    And their all retired on decent pensions and healthcare.

    If I had been in the Anaheim parks dept along with some friends I would be comfortably retired by now, oh well

    That is a city job, some are as good as state jobs some aren't. My mom actually worked for the city of Anaheim for the planning commission. She never discussed her pay. As for comfortably retired a lot of state employees game the system and get full medical retirements with as little as 10 years service. Caltrans, Highway Patrol, and State Mental Hospital employees have been pulling that crap for decades.

    QT: [All of them bragged about how little work they had to do while complaining about how inept their co workers were.]
    Same with a few guys at the auto shops...Most guys were talented and worked hard..But the few slouches with big mouths gave the the big shops a bad name...

    Some slouches would sit in the s..t house all day..The bosses and those who cared about the shop were glad they did that because on the floor they might break or scrap more that they fixed.

    The job the OP was complaining about sounded like my last one working for the man. I guess I am opposite of him, I always like to stay busy, it made the time go by fast. Some guys work hard trying to avoid work and doing as little as possible, those kind usually don't amount to much.

    A fellow who was a supervisor on the stealth bomber told about a supposed electrical engineer who did nothing at all, just read newspapers all day. The problem was that his time was billable so he couldn't be fired. No wonder the bombers cost so much. The stereotype is New Yorkers always inpatient and in a hurry and Californians laid back, Midwesterners sort of casual. When McDonnell and Douglas merged, Mac workers came back appalled. When the surf was up, they couldn't get anything done. We may not be frantic New Yorkers, but there is a very definite "Get it done" attitude here.

    Nothing like being the owner, breaking your ass to get something out, knowing you are losing $$ because you missed something on the quote.
