Here's a "great" dialogue I had with my manager:
Me: So, I had this question about this assignment. The accounts seem to be having some issues with blah blah blah ( I won't bore you with the specifics).
Boss: Oh well yeah. That's why we had you come on board.
Me: I appreciate that, but I'm still trying to figure things out here.
Boss: Well how about this? I know you're busy Monday through Friday. How about you come in on Saturday to do some catch up work? I'm sure with you coming in on Saturdays, you'll be up on in no time.
Yeah. THE MAN SAID TO COME IN ON SATURDAYS!!!!!
I swear I think I've hit Dante's Inferno and this is just the tip of the iceberg...
