Captain America

My New Clock

Posted on 2007.11.20 at 15:30
My boss's boss told him to tell me to get rid of a "Captain America" shield decorating the wall of my cube "because it does not represent the professional look that the company is striving towards." Symbols of patriotism, courage, and doing right are apparently not considered "Professional" at my workplace.

So I bought a wall-clock instead.

LOL!

Clocks are so professional.

I wonder what your boss's boss would say to me looking at all my HP calendars around my desk?

What?

It's professional!!!

You know, it never ceases to amaze me that a man who comes into the office singing, badly, and shouts obscenities throughout the day can even think he knows about professionalism.

nothing thrills you more than thinking you beat 'em at their own game, huh, L?

sarahenany used a line about pricking the overinflated baloon of egotistical bombast. Who can resist such a sport?

Boss Panic

I had a picture up on my barracks room door one year, a postcard of a couple of bare trees with the caption, "Sgt. Johnson was mortified that she was wearing the same costume as everyone else at the camouflage party..."

Also unprofessional, I was told.

Sometimes it's just too easy...

The Cap shields were Halloween costome props, but clocks and posters are easy to find.

Love it! I've been dealing with TOTALLY crazy boss's bosses lately, but since they're political appointees and can probably have me disappeared, I probably shouldn't elaborate. :) Fortunately, they haven't targeted our cubicles yet....

"SO, tell me again where she is?"

"In Qatar, being waterboarded."

"And why?"

"She put up Buscema Silver Surfer prints instead of Kirby!"

"Clearer cause for Extraordinary Rendition, I have never seen."

I bet you can! I had to get the clock "under the radar" -- i's not an officially licensed product -- but I'd be surprised if you couldn't get one with the FF's "4" logo.

Being able to wear that shirt automatically precludes any discussions of Professionalisim. (not that i'm dissing your shirt, the opposite, I'm jealous that you can wear it at work)

I need to personalize my desk.

I won't work where I can't dress this well. Quite truthfully, the conversation would go like that:

"We've decided that we're going to institute a professional dress code. You're going to have to wear a dress shirt and a tie."

"It's been nice working with you, and I trust you'll give a good reference. It'll probably take me a couple of trips to get my cubicle cleaned out. You want me to format my hard drive, or shall I just delete my personal stuff?"
