Desperate Working Mommas
Your one-stop site for fanatical television snarking, questionable political analysis, occasional attempts to address the parenting issues facing working mothers, and halfhearted promises to stop obsessing about the entertainment industry, already! Oh, not to mention the random bitching and moaning. There's always that.

Top Ten Things You Should Probably Never Say to Your Boss if, You Know, You Like Employment and All

10. "Deadline? What deadline?" (variation: "Deadline, shmeadline!")

9. When the boss says, "Good morning," quickly reply, "Oh is it?"

8. Leave long pauses in your conversations at random moments. When your boss is prompted to interject shout, "I am NOT finished!"

7. "If anyone needs me, I'll be in the bathroom."

6. "Oh, did you mean, like, right now?"

5. During a staff meeting, pull a hamster from your pocket and suggest throwing it as a creative means of idea-exchange.

4. "My cubicle isn't properly laid out according to feng shui. I'm going to have to be moved to get my chi balanced...preferably to an office with a window."

3. "Loser says what?"

2. When nearly done with a long-winded, excruciatingly dull report, announce, "No, wait, I messed it up," and repeat.

And the number one thing you should never say to your boss:

1. "You're not the boss of me!"

Hi, Cat. Been visiting and just wanted to say hello. I've seen your name around, and your comments made me laugh, so I came over to see you, and yep, you're funny at home, too;)

Hey! It's "What Was I Thinking?" lady! I've seen your name bandied about as well. Hey there! It's seriously SO nice when someone leaves a comment like that, so thanks. :)

Ooooh, by the way: do you have WWIT jewelry? That'd be cool. I'd buy it.

I just have the one bracelet, here: http://uhohnowlook.blogspot.com/2005/03/10-things-about-me.html
But I like the idea; I can get cheap child labor. I'm gonna work on that;)

Susie! Awesome bracelet! I'm all for child labor. that's why I had three. They may all be under ten, but whoo-wee! They can vacuum, scrub toilets, and clean dishes like nobody's business!

Heh. Aaron Neville! He's, like, the ANTI-Barry White, right? Yep. Dude's a hard nut to crack, but everybody plays the fool. Sometimes. But what can I say? I mean, for every boy there's a girl, and you're his, I suppose. Don't worry, I won't take away your heaven, mmkay? Sure, look at this man, so blessed with inspiration. Look at his soul, still searching for salvation! You know what? I don't know much, but I know you love him. And that? Well, it may be all I need to know.

Please, somebody stop me before I hurt myself. Intervention! Intervention!
