You are a sad strange little man, you have my sympathy.
This line was uttered by Buzz Lightyear in the original Toy Story movie and I believe it applies here. I have two bosses, we shall call them Boss 1 and Boss 2. Boss 1 is the senior representative of the government in our state. How does he spend his time? Doing something important? No he spends it running an experiment on our thermostats and went to far as to print up warning signs and place them on each thermostat in the building! Then we goes to each one and charts them according to the temperature and then adjusts the vents. He is almost fanatical about this. Boss 2 has his fingers in more honeypots than Winnie the Pooh. Whenever Boss 1 is out of the office Boss 2 parks in his spot as if it is his way of showing us underlings he is in charge. We are also in the process of a multiple information technology projects both of which are considered important. Matter of fact one is a government wide project and Boss 2 approaches me because he wants to ensure that his webshots screen saver program will work! Never mind anything important like e-mail or our payment system just webshots. Things could be worse, I could still be working at Bear Stearns!
