It’s probably safe to say that no one in high school every uttered the following:
I want to go to college for 4-5 (or more) years and go on to graduate school for a couple more, so I can work my ass off in a 6 by 8 foot, 3.5 walled equivalent of the corporate jail cell for the next 40+ years.
And, I’m no exception. I had goals and dreams of climbing the ladder fighting my way to the top. Getting an office and a cute assistant.
One thing I learned along the way…dreams die young.
So who am I? I’m a middle-aged, married guy with kids who’s been in the show (that’s what us pros call the work world) for about half my life. I’ve gone from junior positions to director positions and back to manager positions. From a cube, to an office, back to a cube, back to an office and back to the cube where I dwell today. I’m what they call a “Repeat Offender” <cue Raising Arizona music>.
After all… I’m just a guy, sitting in front multiple monitors, hoping to get through the day.
Creator of the word – Absofuckingtabulous. Yes, it is too a word and I will not rest until I see it in a mainstream dictionary.
