    To his credit, after I explained it, he said he thought what everyone else was telling him was fishy and thanked me for setting him straight. He's also like 20 years older than me so I have no idea how he didn't know how it works. It's no wonder people freak out over common sense tax policies.

    Our safety dude spent a good 20 minutes in our plant wide monthly safety meeting on Teams trying to get the audio on a PowerPoint to work. Excruciating.

    My coworkers and I are having to scan in a bunch of stuff into patients' charts from our satellite clinic because the nurse out there is refusing to do charts on the computer like she is supposed to do.

    Instead of using formal paper charts like any sane human being would do if they were doing it by hand, she’s literally using whatever paper is convenient. I just scanned in one chart done on a paper towel. Another one done in a sliver of notebook paper. Another one where she printed out a picture of a chart she did by hand.

    I scanned in another chart for a person with the first name of T, last name of K.

    Scanned in medical records for someone that was printed from the nurses personal Gmail account instead of her work account, so lord knows how many blatant HIPAA violations are going on over there.

    This week's best

    Is anyone else concerned that the nation is looking more like NAZI Germany 1933 with these unconstitutional "Mandates"?

    Since obesity, heart disease, diabetes kill way more people than covid, when is the company mandate against unhealthy eating, smoking, etc... coming?

    will we also have to disclose other personal health conditions from now on? thought that was hipaa protected/private?

    How does the company make a request to OSHA? Would like to request they consider natural immunity as a qualifier. Antibody screening etc.

    My boss is always like let us know if you need help, we have capacity to help get stuff done! I always say no, and catch up if I get behind. She asks agin, repeat. Days off, I usually just catch up when I’m back. Anyway, I finally say ok, can you guys watch stuff while I’m OOO Friday? Sure, we can take care of it. Should be like you weren’t even off.

    What law has congress passed that forces the jab? Since when do we bow the knee to "mandates" ? Is the company prepared to lose people to this Government power grab?

    Are you aware Southwest air has been grounded by pilots who object to unlawful mandatory vaccines? What will happen to the companies trying to force the same?

    Gov. McMaster has not enforced mask requirements in the State of SC! We are in SC, and should abide by SC law.. Its medically proven masks don't work!

    Current research indicates the vaccine only suppresses Covid symptoms, and asymptomatic vaccinated can still* spread the virus. Has the company researched this fact?

    Been w/ the company for 10+ yrs. PLEASE do not MAKE me put something in my body I don't agree with. Shame if all my hard work was for nothing if I don't get shot.

    The mandate from our Government is being embraced by our board of directors because unity is needed/required from all..

    There is no federal vaccine mandate. Biden knows it's illegal. So they make the threat & companies who want the mandate, but not the blowback, gladly comply

    Can the company afford to not support employees who refuse to take an unconstitutional mandate from the president?

    This mandated vaccine issue for the company is a direct limit of our freedom. Is the company prepared for mass exits if they decide to follow the Presidential threat?

    The Governor of South Carolina and Texas have both rejected Joe Biden's request for mandating vaccinations as unconstitutional.

    Lets go Brandon

    Will the company provide the requirement for getting vaccinated if it insists we do so? Currently no EO in federal database directs it unless you are a federal employee.

    salaries: i was making good money until rib eyes went up to 70 dollars a pack. Gas3 dollars per gallon. thanks Joe

    Trump WON, Biden and Covid are scams. The company should refuse the Nazi mandates that are unlawful and unconstitutional.

    Was on a big, corporate conference call this morning. It was boring...and didn't really have much of a point...like most. Anyways, about in the middle of the meeting, somebody accidentally unmuted their mic and said "yeah I'm not getting shit from this, are you?" Presenter quickly says "please mute your mics, please." It was the highlight of the call. :laugh:

    We had a vendor give a presentation a few years ago trying to sell us on a new software. So there were about 7-8 of us in a conference room while he Zoomed in and did a virtual presentation where he was sharing his screen onto our larger projector He's an older dude and the presentation was going well enough, albeit a tad boring when this boomer gets a facebook message pop up from a woman with blonde hair obviously a lot younger than him. All it said was "Sorry Tim, but I'm not looking for a relationship right now."

    He then completely lost his train of thought and started mumbling before he closed the box and then kept on going on like nothing happened. It was amazing. We didn't buy the software.
