If they gave you more time you'd write a fucking thesis, and you know it. They're trying to make people write a quick and to the point summary and get to hell back to work.

Maybe you can work it into your self-evaluation that you've demonstrated heroic levels of self restraint by not insulting your cow-orkers thus maximizing retention of human resources.

There are different kinds of heroes.

That isn't why. The idea is that you should be collating stuff (examples) through the year and working on your document along the way. What generally happens is people end up with a mad rush, because there just isn't time to do it through the year without using up your lunch hours. There isn't enough time to do what we need to do for our job, without adding this bullshit.

I write way less than most people - maybe about 500 words. I had a 30 minute write up session and then worked through half my lunch hour.

Definitely wouldn't write a thesis.

Falling is easy. It's all in how you land. Landing can be hard. Didja land hard?

It was a proper hard landing.

Right on the the side of my hip.

Still feeling it, but no biggie. No bruise to brag about show for it.

It went for something and nothing as well. I had a sneezing fit - that's it. Just a fucking sneezing fit.


Ah well, it could be worse - I could be working this weekend - and I daresay the gigantic joint I just rolled will make me feel better :P
