Warning. Loss of Gender Ambiguousity is imminent.

Statements consistent with this and other recent comments are degrading your effort to maintain a neutral sexual identity.

Ambiguosity? I'm going to use that in my next meeting with the C-levelers.

I hope you have better luck than I did with "Administrative Masturbation" in an IBM corporate meeting in Armonk. Apparently that phrase, which is all mine, makes some people very nervous in boardrooms. It did, however make my point very succinctly, with NO questions.

I guess times changed

My father worked for IBM from 1934-1971.

It was called "I've Been Moved" - so many relocations.

No longer I've Been Moved. Now everyone is remote so you can't build relationships or even manager bonding. Makes moving your job to India or China so much easier.

Wifie has been with Blue for 24 years. Her dad was there for 30 [before being part of the sell to Lexmark]. I only worked for them for 10 years [more when you count contracting which still goes on some].

When I look out the window of my office I can see three retired IBM'ers houses and the house we are buying belonged to the original Lab Director at IBM Lexington. It's like a really bad cold, can't seem to shake it.

Where were you mainly located? 34-71 sounds like Endicott or Kingston.

Speaking of which, I spoke with Elix's AA today. I am trying to track Doug down to chat for a couple minutes. Apparently the Financial Sector meltdown has everyone's panties in a honkin' wad as contracts are being scaled down or canceled. She told me it was good I was not playing at Armonk right now.

She will email me when there is time and I will forward that to you.
