Both I and my boss have interest in a woman. I guess I am in trouble. What should I do ?

I'd ask a bunch of programmers I've never met for advice, expecially in matters of employer relations and romance.

Casually mention she asked you out, then say you might back off for a raise. Money and possessions are far more important than relationships.

If you fear for your job because of a personal relation outside the workplace I'd change jobs...

Is she a co-worker? If she is, find her a better job. If not, tell your boss that she said he has a small one. Even managers can't stand that sort of abuse!

I would just approach my boss and lay it all out on the table. I personally prefer to be direct. You can be polite and still be direct. It doesn't always work out to your benefit, but it is still the best approach most of the time. At least in my experience.

Love/interest is nothing but wasting time together. The more time you waste time, more you will be intrested in other....

PS: Only problem is that other should be ready to waste time too

OK, let me re-phrase it, is the woman willing to waste time with either?

I would lure the boss for a threesome, and ejaculate all over him if he talked about business during the time of pleasure.

For Christ's sake don't get into a competition with him over her.
She has a mind of her own and she should make her own choices.

What is she wants them to fight to the death to aid her in the selection process?

time honoured means of selecting a mate. In most species it is now possible to concede the fight and withdraw into a life of sollitude outside the herd (and maybe find a new herd) but the principle remains.

May be Rick should invite his manager for a Code War? For example, who ever writes and compiles efficient solution to find all prime number of all 100 digit numbers, and downloads more mp3s, avis and manga at the same time?

Good Luck!




I literaly got motion sick from those questions.
Why can't I see same pattern again and again without getting sick?
I would never be able to answer those questions, unless I cover all but one.
