A Quote and a Book

So i thought about trying to dig up a happier or friendlier quote but i didn't find one i liked so there!

"It is fit I should commit offense to my inferiors" Cymbeline Act 2 Scene 1

Who doesn't feel superior sometimes? Especially we lucky few in Customer Service. Work has been awful these last few days (hey, i know, lets build call centers in south Texas! what could possibly happen there!) and i'm just not feeling "friendly and helpful" :)

I finished The Book of Vice-Very Naughty Things (and How to Do Them) by Peter Sagal today. He's the host of Wait Wait Don't Tell Me on NPR, a program i fully admit i don't "get". The book was ok, a 4 on my list. I kinda felt like it was a bad draft of something by Mary Roach. It was interesting but i think the publisher should have left of ..and How to Do Them from the title. It would be better served with ..and Why to Do Them, no double entendre intended. It is really about what makes people tick, attracts them to the various vices described, what makes activities a vice anyway. And no, i wasn't looking for a list of websites to visit, just a bit more humor, perhaps a first person account from someone who actually seems to have vices, not be weirdly prim about them. Again, it wasn't a bad book, just not what i was expecting.
