Not just retrieve it, but got his company investigated by law enforcement as well.
His company is an appliance sales outfit. They had more than a few violations.
I doubt he's popular with his coworkers right now, assuming he still has any.

Went on vacation for almost 2 weeks at the beginning of the month. My boss forgot to but in my vacation. But I'm salaried. So I got paid anyway and haven't lost any time. I'm torn between saying something just in case they catch it...and not saying a god damned thing.

Say nothing. Not your fault. Just be prepared for the reckoning to come at any time.

I mean...it's not your fault, right? Though you'd probably be obligated to mention it if you discovered it, sooo...

I put in for the vacation in early May and it was approved. Then it came out that HR had screwed up everyone's vacation balances. I lost like 9 hours or something like that. A friend lost 40 or so. Essentially they had not applied some approved vacation and had to re-figure everything. It was a huge thing they blamed on our fairly new partnership with ADP. If you had vacation you already put in for, you had to put in for it again after June 30. So on July 1 I put in for my vacation again and submitted it. It was approved by my manager who said that it already showed as approved in his system.

What probably happened was that he put it in the second time, they erased the old request and inadvertently removed the new. My boss knows he put it in and I know I put it in. And I have the approval emails to prove it.

I ain't saying shit.

Actor Danny Trejo of 'Machete' fame pulls young boy from overturned car

Trejo, 75, told television station KABC-TV he was on his way to an auto mechanic in L.A.’s Sylmar neighborhood when he saw a motorist run a red light and crash into another car, which flipped over onto its roof in the intersection.

The boy, strapped into his car seat in the back of the car, and his grandmother, who had been driving, were both trapped in the overturned, partially crushed vehicle.

Trejo and another bystander - a woman who identified herself as Monica Jackson - teamed up to free the child before emergency personnel arrived on the scene, they said. Jackson crawled in on one side of the wreck to unbuckle the boy from his car seat, and Trejo pulled the child out from the other side.

The actor said he had to calm the boy down before he was able to free the child.
“He was panicked, and I said, ‘OK, we have to use our superpowers,’ and so he screamed, ‘Superpowers!’ and we started yelling, ‘Superpowers,’” Trejo recounted. “We got kind of, like, a bond, I guess.”

I sometimes wonder how accurate things are on LinkedIn. Turns out not so much. I just got this:

Congratulate Rog Jaeger for 16 years at Bellevue Public Schools

Recognize that name? It's my former friend who is now in prison for 20 years on child porn charges. I don't think he'd be getting that congrats. He don't work there (or anywhere) no more.

So the Impossible Whopper is now available nationwide. Hopefully the local BK will have enough stock that I can get one.

Side note: apparently they're cooked on the same equipment as regular meat patties, so if one is trying to avoid any meat product at all, probably not an option.

Anyone else disturbed by Gorilla Glue commercials? They are all the same, a person laments a problem then a 600 lb gorilla appears to solve it. Do none of them worry that a 600 lb gorilla who is smarter than they are is in their basement?

Well, I mean, they're all smart enough not to try and throw a 600 lb gorilla out on his ass. Would you try & tell the gorilla "No you can't come in here"?

Your obscure capitalization strategy makes me believe you are either a rogue or a druid. At least 4th level. You are not to be trusted.

Hey, these are important questions to ask! We normalize the gorilla, and the next thing you know, the Statue of Liberty is sunk into the ocean and there's an ape face on the Lincoln Memorial. It's a slippery slope, I tells ya!

I'm just a simple level 1 fighter, a lumber jack by trade. I AM CERTAINLY NOT THE DARK DRAGON LORD, that would just be silly!

Wish I could say the same. Considering the Impossible burger I tried before, and the Beyond burgers I've made at home, BK comes in last. Just had a slightly unusual taste from the first bite, which caught me by surprise since I don't remember the other Impossible burger tasting like that. Not sure if that's simply a BK thing or if they have different iterations of the product or what.

I'll probably give it another go, but right now I'm pretty meh on it. Maybe there's a Red Robin nearby I can try.

See, I ate a lot of Whoppers before I went veggie, so I went into it expecting Burger King "grilled" (i.e. slightly burned) flavor, so I loved it. I haven't tried an Impossible burger outside of there, but I definitely will hunt more of them down.
