    3. If brains were taxed, he'd get a rebate.

    5. I am convinced that there are millions of brilliant people in this world...and none of them work for us.

    6. If he were any more stupid, he'd have to be watered twice a week.

    7. I don't think she's plugged in.

    PICNIC: Problem in Chair, Not In Computer

    10. He came in late, but he'll make it up by leaving early.

    11. At one workplace, they call the person who is exempt from the rules and who is not expected to do any work, the boss's "Prize Pig."

    Thanks Jaltair for the laugh! I love the plays on words!

    Recently someone sent me a list of things employers could say about former employers that were ambiguous so that they could say they told the truth... or not! LOL I'll have to find it, they were clever.

    all the best,
