1. What is one thing that worries you right now?

2. Does the weather by you think it is fall/winter/spring or summer?

3. How is your calendar for October? Slow, medium, busy?

Well, one has to backpedal, don't you know?  But It seems a lot of people bother morty.

I'm pretty sure the previous incarnation of Morty did.

Empty - I think any job well done is a worthwhile enterprise.

But you just said that you mostly don't go during the day,  now you do?  Really...make up your mind already.

<<I didn't say I COULDN'T go to the bathroom. Most of the time I don't. I work.>>

No you said the only breaks you take are at lunch.  Are you actually claiming that you do nothing personal during work hours, you never post on village or facebook during those hours?

<<All the way? 3 1/2 miles is not going to kill me and if I REALLY had to go at work, then I COULD go. I don't find the need just to go if I have work to do and don't have to go. >>

Well, that's at least 10-15 minutes that you leave work, why can't you go at work?

<<Do you take any personal breaks during the day, other than lunch?

Nope>>

OH boy....this is funny and so unbelievable.

I manage a staff and I do have hiring and firing responsibilities. I've had to fire 2 people on my management tenure an I hated to do it, even for cause bacause they had children to support. I do get paid very well according to Morty's standards.

I spend much more time at the beach than here.

Thardy - There was a time when internet did not exist and productivityin the workplace was a faction of what it is now.

I work for a software company that consults with the NSA - Employers have powerful tools to monitor anything employees do. Most employees are productive and compliant, and they are not fully aware that big brother is watching. They still are good corporate workers with few exceptions that are caught by our system auditing programs.

The definition of theft and stealing is taking something without legal right or permission. We have clearly defined guidelines on internet usage and I have never violated it. No one has ever complained about my work ethic.

I  was fairly poor growing up, definitely eligible for Pell grants, and I am fabulously compensated for a career that I enjoy, LOL your slam on my possible salary non-withstanding believe me, Morty would kill for it. The employees that I manage are well-compensated (some make more than me), principled and they often play on the internet. If they miss the metrics on performance, I may address internet usage, but I've never had to.

I guess I am the exception to the "well-compensated, principled employees and employers do not play on the internet as much as you do"

Jams, Morty and you seem to "play" here a lot more than I do by posting history, but why let facts interfere with you fiction.

Wow...so you are saying because Morty doesn't have a job where she manages people or makes a lot of money, it's okay for her to play on the internet for hours at a time.  Ouch, poor Morty.
