More hilarity.  Jim was boinking Lilly.  Jim's wife found out, and called their old friend Mike T, who just happens to be president of NA operations.

Jim got retired.  Lilly is still here. 

All the projects that are failing are gathering up, and are about due to be hung around the plant manager's neck.  And the plant manager is now...Lilly.

Mike T has a vicious sense of vengeance.

(I have to say that I am absolutely stunned that Jim, the quintessential good boy, was cheating.  Especially given that his wife is prettier than Lilly, smarter than Lilly, and - unlike Lilly - has emotions beyond those possessed by reptiles.)

Needless to say, I am willing to help this train wreck along.  Oh, yes.  Jim is the best boss I ever had, regardless of his personal failings, and I will have revenge.

WHOA.

Oh, that's messy as fuck.

It is probably in the top 3 shocks of my lifetime.

Hoooo boy. Sounds like that particular Temple of Eris is about to get a BIG remodeling.

Glad you've got an escape plan. Looking forward to takes of the fallout.

I am going to start sound recording with my smartphone.

Mike T sounds like a man you don't want to piss off.  That's a fairly inspired bit of vengeance.

Hey Roger, maybe when Lilly is gone, you could apply for Jim's old job.  You may not be the management the plant wants, but you're the management the plant needs.

Hell no.  Every man needs to know his limitations, and I lack the political savvy to survive at that altitude.

Besides, the stress of that job destroyed Jim.  It ran him down to the point where fucking Lilly seemed like a reasonable idea.

Holy shit.

Can you let us know how far back we need to be to avoid the blast radius?

These things are better when you get the horrible gooey bits all over you.

Full speed ahead, my good man.

Need to make sure you reach escape velocity by the time it's taken TO THE WALL.

No.  I have to get the FULL EFFECT.

Besides, I already have written (well, email) job offers from 7 of our vendors.  And one competitor.

Please tell me she wrote that down in a "demostrable evidence for HR" sort of way.

Yep.

It's in the databomb.  When I don't log in for 5 consecutive days, it all goes to HR.

Though probably I will just send it on Monday.

What in the holy hell is happening down there?

Not sure.

But I am now going to do what I said I was going to do 7.5 years ago.  I am going to bust out of this place like a chest-burster in Alien, and get my angry all over everyone's shoes.

I told my crew that I won't be staying, and they're all starting to pack up their shit, because only assholes and the ineffectual remain on the management team.

Oh, and I just got an email from Lilly informing me that she has cancelled all the training my guys were supposed to get on the new robotics.

Because - I shit you not - none of us are smart enough to understand it.

Leonard Nimoy has died.   :cry: :cry: :cry:

Lilly has just announced that my guys are not capable of performing a simple pressure survey, and is sending Mike along with them instead of me.  Bear in mind that Mike tried to do this yesterday, and gave a result of a differential pressure between a 95 PSI line and an unknown level of vacuum.

I cannot decide whether to quit or become really stupid and join this shit to death.

My boss (Jim) quit today.  Well, retired without notice, but you know what I mean.

Lilly is at least temporarily in charge - which is a bad thing - but despite the fact that she is an intelligent woman, she is happy about this.  This facility is just beginning to shit the bed in a major way, and she thinks she just got promoted.  What's really happened is that a noose has dropped from on high, to land around her neck.

After all, with all these projects being fucked up - which Mike did, and Jim unable or unwilling to stop him - someone with the words "plant manager" on his/her forehead is going to have to pay.  And Jim just skipped out on the bar tab.

Whoa.

Dude.

This is ominous.

Oh, yeah.  I'm toast, unless I want to work for the Science Gestapo full time, which I am not willing to do for family reasons (I'd be in Germany and both my and Jenn's parents are elderly and ailing). 

I do not expect to last until the next fiscal year (June), at least partially because Lilly thinks she knows enough to fill my shoes as well (HAR!).

I am strangely okay with this.

I can only see beautiful things in the future for you.

Dude, I don't expect to be working here in 12 weeks.   :lulz:
