This is not a role model, people.
This is what one partner said to the other, no less than 3' away from me:
Partner 1: Do you know they [the secretaries, etc.] get 4 sick days and 1 personal day?Partner 2: Really?Partner 1: It's a recession, they're lucky to have a job at all! I say we cut it down to 2 sick days and no personal days for next year.Partner 2: It's not like they're going anywhere.
I swear to you, that is what was said less than 5 minutes ago. Capitalism, it's fucking awesome.
