#961Dealing with the problem of pure staff accumulation,
all our researches ... point to an average increase of 5.75% per year.
-- C.N. Parkinson
#962Dear Lord:
I just want *___one* one-armed manager so I never have to hear "On
the other hand", again.
#963Dear Mister Language Person: What is the purpose of the apostrophe?

Answer: The apostrophe is used mainly in hand-lettered small business signs
to alert the reader than an "S" is coming up at the end of a word, as in:
WE DO NOT EXCEPT PERSONAL CHECK'S, or: NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY ITEM'S.
Another important grammar concept to bear in mind when creating hand- lettered
small-business signs is that you should put quotation marks around random
words for decoration, as in "TRY" OUR HOT DOG'S, or even TRY "OUR" HOT DOG'S.
-- Dave Barry, "Tips for Writer's"
#964Despite all appearances, your boss is a thinking, feeling, human being.
#965 "Do you think what we're doing is wrong?"
"Of course it's wrong! It's illegal!"
"I've never done anything illegal before."
"I thought you said you were an accountant!"
#966Don't be irreplaceable, if you can't be replaced, you can't be promoted.
#967Don't steal; thou'lt never thus compete successfully in business. Cheat.
-- Ambrose Bierce
#968Don't tell me how hard you work. Tell me how much you get done.
-- James J. Ling
#969"Don't tell me I'm burning the candle at both ends -- tell me where to
get more wax!!"
#970Dreams are free, but you get soaked on the connect time.
