I hate that he and the girlfriend didn't get it. Back to looking. Undecided

That's a shame, something better will turn up soon. Thumbsup

RE: Small things that make you frown
I have to bring proof of a vaccination for my college dorm, and good fuck, I hate seeing that "Except for religious and personal exemptions" thing on there.

I don't get why people are so stupid. These things are so important there's a law mandating them, but you can get out of it just cause, eh, ya feel like it. On what planet does that make sense?

It's like reading a book on driving and coming to the sentence, "All cars must stop at stoplights, unless you really feel you don't have to."

Popcorn I put more thought into fiction than theists put into reality.

RE: Small things that make you frown
I'm on vacation at present and got a text from my boss yesterday that I'm being moved out of my current cubicle and into a new one. I'd known this could happen, but it was just a possibility that my boss had posed to me before I went on vacay. But then someone got hired unexpectedly (to replace a girl we'd lost) and so I had to be moved even though I was out.

A little sad. I am losing my window spot. Sad Came up here to work today on a Saturday to try and move a few things myself (boss had said they would move everything on Monday) and lo and behold, boss was here already and they'd gone ahead and moved my stuff already. Feeling a bit violated, somehow. Undecided But am trying to see the positives.

Wait... Why do you need to move fore the new-hire?

Can't they just take the place of the of the person they are replacing?

It's kind of a complicated answer. Undecided Not too long ago, we had a girl get fired, and after that happened, they needed someone to fill in for the specific type of work she did. I'd been being trained for that kind of work anyway, just as a cross-training type thing. And so, when this girl got fired, it was posed to me that I be the one to basically take on her job duties. Instead of mainly processing new apps that come in ("coding" them is what we call it) I would be working on the step that comes before that (called the "upfront" process).

So really, because I was moved to a new type of work, the new person will (in a manner of speaking) be replacing me. She'll be replacing the type of worker I was, since I essentially replaced the girl we lost. And people who do "upfront" work all sit together in the same large-ish cubicle, so they just moved me over here.

New person will sit by a team leader who can train her. Person who used to sit by *that* team leader moves into my old spot. And little old me moves into the "upfront" section of the New Business Department.

It's a big fuckin' game of musical chairs. Hobo

That sounds like a needlessly complicated system...

That's crappy. No

When I got moved to a new spot the desk was reversed. I spent about three months reaching for things on the wrong side. And I lost my window spot too.

I wouldn't be very happy that they moved my stuff without me there. But, they probably think they were helping and being efficient when your little cube of space was sort of violated.

RE: Small things that make you frown
My freaking shipboard info systems professor won't answer any emails. He said he would respond when we turn things in by email to confirm he got them. I turn something in, he doesn't say anything. So I email to ask if he got it and he hasn't responded. WTF.
