The thin layer of potential for career advancement, increase in pay and future opportunities that an employer paints on your job to convince you that the future holds something more than you are currently experiencing.
I had my first year appraisal at the McDonalds today. They painted a bit of a career veneer over the last year.
A hassle so complete in its totality or so total in its completeness that it is likely hard to equal. For example: The gates of Hell have been reopened or you have run out of milk on a Sunday evening.
Dr. Rick Dagless: I re-closed the gates of Hell as soon as I could, but Darkplace has never been the same since. And with Larry back, it feels like the gates could reopen any second, and that's the last thing I need.
Dr Lucien Sanchez: You're overworked as it is.
Dr. Rick Dagless: Tell me about it. It'll be a total hassle.
