Man, oh man! I just saw some backpedaling so hard, they could have done the Tour de France backwards! [View all]

The "You're not working hard enough" types who recently pissed in my corn flakes just did a "Gracious! Did WE do that?!?"

No doubt after getting a monumental WTF??? from the rest of the float pool, they have amended their 'do another provider's work for him' fiddlyfuck to "We're sorry! We're sorry! We meant 'only if that provider requests help first'!"

So, with any luck, that is sorted out. I'll ask for an apology for their abusive language some other time. Right now, I'm just going to savor the fact that their explanatory e-mail reeks of apologia. Someone higher up than they must have asked them "Is this really how you want to treat trained, seasoned, experienced, and dedicated professionals?"

I can't thank you all enough for your supportive messages. My dear, darling Loungers are the best. I love you all.
