    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.

    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 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.

    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... :facepalm:

    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.

    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”

    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.

    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:
    upload_2022-7-7_10-23-56.jpeg

    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.

    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.
