    Boss from Forest Glen 2 comes over and asks me to work first shift there tomorrow. I politely decline because of my foot.

    ​​​​​​My boss called around 7:30 repeated the request. I said no again. And kept saying no until I hung up. I get a text from her asking "did you just hang up on me?"
    If this is a thing with your workplace, make sure you dot your I's and cross your T's when it comes to documentation regarding time off scheduled in advance. You don't want the refusal to work to come back and bite you in the rear.

    At my job, there's an insufficient supply of coffee and curse words to keep up with demands.

    Also some personal news. My wife is finally getting licensed and has been working at just below 0.75 FTE because of the ****hole scheduling in her current positioning. She's been interviewing with three companies (including internally). She already got two offers for four positions at one of the companies, including a position she didn't think she'd get. She also just wrapped up an interview at a very large company within her field.

    So incredibly proud of her for going for this and taking the scary steps into new territory. She's an amazing woman. Through all the hardships and everything she's gone through with this profession and education just ****ing her over, it's finally paying off.
    Congratulations to your wife!

    Congrats!

    i was in a bind yesterday over an internal manager offer I was making yesterday.

    market is crazy high, so hiring someone already here is cheaper than off the street. But our salaries are so far below market averages now- do I allow the requested 20% bump for a lateral move or do the traditional 10%? Creating inequalities on the team sucks, but I’d rather this person get a bigger bump now and not leave us in a month.
    You get a new job and bank the 20% lateral move personally.

    This is something everyone needs to work on and normalize. To me, the right thing to do is pay the person their value.


    Also, I agree that internal promotions are usually cheaper than external hires. I've been saying for...ever... that it's far cheaper to just pay people what they ask for than to have them leave and try to fill the position. It's also better in every other conceivable way, but in terms of straight dollars and cents (and sense?), it's still better.

    My boss lets us know and also gives us the on call supervisor for the time she's out.

    I barely tell anyone unless it will directly affect a project.

    Not a dig at all. Just pragmatic--and probably insensitive.

    No idea. It matters because we all are supposed to provide when we're going to be out. We've had three 1:1 conversations this week, you think it might have come up.
