Nitpicking but Hbob hasnt solved the NBA.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & Reading is FUNdamental

So in addition to Duke not making the Final 4 this weekend my whole week just got ruined. I was supposed to have jury duty, but found out I was excused last night. This morning my boss decides to tell me that he had to turn down a Masters ticket for me for a few days this week because he couldn't wait on the offer until I found out if I had jury duty. Nut low Monday already.

Why did you tell the office that you got out of jury duty? Looks like you cost yourself a paid day off right there.

Seems like a pretty unethical thing to do.

Meh. If you have a project-based or collaborative environment where people are counting on you to be in the office that's one thing. If you're just filling out TPS reports and occupying a seat all day then I don't see the big deal.

Elaborate on how I would go about this? Also, I respect and like my bosses so I don't really have a desire to disrespect them or slank away from work.

Well, its basically impossible to tell ahead of time how urgent things will be on a given day. Its been dead all morning, but I could be slammed at any moment.

I just find it incredibly hard to believe that, fundamentally, anything named "WhatsApp" can actually be worth a billion dollars.

Someone actually bought and paid for a BLT sandwich yesterday. Literally white toast, bacon, tomatoes, lettuce, and mayo. So pointless.
