I show up 15-20 minutes late half the time...

Sometimes I get really drunk and show up half an hour late...

Most of the time I never get more than a "Good afternoon Will".

Sometimes I leave for lunch early...

Most of the time I leave work half an hour early...

It's just as well though, cuz I keep a squeaky clean image ;)

Sometimes we even drink at work (Everyone else does. Some people keep booze in their desks in case a random party breaks out).

The perks are unbeliveable too. On top of the benefits (dental & medical), we get tons of perks, movies, merchandise etc. etc.

Several of our suppliers give us perks to try and bribe us to continue doing business with them. The other day we got box seats to the Raptors game. Now, we're getting box seats to a Leaf's game.

I think I'll run out and get a 6-pack.

Well, it's not like I make a lot of money or have a glamorous job, but it's decent.

I just hate getting emails all the time from my boss...

"I'll be out of the office for the afternoon, if you need me I'll have my Blackberry & Cell"

So tempting to just go home...

When it comes to pure L2 switching, a switch is a switch is a switch, but when it comes to invoking features like QoS, LAN security, etc...it sucks balzz. That's my technical evaluation. The one saving grace is split/distributed multilink trunking.

They're actually pretty cheap compared to Cisco. Which is why our sales guys have a hardon for them - more margin.

Explains why pr0nstar uses em too. :p

Yeah... my company owns a suite... 5 Rows from the Ice... 15 Rows from the Court... I would say I have been privileged enough to go about 5 times in 3 years...

We too have subs/suppliers who give us tickets... probably been to about 10 games that way... those tickets usually aren't as nice as the suite though...

We also drink every friday at 4... its comes from the beer fund which we never seem to have to contribute too :)

Plus there are tons of other free shit (I haven't had to buy a jacket in 3 years... the countless free rounds of golf... endless free lunches)

I love my job for that reason and many more... I was one of those people who thought it not possible to love what they do... but I proved myself wrong...

I just need to convince them to pay me more so I can get out of school debt...

Sounds like a sweet gig. Good on you.

The perks are so nice when you get them. Makes everything else a little more bearable.
