Like you say, you can find them on the internet, so once you graduate, that info is at one's fingertips.

That should be in KKKUSA's how do you justify stealing thread.

What looks like stealing, here? Looking it up on line?

A $500 textbook is plenty of justification. Smile

It's fighting with the Travel office people who never seem to know how to do their jobs. "We need an actual receipt, not just a reservation confirmation." It says "confirmation number" on it, has each day and the taxes broken down on it, and is stapled to the email from them that says "your Hilton receipt". Just because it doesn't say the word "receipt" on the actual receipt, doesn't make it not a receipt. Also the reason you got the link to the program online instead of the "copy of the program we requested" is, as I told you, because I'm not copying 400+ pages for you when you can click a hyperlink. Now reimburse me the thousand dollars because I have to pay it off on a corporate credit card by the end of the month, and they don't allow minimum payments, only payment in full.

I feel your pain. I used to work for a company that periodically sent me overseas (to countries with different currencies), and expense accounts were always a pain. My way to do them was to convert whatever advance they gave me into Deutsch Marks or British pounds, keep my expense account in that currency, and then convert back at the end. But no -- they wanted me to convert each individual expense to US dollars before logging it. In addition to making a lot more busy work for me, this also led to the confusion of which exchange rate to use, since it changes every day. I was never able to make them see it my way, so I would do it both ways, and any money that I lost because of changing exchange rates, I would add on as a miscellaneous expense.

I got lucky that way. When I traveled, I was issued full per diem in advance and was told I was on my own. I only lost money once because I brain farted and threw out some receipts. Laughat

RE: Ranting corner
God damn my female flatmate is pissing me off lately. Must be her time of month.
She's having a go at me on facebook for not bring my plate out of my room claiming it's been in here for days on end.
I'm trying to explain to her that I use a new plate every day and bring out my dirty plate and what she sees as the same plate for days on end is actually 3 different plates over three days. But she's an idiot, I mean women so her brain is incapable of comprehending such logic. I'm not even this bitches boyfriend she needs to back the fuck off.

He's reading something to me from his class, and he stumbles onto a question. "Why do women need to get a period every month? Why not every week, or why not once a year?
"Are you asking rhetorically or are you asking me?"
"Well, I'd like an answer, but I don't think you can actually answer this."

Dodgy

Well, I'm sure I have other things to do anyway.

RE: Ranting corner
At work.

Is the final few hours of a twelve hour shift. I'm 'lucky' enough to be manning the concierge desk.

Worker waltzes through the door... it's four in the morning... they're bright as a button as I am looking down perusing internet on phone.

"You’re looking a bit asleep there mate."

Are the first words of 'greeting' out of their mouth.....

UNGRATEFUL FEKKERS!!!!

Instant "Push button for atomic explosion" reaction from me.... quickly strangled as 'Good customer service' reactions kick in an I greet them with a good morning and off hand comment about the weather.

Still... current urge to beat some one to death with a spoon is running high.

(>_<)
