Lol, started off morning by boss accusing me of not working a full 5 hours every day. I said no, I don't think that's correct. Showed boss my log of times when I clocked in and out, and he said I had bad luck because the two days he took note were the two days I worked 10 minutes and 15 minutes short. I made up for that on the days prior, not even after, so boss said that was ok if the times I wrote down were accurate. Then he went off on how I responded (to his false accusations of short changing the company) wrong and how I should have not disagreed with him but instead told him to hold on while I hand him a copy of my time log that he never knew about prior.

I would have told you you failed b/c you didn't discuss your time adjustments with me beforehand. If the expectation is you work the full 5 hours *every day*, than you need to discuss with me ahead of time that you need to juggle a bit.

There are a lot of cool features on those cars. For example, even though the Century is a flagship car, they are still offered with cloth seats because cloth is more comfortable than leather. I don't know about the newest models, but at one point, cloth was the only option. Also, tinting windows is not very elegant so the Century comes with window blinds.

lol, I would totally drive (actually, I'd totally be driven) in one of those.
Well, just about the only option you're missing now are the white gloves for your chauffeur and lace doilies.

Actually, I don't know when leather became di rigeur for luxury car interiors. I should read up on that. I believe it was out of nostalgia, since the first cars were completely open and leather is more resilient, back when it looked like they stuck patio furniture onto their cars:



Even back then they thought cloth was more luxurious, so they moved the furniture theme to the living room.

1927 Rolls:



Bugatti's personal car:



Now it's moved into the boudoir.
