I've been a very naughty girl

I had supervision today. I thought it was going quite well until right at the end my boss took me to task about some shocking behaviour on my part. Apparently I caused some consternation in a recent team meeting when I got up and went to the kitchen (within spitting distance and in full view of the team) and made myself a cuppa soup. Well it was either that or sink into the arms of Morpheus. I'd been fighting insensibility for about half an hour and knew I just had to do something to wake myself up. I thought it was a jolly good idea. Apparently I was wrong. Apparently, in future, I am to request a five minute comfort break for all, should I feel narcolepsy beckoning. Ye gods, you'd think I'd buggered the bursar.

I wonder what they'd have done if you'd drifted off to sleep?

My nephew is in London studying this summer. Haven't heard much from him so he must be having fun.

your boss was right. you should have raised your hand. and said. this is as boring as all cornbreadhell. i hereby call for a cuppa soup makin' break! any seconds on that motion?

said with a smile, you might not get fired. or even demoted.

ps - 'buggered the bursar' is ffunny.

Cornbread, you are a funny guy.
Come back to us.

lily, thats not as bad as what I did. I decided to call my bosses boss and straighten his arse out.
I went on a major tirade, and there was a moment of silence before he quite calmly said
"bulletholes, what are you so mad about?"
And at that point I couldn't really say...I was just....mad!

I have an idea, why don't you all come to the next team meeting, you could work out a rota for poking me in the ribs whenever my eyes start to cross :-)

I like that de-motivational Poster that says:
"Meetings...None of us is as dumb as all of us"
