Am I being to sensitive?

I don't consider myself sentimental at all. I've just never been into mushy stuff. There are things I hold dear though its just they are few and far between. Memories and dates hold meaning to me though. I'm silly like that, anyway next Wednesday is the birthday of one of the few people of import to me. Unfortunately this person is no longer with us.

I requested the day off three weeks in advance normally this shouldn't be a problem. However I got a call today that I had to come in that day due to a meeting. Well meetings are utterly useless for me I am the only one in my department that handles my job. So basically I'm not covered I just sit there quietly and listen to everyone else mouth off suggestions. If I had a problem I could just call my boss to deal with it there is no reason for me to go to a meeting all the way out in Long Island.

So I explained the situation to him. He basically told me there were no exceptions to be made. Told me I should do so on the weekend or after. Well after is impossible and so is before. On the weekend was plain unacceptable to me. So I told him plain and simply that I wouldn't be showing. He said then well be prepared to face the consequences. WTF am I in kindergarten threatening me like some school bully. I wanted to tell him off it took all my restraint not to. Doing so would have gotten me canned so instead I simply said ok.

Am I being ridiculous? What would you do?

I don’t think you are being ridiculous. You requested that particular day off three weeks in advance. What if you were scheduled to be on vacation in California that entire week? Then what? I think this individual is a control freak. Employees need to feel they have some control over their work schedule and that vacation requests made within a reasonable and responsible matter of time will be honored and not canceled on a whim. It is demoralizing.

What would I do? Well, what can you do? Your hands are tied into an “either/or” type of situation. I guess I would strive to honor this individual’s birthday as best I can with a promise that you will do everything in your power to extricate yourself from such an irrational, disrespectful employer as soon as humanely possible.

People are fools. It is amazing how well people respond to the kindness, courtesy and respect of an employer. Those three attributes are often more important than money and evoke more commitment and productivity than money could ever buy. Tsk, tsk, tsk.

No, you aren't being ridiculous, your boss is. Does he have a boss? I think this is one of those cases where you have a right to file a complaint if you possibly can. Your boss sounds like an insensitive turd.

Hey Flagg,

No you are not being ridiculous. Your boss is being an asshole. But the world is filled with bosses who are assholes and you have to learn to deal with it. I assume you are not a union employee or this would not be happening.

I am what is known as an "exempt employee" which means that most labor laws do not apply to me. I serve at the will of my employer. Since I am now a company vice president, I am also expected to perform. If it means working weekends and all night to get the job done, that is what I have to do to succeed.

However, my firm is very professional and honoring vacation time and special events of members of the firm is part of the firm culture. I would never be expected to come in from a day off just to attend a meeting. If it were something that was important, I could call in and do the meeting by speaker phone. That is the way professionals do things. All though, I have had to do some work by FAX and email while on vacation if something big hit in the media that I had to handle for my firm.

To bad you are working with a bunch of monkeys. It reminds of the commercial for a well known job finding website.

Depending on your status in the company or how the company does business you may have little choice to comply. Calling in sick at this point would been seen as a ruse at this point and may even make things worse. what would they do if you had rented a beach house or had no-refundable airline tickets or reservations at a resort.

It seems that you company has a piss poor HR department to let something like this happen. Coming in just for a staff meeting is bullshit.

You got to assess whether you can get fired over this, how it will affect your career at this company or how getting fired would be on your resumes. Not always good choices bu life isn't fair. Reality sucks sometimes.

One thing I've discovered over the years is most "managers" have no idea of how to manage. If you needed to be at that particular meeting, the meeting would have been important enough for him to know it was going to happen at the time you asked to take off that day.

I spent many hundreds of hours in meetings which accomplished nothing. When I moved into management, I NEVER held meetings. I did talk with the people I had responsibility for. That was adequate to get the job done. There were always "technical" meetings, which involved technical issues and yet if someone wasn't present, then their input was acquired later on - if necessary.

Unless a meeting is a brainstorming session, a memo will suffice because no one manages by committee. So a dictate can be handled by telling everyone involved exactly what you want from them. If they are managing by committee, I would recommend you find another job and quick - they won't be in business for much longer. But, if they are, you will never go any farther than where you are right this minute. Think on it.

Dear Flagg,

I would never describe you as "sensitive". However I would use the words "self absorbed', "egocentric" amd "prone to bouts of self pitying melancholia". Also is a "friend of some import" kind of like a Mail Order Bride from Russia that you import? Perhaps people would take you seriously if you stopped using Arcahic terms such as "Hence "and "Whilst" in order to be psuedo intellectual?We all know you are a stockboy in a grocery store.

    Dear John,

    Oddly enough, I would give the exact same description of you.

    Everyone knows you're just jealous of Flagg. As you said elsewhere (with that incomparable original wit of yours), "denial ain't just a river in Egypt."

    One who wishes to accuse another of being a pseudo-intellectual should at least spell the term correctly.
Dear Fuckwit oops sorry I mean John, please see post above by Sheeana...LMAO girl I loved what you said. Also, it is Flagg's blog so he gets to write whatever the fucking hell he wants. If you don't like it, don't read it....bye and don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out but hey don't go away mad, just go away. Okay Flagg baby, I turn things back over to you.

Hey, lizard-lizard-lizard a/k/a John B.---

What? No dictionaries in Australia? Surely your good mate, John, at Matilda's book store in Mount Waverley, ought to be able to hook you up. Most “wordsmiths” can at least spell! Maybe fancying yourself a wordsmith is yet again one of your many delusions. Speaking of delusions, perhaps it is time to up your Mellaril as either your Schizophrenia is spinning out of control again or you are experiencing yet another psychotic episode.

[Johnny-Needs-To-Be-Good very generously, under one of his now expunged previous profiles, provided us with us FULL NAME. John provided the above information via his contributions as a renown contributor on the AllExperts website. Being the good guy that he deludes himself to be, he even provides readers with his personal email address. Ain’t that nice?]

Get well, Johnny boy!

***I am sure many of you have hosted concerns pertaining to the status of ole' Johnny B's health. To save you the trouble I have provided the following information gathered from the internet:

Mellaril (Thioridazine) is an anti psychotic drug of low-potency. Used in the treatment of disorganized and psychotic thinking. Also used to help treat false perceptions (e.g. hallucinations or delusions).

Medication Information:

Thioridazine Hydrochloride (generic) - Mellaril (brand)

Manufacturer: Novatis Pharmaceuticals, East Hanover, NJ (Mellaril); Alpharma, Baltimore (generic); Mylan Pharmaceuticals, Morgantown, WV (generic)

Classification: Antipsychotic

Yep, DBG, there's a lot more to old J.B. than has been uncovered, isn't there? It is AMAZING what a minor monetary investment can uncover these days via the Internet, with the help of a picture, a name, and a general location. Moreover, I love how disciplined people have been with all this information. It is fun to see it slowly show up all over AdultFriendFinder when least expected. He is nothing but a red-faced alcohol addict who overrates himself as a wordsmith. Why just look at the fat red-faced sot! He has “I am a drug and alcohol addict” written all over his well-receded hairline!

Dear SensuousWoman3,

I am actually flattered by the fact that you did so mch research on me. I do find it quite amusing that you actually had to spend some money to find out anything about me which is freely available on the Internet. Im my humble opinion that makes you a stupid cunt. I also think that Flagg could use some Mellaril. My suggestion to you is -

(a)Get a fucking life and

(b)Find a guy desperate enough to fuck you in the ass although you just might have to pay him to do it .

I also find it quite amusing that even though my identity and Email address is available for all to see I have yet to receive any Emails from anybody on this site. You all cower behind your psuedonyms and faceless profiles like little children afraid of the BIG BAD WOLF!Let's see if any of you have the guts or balls to "Put Up Or Shut Up" and send me a letter via my Email address. That would make it an "Even Playing Field" I think.

We do not "cower behind" our pseudonyms! We simply are not as STUPID AS YOU to out ourselves by posting our real name, dumbfuck! Not that I'm complaining---but I dont't see you're ugly mug posted on here any longer. Even playing field? John! You're a schizophrenic!!! IT IS an even playing field!

Now, YOU are the one that visits OUR BLOGS --- not the other way around. It's YOU who needs to give a fucking life, not me, not anybody else. YOu just can't seem to stay away. What? NO LIFE, JOhnny B. Fat-Boy? And while you're at it, find a guy desperate enough to fuck you in the ass, although you WILL have to pay him to do it. Suck his dick, while you're at it, too.

SSS: Well the point of making a request instead of calling in sick is that some people in the company don't use their sick days as they can collect them at the end of the year. Where personal days have to be used or you lose them.

The sick thing is definitely not a good idea I have a bullseye on my head as it is. I certainly don't need to make the target wider. I could call up HR and see what they have to say about this. Although I'd rather stay anonymous with them and that isn't going to happen. Besides no one ever likes when you reach over their head.

SW3: You are so right about it being demoralizing. I feel I am a puppet at the mans whim. To be placed and used however he so chooses. I honestly think its just a power play he hasn't liked me from the start. Though I'm sure he wants to avoid firing me at any cost and would rather I just up and quit...

Also you do get a lot further with kindness than expectations and a heavy hand. I would have moved heaven and earth for my old supervisor this one just gets my begrudging effort.

Real36C: He does have a boss...thats not someone I would turn to though. He's just as inhuman I've seen it in action. The only recourse is to ask HR that however will out me.

Header: Header you are right I am not a union employee. I do know how to deal with it believe me my patience is vast. The question is whether or not I should have to.

As far as this meeting goes it honestly has nothing to do with me at all. If he really needed to talk to me regarding my job he could do so at anytime. Whether by phone or coming out to meet me wherever I am working that day. So I fail to see the point honestly. Hes just a strict company man or so he says and if he makes exceptions for me everyone will expect it. Flawed logic if you ask me there are extenuating circumstances to any situation.

Solar: Oh this meeting crap is bullshit plain and simple its basically a list of this guy did this and that guy did that. Bunch of productivity results and basic review on how to go about doing there job also they give feedback on what they believe should be changed. Which of course management ignores as its always the same thing.

Now me I work for the Loss Prevention department as an auditor I basically do investigations to mainly on Point of Sale as thats where most of the company's loss is incurred but also on recieving, Bookeeping and the use of petty cash. There used to be three of us but the others moved on out of the company. So its just me while the rest are either security or plain clothes store detectives. All I am is basically an extension of them.

As for going any further thats a riot I am not going anywhere while he remains my boss. The only way I can move up is to change departments which I have been looking into.

TMK: Life is a Bea(T)ch isn't it sometimes. Well I can continue to make his life miserable I suppose. At least until I find another job.

Sexyeyes: Calling in sick would be a bad idea so would reaching over his head. Either way I would end up paying for it later. The only option is going to HR and that may backfire on me who knows.

John: I don't quite get what your fascination with me is but you follow me around like a puppy. Its really unflattering as I have made it known that I do not appreciate your presence. Also I am no stockboy though if I were I would have a union imagine that.

As for your comments regarding the fine SW3. Riddle me this how is it that you can ask others to get a life when you show a twisted obsession of following around a 25 year old man. Oh and just how much do you have to pay cleetus to sodomize you? Or using your own humor do you just Make him down 15 beers so he can see you as some hot chick?

Lastly no one emails you because honestly John no one really cares about you. You are an insignificant man who can only draw attention to himself by attacking others. In short your a dullard whose real life is a bore so you create drama here to live vicariously. The only one who really is hiding is you I wonder how people would react if you acted like this in public, or is that why you never get out.

BTW you are banned so deal with it.

Jazz: Oh don't feel sorry at all this loser has been following me around for about 4 months. Apparently he is upset that I no longer pay him any mind. I don't take any of what he says to heart. He has done this to my friends as well as attacking women as a whole. Feel free to beat this man into submission he is beyond my sympathy.

Rudy: Nope no pointy hair but he uses the nickname Tex and insists we all call him by that..errrrr okkk.

He does have the power to can me. He wont though because I will sit there and collect unemployment. If he does that's fine its not as though I wont be able to find a job before my finances become a problem.

DBG: No need to apologise he just seems to bring out the best in people sad as that is. Hopefully he returns to his hovel holding his tail between his legs.

Dear Sensuous Whore,

Have you noticed how that stupid old fuck Highpockets never mentions me anymore? I thought not. That is because after he revealed my identity the Administrators of this site gave him a choice to either apologize to me or they would cancel his membership. So the stupid old cunt send me an Email which I printed out and intent to frame one of these days.I am happy to forward a copy of his apology to anybody who wants it. Just send me an email

have a nice day you numb cunt.

you know something john, i was contemplating the intellect of some friends here and in my private life...
i have friends who's IQ run between 160-180.. they don't spend their time stalking blogs to harass... they certainly don't try to show off their intellectual superiority.. they don't act like they are somehow better then the next person.. they don't belittle others less gifted..

granted some have a harder time fitting into the mainstream because they don't function on the same level as the majority of society.. but they know how to behave in a civilized manner, and do so..

they have far better things to do with their time then look for places to post hateful and venomous sewage..
do you feel you are above anyone here? you aren't..

you could have the highest Mensa score on the planet but you are still a nasty asshole... i know you are not a double digit in the IQ dept. therefore you should know how better to conduct yourself.

you are very mean spirited.. does that make you proud? does that ease the pain of loneliness? is bitterness what comforts you?

Ah, now John, what in the world would you know about a “right mind”??? Hmmmm??? You had been go pop another Mellaril, old boy, you are exhibiting some of your severe behavioral problems such as combativeness and your explosive hyper-excitable behavior.

HighPockets never mentions you anymore because you’re not worthy. Besides, you’ve been banned from his blog. Yet, you silly fool, you continue to delude yourself with the idea that your posts are showing up on his blog anyway. Yep. Up the meds, fatboy.

Say what you will, John, but due to your lack of credibility and integrity, nobody believes your silly story about HighPockets being ordered to apologize to you by the site administrators. It is interesting to me that unlike you, HighPockets still has the original profile in tact. By the way, whatever happened to your original profile? Did the site administrators cancel your paid membership for a “failure to apologize”? Aw, pity.

So, Johnny-boy, I suggest you get a life. You look awfully lonesome and foolish traveling to blogs where you are not welcome. We all have our own lives and haven’t any need or desire to darken your door. Be well!

I also did some research.

People, look up Mark Breault.

Your brother in law is no better than David Koresh AKA Vernon Howell.

He wanted to take over the Davidians.

He got booted or he left voluntarily in 1990 and he spent his time trying to bring David Koresh down.

The only court reference I saw was where he went to court in Michigan as a witness in a child custody case.

He wasted no time writing a book after the disaster in 1993.

I read the reviews for that book on Amazon and they were not very flattering.

“…no guy in his right mind wants to fuck you.”

Dear Pig Face:

Now just exactly what would YOU know about a “right mind”???? Hmmmm? I do believe you are having yet another episode of disorganized thinking. FYI, Flagg removed all but two of my previous posts at MY request whereas the site administrators removed all 250+ from this entire site. A quick scroll through this thread will verify as such. Up the meds, goofy.

Wow! Now that is something to brag about! Thank you for letting us know that psychotic episodes and combativeness and/or explosive hyper-excitable behavior runs in the family. It is also of interest to note that your family is cuckoo enough to not only belong to a cult, but to aspire to overtake the Branch Davidians. My, now THAT'S impressive! I would have thought that drugs and alcohol would have incited your drug and alcohol problems but evidently you come by it naturally---it’s in the blood. Thank you for sharing.

It is rewarding that all of this has hit such a nerve with you that you have contacted attorneys and reduced yourself to making thinly veiled threats. What’s the deal flaccid dick? Can’t fight your own battles? Have to reduce yourself to calling in the Nazi German Mafia?

As they say in the land down under, G'day!

Besides, I do believe you TRIED to tell us all that you are not the individual who posted on the allexpert site. Therefore, why would I email somebody at the address listed on that site who you claim not to be? Evidently you must suffer from bi-polar syndrome as well---one minute you admit that particular "expert" is you, the next minute you deny it. Hmmmm, must be MORE of your DISORGANIZED THINKING.
