    Basically it’s just when a person denies or presents an alternative (false) false narrative to your experience, or perhaps telling you that a problem you’re experiencing isn’t a big deal or doesn’t exist. Anything that causes you to doubt yourself and your reality.

    Just got to witness a “reply all” debacle. Someone replied all to an email sent out for a training video about the video not working. He was quickly joined by several others replying to everyone that they can’t get it to work either. Some guy named Kevin asked them to “stop reply all pls”, but nope, they said fuck u Kev and keep right on chiming in.

    The Kevins are the worst in these. It’s 2021. Mostly everybody knows to not reply all to a huge email chain, and the one’s that don’t are well past the point of no return. Stop trying to be a tech wiz hero, Kevin.

    Haha yes, love this. Had it happen a couple years ago.

    Ethics training email goes out from HR to the entire company of ~400 people. Link was broken (incorrect spacing that a normal internet user could've figured out). Then we get the following Reply All emails:

    Employee 1: I can't get the link to work. Please help.
    Employee 2: Please remove me from email. Not my department.
    Employee 3: Me too
    Employee 4: It looks like a misspelling in the link. Try this (fixed link)
    Employee 5: Please remove me too
    Employee 5 again: Oh that worked! Thanks E4.
    Employee 6: Thanks E4!

    Those people should've been immediately placed in some type of office internet etiquette training.

    It's so stupid. Do they think there's some moderator actively viewing the email chain and removing people upon request or do they think people sift through the 5,000 names on an ALL USERS email to remove them?

    My office at home is in the basement and my A/C blower kicks on and off through the day. It’s loud, so I have to adjust the TV volume by 10 when it comes on, then back down when it shuts off or it’s way too loud. Especially when I watch Criminal Minds as I work, which has lots of screaming and stuff. Firstest world problem.

    I think my wife is about to lose it at her job and I honestly can’t blame her. From what I can see her boss is a lazy empty suit who won’t provide too cover for his people, his boss is a sociopath who delights in stirring things up and making last minute changes, and above him are the owners of the company who apparently have no long term strategy. It’s tough watching her get more and more stressed out; she started teleworking about 6 months before COVID but now she’s back in the office once a week and so is back on the bullshit radar. She’s finally looking at other jobs at least.

    My wife is in the same boat. Her CEO is a moron and she is the HR department. She's been interviewing for about a month looking for a new gig. Tell her to start looking. Plenty of opportunities out there.

    The DP and cream soda zero is the GOAT soda. Only problem is it is damn near impossible to find.

    I also dig the Sunkist zero.

    Yep those all stay in limited supply, so I whenever they have been on sale and in stock I buy. I’ve found that anything that has an extra flavor makes for a good zero sugar soda.

    If you text someone who is on vacation to ask just a quick thing and you’re really sorry to bother them, you better stay by your damn phone to finish the conversation right then and not make the person on vacation play phone or text tag all morning.

    vacation culture is bad in my office. Folks that take time off feel obligated to check their phones constantly and be available if anyone needs them for anything. One guy I always back up calls me every morning when he's on vacation to go over every email.

    Whenever I take off I shut off all my email notifications and make an effort to leave my phone inside whenever i'm out doing anything. we sell steel. there is nobody dying on the operating table. When i am off I am off. And it's fucked up that management doesn't encourage that.

    Fuck man same for me. In any services-related industry, you're just expected to be on call regardless. It's B/S. My boss has mentioned several times, "well you're never really on vacation ... you realize that, right? Always gotta be available at the drop of a hat." He was in the Bora Bora with his family earlier this year and sent 20-25 emails/day, was just taking in new cases, reviewing work ... while on vacation with only his wife and son. Fuck all that.

    But I routinely have clients and adjusters with out-of-office messages, "do not call me, I am not even checking emails," and have gotten bitched out for sending an email while the adjuster is out.
