  • There’s a reason AA has been around for so long. For enough people it seems to work. Won’t for everyone, probably won’t for most. But it’s worth a shot if you need the help.

    • Flash Sales.

      It sucks when you have an item that you know will be put on sale so you wait. But then when the window opens, for one reason or another, you miss it.

      Was waiting on a pair of rain bibs from an online retailer. Reg. $449, but they went on closeout last Fall. Been hovering around $399, but this place does random 40%-50% flash sales on their clearance. The e-mails go out around 4pm EST and sale is good till 11:59PM EST. Bibs went on there yesterday, but didn't get around to checking e-mail until now... Just got XXL and XXXL left...

          • That ain’t going to keep your blood pressure low.

            ugh. I’m really sorry MNS. This is a ****ed up system we’ve got here.

            • My coworker's inability to stop talking really grinds my gears. She's lucky I'm not approving her time (yet). I certainly wouldn't be approving overtime for her to talk to another employee about politics for an hour.

              I want a spray bottle to try and train her like a cat. I'll leave it near her desk and anytime she spends more than 5 minutes talking about something not work related, whoever notices can spray her.

              My method is going to be micro-managing her and give her a task to do every time she starts rambling, but each time I'm going to think about a spray bottle. *spritz* "bad, no, get to work"

              • wT that had me chuckling.

                Doing evaluations grinds my gears for a bunch of reasons.

                1. The idiots who made the tool made the directions 2 close typed pages long- No one reads 2 pages of directions which leads me to
                2. the idiots who do not read the directions. No matter how I try to tell them, they grade themselves in a way that would require them being failed out or needing a written warning. Whutthefvck.
                3. the ones who do not read the directions and grade themselves on how they perform in the workplace, not in my Clinical. again whutthefvck?!

                I even made them hold up their fingers while I said if you give this (holding up one or two fingers) then you get a written warning. Nope.

                The structure of the tool is dumb. they didn't figure out the process until past when I met my students. I had emailed my students saying we would be doing it, reviewed it (again) during class, told them the due date, emailed the due date and told them to upload. After this the faculty posted procedure on Canvas. None of the students read the notice and I had some of them telling me they weren't warned. I cut and pasted the pertinent part and hit reply all for my previous email.

                Jeebus. These people think they want to work in hi test areas like ER, ICU. Sure- that will work well. Um the patient is blue. Oh, well you didn't tell me to look and doing something is optional.

                GHAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
