Pillage…then burn.

Yah know…even I get days off every now and again.

Last Friday I was going to take a “comp” day…basically this is an undocumented day off to make up for those extra days put in at some other time. Yeah, I’m on salary. I haven’t made any overtime in a couple decades. Best as I can calculate…they owe me about 8.2 million comp days…


1) Friday was going to be a comp day. I was not supposed to be at work.
2) Friday is “business casual” dress.
3) A project at work suddenly became “urgent” (urgent is totally artificial, the issues and time-table are arbitrary, but there ya go).
4) Another “urgent” thing required a sort of spur of the moment meeting…
5) An eagerly awaited package arrived in the mail Thursday.

Thus it came to be…contrary to even the “casual Friday” dresscode…me wearing a black T-shirt that says, “Rule # 1, Pillage THEN burn” to a 7th floor corporate board-room meeting.

Not sure if that did my career any good…but I really don’t see what the problem could be…it IS part of our corporate SOP anyway…

Shirt is courtesy of Schlock Mercenary, and highly recommended for your next board meeting.
