A short film I like with some awesome imagery.



And ewwww.

An office desk (supposedly, Lord I hope it's not true) has 400 times more bacteria then a toilet.

And my desk is a mess. I don't like this factoid. Not one bit.

*shudder*

It's too bad Silly Becky probably has only a specific amount of paid time off, or sick days she can use before Silly Becky becomes sad unemployed Becky. :( It's a really shitty situation out there for peoplethat get sick and the repercussions that are there for people taking care of themselves at a lot of workplaces.

I know.  This situation has gotten way out of hand in recent years in this country.  We have people using their sick days for vacation because they don't get enough vacation days to really relax and thus be better workers—and yet we also have many people who are so afraid (and often for good reason) of losing our jobs that they come in when they're sick and also don't go on their vacations.  Every solution is going to have drawbacks; but something needs to change with this workaholism.  It seems that both employers and employees have forgotten what kinds of schedules and workloads lead to healthy, productive, happy workforces.  The last long office job I had, I didn't have benefits until I'd been there more than a year, and I didn't get paid when I wasn't there—so I took only a single day off in my first whole year there.  Did working all those days without a break make me a more valuable employee?  In somebody's eyes, probably yes.  In reality, probably no.
