    Thank you for taking the time to write your review. You obviously have a sense of humor which is a fantastic attribute! It's possible that your ideas were heard although not acknowledged. Try presenting ideas in different ways, either in writing or verbally, and keep track of your ideas. Learning your managers' styles and how to approach them will also help you to communicate your ideas. Keep the humor going.
