kafka at the office

She shouldn't have taken this job which required her to speak Norwegian even though she wasn't remotely fluent. And they probably shouldn't have given her the job either - a company where the only thing that masked the managers' bumbling incompetence was the individual worker's capability of fulfilling their role without help from above.
That was one factor: Working with customers that called her all day, speaking a language that she could hardly understand (these huge feelings of guilt, because she had not yet learnt to detach herself emotionally).

Also the computer screen they had given her was slightly blurred. She didn't notice because she had never had to use one before, and she thought her headaches and the feeling of sickness in her body was just her normal reaction to working with a computer. She went to a doctor, but he just sent her to an optician without even bothering to ask questions. She had to pay for glasses which didn't make anything better. During three weeks, she repeatedly told her supervisor about this. The supervisor, an arrogant girl who was unhappy with her job but stayed on because of the pay, always told her that someone would come to look at it, but it never happened.

The pressures of fulfilling her role in a foreign language together with the daily bodily pain and sickness wore her down. She was weak, but she was also very tough. She kept on, despite breaking down and crying at her desk while her colleagues sat around not knowing what to do. She was always getting pressure from her superiors to do her job more properly, they even recommended antidepressants to her. When she talked to the highest manager in the office, he just said that she should do another job if she couldn't do this one.

She made herself stay and learnt Norwegian really quickly, and one of her colleagues who had health&safety duties came around, noticed something was wrong with the screen, and replaced it. Her problem was gone just like that, from one day to the next, a huge burden disappearing so suddenly that it took her a while to realize. When she did she became very angry. But angry not even so much with the company, but against herself for letting them do that to her. The anger, the pain, the madness, the fear, the tunnel, the eternity, the blemish, the uncertainty, this lingered for a while. That's when she told her story to me and I took the burden.

IFLH announces Senator David Cain has joined its Board of Directors!!

IFLH volume trading is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement. The value of this
stock appears poised for growth! This one should not remain on the ground floor for long.

BREAKING NEWS!!
InterFinancial Holdings, Corp. (OTC Pink Sheets: IFLH - News) announced that they have added
David Cain to their board of directors. David Cain is currently the Chairman of the advisory
board to TTI (Texas Transportation Institute). Senator Cain represented Senate District 2 for
eight years in the Texas Senate and Chaired the Senate State Affairs Subcommittee on
Transportation and served nine terms in the Texas House of Representatives for District 107.

During his twelve years as Chairman of the House Committee on Transportation, Senator Cain�s
efforts on behalf of the people of Texas have been widely recognized. He was named to Texas
Monthly Magazine�s list of Ten Best Legislators, the Dallas Morning News said he was one of
the outstanding legislators of the 73rd session, and the Texas Department of Transportation
awarded him the Russell H. Perry Award in 1995 for his efforts to gain public awareness of
the need for and benefits of transportation facilities in the State of Texas.

Jeffrey C. Bruteyn, Managing Director, stated, We at InterFinancial are proud to have such a
widely recognized Senator join our board and oversee out automotive lending division. His
affiliations and connections to the automotive industry will be invaluable to our company.
Senator Cain will be instrumental in expediting our approval to use a government issued Seller
Finance License.

Seller Finance Licenses are very difficult to obtain and are usually reserved for the Big Boys
with heavy lobbyists. These licenses are highly coveted because it allows the finance company
to collect the entire down payment, instead of paying a portion of it to the taxing authority.
This dramatically helps a finance company�s bottom line if the buyer defaults on the loan.

With the new GPS tracking systems being installed on every car to dramatically improve
repossessions and with Senator Cain on the Board of Directors, InterFinancial Holdings
is ready to take their business to the next level.

Conclusion:

The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little known Companies

Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!
