This lab equipment is "home made", by our industrial engineering group (who needs this for testing in the factory).

Needless to say, its complicated, has a complete and extensive software interface,
but
it doesnt come with a manual, tutorial or anything. Its basically like throwing a dog a bone and saying "have fun".

Then, in the next townhall we will be told again that the R&D/sales ratio is too big and we are too expensive.

How about spending some fucking money for fucking handbooks, fuckers?

But they do have the cash to spend for a x-mas party exclusively for our customers like MoFO..erm FoMoCo. Angry

As a preface, given that it is 3 AM where I live...gotta stop drinking coffee... Facepalm

Do you read the "Dilbert" comic strip? Is it available in Germany? A lot of what happens in that comic strip reflects the reality of working as an engineer. Yes

How much sadness can a heart take before it just can't take it anymore?

Unfortunately, you don't know until it happens.

So sad about your troubles.

I will tell you what happens. You become shut off to pain and sadness. All you are really capable of is anger. Fortunately for the most part, my anger is for the most part cold. I will retaliate if needed, but in such a way that it looks like I am just minding my own business. I think I can experience happiness on some level. The jury is still out on that one though.

When I left I knew that the store looked fucking horrible. When my boss got in the next morning, yesterday, he was so furious he was seriously considering cancelling his holiday leave. Naturally, he chewed my manager's manager out who chewed my manager out who in turn had a massive bitch to me about said member they were trailing out to become a supervisor, saying that my boss said that she basically lost the position.

Now, I'm not saying I didn't put in 100% effort on purpose because I knew they were testing her out and that I was the only decent one on her team that night and knew nothing would be done unless I did it myself or lit a fire under some Christmas casuals asses. Buuut... if she doesn't get the role I could seriously be line to get the role.
In my defense though, she's suppose to be the 'supervisor' so its her responsibility to make sure shits done, not mine. Not my fault shit wasn't done. You know, I just could of not been a dick about it and done something about it not being done. But that wouldn't benefit me in the long run now would it. Or the store for that matter because it would artificially make her look good when it's my work that got shit done.

I don't understand this trying out as a supervisor shit. How did they work that? Did they tell any of you that she is acting as a supervisor and that she had their backing? The last security job I worked wanted to make me a supervisor. Unfortunately the attitude was "act as the supervisor and we will give you the position.". Kind of hard when two of your co-workers hate you and will not listen to what you say. Now, had my employer told everyone that I am acting supervisor and that they must listen to me or pay the price, that would be the way it should work. I was not mean to anyone. If anything I was the most fair. When I caught things, I was willing to teach others how to catch the same thing. I also would teach the cashiers what to look out for, which is why at first they hated me but actually still miss having me around.

Mate, Birdguy wasn't made in 1979.

Brian Blade plays drums on it. He was a kid way back then.

Geez. Smile

I was merely answering a question. Or at least a thought. I know what happens when you reach a certain point. I was simply stating it for the rest of you.
