IJMC - I Want My MTV

You might wonder what the title has to do with tonight's IJMC post. Well, 
so do I. It just felt appropriate, but then it is 1am for me and I've 
been awake since about six am. Not a big deal...but I never thought I'd 
get used to waking up at an ungodly hour like 6:00 in the morning. But 
hey, less than one week...and well...I'm almost used to it. Enjoy today's 
IJMC, it should go well with your second cup of coffee for those in the 
offices of the world.                                               -dave

P.S. Jennifer, I think you should take note of the "Accident Victims" 
one, it might strike a certain cord...longer e-mail later.

  Quote from a recent meeting: "We are going to continue having these
  meetings, everyday, until I find out why no work is getting done".

  Quote from the Boss... "I didn't say it was your fault. I said I was
  going to blame it on you."

  A motivational sign at work: The beatings will continue until morale

  A direct quote from the Boss: "We passed over a lot of good people to
  get the ones we hired."

  My Boss frequently gets lost in thought. That's because it's
  unfamiliar territory.

  My Boss said to me " What you see as a glass ceiling, I see as a
  protective barrier.

  My Boss needs a surge protector. That way his mouth would be buffered
  from surprise spikes in his brain.

  I thought my Boss was a jerk, and quit, to work for myself. My new
  Boss is a jerk, too ... but at least I respect him.

  He's given automobile accident victims new hope for recovery. He
  walks, talks and performs rudimentary tasks, all without the benefit
  of a SPINE.

  Some people climb the ladder of success. My Boss walked under it.

  Quote from the Boss after overriding the decision of a task force he
  created to find a solution: " I'm sorry if I ever gave you the
  impression your input would have any effect on my decision for the
  outcome of this project!"

  HR Manager to job candidate "I see you've had no computer training.
  Although that qualifies you for upper management, it means you're
  under-qualified for our entry level positions."

  Quote from telephone inquiry "We're only hiring one summer intern this
  year and we won't start interviewing candidates for that position
  until the Boss' daughter finishes her summer classes.
