You owe me 3:23. I want it back! I'm going home now to see if I can drown those brain cells with alcohol and forget that noxious jingle.

A friend of mine, who is a licenced curmudgeon, once raised his hand at an employee meeting held by one of the big PC/electronics resellers. This was in response to the question, "How can we make working here more fun?" He made this obeservation: "I don't come here to have fun, I come here to work and be paid for it. If I wanted to have fun, I'd be out doing any of the hundreds of things I do for fun, and I wouldn't expect to get paid." The rest of it went something like, "Ask me how you can improve my working conditions and if I become more efficient and the company makes more money, put it in the envelope."

Needless to say, he is not too popular around rah-rah Amway manager types.
