    Seeing all of the strikes, one wonders if more people will finally notice the theft from the lower part of the economy to the top. I kind of doubt it, but one can hope. I just can't see people realizing that they are being manipulated for single items so that tax cuts can happen.

    "Capt. Kirk" just launched into space via a giant phallus looking thing.

    That's the post.

    According to one player I know, in the 1980s WCHA that was the "magic word" to get a deuce for unsportsmanlike. I guess you could carpet-bomb F-bombs but one of those was a bridge too far.

    I've let slip "fuck" a few times unmuted. I've told someone to "fuck right off" to his face during an argument (we went out for beers later lol).

    but I can't say I've ever have the gonads to call someone a cunt lol. ;-)

    I was on a 9-person work video chat today where two people came this close to a screaming match. One was one of my team's leadership and the other was one of our lead developers.

    The customer was on the call.

    Luckily there were others from our side who jumped in and deftly redirected and the program lead snapped out of it but the DevOps dude was ready to throw down. He's old and I don't think he really cares anymore, and there's unbelievable pressure on our tech teams, but holy mother of god it was not good.

    I'll do you one better. The person who sent me the email described below? Architect with an MBA from a private school. Final boss level **** there.

    Was sent a snarky and unprofessional email today and it was CCed to about a dozen people.

    I emailed the person back (just him) and said I thought I did my due diligence and if I screwed up I wanted to learn from the mistake and have a path forward. But I also didn't appreciate the disrespectful tone.

    If I misunderstood his tone, I had given him the opportunity to say "You misunderstood, just trying to help you out." Instead, he confirmed it by dressing me down with an even more disrespectful call. So, now I get to play damage control with my boss over a relatively minor and fixable issue.

    I'm guessing my boss will tell me to tell the other guy to pound sand. The more senior engineer on the project said "Actually, these guys have been on the project longer than you or me. The question I have is where did THEY screw up?"

    Architects are the biggest fucking dicks on the planet. Self importance of engineers and artists combined with half the value of either.
    Surgeons called. They said check out litigators.

    Got a response this morning to an invite from a client's chief enterprise architect, which literally said, "Please do not put meetings on my calendar without speaking to my PA first."

    Oh I'm sooooo sorry SIR, I must've missed the time rip I flew through at some point over the weekend, since I wasn't aware we were living in 1961 and not 2021.

    Since Friday is my last day with the firm I almost thought about firing that back, but I bit my tongue. It's not the firm's fault that some folks who work for the client are jerks to us, so I didn't want it blowing back on the rest of the team or reflecting poorly in the event I end up trying to return at some point.

    I've dealt with that, too. We work with an external agency and don't have access to their calendars like we do with everyone else in the company so when we schedule meeting with them, we have to say "Here are our available times, do any of these work for you?" Like, we pay you. I shouldn't have to waste my time going through calendars, compiling open times and sending to them.
    I have to do that constantly. I work with outside vendors and a lot of internal clinical folks for whom non-patient-visit calendars are a mystical source of confusion, so I can't just check their calendar availability and schedule.

    Yesterday, I had a kiddo try to grab my badge, my necklace, my shirt, and my leggings. After the shirt and leggings, I retreated to a safe observation distance.

    Downside of the job. After he did that, I was drained for the rest of the session.
