I think Fret is trying to pass all his work onto me. He tried getting me to do his mod work in NFL News yesterday, and now he's making me do his Poll of the Day.

So today's poll..


On a ten scale, how big of a moron is this guy?

Wait, no. That's not it.

5. I once walked into a screen door. It was dusk, so I didn't see it. The door popped out of its tracks.



Also, "On occasion, but only when I'm swamped with work." I've only done it if it is late (11-12 at night) and there is someone willing to help. Oddly, I have fond memories of working late. Confused

Not a moron at all. It was an honest mistake.

I would agree with this, but when I worked in jobs that allowed me to delegate (admin, etc), anyone that I could possibly delegate -to- was an idiot, so I just did it all myself anyway. XD Now I just do all the work because I -want- to. It's my responsibility, I'll take care of it all. It even trickled into how I am at home.. I don't like anyone else doing the laundry or dishes or other cleaning. My job, I'll do it.

Just jokes MNSF. Laughing


I won't give my work to anyone else, simply because my coworker is a lazy sack of crap, and him doing a halfassed job would get me into trouble.

X3 I really need to dig up some Orson Welles movies and watch 'em. His voice is friggin awesome. Totally unrelated to watching his movies, just thought I'd say that.

Actually.. I really do feel that taking care of the home is my job. Call me old-school, I don't mind being the caretaker of the home. I kinda like being the glue that holds everything together, though it has honestly sucked not being able to do it well lately because of my knee. -shrug- I like providing NSF with a relaxing place to call home when he gets off work. I know that's not the 'norm' today, but it used to be, and I wish it still was. But that will become an entirely different convo if I keep going, and I'd rather not totally derail the thread >_<

At work, though, I do my own work. Heck, I'll even take on extra just so everything gets done on time. I know managers and supervisors have enough employees they can't depend on for a single thing, figure I might as well be one they can depend on.

Option 4. If I have to much to do then I'll get someone else to help me do it.

Depends on what it is. Some work I'd rather eat glass than do mostly because it's pedantic and boring. That I pawn off as often as possible. If it's interesting to me I do it because it's interesting.
