OK, I'm gonna say something everyone knows, but may take a grain of salt approach to.

The ethics thugs at Raytheon were interested in me cause I have a side job. You know, they always get worried you might be working on something for the other guy when you are clocked in at the plant.
They checked out my PC while I had my back turned a month ago to see if they could see some conflicto-dilecto if you know what I mean. I could have told them there wasn't any such shenanigans, but they wouldn't even take the word of their own dear mothers.
I came out smelling like Motul E100 oil, and as you know, that smells pretty good. HOWEVER, and this is huge-o-riffic. They did find
the folder "DAVES STUFF" which if you monkeys know anything about me you'd know that spells TROUBLE with a red hot dagger in my ass.
That, is just about what I got. HR coterized my asss shut with one week suspension, starting this morning at 10:25 pending the results of their finger sniffing investigation! Story is pretty good, isn't it!
For a guy who's got 26 1/2 years in the company, you know, I just don't feel too bad. I mean, some of you have seen my rants about this place. It sucks, management sucks, upper management sucks, benefits keep getting nuetered, C.H.U.D.S (Canabalistic Humanoid Underground Dwellers) keep showing up to assimilate our technology to take it down to Los Angeles, more and more ACE Engineers are putting their resignations in. So what. I'm a little bit nervous, because these puds have a kinda zero tollerance approach to tittys and I had some shots I pulled from MotoRush and from Emails I recieved at work.
I have one little itty bitty thing going in my favor, however. You see, since the "DEATH SCAN" was done on my computer, I independantly rid my system of any images that might offend some cockbagging asshole-charmer that might be looking over my shoulder. No one told me to do it. I just did. So Ethic(rabs on the crotch) can re-scan my system and perhaps think that "Wow, this guy got rid of the files. I wonder if he's learned his lesson. Hmmmmmm, I wonder if he can make available to us those nice titty shots we are porking him for?
I may be going 100% independant in short order. I sure as shiiiit know I've got the skills, but I could stand some street beating to drum up customers. I really have wished lately, that I could run my buisness from mi casa (which es su casa if anyone ever comes to town). All my life I've needed a shove before I started anything.
I told HR that "If they want a resignation, they can have it" But you know damn well some fist target is gonna get a big kick out of axing me and telling his boss what a good job he is doing.

Don't shed a tear for me. But if the chance comes up, have a cold one or two.:clap:

Man I wish you the absolute best of luck. It's probably prettymuch spelled out in the HR Policy guide as to what they'll do, might just depend on how bad the pics were.

I had to fire an engineer last year. After many years of seeking he had finally located a 1800's wild west revolver and was so overjoyed about it that he brought it to work and invited an employee out to his Jeep to have a gander. It was a hot sunny day and the canvas top was off the Jeep so he thought it best to not leave the pistola in the car. He picked up a plain brown bag, wrapped everything up tight and brought it into the office and placed it in his drawer.

A few minutes later the other employee came over to his desk with yet a third employee who wanted to see the shooter. He looked around, took it out, removed the paper bag and was spotted by 2 women employees who immediately called HR and me (who was away at lunch).

I told them to quietly clear the building and called the police (because I was at lunch I had to go by the book) then I jumped in the truck and raced back to the office where I confronted him. The gun was unloaded, no shells in his posession, and it looked inoperable due to age and condition. But it was too late, he'd brought a gun into the workplace and my hands were tied. I sent him home for the day and released him the next morning. HR hailed me as a hero who saved lives by confronting the gun weilding maniac, when all that really happened was a dude who was happy to share his enthusiasm for his new toy was let go.

I felt like crappola about it, he was no danger but you just can't be too safe. Anyway, that doesn't really apply to your sitch other than to say that rules are rules and sometimes there's no grey area even when there might be room for it.

Hope it works out for you.

It's so simple, the folder is called DAVES STUFF. Just tell them that your name is bigdaa, they have the wrong guy.

EDIT: To go along with both your stories, bigdaa probably has the equivilant of an arms dealer in his desk.

Damn Dave that truly is bogus.....The political correctness in this country has become out of hand in the last decade or so, you can't even look at someone and smile w/o taking a chance on it being construed in the wrong manner. As far as some "suspect" pictures being on your pc that really have not ruined or endangered anyones life should be a slap on the wrist and not a frigging job termination! My heart goes out to you man and I hope and pray everything works out!

bigdaa, is there any way for you to retort (sp?) and ask whoever is looking at your PC if you can see theirs? I'm betting they have a few of your pics on their PC as well... those we good pics weren't they! :oops: :D

BTW, being on your own is scarry as hell at the beginning and whenever shiot happens as you don't depend on a steady (sp?) income but there's nothing more rewarding (at least for me) than that. This is my second time at it and last year we had a bad year because of the hurricanes (we're still paying for those) but I wouldn't trade it for the same job at a large Corp even if they offer me a bit more pay. I go to work everyday and put the same amount of time or more than before but you know that you can go to the doctor, play hookie or have your weekends off, ya know, things you may not have working for someone else.

Good Luck!

Dave, what a bunch of BS. You bust your butt for a company 26 1/2 years and this is the thanks you get? WTF
Please keep us informed, I wish you all the best.

And yes, I'm going to toast you with a couple corona's with lime and a good cuban "stogie".

Hey if thats the rules... f*ck em... let them fire you though do not resign! Especially if you are going to go frelancing from there. Getting canned never looks good, but if your next boss is you... then who cares. Soak them for a nice fat severance package... even suggest it be HUGE or else your lawyer thinks you should seek "damages"... oh they will hate to hear that. 26yrs and a little bare titties get you fired? PLEASE... Just remind them of the time "(your bosses name here) was banging that intern after hours on everybody's desk!" Or when "(insert biggest ass in the Co. here) was hitting the bottle all day long when his wife was divorcing him"... You can go on and on and on...

If your leaving, may as well plant some ideas and doubt on your way out!

Going solo is a gut wrenching choice... but if you have the skills and can sell them... I wouldnt worry about getting shown the door... walk out head high thowing grenades behind you!

I got canned once... My boss and CFO had me in for a meeting just after lunch when the Pres. and owner were out of town... The pr!ck was shocked when I took it so well... I just figured it was for the best and knew with me gone... he was screwed. I wished him luck... told him he would need it and out I went. Didnt close out jobs... nothing... let them do it... next day GONE. I had work to do at home on their dime!

Dave, if it happens it happens.. dont sweat it.








More importantly you said YOU ERASED DAVE'S FOLDER?! Are you NUTS?

Tell me you transferred the files to your home PC!

Wish I had advice dude but to me corporate policies are like Chinese. And office politics ain't my forte either.

Just wanted you to know that if they dispose of you, I'll help you mow those $#@%suckers down.....if you have a spare firearm, that is.:tongue_smilie:

Thanks for the offer, but I wouldn't waste one precious round on those pious pricks.
I was thinking the guy who headed this investigation has an ax to grind because during the conflict of interest meeting, i was asked questions by this guy. I gave him answers and he came back with conclusions just the exact opposite of what I had expalined to mim. Soooooooooooooooooooooooooo
I looked at him and repeated exactly verbatim what I told him and asked him point blank "Are you hearing the same words I am speaking or what!"
He would dredge up his same bullshiiit response, I'd tell him a third time what I'd said, then I told the assssbite that "I hope the hell you get this stuff straight. Your note taking is making me worry"

Corporate Ethics......It's like saying "Jumbo Shrimp"

You fukers ought to be examining PC's for kiddy porn.

I decided to recind any offer to resign. I'm gonna take it to the man.

New week is starting. One week off is turning into 40 hours work as a contractor, so at least I'll have the bills covered.
I am going to give a blow by blow description of the action. Hopefully I'll keep a diplomatic yet direct line of communication with the corporate machine. As with all important subjects these days, communication will be by email (partial credit to email technology for the decline in interpersonal relations) so posting here will be as easy as control c, control v.

Bigdaa, the corporate crap is getting out of control. I can understand where you are coming from. F'em! Trust me, stick it out and make certain to keep records, times, dates, all conversations, meetings, etc. Include individuals involved, content, any witnesses, etc. Remember CYA!!! The threat or idea of a lawsuit from a 26yr+ employee can be very scarey to a company. Especially to a company like Raytheon. CA is most definitely the most employee friendly state. Assuming you have had satsifactory or better reviews in the past (make certain you have all copies of past reviews), you can be holding the cards and calling the "shots" with this situation.

If you need any insist, contact me off-line.
