Ralph to go into semi-hibernation...

I am about to become a wildly overpaid clerk for 2 months. I'll be working 2nd shift and may even get a shot at overtime (hope, hope!). First work since May 22, 2008.

I can't go into the details, but it's Dilbert in action (at $35 an Hour)...

Excellent, SSRSE! I'm sure it'll be great to get back to work again.





Something in me wants to say something like "COBOL Man to the rescue!" There shoulda been a comic strip character with that name.

Don't make me pull the GOTO trigger.....


As to the work, hmmm... let's say a manager at a big company shoved some work into a corner to get a bigger bonus...until the Federales got wind of it. Their response was simple - get it done or get a BIG fine. So COBOLMAN puts on his Clerk Kent suit and starts the meter running.....

Great! I'm happy for you!

At that salary, if you leave your desk about 5 minutes to go to the bathroom, you are paid 3$. It's a very nice thing, to be paid three dollars to go to the bathroom.
