Dear Constructors of Library Shelves,
It would be a whole lot easier to calculate how many linear feet of shelving we have if the shelves had been built uniformly. Thank you for you quirky construction, and for making me have to measure each range individually.
I am once again the only person in my office doing any work. Had they not laid everyone off and instituted a hiring freeze, we could actually get stuff done. Instead, I'm on day 2 of inputting permits, calculating use fees, and checking insurance and 501c3 statuses by myself. This was a 4 person job at one point...

Hell or highwater, fire and brimstone, not even cancer is powerful enough to keep me from Coachella!
I have, many times in the last few weeks, felt like I was in one of the office scenes from fight club. the earlier scenes, before he was fighting. sigh.
So, my India team looks like they get to double dip when it comes to Holidays; 16 of them!

1. this one girl's laugh makes me stabby. it sounds like she's trying really had to have a cute laugh and sounds totally fake.
2. STOP SCRATCHING YOUR LEG THROUGH YOUR TIGHTS WHEN I AM IN THE GODDAMNED ROOM. AHHHHHH, THE NOISE.
3. i'm in a terrible mood today. too many requirements, too little time.
I just had the overwhelming desire to reply to an email from my boss with
I do advanced technical phone support, and I work until midnight. Follow this logic...
1)Company decides early in the day that my department is going to be understaffed from 8pm to midnight due to a event expected to drive call volume.
2)Company decides to simply close the transfer lines to my department at 7:45 to avoid putting people in a long call queue. This is pretty standard procedure, but it's usually temporary.
3)They give my department...the understaffed one...the option to go home early.
4)Meanwhile, less-qualified people are now required to do my job...which increases their average call time, and therefore their hold queue gets longer.
5)Those of us who refused to go home because we're broke get assigned to "overflow" calls. My phone starts ringing like mad, but it's all luck of the draw. So I get calls that are very basic and I can finish very quickly, while a guy who just started today might have to do my job.
6)This is the best part...sometime after 9:30, my phone stops ringing. The theory is that a shift started somewhere in an overseas call center, eliminating the overflow. I make an outgoing followup call on a problem, catch up on some clerical details and then go take a break.
7)I come back from break at 10, and I never answer the phone the rest of the night. Meanwhile, some guy in the Philippines is trying to do my job for 12% of my pay. For that matter, there are people within sight of my desk trying to do my job for about 20% less than I make, while I sit there.
8)Finally, 100s, maybe 1000s of calls get under/poorly served because the people qualified to handle the calls were sent home or paid to sit and web surf.
I guessed Cox because I have to put up with their bullshit every time I call. I also do inbound customer service for a large local company (I also live in Chandler), and god damn I know I do a better job than Cox does.
I'm going through applications for some new positions I posted and found this gem.
Some of the highlights:
Skills and experience(this a multiple choice area of the application)
Most recent employer section/ reason for leaving
MNGR. WAS NOT PAYING ME
May we contact this employer for a reference?
All the above references were listed as "friend"
How did you find out about this position?
If you were referred by a current employee, enter their name and department.
I may call this one in for an interview. After I check her references.

I hate to say it, but we have not had a section meeting at my work in months, and I miss not having them. Morale at my work is low. We are in the middle of a merger with another company, so maybe that is why they stopped doing meetings.
I'm taking a mental health day today.
As we go through this period of change, I'd like to start it with an old story I think can help set the tone. A sports team found itself having trouble remaining profitable and in looking for ways to cut costs, discovered it was spending a very high amount on soap and shampoo in the locker room. They had a practice of placing bottles of the preferred products in the showers for the team to use, but on average were replacing a bottle of each product every three days. When the manager went to the coach with the problem he indicated that this was because the players were simply taking the bottles home to use and he would restock them. The manager was irate and said they needed to fix this immediately. There was no way they could continue this practice. One month later the manager was looking over the budget and saw that they were now back on budget. Pleased with this he went down to the locker room to talk to the coach, but was dismayed when he saw the shampoo and soaps still in the showers. He approached the coach and complimented him on bringing the expense down, but was quite upset that he had not complied with the manager's method of doing it. He asked him " how did you control the cost yet still provide the products?" The coach looked at him and said "we took the caps off the bottles, that way they can't put them in their bags to take home." The best solutions don't come from management, they come from you.
I have no idea how I did this without laughing the whole time.
