Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

Tuesday, January 10

You must be working for a hi-tech company if ...

  • Your CV is on a diskette in your pocket.
  • Holiday is something you roll over to next year.
  • You are already late on the assignment you just got.
  • Your supervisor doesn't have the ability to do your job.
  • Your relatives describe your job as "works with computers".
  • "Being sick" is defined as you can't walk or you are in hospital (and the first is debatable).
  • It is dark when you drive to and from work, even in the summer.
  • You have sat at the same desk for four years and worked for three different companies.
  • Contractors outnumber permanent staff and are more likely to get long-service awards.
  • Board members' salaries are higher than all the Third World countries' annual budgets ... combined.
  • There is no money in the budget for the five permanent staff your department desperately needs, but they can afford four full-time management consultants to advise your boss' boss on strategy.
