Someone's cell phone went off during the company wide meeting today. Sarah McLauchlin's "I Will Remember You."
I start a new job in San Francisco on Wednesday. I'll be providing case assistance for a plaintiffs law firm. After going through a two hour marathon of interviews, I felt way under-qualified and out of place. But sure enough, here I am.
Coworker: The projector in the conference room hasn't been working properly all the time, who do I tell?
Me: If you let IT know, they'll fix it for you.
Coworker: Hey, I feel like I told you about this last week, but the projector STILL isn't working.
i feel your pain. i am THE only person who EVER submits a ticket to change printer cartridges or fix jams. one person told me the printers magically send a signal to IT that they are broke and they come fix it. this was after a printer was broken for two weeks. i opened a ticket and it was fixed the next day.
I get to leave on time today since several people are out sick and my 4pm meeting got rescheduled. There should be a law against Friday afternoon meetings that don't involve an open bar.
luckily document control handles the printer issues, otherwise I'm sure it would be the same situation here. so instead of the printer, it's the water bottle. I don't mind changing it, but, FUCKING TELL ME IT'S EMPTY!! lazy fucks.
I've been CCed on a bunch of emails between one of our managers and an outside temp agency consultant lately. For some reason the consultant's last name comes up first in the Outlook inbox (LAST, First), but it's a completely obvious and popular last name and a pretty distinct female first name, AND she signs her emails with her first name first. But our employee keeps addressing her by her last name. It's fantastic.

I don't know how old that post is, but congratsnon the new job, zenixdog!
the busy bee has no time for sorrow.
Is anybody else somewhat fascinated by workplace IM’s? Whether it’s one of the higher-ups mumbling incoherent phrases, the person who types like a txt msg, or the lifeless person whom you’ve never heard utter a single word using bright green font and excessive exclamation points.
The place I work is amazing. Health and vision coverage plus a nice little commuter check. Such a diverse office, too. It's a giant leap from my previous work - up here I'm treated like an adult!
yeah office talk, what's deal with people not knowing how to make a proper pot of coffee? I saw one of the office people at my job walk out of the kitchen area with her hands up in the air going I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO MAKE COFFEE ! We also have a Keurig machine which I personally do not like since it doesn't taste right to me.Recently though since the office part of the shop has introduce a plastic cup cut to the proper size for filling up with coffee ground to make the amount of coffee where everybody agrees isn't too strong nor too lite.Which has solved I DONT KNOW HOW TO MAKE COFFEE lady's problem.
I've updated my resume and one version of my cover letter for the first time in 3 years in anticipation of an upcoming job application. Am I mistaken or was someone on here an HR manager or recruiter who was offering to take a quick look at people's resumes? Might have been in my original Office Space thread that got locked for some reason. I'm already having a couple of HR folks and a marketing c-level exec take a look at it for me, but would always appreciate a second set of eyes.
Note: not looking for detailed proofreading or rewriting; just overall impressions and any helpful suggestions.
My job is moving to Dallas, but we have decided to NOT move to Dallas, so I had a talk with my boss this morning. I'm going to have to start transitioning my daily duties and acting as a consultant to the team in Texas. But she did tell me that I have at least 12 - 18 months left, so that's good I guess.
12-18 months? That's more notice than most people get, should be plenty of time to line up something else. Good luck!
For sure. But on the positive side, having real world experience helping a company during a large cultural shift is something that recruiters seem to find valuable. At least that's been my experience having come from several orgs which have gone through dramatic restructuring. And, you have at least a year to build up some new impressive achievements on that resume. Or, you know, finally sleep with that co-worker who's been giving you a ladyboner.
That is true. I'm going to spend the next year pretty much exclusively working on a long-term recognition strategy and implementing a long-term, multi-million dollar recognition program for a Fortune 100 company. Plus, I'll be able to get a certification completed that I need to complete and stuff. I've had my ups and downs here but I really like my boss, I get paid a decent wage, and I have a ton of work/life balance...so that'll be hard to say goodbye to.
ThatGirl rocks. That is all.
Me: Hey _____ you entered this credit as a debit, can you please re-enter the document correctly?
Him: Well if it's a credit it should say CREDIT on the top.
Me: Well, the dollar amount is in brackets, so that automatically means it's a credit.
Him: No, not always....
