Brains, Head, and Life: Have you ever had a job where you did nothing for years and nobody found out? Shayne Wyatt Answered Sep 22 Once worked at a steel company and there used to be this guy with a clipboard and pen who would continually be in the stock area checking labels, boxes, pallets, shipping packages. His name was Bob and everyone liked him, he was personable, was into sports, just an all round nice guy who got along with everyone staff, managers, bosses, everyone. Bob had been with the company all of 15 years by then, and you have to understand, this was a large steel mill with a couple thousand people working throughout the three mills on the same property. Anyway, at a managers meeting a decision was made to have an employee look after a certain area of finished nails, screws, nuts and bolts. They were scratching their head about who had the brains to handle it. One of the managers said, "Why not Bob?" Everyone knew right away who he was referring to and they all agreed he would probably be the best man for the job. The next question out of the manager's mouth was "Okay, which one of you guys does he work for?" And no one said a word, but looked around the table at the other managers. "C'mon, he's gotta work for someone here." The manager said, and still there was no answer. Someone piped up, "Maybe he works for one of the office managers." Long story short Bob worked at the plant for over 15 years, collecting a paycheck each and every week. For the first five years he worked in a department that became obsolete and so people were moved around to other areas of the mill, except for Bob. He got lost in the shuffle and found himself floating here and there without supervision or anyone ever paying attention to him. He waited to see if he would still get a paycheck and when that happened he thought at the time, "Well, I wonder how long I can get away with this before someone notices?" How about 10 years folks of weekly paychecks coming in without ever having had to work a day in his life. When this came out it was the talk of the whole operations and even reached the president of the company who could only laugh at the whole situation. Nonetheless Bob was let go, but HR told them they had to offer him a good severance package because he was an employee after all for the full 15 years he was there, and it was not his fault he had nothing to do. Management should have caught it in the beginning. I'm 75 now and this happened when I was still a young man, and had pretty much forgotten about it all until I read the question and I could not hold back a big silly grin about a wonderfully silly memory of Bob. Thanks for the memory Shayne

Being Alone, Beautiful, and Cute: kimberryberry: kimberryberry: kimberryberry: kimberryberry: I call this magic trick “one hour in the bathroom” After posting this i have been bombarded with some awful anon messages; “do you seriously look like a 60 year old woman”, “you’re really one ugly motherf*cker under all that makeup”, “i know you’re not naturally pretty but stop trying so hard” are some highlights.  Congratulations, you have successfully made the observation I am not as attractive without makeup while pulling an awful face and freshly rolled out of bed. Well done. Gold star for the simple mind who can follow the rules of spot the difference. I guess i need to clarify why i posted this in the first place, because the underlying message wasn’t strong enough for some.  I posted this, so girls especially, can laugh at me. Furthermore a reflection of themselves. Its healthy to laugh at yourself and be modest about your looks. To stop being so hard on yourself and others on purely skin deep observations. Because this is NOT important in life. ‘Natural beauty’ has hardly anything to do with physical features, but more a beautiful soul shining out from within. Being a good friend, family member, lover, worker, a human being.  I’m not naturally stunning by the general publics ridiculous standards but I have learnt not to beat myself up about it because thats not fair on yourself or anyone else. After ten years of being sick I finally realised it got me absolutely no where. Save that energy you would use on self hate for more fulfilling moments like love, honesty, hard work and happiness.  My point being, you’ll never find true happiness through beauty in a physical matter alone. Except those small precious moments where you put on a fresh face of makeup, do your hair, find a cute outfit and catch yourself in the mirror for a second and feel a little better. The ‘I can’t wait to wear my new lipstick/skirt tomorrow’ feeling and so on. Puts a lil skip in your step. We make these transformations for ourselves. Other than that, really, I thought I looked pretty damn funny with my pose and awesome chins but I had to go all deep on you to make you think about the awful things you said to me. Cheers mate Hey its me again, my hands shake as I type this I’m so overwhelmed with whats happened overnight i woke up to 40,000 notes, 500+ positive messages and 4,000+ amazing new followers. I couldn’t be more grateful for the appreciation. I’m so wonderfully happy that what started as a simple post from me as a normal person has helped thousands, whether it be a smile and a scroll or uplifted your day as so many have contacted me to say.  For this I am so thankful   If you want to follow me on ig i’m kimberryberry on there as well :)  I can’t get over how many notes this is getting, all the messages I’m receiving are so amazing I’m so happy I’ve helped so many people see how beautiful they are
