President Obama

Barack is in the House!
The election to the presidency of Barack Obama, born in 1961, focused more attention on Generation Jones. Many influential journalists, publications, and experts pointed out that Obama is a member of Generation Jones, including David Brooks (The New York Times), Karen Tumulty (Time Magazine) and Nancy Snow (Huffington Post). Generation Jones was the heretofore lost generation between the Boomers and GenXers, which has emerged now as a bona fide distinct generation.

Potty Police

Dear Doctor,

My employer, Convergys requires another new note from you, my doctor. It is to explain the reason and need I have to take breaks during the day. My employer has taken disciplinary action against me for taking these unauthorized breaks. Convergys does not want to pay me for this time. During these breaks I urinate in, and occasionally perform a bowel movement in a toilet. I need this relief to perform my job. If I would to urinate at my desk, it would be a violation of protocol, and create an unhealthy physical work environment.

As you previously explained in you last note for my employer, you have prescribed that a take a medication that is a diuretic. This causes me to urinate. I take other medication that gives me a dry mouth. Consequently I consume water to remedy this situation. This therefore induces further urinary urges. My job requires me to talk all day. I must lubricate my mouth and throat with water throughout the day to maintain this talking ability. As a consequence, this water contributes to my need to evacuate it.
