IDGAF - it shouldn't be 90 degrees in any office building. Ever. I get it that you don't care if I personally am too hot and might pass out, but don't you care that your computers might overheat? No? Kinda like how you care if the software is actually working.... okay, I get it. (and yes, it really is 90 degrees in here. It's even hotter if I open the windows. No fan has been provided and I didn't really want to bring my only working desk fan that I have at home.... )

My husband lost his job in April and the job market here sucks so bad right now. Companies are really taking advantage of the people who lost their jobs. Dozens of jobs are posted right now that require a bachelor's degree, five years of experience, multiple certifications, leadership experience, and only pay 30k a year or less. It's criminal. But people need money and insurance. It's disgusting to take advantage of people in desperate times. Fuck those companies.

You know what? I wouldn't get such horrific anxiety every time I had a computer problem if I thought for ONE MINUTE that I might get some help, or that you even give two shits about it. Every time there's a problem, I'm left twisting in the fucking wind and told "don't worry about it" by you. That's awesome, I'll just be over here not able to do my job because the fucking software doesn't work right, and I won't worry about it! Woot! And the fucking CW that you refuse to fire, who doesn't have DICK to do but shows up here all the time anyway.... I can't listen to her anymore. I can't. You deal with her fucking ass when she went through THREE ink cartridges and still couldn't get her printer to work because it was OUT OF FUCKING PAPER. I can't. You know what? OF COURSE I have anxiety. And it's whatever, dude. Go home and ignore any problems I might have. Cool cool.

In response to a confession. I would be pissed too, if my job posted a bogus "gotcha" photo that turned out to be false. It's stressful as hell right now as an essential employee. That was a real shitty thing to do to people who are already stressed during a pandemic. Why not just send out a friendly reminder, detailing the company's policy?

Does this comment strike you as odd? I was mentioning to my CW that I was taking a day of PTO for my wedding anniversary. He happened to see my wedding picture on my desk and said "So do you still fit in your wedding dress?" I'm not sure why that rubbed me the wrong way. I just feel like maybe it was a bit too personal of a comment. Or maybe I'm just overreacting because I've had idiot male coworkers and bosses in the past. I don't want to like, get him fired or reprimanded but I just felt like it was not the right thing to say to a female colleague.

In response to a confession. I think I spoke too soon about my new coworker. She is indeed really nice, but she's also lazy AF. She was supposed to help me move all the stuff out of our old offices to our new office area and she basically made me do it all. And instead of wanting to learn our spreadsheets, she said she would be online shopping for new things for our office. And on Monday she wants us to take company time to go to Walmart to buy new office furniture. Um....I don't know if she's really going to last long in our company. Unfortunately.

Ahh, the new world of Zoom. I've done Zoom Meditation (awesome), Zoom Trivia Night (through an affiliation - wasn't that fun, left early) and will do Zoom Yoga today. We just started using Zoom at work and I'm trying got get more familiar with the program and all its features. We plan to host a huge online conference in two months, I'm organizing an forum next week that already has 100 sign ups and trying to not get nervous. I'm wondering what have you taken on Zoom? What worked well and what didn't so work? Thanks so very much for sharing, CCC. :)

Today we sent out a communication that didn't have people social distancing (pic was taken before COVID) and I really didn't even realize this until someone emailed us a really mean email degrading our organization. Wow, please calm the EFF down, sir. This error should not negate all the great work we do in our community for over 30 years, but clearly you don't see anyone of it behind your rude attitude.

OK, pet peeves. 1. DON'T assume that I work until 5:00 pm after you've been told (repeatedly) that I work until 4:30 pm... and then wonder why I don't get your email a few minutes before 5:00 and now you have to have the person who actually WORKS FOR YOU do the work! 2. If I ask you a question about something to be filed, ANSWER ME. I'm not asking because I like typing questions... it's because there's a damned deadline! I had to file something today so it wasn't past the deadline, and have to make changes and file an amended version tomorrow. 3. I send a daily appointment and reminder email. READ the damned thing!! There's important information on there but I also need to know who is doing what.

I love it when people still do things like write litters or send TY cards. I'm a really big fan of doing this myself.
