    One ex-boss once asked me, "A donkey works without thinking. A monkey gets work done for him. Which animal would you want to be?"

    Problem is when everyone wants to be a monkey.

    Reminds me of a organizational behavior class where very few people had a clue of what needed to be done but everyone wanted to be in charge.

    HK47: As do I. It is our lot in life I suppose master. Shall we find something to kill to cheer ourselves up?

    How to respond to A if A said, "B looked down upon you" which you do not mind.

    You don't mind B looking down upon you due to apathy or due to recognition of B's superiority?

    It's relaxing if you have fun clients. I'm stressed from my other job and life. I need a vacation...

    I never understand the "BUNNY" and "EGG" concept for EASTER.

    Why eggs and bunnies?
    While an important Christian holiday, many of the traditions associated with Easter were borrowed from Pagan rituals associated with Spring.

    There is an unconfirmed theory that Easter is named for Eostre - the ancient goddess of fertility.

    Rabbits are traditionally a symbol of fertility and new life, and myths of the bunnies laying eggs were published in the 15th and 16th centuries in Europe.

    Other animals have also been associated with Easter, such as the Cuckoo in Switzerland, and the fox or stork in Germany.

    Eggs are also linked to fertility, but a more likely reason they are so popular on Easter is that they were banned along with other foods during Lent.

    Eggs laid the week before Easter were saved and decorated, and given to children as gifts. Chocolate eggs appeared in France and Germany in the 19th century.
