10:13 p.m.

Remember how I figured I was going to be fired from my PI job? Well, slap my a$$ and call me purty...they just offered me a regional supervisor job!

Here I thought you had to work hard and be enthusiastic to get ahead in life, when in reality you just have to give a lackluster performance and exhibit extreme apathy while threatening repeatedly to quit. Lesson learned. The squeaky wheel DOES, in fact, get the promotion.

I should be excited... but then again I work for Hell, Inc. and I'm not sure how I feel about descending the corporate ladder into the bowels of everlasting damnation.

Speaking of damnation... I have to be up at 3am to get to the airport for my 6am flight to VEGAS. Woo hoo! I'll be sure to take plenty of pix.

Let's see you take a pic while you are riding the mechanical bull without being thrown in the process.

And none of those low drugstore cowgirl settings.

Speaking of riding things .... ride Hell, Inc. for all they are worth and then dump them when YOU are ready.

Congrats on the promotion. Like Loki says, if it doesn't get eny better, leave.

Have fun in Vegas.

Bill said...

Don't gamble away your raise!

Hey there, purty!

Seriously though, congrats on the promo. Like they always say, the lackluster employees get moved to where they can do the least damage, management.

Alright - so besides Mad and Mike's engagement, we have Polly's promotion to celebrate in Vegas!

WOOHOOO! Watch out! Oh - and the bidding for pix of Polly riding the bull will start at $100....

Congrats on the promotion. Loki is right. Use 'em for all they're worth and dump 'em when you're good and ready. In the meantime, have fun in Lost Wages and if you see Wayne Newton, tell him I said hi.

Just remember that craps has the most even odds, about 1.5% to .5% house edge (EVERYTHING else in Vegas has worse odds).

Bet the pass line (or Don't Pass), take full odds and if the moment strikes you maybe a flyer on 8 or 6 hardways. Anything else has too high odds of winning.

If you've never played before, just remember that it is just between you and the house, other players actions do not affect your chances. Blackjack or "21" requires skill (card counting) to have a chance of winning and other players CAN affect your chances..

Ask a craps pit boss for help if you need it, they want you to know how to play.

But it is important to remember, you can win it fast but also lose it fast.

Well, slap my a$$ and call me purty

Well, okay..but will you respect me in the morning?

Loki said...

jh rhoades - "Well, okay..but will you respect me in the morning?"

That depends on how good you were last night, and if you give good wake-up encores.

I recently got a new job, and every time I think I suck and am about to get fired, I'm complimented on what a great job I've done. Perhaps we're just our own worst critics.

Or we both have stupid bosses. That sounds more likely, given that I'm working with people who need intense therapy.
