Re: Millennial crybabies in the workplace

Any suggestions?

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 [more]

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.

Re: Navel Gazing

To be fair, division of household labor is acceptable, and when it's out of balance it is easily discussed and remedied.

Re: Navel Gazing

Thank you all, it felt good to "think it out" while pulling the post together.

1) Mondays for August and September are booked, and I'll book the rest once I've talked to T.

Re: Counter-top toaster oven

Does anyone here have one? If so, what do you use it for?

We had one (well actually two over that time) for years, and it was super handy for smaller items. I still cooked larger things in the big oven, but smaller meals I could use [more]

Warning: this is super scrolly and introspective and really, seriously all about me and my own peculiar ability to overanalyze everything. You’ve been warned.

Re: FirstLock

Can you wait and see, and just sign him up for a different camp that doesn't require such a long time line?

And maybe, even aside from the social anxiety, he's just a kid that doesn't like sleepover camp. I never did. Day camps were fun! [more]

Re: Damn

The grandbabies had one. They used to pretend they were at the drive-in movie, when watching TV.

Don't know if I posted this at the time, but shortly after he got it for Xmas (was a hand-me-down, so free to us): he came rushing down [more]

Re: GIGO

Please do all of this asking via email so you have documentation of why you didn't provide it.

There is nothing quite as sweet as pulling up an email from three months ago warning of the *exact thing* people are trying to blame you [more]

Re: GIGO

They want me to control for the garbage data, but I end up having to do manual work to make it happen, which means I can't automate stuff.

Can you push back on the data at the source?

Preach it. Except in this shop, new employees get the task of assembling their office furniture after it arrives from Office Depot and I get stuck running the cables in this awful warehouse... and if they're lucky, the furniture arrives before [more]

Re: Fun & Games, too.

So anyway, I'm looking for a new program.

Funny isn't it? They could have easily worded the email a little differently, and smoothed things over. But instead, they push you towards something else.
