Re: Millennial crybabies in the workplace

Yeah, first: taking on a Project Person at work is dangerous. If enough people know you are trying to help, it can sometimes bite you on the azz. So...I don't know, be careful. She could have some sort of DRAMA and the spotlight could swing around [more]

Re: Smartphone plans

It wasn't until I left T-Mobile that I realized that it wasn't always necessary to stand in a window to have a phone conversation or get data service. They're cheap, but in the places where I spend my time, the service blows. However, in Vegas, [more]

Re: Stuff I Don't Get

A manager, who'd gotten in a fair bit of hot water for being generally incompetent, took 5-6 weeks off. And now she's back like nothing happened. I just don't get how some people can get away with stuff like that, while some of us who aren't [more]

Re: Smartphone plans

If you spend significant amounts of time in remote areas and want any data service at all, Verizon is the best choice by a significant margin.

Re: Navel Gazing

My take on this, after years of knowing you, is that you have two "issues" here:

1) you can't say no
2) you are super-reliable

Until one of those change, things probably won't change.

So, you can learn to tell [more]

Work: Ugh. We have completed the transition of being acquired by The Umbrella Corporation and have completed our first quarterly close. It was rough. 95% of the problem is that our division's old upper mgt has been kept in place on a probationary [more]

Re: question

Is it just me? (RJ need not answer!)

Thanks for the thread.

The problem with dual monitors

We have to work this weekend. We also worked last weekend. I have been working from home, so it isn't as bad as it could be, but it still sucks.
