(Mental Floss)   Why does the back of your lower leg have the same name as a baby cow? How come the bottom of your foot has the name of a fish?   (mentalfloss.com) divider line 20

I got fired from my first real job because a woman who had been there for 20 years decided she didn't like me coming in 2, 3, 5 minutes late all the time. I always stayed late to make up for it, so I thought what's the big deal. Eventually she took it to management and got a rule made that if an employee was late more than 3 times in 30 days, they were to be fired. Then she talked them into making it retroactive 30 days. Godawful harpy.

Job now I have to be in around 9-ish, just make your forty at least and you're good. Boss frowns upon the second beer at lunch if you are the one driving.

I like the rules about not eating smelly stuff at one's desk. Last place I worked there was a guy who ate some kind of microwaved fish at his desk every day. Nasty.
