i'm not sure if i should be flattered, or offended

Big news: we didn't win Powerball.

As if that wasn't depressing enough, i had this extremely disturbing conversation with my boss this morning:

My boss comes in, sits down, and asks for a piece of paper.

I pick up my Post-it pad and rip off the top piece of paper.

KK: "You don't want this piece, ha ha, it has the Powerball numbers on it. Obviously I didn't win, because I'm here today."

BOSS: "Come on, KK! Even if you did win, you'd still come to work every day."

All bosses have to believe everyone is "sold out" for their company to sleep at night.

If they only knew the truth.

I won $15 and plan to buy a bottle of coconut suntan oil and PRETEND I'm on a tropical island.

I agree with the Ventilator....but remember we are just a number.

I'll sit on the fence for this one - my boss would like to think I'd stay but I know damn well I wouldn't!

I wouldnt work... I think I'd be in school forever. Then again, I think I need to play to even have a chance.

HA. I used to say that I would still work, and then I got a full-time job :)
