In the office today. Everyone on my team has been on it for 4+ years. We're pretty set in our ways. We kind of have an unofficial special status in that we dont have to do any of the dumb corporate team building stuff. Basically we're good at our jobs, we blow out our quotas and we are left alone. They decided to expand a few teams and we are one of them. The new guy is trying way too hard to integrate. Cant really blame him, but his way of bonding is asking extremely dumb questions like
- Bruschetta is just Italian salsa, Agree or not?
It's painful. I pulled him aside and told him he doesn't have to try so hard. Just invite people to go to lunch, come to happy hour. Just hang out. He's good at his job because he pushes to move forward, but man that's not a good way to make friends.
I havent had a Shawn style work rant in a while so thank you for reading or just skipping over.
Have you tried sucking his dick hehehehuhuh
This just triggered me
Back at my old agency (like you, i was there for 3.5 years and set in my ways) we had someone who constantly asked the blandest debate-style questions like that
"neftlix or hulu, whats better?"
Leadership would always respond with some form of LOL! or "that's a good question"
I suspect this dude took some class in college, or some sort of business coach training where he thinks these kind of things are how you move up the ladder. It's like he has a dialog tree he just shifts through. My boss has almost zero tolerance for this stuff, so Im curious why he hired him. He is good at his job, but as I said - such a cheese dick.
He also is going ham on the break room snacks. Dude is going to fat as fuck. Again - cant blame him. Everyone does it. when they first start. Our break room is ridiculous. But every little thing he does, annoys the shit out of me. He loves veggie straws and either blows through them before he eats it or dangles it out of his mouth like a cigarette. It's been a month. We're all just waiting for him to chill the f out.
I like when I meet people who have very obviously read that How to Win Friends and Influence People book
I like rewatching occasional episodes of shows like criminal minds that have a shit load of guest stars. It’s kind of fun to recognize more of them as I have watched more series and/or movies. Like I just flipped on a live rerun and noticed it was Frank Sobotka holding people hostage on a train, and I hadn’t noticed that before.
Invite him here, he will eventually shit post here and will stop texting
So y’all just hired fat Andy Bernard?
Due to a nationwide anesthesiologist shortage, we've been utilizing locums. Apparently one of them is vaping and eating a bag of chips behind the drape during a pretty big Neuro lumbar fusion case...
What is a locum?
maybe someone should tell them about malpractice suits for anesthesiology
The hospital’s attorneys HATE him. This one locums trick to living his best life:
Every surgeon wants to pay anesthesiologists less and then when they don't have enough good ones they cry about it.
Meanwhile, savvy anesthesiologists with a good practice can pull in over a $1M and then wonder why the surgeons want to cut them out of the profits.
I’m eating chips (dill pickle kettle) and vaping thc (train wreck) at my “desk” right now. God bless wfh.
There is some amazing stuff in here
Mainly the sketch of the woman in the 35-55 range of the advertisement for intermittent fasting.
My work started this driving safety course that every employee has to do; it’s been going on for over a year now and is five years long. Each month you get a new module that’s 10-20 minutes. I’m like six months behind. Had a call with my manager today and she brought it up.
“Hey you’re pretty behind on those classes. If you’re more than two months behind you lose the badge [green circle around your Teams picture that says 100% safe] and you get out on the naughty list.”
“oh yeah I’ll do it. Is there a charge code for that since it’s company mandated safety training?”
“well most people do it in the morning before work on their own time”
“Sure but I don’t think they should be doing that”
“…you can use <xyz> if you want”
Corporate America is soul sucking
Get that hexagon bullshit out of here
I hate when people at work go by a nickname/random short form that doesn’t match their official company name. You go to email or meet them for the first time and don’t know what to call them since using a nickname/short form off the bat feels a bit weird.
You can call me t-bone
My daughter has officially kicked her $12 a day formula habit and is on to regular milk
Why are you still here?
Because I can
But the logo looks nice even though it did not utilize circles.
I remember those days...We're gonna save so much money when our kids;
get off formula
stop wearing diapers
don't require daycare
Daycare for my two is what someone would pay in mortgage for a $500k house right now. I'm going to be making it rain all over home depot when the day comes
Narrator: He didn't make it rain
There will be another expense. Sports, dance, camps, tutors, glasses, braces, etc. Kids and houses are money pits.
Houses are money pits, but at least they appreciate
You can't just let me have this, huh
Fuck no, none of us got it. You ain't special.
Maybe we could buy them a sweet gaming PC for their 5th birthdays and encourage addiction keeping them indoors and socially averse throughout their youth. Should leave enough for a new boat
It's time my enemies shared my dread.
any philly area posters Weeknd fans?
might have to sell two tickets for next thursday
Batman Begins (2005)
I live in a town that has an old rail line that was converted into a 60+ mile bike trail. The town revived its 1880’s era downtown by creating parking for people who bring their bikes, with everything a brewpub or restaurant now.
A newish (2021) restaurant/bar with a bicycle theme has one of these in their lobby:
They received enough requests that they are proposing a day later this month to have patrons sign a waiver and ride it.
The picture is pretty accurate for scale.
Not a bike rider but that downtown sounds awesome.
A penny-farthing. I saw a dude cruising down the road in Denver on one of those earlier this summer.
In case anyone else was curious how you get on the things
And a dude face planting. Couldn’t get it to embed. Sorry
I got a new tester this week that goes by a nickname. Luckily my Product Owner kicks ass and warned me ahead of time.
Well it's in Ohio, so it probably smells bad. Otherwise I'm sure it's very pleasant.
tjsblue loves the fact that, outside of downtown, there was no planning on road construction, so every road has a 15 mile an hour S curve at some point to avoid someone’s 150 year old farm house.
Don’t let them bully you Shawn. You’re like the fat chick the really good looking girls kept around as a confidence booster for whenever they were feeling down.
