    I kept falling asleep during a meeting today. Barely took any notes, and the notes I did take don't seem to make much sense to me.

    "Set up under damit"

    if it's a large and/or long meeting and it's not disruptive, I excuse myself to the restroom so as to not fall asleep. If I have to sit there, I put my hand up to my mouth and bite my finger, or if hands are below a desk or table, pinch myself. You can also try nibbling on the inside of your cheek, but that's more of a drymouth technique, which also helps stop you from saying "uhmmmm" a lot (thank you Toastmasters).

    Our work emails are usually FirstInitialLastName@. We have a new employee starting soon that would have the email slutz@.
    I'm not sure if I should move forward with this email address or choose an alternative.

    That is actually hilarious, however I would ask the new hire if they've ever encountered issues with how this reads in the past and see what they'd like you to do.

    I just called a guy that applied with us. Offered him an interview and he told me he didn't want to come in unless I could guarantee him a job with at least 20 hours of overtime. What a waste of my time.

    My old work had a guy named Chris Rapp, and I think they did the middle initial too.

    True story. I worked at a place where it was firstinitial-lastname format for e-mail, and a guy got hired named Craig Hump.

    That same day, I was about to send out an e-mail for everyone in the office, and had to pause to figure out what Craig's would be. When I got "chump" I thought, "Wow, I wonder if he realizes this."

    So I went into his office and asked him if he had been officially assigned his e-mail address yet. He said no. I told him the format that would be used, and before I could finish, he angrily interrupted and said, "Oh crap, not this again. I already went through this back in college."

    He stormed out of the office and went to the system administrator, who was obnoxiously refusing to deviate from the format because he was under strict orders "not to assign custom e-mail addresses", and it started getting louder and louder in there. The door closed, and I kept finding excuses to walk by in order to hear what was going on.

    Finally the door opened, Craig, stormed out, and I saw the sysadmin on the floor. Apparently Craig hit him, and he was immediately fired that same day.






































    Just kidding, this never happened, but I wish it did.

    Would you have rathered he came down for the interview and told you this in person?

    Sounds like he saved you time.

    What kind of economy exists in Austin that one can make those kinds of pre employment demands?

    I could've hired him for a 40/hr. a week job just fine. Seeing as he was fired from his last job for insubordination, he's really not in any kind of place to make demands like this. That's why I'm annoyed.

    It doesn't. We don't have one client that would allow that much overtime.

    Does anyone utilize an alternative to Microsoft Project that is free/low cost for managing projects/tasks/etc.? I have a few IT implementations that I'm needing to track and really don't want to pop for MS Project. Ability to create timelines/Gantt charts would be a plus. I've used Trello before with limited success.

    I interviewed for a sales coordinator position at my company, to secure that position I offered up a friend who I use to work with as a replacement candidate for my job. They told me I was over qualified for the job I wanted but offered me contract administrator job instead, then turned around and hired my friend for the original job I wanted. Her and I have the exact same work background and she has a degree, so she would be even more qualified than me. I'm kind of bothered by this.

    I haven't really said anything to her about it. They had originally proposed the job I am taking to her, then the operations manager saw my resume and I assume because he already knows me and my work product, he decided to put me in the contract admin job instead. The sales job doesn't really include any accounting, which was a big plus for me. I am a great project accountant, but I prefer admin duties, numbers are boring. It just makes more sense to put the girl with the accounting degree in the accounting job, but they don't make the best business decisions here.

    At least I will be getting out of my current department and all the negativity. So that's a plus, and I do like everyone on the new team, less paperwork chasing, so it's all a plus, just not what my heart desired.

    I did. It wasn't a full day though, just 4 hours. We played poker and had some good food. Nick's working up in Prescott for the next 8 weeks (2 hours north), he's up there Monday - Thursday and off on Friday. I am going to try to work it out so I can work over during the week and leave early on Friday too. My ultimate work week would be 4 10s, but I don't think they would go for that.
