Apartments are neither apart nor mints.

super = over
visor = seer

If I start a company, I think the position should be called overseer and not supervisor.

They actually were called overseers back in the old days.

It has a less ominous tone to it I think.

I find I react to the word "supervisor" like it means power.

I like overseer because it feels more like a orchestra conductor because in that case everyone has their part, can do their part, and one person kind of helps the group stay in tune.

Although, if for the past so many years we have used "overseer" instead of supervisor, my feelings may be reversed because my experiences would be reversed.

Make sense? Probably not. It's the starbucks talking. I think they spike this stuff to make ppl feel higher than just coffee, speak wilder than just being buzzed, and they make ppl come back for more and more.

No no, it makes absolute sense and I agree wholeheartedly. It matches my situation alot.

And as for Starbucks, well, it's a schedule III narcotic. I swear.

Personally, I would rather see titles become more imposing. How about "overlord" instead? Or perhaps something German, like "Genaediger Herr" (Gracious Lord).

Well, I've thought "massah" has a nice ring to it, but I don't think slavery is far enough in the history for some people for that to be taken as a good joke.

you know...we have a supervisor by us...he dont really over see operations...but he certianly "over looks" alot of stuff.

Its reveiw time, and not one of us in our department has one good thing to ay about him. We actually didnt see him for about 4 days...he was clocked in...but you'd think SOMEONE in a 12 hour shift coulda tracked him down.

"Power" as it would is too dangerous a thing for the normal human mind to hold responsibly. And it shows.

*nod*... I battle with myself... I don't think I'm willing to become one of them in order to replace them in order to fix the things I don't like.
