I don’t know if I’ve ever stayed awake for 36 straight hours much less 72
I've been in nightlife for 10 years and 36 is probably at the upper limit.
72 is absolutely insane.
I mean unless you're just doing rails during the call or something
Was it like a war of attrition to see who could stay on the longest - or just to prove who could party the hardest
There’s definitely a “Miscellaneous” line on that invoice for uppers.
Idk maybe they saw this tweet
The hourly folks were always like, “I’m available to stay longer if I’m needed.”
Once you get into like 30 hours you get a second wind and you’re just awake. You’re like a zombie but you’re not tired. At about 40 you drop and you’ve got to get an hour or two power nap. That’ll keep you going another ten. After that your body just has no idea what is going on and is in straight survival mode. Just floods you with chemicals.
I had to work 40 hours in 2 days on site because of a hurricane and it sucked, but that’s on another level of awful.
Cackling like an asshole at that Willy wonka tweet while in a drive thru atm
When the company president or any VP’s send out mass emails announcing promotions and new people in leadership roles, it’s followed by endless “reply all” congratulations emails. I have no clue why the email list isn’t protected to prevent reply all’s but it’s always fun getting the one email knowing another 20-30 are about to follow.
If you really care, send the individual a personal congrats.
Congrats on your 1857th like!
We all knew you could do it
I’ve never seen this. Maybe it’s because they did like you said and turned off the reply all’s but I’ve never witnessed this but that is really cringeworthy.
This is the only move.
Does it even really count if everyone can't see you congratulating someone?
We had something similar happen two weeks ago, but one of the nurses helped some woman deliver her baby in a Sheetz parking lot. Probably got like 20 reply all messages with half of them having the lamest jokes about what the baby should be named.
Once again you chime in with a “similar” situation which, in reality, isn’t even the same fucking stadium.
I really hope you have someone at work you can ask before you ever hit send on any communication.
It is in fact a similar reply all situation
This seems an unnecessarily harsh reply. What he posted was at least somewhat relevant.
But that's not the norm
So Nandor the Relentless you taken any fine grandmothers to Perkins for a 3:30 dinner where you made her pay then sealed the deal on her craftmatic?
No and the fuck is Perkins?
it’s like a worse dennys if you can imagine that
Hey now, it’s like an ihop, but for boomers.
You good fam?
Okay but actually I’m literally dying
I am deceased. Literally.
is there anything scarier than going to the bathroom on a conference call? had our team call this afternoon and had some sudden acute stomach pains.
swear i checked whether my mic was muted a dozen times minimum when i switched from my pc to my phone. terrifying.
Yea, lots of things. I took the stance years ago that a conf call would not dictate my bowel movement emergencies or any other emergency. Just simply say, “I have to go”. If you do your job well and produce, your concerns are minimal. Are you in prison or something?
You did it!
I think you should leave
Every time lol
I did 72 in middle school, I played a fuck ton of video games on a 3 day weekend and then passed out on my parents couch
I think he’s worried about the mic being on and everyone hearing him blow ass
yes and Milkman's point is to just leave the call and go take care of your business.
Leave the mic unmuted. They'll never know it's you
Your picture/initial logo lights up and goes to the top/main screen
On a conference call it would not imo
Was on a Zoom call a month or so ago that wasn't one of those where you can have 1,000+ people but only a few get their cameras and mics enabled by the invitation type. So we had a normal meeting which is therefore capped at, I think 250, and just hear someone very loudly flush the toilet in the middle of it. Because the meeting was capped we kept having people try to join and get rejected and very serendipitously I got kicked out right after the toilet flush and I couldn't get back in.
I always liked the emails on my birthday declaring the day "auspicious" and being wished many returns of the day
Not my coworker being annoying, but the jury duty system. Someone just sent an email asking for jury duty coverage. You call in the night before each of your assigned days to see if you need to go in. Their summons listed every weekday 9/6-9/29 to be potentially free. What kind of shit is that?
Rural county resident possibly? Pretty much have to pick your poison between longer terms or frequent summonses when your potential jury pool is only 10k people (i.e., half of Iowa's counties).
Also, 3 weeks is nothing compared to grand jury terms. Polk County is on call for 3 months. Federal is over a year I think.
I just had a jury duty summons sent to my parents house in my hometown where I haven’t lived for 14 years.
Currently in my jury duty window, AMA. Seated on first day, hung jury. Next report date in 3 weeks.
I had jury duty twice, reported on one day and was out the door by early afternoon both times.
We just moved into a new office that doesn't have the white noise system installed yet to help with sound control and I can hear multiple calls a day in stereo where people are calling in from their offices across the hall from each other.
so my English boss just told one of my employees who was relating how difficult her current business trip has been "keep your pecker up"
After the record scratch and then us all cracking up he explained that a pecker is a nose, so I guess it's similar to "keep your chin up"
