I got in trouble for this sentence

The following is an excerpt from an e-mail I sent at work this morning to a project manager, "If anyone whines remind them that this is a pilot and we need to ensure the data we collect is controlled and consistent."

Apparently "whine" was too sarcastic. Someone whined about it.

Yeah. I love my job.

Where is everybody's sense of humor?
People just aren't people anymore. I bet that guy who got all pissy, chuckled to himself first. But then again, my roommate had put a note to his dayshift staff on a dry-erase board, titled: "Puny day-shift beings..." And got friggin fired after being there 6 years... This was Earthlink though, if you know anything about the Mindspring merger, I guess they were lookin for anything.

Re: Where is everybody's sense of humor?
This is a definite case of self-importance. The person in question (who is a she, BTW) is the liason between between the eastern support staff and the people involved in the pilot project, who are brokers. Have you seen "American Psycho"? That's what the people I "accused" of whining do. Apparently brokers that have half million dollar plus incomes don't whine. I guess it doesn't matter that what they do is evil and that the ideal psychological profile for that job is, in fact, the textbook definition of a psychopath (delusions of grandeur, amoral, lack of remorse being key traits).

Ah....scary....I say you kill them. This is the reason I decided not to be a lawyer. Sounds similar, also sounds like my baby brother(You would hate him). I didn't see "American Psycho", should I? No one has told me if it was any good...
