Today, I called in sick at work because I have the flu. This is my first sick day in the 2 years I've worked there. It's also the day the CEO made a surprise visit. My co-workers all got generous salary increases, and some of them promotions. I'm not included, simply because I wasn't there. FML
rara1989 tells us more :
oh hey, that was my FML. I made an account just so i could say this to you... I wasn't faking being ill to go xmas shopping ta. I got my shopping out the way back in Nov! (no sick day!) I've got the flu bad, worse day to get ill!. I'm going into work tomorrow though despite how horrible I feel so I can speak to my boss about it!. Sucks to be me right now!

I hate when people say this crap, just because there are people that don't have a job doesn't mean that the people working at places shitty places for crap salaries should be celebrating for being there.
And this is not about being ungrateful is about people stopping to think small and start aiming higher cos that type of mentality will get you nowhere

BI actually disagree with you Alan. All he was trying to do was be optimistic and cheer the OP up. No need to be a negative nancy. Stop spreading your misery please.

So, good to know any kind of cheering up is not allowed. How about this. The OP is left alone or has their bad luck spelled out and drug through the mud to make it more painful. You're all also assuming that this is a shitty job. Which we have no indication it is. OP's situation sucks ass, but when there's a 10-11% unemployment rate I think this is a valid brightside to say you have a job.

^ STFU. It's not cheering up, it's just a shitty excuse to talk down to the OP and feel smug about it. That comment was about as useful as the morons who post stupid "that sucks" or shitty situation jokes.

7 - a lot of people can't even pay their bills, having a kitten is better than none. That's the point of that post, thanks for coming out. A lot of people are marmosets but there's no point to that either I guess.

Alan's comment wounded you? Hey, at least you have Internet access in order to read that comment. A lot of people in the world do not, so be grateful and don't complain!

Now I'm scared since 54 hasn't commented again since hs challenged Alan... Wow the FML staff truly is something to fear, I remember the time when I got an email because one of my comments got moderated, it was like watching a SWAT team raid my house

Most companies have a board of directors, or a group of people in charge. They could easily vote him out of the company.
(some restrictions apply)

There's also something called HR.
