Note to self: stop being an email idiot

Never send your boss a long-winded and (you think) cynically witty email about how a particular person working in a high-level diplomatic post is, LOL, a total ass. Never assume your boss does not know this person personally. Invariably, not only will your boss know the individual in question, he or she will be a close friend of theirs and will respond with “Actually, I talked to [NAME] just yesterday and we’re going to be on a panel together this weekend.”

Lucky for me, I am kept around the office for entertainment value as much as anything else.

Just another day at the office with this dumbass.

  1. Steve, I can’t imagine the kind of Albany Thanksgiving you must be having for you to be reading my blog right now. It is nice to see that you stopped by, though, seriously.
