I didn't realize it at first, but halfway through the drive back
home i realized that i was actually f**king elated.

At one point at that job, i was receiving training in the
shipping dept (computer issues in that area.)  I was standing
there listening to the guy who was familiarizing me with their IT
procedures and so forth, when in walks the company president. 
The guy training me quickly tells me to stand off behind several
large filing cabinets and to try and not be seen by the

Later i was told that the president/owner didn't like to see
people in the shipping dept (supposedly a high security dept)
that he was not familiar with.... WTF????

I was also told to try and minimize my interaction with the CIO
and VP and not to "engage" them unless they asked me a question.

This was a large calling card company in the MIA area.  With all
of that silliness i was more than happy to leave them to rot in
their Win32/FoxPro hell.
