    Informal Fitness Reports (Humor)

    A Fitness Report is, in the Military and Naval Services of the United States, an evaluation of an officer or sergeant's leadership. Think of it as a performance appraisal, with certain formalities dictated by regulations and customs of the service. The formal language can be dry and understated, but informal statements tend to be rather pithy,

    Update: I Didn't Get the Job...

    ... But the asshole didn't get it, either. It went to my partner, who's been in the business even longer than I have, with broader experience with other labs. Being as objective about it as I can, you couldn't ask for a better choice. Funny, the sloths seem to be picking up their game a bit. The asshole isn't too happy, but he seems to be dealing with it, for now. Time will tell.

    So, a funny thing happened about a month and a half ago (Job-related)

    My boss made no secret of his intention of retiring at the end of July. I didn't really have much time to think about it - the backlogs keep getting worse, and the court dates keep piling up, and I was too busy sled-dogging it to lift my head to look past the ass end of the dogs in front of me.

To Really Screw Thngs Up.... · 12:58am Dec 23rd, 2015

...You need a lawyer.

Don't misunderstand. I have no issue with lawyers in general. Back when I was in uniform and spending my days in traffic court, I actually got along better with most of the defense bar than I did with the assistant County Attorneys. They serve an absolutely vital role, and I'm glad they're around.

Funny thing I've noticed about myself, though. When I start to grow exasperated with them, I start reciting lawyer jokes. And, after two days spent reviewing, copying, scanning, and burning CDs of a forty-page case file, three dozen photos, and drafting an animated slideshow of charts and slideshows, in order to answer a very shotgunny court order for supplemental discovery, I've been dredging them up.

The Bar Association scheduled a convention in a resort near Cape Hatteras, on North Carolina's Outer Banks. When asked if he wasn't concerned about the recent reports of shark attacks, the organizer replied, "No, we won't have any trouble with sharks. Professional courtesy, don't you know..."

Terrorists hijacked a plane full of lawyers. They threatened that one lawyer would be released unharmed until their demands were met...

Usually, the difference between a lawyer and a liar is nothing more than the slip of a forked tongue...

Merry Christmas, indeed...:facehoof:
