I'm taking a quick time-out from writing about yoga for one blog that has nothing to do with yoga.
This was my conversation in a meeting today. No lie.
Douchebag: "Um, Laura. I didn't ask what you can't do. I asked what you can do. For two years you've been telling me what you can't do."
Me: "No, I've been telling you what I am technologically capable of."
Douchebag: "Aren't you a designer. Why can't you just design it."
Me: "I can. However, I'm not a web designer so I don't know how to do that part."
Douchebag: "Who can?"
Me: "Well I'm the only one in my department with no support so I'm not sure."
Douchebag: "Well I have some money in my budget to get a web developer."
Me: "Oh really, you have thousands of dollars? That's what it will cost."
Douchebag: "No, it won't cause you will do most of it."
Me: "Why don't you take some money from your budget and put me in a class so I can actually learn how to do it."
Douchebag: "No, we aren't going to do that."
Ahhh, I love a company that believes in personal and career development. Don't you.
