Oh, at IE 100% level. Twas a time I had profited.

"Too much competition, no chance for promotion, why try" says PhD leaving to go drive a taxi.
Once I realized nearly everyone else had given up, as well, I realized the odds may not be so bad after all so I, tried more, and got to be best (along with admirable performance goes the directed feelings of disgust, being despised, one to 'have to put up with', not so dissimilar to that for shirker - when you also need to do their portion of work_load). Merit can have a benefit, but it does not last long.

I learned a new slang phrase - "she is trying to ride your donkey."  This takes some explaining.  It goes like this.  A self-important person is trying to get you to do something for you, free.  And, it seems to come from Jesus riding the donkey into town.

Appears Dilbert has value.

Been offline awhile, much to learn on changes here & new interface. Having processed a separate MQ will attempt to divide the offer of 50 as an even split of 100 each.
