    I'm finally submitting my resignation for my other job. I technically verbally quit back in April, but I agreed to stay on part-time to do the payroll until they find a replacement. The FINALLY got a replacement in October, and I was asked to stay on for a couple months for the transition period.

    Hopefully this means a lot more free time for you. I always thought it was crazy that you were working both for so long.

    Boss "What are you doing here today?"
    Me "Working"
    Boss "I have you on the vacation calendar"
    Me "No, i'm on vacation next week. I'll be in London."
    Boss "Oh...make sure your open items are covered"

    She walks away, I check the vacation calendar, nobody's time is updated. Apparently this team calendar is in her head. Either that or I have yet another outdated Outlook link to a calendar that no one is updating.

    English is most definitely this person's first language, which I suspected upon seeing his name in the emails, and confirmed after speaking to him on the phone. Initial irritating grammar mistakes aside, he's fucked up on the paperwork for this order TWICE, and I just had to call him again to get him to send over the new batch of paperwork with a new imprint, which should have been sent to me by yesterday at the latest. He sucks.

    Well then fuck that guy. get your shit done, fool. Seriously.

    wrong thread, but whatever. we were friends in the dream I had last night. You invited me and my wife over for the night and we found out you were crazy militant about recycling. You had your back patio and yard transformed into a recycling/composting center. it was pretty neat, but fucking weird.

    after three phone calls and five emails I was able to get inspection confirmed for tomorrow. so I pretty much got one thing accomplished today. sure I can write up that RFI and send it only to have it sit in someone's inbox till next week, but then what would I do tomorrow.

    I contacted our broker asking how an employee can request new insurance cards because an employee stated she might have accidentally thrown hers out.
    The reply I got was, "All they need to do is call the 800 number on the card and request new cards."

    This is the email I got from the girl who hates me at work:

    THERE IS AN ADDITIONAL LINE ON YOUR BILLING SHEET THAT STATES “COST CENTER: 12073M”. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? DOES THE CUSTOMER NEED TO HAVE THAT ON THE INVOICE? THANKS
    Had she looked in quickbooks, where she has to go in order to create the billing, she would have seen that the customer does require this on every invoice... but she would rather take the time out to type it to me... IN ALL CAPS, EVERY MOTHER FUCKING TIME.

    I have a parent that emails me in all caps at least every other day asking what assignments her son is missing or clarification on an in-class assignment that he needs to finish at home. Of course she can get all that information from my website and should maybe try to communicate with her son a little more. ALL CAPS are so LAME.

    I've just learned (AKA been volun-told) that I'm giving a 1/2 hour presentation on my job role and how it compares to our other department roles to our leadership team next week at our annual meeting.

    My cube buddy just left for maternity leave. I'm gonna miss her company.
    She was supposed to be due at the end of the month, but today, her doctor said "any day now".
    I'm excited for her, all in all.

    our VP is listening to the thong song, criss-cross, barbie girl, SMALL FUCKING WORLD, that "i'm blue, i would beat off a guy" song, and vanilla ice loudly. can i fucking just go home? apparently he has a playlist of the most annoying songs he says. awesome. thanks for sharing so loudly.

    and he said the thong song is an edited version, but i guess we have differing opinions on "let the booty go" and work.

    Hahaha, next time you should pin it to said employee's shirt everyday on the way out the door, so mommy can help them get their paperwork done right.
