This is Why You Want to Work a Government Job

Skips work for 6 years and nobody notices!

At my first job, it took them until I was there over 7 years to get me my 5 year service award. When they handed it to me I corrected the big boss handing it out when he said "it's hard to believe he's been here 5 years..."
Me: "because it's actually been 7 years".
Private company, BTW.

"But the water company thought the city council was in charge of GarcĂ­a, while the city council thought the water company was in charge of him."

You know, nothing quite says bullshit the way a "he said she said" squabble over "whose responsibility is it?" does.

My first job after leaving the Air Force was for a private company. I ended up being used as a grunt rather than as what I was hired for, being paid peanuts for doing dangerous work while having to put up with the boss's son. Now, I actually have a job where the job I do is what I was hired to do, and I get paid almost twice what I used to. Yeah, I'm for a free market but most private businesses and corporations are just as fucked up as the government these days.

Hell, if it weren't for the encroaching PC bullshit, seeing a good man's life destroyed by a false rape accusation, and all the pointless foreign wars being fought for the sake of the defense corporations, I'd probably have stayed in the AF.

I'm just surprised he has been offered a high-lever administrative position at the VA.
