@tinamarie1974 The game isn’t what different job would you leave for, but given the same job, benefits, conditions, etc, how little would it take for you to fire your boss. It could be to transfer to a different department with better management, for example.
The game is to discuss the value you give up in order to stay there.
@InnocuousFarmer I used to do acronyms for crude phrases. If someone else read my code they didn’t know what it meant (usually), but it always made me smile.
I also used to use obscene phrases for passwords, (really easy to remember) but once a sweet young System Administrator needed my password (early days of Unix) and I was absolutely mortified at having to tell her what it was. That was the end of that practice.
Remind myself I could be at my last dayjob, where I applied people for public benefits. Where I was routinely lambasted for trying to help people where they were, where my managers didn’t care what would help me do the job, and where I was really skilled but depending on who my manager was, I’d get zero credit for it. I’m MUCH happier now, owning my own business and working directly with authors. I get paid to read books and tell people how to make them even more awesome! Kinda ideal, imo.
