No- I’d imagine it’s the exact opposite.
Coworker booked this room for me on purpose. Outside of Dollywood so who knows what has happened in here
Lots of hot tub incest if I had to venture a guess
I stayed in a room like this at a Hampton Inn in Agoura Hills, CA the night before a very nice hike in the Santa Monica Mountains and then a delightful afternoon with VTA
That was lily-white suburbia and I wanted no part of that thing, I imagine all of the bleach in the world can't clean a petri dish like that in Pigeon Forge
I wanna see the black light picture of that room.
Please do not call me or walk into my office every single time I send a fucking email. It’s ok to respond to the email. That is why I sent it.
While the bleach can kill all of the hard surface stuff, you really want to be careful with those jet tubes. You’ve gotta fill that bitch up with disinfectant and then run it for 10 minutes to just kill those pathogens. Nothings worse than seeing them disinfect a hospital tub like that they do water births in.
perhaps my biggest work pet peeve. if i wanted to talk on the phone, boomer, i would have called you.
I love that move.
He rented one for himself as well
New boss has same name as my wife. Just found out her husband has same name as me. Crazy lol
That’ll make for some interesting swinging.
Company I work for has a profit sharing bonus plan. Company decided to raise the threshold by 33% over last year. Shockingly we didn't increase our profits by a full fucking third this year, so we're not getting a bonus. My project manager had his weekly update call an hour after the email went out and just looked utterly defeated and said "I honestly don't know what to tell you all right now".
In unrelated news I have a job interview tomorrow.
That’s awful man. I’m sorry but good luck on your interview!
We had an English expat running our North America division about 9 years ago. On the fucking Fourth of July he sent out an email announcing about a 25% reduction in force with no more information and that our managers would talk to us all when back from the holiday. Talk about a total dickhead move and I still think he did it because we beat their asses centuries before.
Not to redder sweater the previous post about the pay but it made me think of that time.
I'm kind of conflicted on the interview honestly. I wanted out of the intel community and its associated mental health strain but god the money is tempting. I actually like my job now, it just pays dick.
I hear you. Weighing the strain and toll vs money is always such a huge factor. People say all the time that money doesn’t buy happiness but it’s bullshit. If you can’t do the basic things you require for you and your family you’ll never be happy. At some point though the money levels out on a top end though and happiness can become a factor.
If you’re making $20k a year it’s gonna be hard to be happy no matter what you do because you’ll always be up against it. If you make $300k or $350k the difference seems more negligible and happiness most assuredly comes into play.
The trick is in weighing it out before you make a decision with 25% of the facts.
Good luck! Trust your gut. It’s always seemed to work for me.
It buys a waverunner. Try looking sad on a waverunner
Planner: We will be having a company wide offiste soon! First week of May in Boston.
Me: Hey everyone, I'll be traveling to LV 5/19. Flight, hotel, everything booked. It is not cheap. Just in case our retreat is pushed back like I know it will be.
Planner / boss: No sweat.
Actually, 2nd week of May everyone.
Planner: We have to push the team gathering due to others being unable to make it. How bout the week of 5/16 in Boston?
Me: Can't do 5/19 or 5/20.
Going to vegas 5/19 and that weekend is a bitch to book.
Any other time works though
Planner: Got it.
Planner: After much planning our company offsite will be 5/19 in Boston!!!
Just would like to say the word "vibrant" is officially devoid of meaning
Tell them to record it for you
Yea. If they moved it for others based on unavailability, I’d tell them to kick rocks.
As someone who has switched sectors and now makes less money but experiences way less mental stress. I say take the less metal strain all the way. I also don’t have a wife and kid though so that makes that decision a lot easier.
So my medical practice is so booked up we're having to schedule new patients a month out when they should be getting in within a week. So our medical director gets the bright idea to have a mandatory retreat later this month at his lake house and we'll be shutting down the office for a day.
It’s actually a brilliant idea by the med dir
I disagree. If you're going to shut down the office for a day for some bullshit no one really wants to do, just give us the day off.
The synergy created will increase patient turnovers by 25% daily. You would know that if you had a degree in occupational psychoproductivity and capacity science like myself.
Can confirm, this is pretty great.
Nothing worse than going to my boss's lake house when I would otherwise be working
Didn’t Corky Bucek create a thread for Shawn to post these kinds of things
I forgot about that, but yes I did. Here you go Nandor the Relentless
Not to mention that healthcare is a highly leveraged sector in terms of burnout and the cost to close the office for a day and being people to a tranquil lake house all expenses paid is a brilliant move and far outweighs the cost of people leaving. The patients will always be there and scheduling at 31 days instead of 30 days is inconsequential.
You hit the lottery. Pre-disclosing a conflict which they schedule over anyways. You’re off the hook. Well done.
I would much prefer to have the day off. I don't want to go to this guy's fucking lake house.
You can always quit and go full time in graphic design
My new company has absolutely no respect for meeting times on invitations. Pretty common for meetings to start 5-10 minutes late, calls scheduled for an hour have gone 30-40 minutes late.
Doesn’t bother me that much but it’s a weird adjustment coming from a place where everyone was punctual as shit and if a call couldn’t get wrapped up in the time scheduled they would just schedule more time later.
Yeah my wife is honestly kind of being my sanity check on this as well. She had to deal with my mental health collapsing my last few years in the Air Force (I was sleeping maybe 3 hours most nights, working over nights and weekends, not suicidal but thinking “you know, if I crashed my car on the way to work I’d probably get a few weeks of shift work…”) so she’s making me think long and hard about any offer I get.
As I told a friend of hers a few weeks ago, “they don’t pay that well but I also don’t work that hard”
Just deleted the series of meetings from my calendar called ‘Coffee/Tea/Smoothie Chat’. That title bugged the shit out of me. It was called coffee chat at first and was a 15-30 minute team catch up each week once we went Covid remote. Someone said they usually get tea and another said smoothies so my imbecile of a boss added it to the title because they apparently couldn’t wrap their tiny boomer brain around the concept of the title being a generally accepted reference, rather than a command.
3 days and I’m out this bitch for good
You checked out yet?
Any plans afterwards?
Me and racer gonna galavant across Bolivia in search of loose morals and cocaine
I’ve been about 70% checked out for months. This last week and a half was the start of slow season and I’ve probably worked a solid 4 hours during that period. Got all of Severance and season 3 of Succession watched during work hours.
No jobs lined up. A few interviews at various stages. I’m like 80% on changing industries all together. My tech and data skills are pretty transferable. Insurance fucking sucks.
Probably going to take a little break regardless.
Checking out is one of the best parts of quitting. I didn't do shit for a month outside of the bare minimum (so as to not fuck over the players or coaches) when I quit my college athletics job.
Freaking QA dude has to constantly meet on video to talk about work. It's probably because he can't type as fast and as well since English isn't his first language, but fuck does this get exhausting when it's multiple times many days.
You worked in college athletics?
