Osho on People

"No society wants you to become wise: it is against the investment of all societies. If people are wise they cannot be exploited. If they are intelligent they cannot be subjugated, they cannot be forced in a mechanical life, to live like robots. They will assert their individuality. They will have the fragrance of rebellion around them. They will like to live in freedom. Freedom comes with wisdom, intrinsically. They are inseparable, and no society wants people to be free. The communist society, the fascist society, the capitalist society, the Hindu, the Mohammedan, the Christian — no society — would like people to use their own intelligence because the moment they start using their intelligence they become dangerous — dangerous to the establishment, dangerous to the people who are in power, dangerous to the 'haves'; dangerous to all kinds of oppression, exploitation, suppression; dangerous to the churches, dangerous to the states, dangerous to the nations. In fact, a wise man is afire, alive, aflame. But he cannot sell his life, he cannot serve them. He would like rather to die than to be enslaved." ~Osho

Top Ten Excuses

Top Ten Excuses that I hear every month from people who think they are the first person to ever use that excuse.  Could be calling off an assignment, interview, drug test.. anything

1. Family Emergency
2. Baby in the ER
3. Girlfriend in the ER
4. PREGNANT GF in the ER
5. Kid fever
6. Kid flu
7. Forgot I had court
8. Car accident, still in the ER
9. Diarrhea. (thanks for that visual)
10. Half the family throwing up, half the family pregnant. 

My favorite one was Aunt in the ER, on the same day, one year apart, which was also the employees' birthday. 

I am not kidding.  Just tell your employer the truth. We would appreciate it, and need a break from these 10.
