    To my boss, since all my plans to escape from this place have come to nothing, and i may be here for some time yet, i thought i should try to be nicer to my boss'es, trouble is i do not know how, i have got away with some serious remarks in the past, it is not that i am afeared of them any more now than in the past, it is i would like things to go a bit smoother,
    so how can i be nicer to them whithout seeming to be toady.
    I know i will hate myself after a week or two of being Mr nice guy, but i am willing to suffer.

    Happy, smiling employees are like that because they're embezzling something.

    Do what they ask without question or comment. That would probably be a good start.

    Marlow Hood - that was a bad rascal! Didn't he get hanged for overstating profits? In for a penny, in for a pound/
