( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
It's funny. I've had lunch with the two people that put me in this position (my boss and the Quality Manager) a number of times since their meeting, and not once was this part of the project discussed. Not in passing, not even a good-humored "Had enough yet?"

My boss told me, what would probably be 2 or 3 days after their big meeting, that my biggest priority was the portal now that the project was moving forward (see parts 2 and 3 for more details), and that everything else was secondary. When I approached him about that statement, and asked him how he could, in retrospect, knowing I had that deadline, have made that comment, he shrugged and commented that he didn't know that it was going to be so much work.

Of course, I didn't know that it was going to be ANY work. He also said that he thought it strange that I hadn't commented on that particular piece of the project at that time either, but chalked it up to me being a team player.


Since when have I been known as a team player, especially when it comes down to me being someones b#!@%?

I have to laugh at the situation, otherwise, cf. my "Freeing Organs up to Donors lists" comment in the CB.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
