    I don't feel like working today so I'm not going to. Instead, I'm going to surf reddit and look at new cars.

    I called in late today because I was having weird side effects from a shot I received yesterday. My boss told me to just take the day off.
    I am still in my sweat pants waiting for Maury to come on.

    My coworker went on vacation for a week, I noticed that dishes were left stacked in the sink all last week, I had assumed it was one of the lazy boys I work with. I figured my coworker must wash dishes for them when she leaves at night. I just left them there, because I do enough for these lazy fuckers, I refuse to wash their dishes on top of it. So today my coworker comes back and I tell her that one of the boys dirtied all the community dishes and I have just been leaving them in the sink hoping they would get the hint. She tells me that it was her, she left them there before she went on vacation and assumed someone would wash them. Seriously? No, wash your own fucking dishes. I feel a little bad because I was talking shit about the boys all week.

    It is. I expect that from these boys, but I assumed the women would have better manners.

    I have a job interview after work today. Think good thoughts for me.

    Good luck Audra!

    i'm waiting for a position to open up on a team that i really like here at work. already spoke to the manager and I think I have a pretty good shot. Lateral move, but more room for growth. It's hourly with lots of OT during busy periods so i guess it's sort of a raise and i can work from home part time. Working from home has been something i've avoided, but this position is a lot of conference calls with new client setups, so i don't think it would be too hard to adjust to working in shorts.

    My ultimate goal would be to have a job I could occasionally work from home at. I would also love if there was some travel included in my job.

    Hooray! If you need some pointers before you go to the interview, check out my Job search thread - there is a bunch of stuff posted in there relatively recently that may help!

    Thanks chica, I think I am good, I have done this same interview for the same type of company for 18 years now. If I ever get an interview in something other than construction I will definitely need some help though.

    I find it absolutely amazing that individuals in an OFFICE find it acceptable to NOT do their own god damn dishes.

    But then again, I have been washing every single dish I use immediately after cooking/eating. Seriously, you'll never catch me with dishes in the sink longer than two hours after use.

    I wasn't even here on Friday afternoon so I missed the whole thing. And apparently, he got really angry and there was a whole tantrum. I'm pissed I missed it. I would have stayed here all night to hear that shit go down.

    A rather annoying conversation i just had with another engineer at work.

    Me: "hey do you have second?
    Him: Yes!
    Me: Oh good! I need help running a test doing this thing that will require 2 humans using the software we use here for everything.
    Him: Oh. I have a second because I'm waiting for this personal project to render suing a different piece of software that will be locking up the hardware the other software needs to function for the next 20 minutes.

    Great. Thanks for the help.

    I have never had anyone take food off my desk but one of my bosses stole my ruler off my desk, then when I tried to get it back he scratched his back hair with it so I wouldn't want it anymore. I finally ordered another one and he took that one too. Fucker.

    My interview went really well. He told me he wants me to come in again this week to meet with the owner. Keep the good thoughts going!

    We've got a job at the morongo casino starting in a week with a general contractor we've never done work before.
    Due to the dicking around of the architect, an oversight on our end, and too fancy for it's own good wallcovering, we're out 15K already.
    And this is my project.

    Sneak a little extra into your next change orders, you got this!

    I have an interview tomorrow with a company that does the exact same thing my current company does, so they are really interested since I am coming from their competiter and have all of the experience. I am not that excited about it because it's probably going to be just like working here, but there is hope they might be a little less redneck. The plus side is it's 5 miles from my house, but I am moving in 3 weeks and that will no longer be the case. I don't know if it's even worth it to do the interview.

    Already tried that. There were 4 change orders that I had already attempted to disperse the lost money over. This job is thee perfect storm. Being that it is an Indian reservation/casino/project, EVERYTHING must be tax free. So, that means the GC, owner, designer, and architect will be receiving every single material+shipping invoice, so our change order can only consist of labor. So that cuts down on our attempt at extra fluff by a huge percentage.
    This single project, incredibly small in scope, has been a full time job for me. I am averaging 15 emails a day from the leed AP/Superintendent, let alone the back and forth between wallcovering and paint reps trying to figure out what the hell the architect is doing.

    Anyways, best of luck on the new job opportunity. Coming from the other side of it, hiring people from competitors/industry is always a fantastic thing (integrity of the person depending of course).
    We've been in business for almost 40 years, and take on LARGE projects, but you can still consider this a mom and pop deal I guess, but more like a pop and son business. All that to say, I totally understand what you mean by how certain positions can take on far too many hats. We are currently working through that issue with our PM.
    Myself, for example, my main title is estimator/sales, but that easily bleeds over into project managing (such as this shit ass casino job). And my bids/sales are definitely taking a hit because of this job.

    Keep us posted on how it goes for you.

    Don't ask me if I have time to do something, then tell me you'll be there in 5-10 minutes, and still not be there 30 minutes later. The answer to your question has now changed now that you have completely changed the parameters of the situation. Ugh.
