What kind of "Silent Protests" do you engage in? This might not be a bad place to share some of the ways we fight back against the man to counter the scare tactics and micro-management we are subjected to. I was threatened with a 'write-up in my file" because I didn't answer my blackberry a half hour before my shift started. My reply, " I couldn't answer 'cause my blackberry doesn't auto turn-on until my shifts starts" and don't expect to get ahold of me at the end of the day cause "that's when it auto turns-off!" As J would say, "Just Flush I.T."
