bad move

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.

Re: My manager caught me looking for other jobs while at work

why in the world would you look for jobs while at work?

"racism is dead, it died when MLK walked on a bridge and freed the slaves. Now we have a socialist Kenyan president who is not an American and if anyone mentions race they are a reverse racist (while racism is dead, reverse racism is alive and well.) #whattheyteachyouatfox"

It was a browser that I had left on the computer from lunch. And he said you still can't do it from work even during lunch.

Re: My manager caught me looking for other jobs while at work

why can't you look at job listings? Just cause you were looking doesn't mean you're going to leave...surely you can't get into trouble for that??

your an adult (i assume) ffs, you can do whatever you want.

Re: My manager caught me looking for other jobs while at work

You're wrong for using the company computer to job search, but I doubt this is a good enough reason to be fired. I mean it's not like you were on a porn site

"I love the game, I love the thrill, I love the "Go Venus`."
"It takes a lot of work to get to this level, so while I can play I'm going to play."
