And a Little Humor, Things Not to Do at Work...

  • Hug your coworkers at every opportunity. Share all sex related jokes with them. Bring up religion and politics as often as possible.
  • Be seen having lunch with the malcontents, trouble makers, and other toxic personalities at every opportunity.
  • Always let your boss know what he or she is doing wrong. Especially point out any character flaws they may have. How else will they know how to improve themselves?
  • Keep your desk a total shambles.
  • Gossiping is good. It gives you credibility.
  • Going to a job interview? Be sure to smoke lots of cigarettes on the drive there. The interviewer will hire you on the spot when he smells the aroma.


List of Reference Websites - Includes Many Oldies, but Goodies.

I do believe many of these resources were collected from the second millennium. I am amazed how many have stood the test of time. There appears to be no reason not to keep them around for another year. Besides, old links can be useful at times. If you discover one that has sadly joined that electron heap in the sky, let me know and I will remove it.
