The “Early Bird” Special

Posted by and1grad on February 24, 2010

Getting to work early is a scam. Thats right. I said it. Total flimflam. Why? Because no one does any REAL work until something like 9am anyway. This means you can come in early and literally fritter the time away until around 9am, when people start expecting things to at least be started. This is reason alone to get in early. You might ask why I say 9am. Well let me answer you thusly. Normally, staff and management shuffle in somewhere between 8 and 8:30am. I think we all know that if you’re not getting to work until 9am, you’re UNIVERSALLY late for a morning shift…even if you work in the mall.

You’re probably asking yourself, dont you get tired sooner if you get to work early? The answer, not really. Even if you get in at 9am, arent you kinda ready to bounce by 3pm? Same as if you got in at 7am or 8am. Except you only have an hour left before you actually CAN leave. HELLO!! Leaving at 4pm is so foreign to me that I almost feel like I’m cheating. Like I’m getting away with something but at a minimal capacity. You know, like the cashier giving you an extra dollar back on accident. Or beating that certain light that ALWAYS seems to catch you on that one street. You know what street I’m talking about. We ALL have that one MUTHAEFFIN light…look…it aint much but hey…*kanyeshrug* 

Anyways, another reason I recommend you get to work early, is that the bosses notice that FAR more than they notice you staying late. How late do they know that you’ve stayed when they’ve left before you? But if you get in before them and leave after them, you’re making an impression. This is good for when you’re somewhat new on the job and looking to make your presence known. I did this somewhat often when I was “new booty” WAY back when. Might as well do it then bc when you become tenured and/or lead staff, or even management, its expected that you stay late sometimes. Get the credit while you can.

“The early bird gets the worm,” kids. Might as well be you.

Posted by and1grad on February 10, 2010

Its rare that I do this many ART Club posts in the span of a week but when I was CONFRONTED with this pic, I was unable to function for a minute and had Al Green’s “Lets Get Married” playing in my head for a cool minute. THIS was who Reggie Bush was messing with when he wasnt messing with Kim Kardashian. That boy done lived a charmed life.

*Bernie Mac voice* “The Lord is my shepherd, He KNOW what I want.”

Super Bowl XLIV: World Champion New Orleans Saints

Posted by and1grad on February 8, 2010

The Saints are World Champions. No, no, no. Let me..restart. *cracks neck*


What you wanna say? WHAT. DO. YOU. WANT. TO SAY!?!? Obviously, no one is gonna be able to tell me nothing all summer. I dont wanna hear it. EVERYBODY who wasnt already a Saints fan thought the Colts would win. Even today if you type Super Bowl 44 into google, you’ll see more Colts stuff than you will Saints stuff. You’ll hear more people talk about how this affects Peyton, than how it affects Payton. But guess what, World Champions. New Orleans. Who Dat. Oh, and lest I forget…

Drew Brees!! Super Bowl MVP!!

Remember THIS guy? The guy that all the “experts” CONSISTENTLY leave OUT of the talk of best QB in the league. Yeah. What you wanna say now? Look at his numbers since he became a Saint. There isnt a more important player to a team AND TO A CITY than Drew Brees. PERIOD!!

I’m just gonna start rambling soon so I’m gonna stop here before I start saying really bad things about other “experts” and/or Tony Dungy.

CONGRATULATIONS to the New Orleans Saints!
CONGRATULATIONS to the city of New Orleans!
