, I cannot help but wish that I had never stumbled across this posting."

You think this is why there are so many ugly people in the world? Unwarranted positive reinforcement?

I think it is why so many ugly girls dress with their flesh bulging in untoward fashion.

Just got promoted early. I got a 13% pay raise last June, another 10% with the promotion, and will be eligible for another raise in June again. Also got a performance bonus and told I am getting on the client account I wanted. New engagement will involve international travel to Europe. Today was a good day.

I think it's a contributing factor into why there are so many people who have a distorted perception of themselves, their accomplishments and their value to society, and who have great difficulty comprehending reality.

You mean I'm not important just because I'm pretty?

Congrats man! Its nice to be recognized for ones work, but you can't buy car parts with "attaboys"

I too received an unexpected bonus this year. Actually, I should say I received 59.75% of an unexpected bonus. Thanks Obama.
