    The W would violate ADA - also is there a woman in high heels on the other side of it?

    I just was reminded of the time a very grouchy coworker of mine gave me a giant lecture about defrauding the company.
    We were floating in a lazy river with drinks at a team outing and company travel expenses came up somehow. My boss was like ‘it would be nice if the company would just let us spend the per diem however we want over the week as long as it’s under the grand total. I’m not spending $60 on dinner without booze, but lunch is always more than $10.’ blah blah. I said something to the affect of have your server ring in appetizers or extra sides in place of the booze for an extra tip. They know the game.
    This old lady coworker just had a giant melty right there on the spot. Apparently her drink was pure company koolaid.

    Worked with a chick who we nicknamed dog the bounty hunter because she looked like a miniature version of him. Her whole thing was lobbying for the company to have access and obtain all frequent flier miles for any business travel.

    Somewhat tangential, my old company brought in beer one Friday for a happy hour. This older woman starts freaking out asking if HR should be notified. Ma’am, they’re the ones who brought it

    One of my squadrons did "beers and cheers" about once a quarter where we'd stay 30 minutes after work and the officers would buy everyone beer. One time the highway leaving base shut down so since we were stuck we just drank outside the squadron building for like 90 minutes and a lot of spouses had to come drive people home

    I try to eat for free or just don’t eat since I can use my per diem however I want. There’s this store where I usually travel that was basically made for guys like me. They have these t shirts with these really complicated designs that are just my style. It can get a little pricey though because the more complicated the design, the more the shirt costs.

    I don’t think your company can take the airline and hotel miles. Unfortunately I have to book on a corporate CC so don’t get those points

    If it's on a corporate CC you can still sign up for hotel brand rewards and probably airline brand awards.
    But CC rewards you won't get. That's the bonus of just expensing everything.

    And in my opinion the rewards are mine for giving the company an interest free loan in the form of expenses

    Right I meant the credit card points I don’t get. I would gladly expense things and get reimbursed but not allowed.

    My entire point was if your ass is in the seat and your head is on the pillow you get those reward points but I obviously wasn’t clear

    I’m switching customers at work and got added on LinkedIn by this coworker that’s pretty sexy. I looked at her profile and she is basically lying/greatly exaggerating her role

    It’s honestly a big enough of a lie/exaggeration that I’m a little turned off by it. Not that I had a chance anyways

    I mean I get exaggerating a tad on a resume that’s on a private document being sent to an outside company, but for it to just be listed on her page for all to see seems like she lacks self awareness

    To add some perspective here, my company is a project based firm. She is claiming to basically be doing the job of our VP. She doesn’t even directly manage a single project, she just got promoted from being support staff to a backup project manager

    That’s a great question. I honestly don’t know. I’d say there’s a 15% chance

    I have never met her irl, just been on a random Teams meeting with her and she did some paperwork for me a year or so back

    I don’t know if her friend knows my last name. They seem to post a decent amount of pics together

    I’m just…shocked? Idk the right word. Details:
    My company has been in salesforce for a long time. Every year we process client renewals and make system updates via salesforce workflows. 5-6 departments touch each thing, make an update on their section of the proprietary system (this is a problem itself) and document, pass along in Salesforce. Anyway… someone decided that THEY DONT LIKE IT so we’re abandoning it for anything but new sales opportunities. That means we’re going back to something like 2010 and processing everything for 800-1000 clients on a single shared spreadsheet. It’s some old, poorly functioning, UI nightmare, browser based thing.

    Yes, folks.
