So. Let's talk about your performance last year.

Thanks, Gina!

Oh dear. I don't think I'm going to be getting a pay rise this year.

In fact, I'll be lucky to escape this performance review without injury and severe disapproval.

Is Lint a Quebecois rabbit? I notice a distinct dual language box...

I think i am getting demoted! I wonder if bribering works in this situation? I have carrots...

Oh no! The dreaded perfurmance appraisal! You're supposed to take it in stride, see your weaknesses and strengths, but really it's a stressful exercise in office politics. And when it's done by the chief bunappraiser, who cannot be bribed, well, you'll wish you'd resigned like Palin.

Lint looks like a boss I once had who fell asleep in the middle of my performance review! I don't think he was exactly impressed either!

Lint seems to big to put in a pocket, so I guess he isn't pocket lint.

Lint is saving time by conducting our performance review in a box. He can just pack us in this box when we "accept a transfer" to Lint's branch office in the Upper Volta region.

@Dawn: All packaging in Canada must be in English and French, regardless in which province the product is sold.

This is not going to go well....

Dawn, Janet:

Coincidentally, on THIS DAY (July 7th) in 1969 (exactly 40 years ago), a law was passed in Canada saying that French and English had equal status as languages:

Lint thought everybun knew THAT!!!

Ooooh Fleetie, you know more about Canadian history than I do, and I'm Canadian!! *blush with embarrassment*. It's interesting though, although Canada is bilingual on a federal level, the only bilingual province is New Brunswick. Quebec is officially unilingual (French) and every other province is officially unilingual (English) Confused yet??

Janet:

HA HA HA! No, no, and thrice, NO!

It's just that I am in the habit of checking out the "on this day" page on Wikipedia nearly every day. I did it this lunchtime, and that particular fact stuck in my memory until this evening, when by extreme coincidence, it became relevant and useful!

I know nothing of geography or history, having dropped both the very moment I could at school!

So, no credit due here, I'm sorry to say!
