    Ever reach a pivotal moment at work?

    I think I just had one today.

    I got real blunt in an exchange.

    That's all I feel comfortable saying right now.

    Anyone wanna share their experiences (hopefully they were in the past an not fluid, like mine)?

    I've had pivotal moments. Then I exchange a blunt and forget all about it.

    I hope venting here helps keep your cool. Alot of folks looking for work these days.

    Do the words "pivotal" and "blunt" mean you are now unemployed?

    I think I might have sexually harassed myself yesterday. I wonder if I should sue?:supergrin:

    I am really glad to be self-employed. I don't work and play well with others. Eric

    If you were taking advantage of yourself using the power of the BGH you should definitely sue.

    Its a definite "red light" to touch yourself in the workplace. HR will be contacting you soon.

    Become your own boss then you can control the interaction you will have with people on a daily basis. Perfect solution, no, but it sure makes the drama decrease.

    It's only harassment if you were offended. When you told yourself to do it again, I think you lost the right to be offended.

    I may have one of those moments in the next hour or so. We will see if my 4 years of hard work and unpaid overtime pay off

    I'm not quite sure you did any substantial sharing there.

    Sure. In the past, whenever I reached that 'pivotal' moment I submitted my 2 weeks notice.
    Now I'm self employed. I got tired of taking orders from some schmuck.

    i was always told you dont have to stand tall but you gotta stand up. its not in my nature to just take it and be happy. i would rather be happy and poor than rich and miserable.
