Well boys I am officially on paid admin leave. Made a comment that was taken out of context so now it's time to find another means of income. Toss one up for us if you get a chance.

Have you thought about food sales?

There are several ex chefs that have worked for us in the past and seem to be pretty good at the job.

I work for corporate America and you have to know your audience. I cut up only around a few friends at work.

I'd be curious to know what you said also. I'll put a bet on it that I've said much worse, I had the office rolling today! Boss said something about a white creamy substance and I took over the sales meeting from there for a good 5 minutes.

I agree with this 100% but you have to watch out for 3rd party offending. I got in trouble for that at my job. Was talking directly to a close friend away from everyone. 3rd party overheard bits and pieces of the comments and went to our admin. Well lets just say I got a 3 week vacation. I've also got in trouble for stuff I send to a friend through email cause they pulled out email boxes to look to see what we were sending and receiving.
