    The good stuff must have been diverted to the FEMA deathcamps.

    Either way the Right can DIAF.

    One massive "irony" in this are the companies who are saving billions NOT doing planned renovations. My company had a multi-year, multi-billion dollar plan to update our entire campus- so far, two parking structures have been done, and there have been massive delays getting it really started. Talk about good timing.

    The buildings will still be there, but the company just celebrated 120 years- so it's not as if the land isn't already owned, and, for the most part, all of the investment into the actual buildings has paid off.

    Our new work model is hybrid, with the emphasis on WFH. Regular "at work" meetings are not allowed- they have to have real reasons.

    And I work for one of the larger companies in the country.

    Someday that may shift back- but I'll be long gone before that happens.

    The entire USG may follow.

    It doesn't affect those of us in cleared space, but it's a huge repudiation to the cavemen who said remote would never work because "people are sneaky and lazy." No. Righties are sneaky and lazy. People work to be fulfilled.

    Little by little, the petty overseers are losing their grip. White collar work serfdom is dying. Blue collar work slavery is, sadly, very much alive, and a lot of workers will vote to protect it!

    I was talking with my manager today about the return to office. I wanted to know what she was expecting of me. She thinks it will be a slow roll over the first 5-6 months, meaning we can do what we want. If I want to just go in two days, I can. If I choose to not go in one day, I can, etc. However in the fall, depending on where we are in the world, there may be a more formal request to head back to the office. I work in Corporate Headquarters and we own our buildings in the campus but the cost to keep them open and active (lights, heat, etc.) with no one in them may mean the need to sell off space, etc. We'll see.

    Yes and no. "Nobody wants to work" started as just the latest lame Boomerism equivalent to the "welfare queens" trope of the 80s. These retiring or retired fossils think they still make the rules and that they are entitled to quick service with a smile and a thank you from someone making peanuts who can't even afford health insurance. Unfortunately, it has trickled down to younger Dumpies.

    My boss yesterday sends me a text before 5 AM asking me to come in due to a call off.

    ​​​​​
    I left her on "read" and roll back over.

    7 AM, I wake up, and I'm going about my day. 7:30, she calls and I let it go to voicemail.

    It was honestly the most powerful I've felt in a while.

    Looking forward for upcoming weekend and first family camping trip this year. Can't wait!We ordered so much from Camping World last week and i am so happy with the quality of all those things which arrived. Definitely i am going to write them a positive review on the website. The customer service was also very helpful in helping me choose all the right things.
