    You just be like 'oh shit, that's right. You had an appointment at_______. ' but that kind of attitude isn't good for business, so don't listen to me.

    Always a thin line there. You don't want to get taken advantage of, but you don't want to be the asshole.

    i'm currently eavesdropping on a conversation of my co-workers talking about situations where they couldn't understand someone's accent and then making fun of said accents.

    My job is moving to another building, not too far away from the current one, and we just got back from checking out the building. The move date is April 5. Of course when you're settled and used to routine change of any kind sucks but I think for the most part I'll get used to this just fine. The only downsides are the cubicle walls are lower and partially glass (of course, I half-expected this) and despite my best efforts to maintain the same setup with my computer monitor facing INWARD (away from traffic) there may be a small chance it may be facing outward. So hopefully that isn't the case. All the other little changes I can deal with. It's not a bad place and near lots more 'stuff" (food, mall, etc.)

    i get that documenting things in a precise manner and reading and responding to emails can be boring. but guess what, you're a project manager, that's your fucking job. don't like it, do something else. i get that sometimes you have to complete a document just to appease management, but the exercise is meaningless if i who has now inherited your work cannot understand what your text is trying to convey. how is "volume control?" a root cause?!?!?! we don't work on stereos and the pain point isn't that people were loud. god how i hate working with this girl. if i tried to ask her what all of this meant, i wouldn't get an answer or would be treated like everything was obvious as though i am a mind-reader.

    Just took a virtual training class on "Seamless Service". Pretty cool. For most online training, I used to be able to tune out and multi-task, but the trainer kept everyone very engaged. She had us write in answers, constantly changing colors to "vote" on things and confirm we were done with tasks, and also put us into sub-conference calls at least 3 times. Best use of online training in a while. Too bad i sit in a noisy aisle and people kept coming over to ask me questions -___-

    I think old age is setting in. I use to be very good about attaching the attachment I reference in the email I am sending. In the last two weeks I have forgotten to attach the attachment more times than I can count. I have always wondered why this happened so often, how hard is it to remember to hit attach? Apparently it's harder than I thought. Grrrrr.

    I hope they give us the keycards for the new building BEFORE we move so I can go in over the weekend and make sure they're setting my cube up correctly.

    As a frequent user of our VPN I was asked to test a new application we're using to secure passwording in our systems with mobile verification. This little test has now removed my access link from our VPN and all my documents. Oh lovely day.

    Someone emailed me and copied all the guys that I work with and somehow thought my name is Audro... So now that is what everyone is calling me. I guess it's better than Audrey.

    People always misread the L in my name and think it's Mario. Then if I call them they are shocked to hear a woman's voice. Happens all the time.

    I am sitting at my desk listening to 3 old women discuss what their neighbors have in their yard and what is and isn't ok with the HOA. I hope I am never so bored with life that I worry about what color cushions the neighbor has on his lawn furniture.

    i had a one-on-one with my department vice president today. he called me one of the "quiet" ones of the group. that always cracks me up. i'm here to work, not socialize. let's get our work done and go home. i mean, i'm friendly with people, but i'm not going to socialize all day. and i'm not going to whine and complain like some of the other people because we have it pretty good here.

    look tech asshole, i'm not the fucking tech support person. people come to me for help because i'm helpful and generally know what i'm doing. so if i can't figure it out and you're going to change everything to be even more difficult, why the fuck can't YOU send out an email instructing people what to do. why do people have to come to ME, the non tech support person for help when you could just send an email and i could tell people to reference that. fucking asshole.
