It seems “they” found out I blog at lunch and sometimes during (required to be taken by Texas State law) breaks.
Uh, oh. Dang I guess using company computers for personal purposes at lunch is cause for political intrigue! Gee, that might be a problem if I wanted to take anybody’s job (instead of just doing what I do) or if I was unproductive (as opposed to a slow day when I have few things to do, or things that take a long time & keep my numbers down).
Maybe it would be a problem that I sometimes log into my personal email at work also. Except that I can’t use the company email service. . . . I can’t even ping the company email server from my computer, so it’s yahoo! or nothing.
Oh well. Like I said to a guy here who didn’t like me making noise (metalworking): want me to stop doing something? Say “please stop” and sit back and watch the magic. I’m not a woman and I refuse on the basis of having X & Y chromosomes to pick up on subtle hints. The employee manual says no personal use during working hours. Lunch = working hours? Hmm? HHHhhhmmmmMMMMMmmm????!!!!??!/1/
This reminds me of the time Crazy New Daddy changed his wife-beating ways: I put in my diary that I’d call the cops if I ever saw another bruise on Flaky Birth Mother. SHAZAM no more visible bruises!
It also reminds me of the commercials where they substituted the brand name coffee for whatever the other person was drinking. ::whispered announcer dude voice:: we’ve substituted blog posts for direct communication within the office. . . let’s see what happens . . .
