Monday Night Open Thread

Harvey’s back, as you noticed. I guess that means he made bail.

He didn’t waste any time getting back to business, though. He called me into his office, checked the time cards and IIS logs, and proceeded to let me know that I wasn’t pulling my weight around here. You see, Frank J simply signs the checks. Harvey makes them out. And he told me that if I wanted to say on the payroll, I’d have to be posting at least one more post per day. And do a better job of keeping soap in the dispensers in the restrooms.

So, now that the soap dispensers are full (well, there’s the broken one on the 3rd floor, but I’m waiting on maintenance to replace that), it’s time for me to write a post.

I looking in the Employee Handbook — they call it Team Member’s Guide, if you can believe that — and found out there was nothing to keep me from doing an Open Thread post.

So, being the goldbrick I am, I’m turning it over to you. What’s on your mind? Know any good jokes? Any bad jokes? Got a link to share? It’s Monday Night Open Thread.

Speaking at the “Women in the World Summit” in New York Hillary Clinton blamed her election defeat on “misogyny“.

Really? I didn’t know the FBI was investigating her for that, too.

I always thought it was really weird that they forced you to buy the hardcover version of these books. It’s not like they needed to be durable. They’re only good for one semester anyway.
