I am feeling serious second hand embarrassment for you! Doesn't sound like it will impact your job at all, yeah?

honestly cannot stand this woman--so overpaid and provides little value. the group i am in--that she "leads"--had an off-site retreat (just a glorified meeting) a few weeks back and it was conveniently scheduled to be at her home almost 20 minutes away. that fell through so it was at her new condo not too far.

the agenda said we were all supposed to "be fed spiritually...by the hospitality of working in a retreat setting" except we were sitting on her rooftop patio with no shade all afternoon with no access to a bathroom. we had to go down seven floors to a coffee shop next to her place and when one person went around lunchtime they (she brought her husband out to join the mtg, for some reason) suggested we all try and go since they didn't want to go back and forth letting us all into the building.

my mood definitely suffered for that! not just the bathroom thing, but all of it. i cannot stand (who can?) feeling trapped in the heat plus i was riding the crimson wave

didn't like her before (or after) any of that mess, though. she says craps like "the work is the process and the process is the work" and people find that deep somehow.

That sounds great. I hope she got shredded

teh b0lly!!1 08-19-2022 02:06 AM

Don't get confused, you did good!

yo soy el mejor 08-19-2022 12:17 PM

the consultant sent me an email that i still can't bring myself to read. i had my friend read it and he said it was long and the end said something about this being an opportunity for growth for me. bitch, please. all i am taking from this is never offer to share my screen

my boss and i have a rolling agenda for our weekly meetings and this morning i noticed a new agenda item of "meeting etiquette" but it was later removed by her and she hasn't said a word about the incident. i'm sure when we meet virtually monday morning we'll just look back on this and laugh.....! ;D

thanks, bub!

i really need to hear that cause i'm still cringing a little when i think about it. just saying fuck a lot

ovary 08-19-2022 05:16 PM

i mean you did good but you might get fired. a common workplace situation

Ram27 08-19-2022 10:17 PM

i've been [firmly] invited to this gig next week with my band

i haven't been to a show with them yet [but they go semi-often] and they're super nice about wanting me to come along. but my BRAIN ISN'T NORMAL so i can't process that it's a normal social gathering and no one hates me

and it's a shoegaze band so woo

ahhh

slunken 08-20-2022 12:05 PM

oh no i'm "in a band" and my friends are asking me to hang out oh no

ilikeplanets 08-20-2022 12:53 PM

I have serious concert envy

ilikeplanets 08-20-2022 12:55 PM

There's 2 shows I want to see in November but I'm close to 5 hours away from the venue, so it won't happen

before you ask, i love records the same reason why i love books - i want full control of imagining everything in my head

yo soy el mejor 08-20-2022 08:33 PM

reallly doubt i will get fired because it's a religious place n they believe in redemption plus i only talked about a consultant

this is honestly one of the more clever things i've read on here

yo soy el mejor 08-21-2022 11:31 AM

how so?

ilikeplanets 08-21-2022 02:36 PM

Yeah, it sounds a lot like missing out to me

ilikeplanets 08-21-2022 02:38 PM

What is a good tinypic alternative? I apparently haven't tried to post a picture in ages..

Ram27 08-21-2022 02:54 PM

i guess i think it's an interesting thought exercise to picture a band having never ever seen them. no idea who's playing guitar or what the name of the singer is or anything

like, as a contrast to us being aware that madame zuzu's exists and shit

is it?

i feel like it's a pretty common thing to enjoy a band and not know what they look like. especially older bands...and maybe new ones, too.

Imgur is the image-hosting site I use.

Access it from Firefox so they can't force me to make an account or anything.

ilikeplanets 08-21-2022 08:38 PM

Okay. Every time I try imgur I can't seem to find a way to upload anything, so I'll see if the Firefox trick works. Thanks!

didn't get fired, but i did get written up---she said her hands were tied and they kinda had to move forward when the consultant complained. my boss wasn't upset, but said she was thinking about it all weekend and that she was afraid i would quit lol

i talked about the best way of apologizing/moving forward and she said she was impressed but not surprised by my humility and how i was handling this situation. i decided i should write an apology to the group and consultant separately and call it a day. can't rub my nose in it forever.

ilikeplanets 08-22-2022 01:20 PM

I'm hoping you feel okay with that outcome. Not knowing is usually the worst part. As long as you think your boss will continue to have a good opinion of you, then this seems like the best case scenario, aside from the consultant admitting they're terrible upon reflecting on your comments, of course.

ovary 08-22-2022 01:35 PM

that happened to me once. i'm not typically a confrontational person but this vendor showed up to my work at like 7 in the morning when we opened and started loudly spouting this conservative nonsense and i told him to shut the fuck up and then my boss intervened.

then that afternoon the vendor came all the way back out to my work to apologize to me lmao. i wasn't there luckily

totes. i was anxious leading up to meeting with my boss and turns out she was nervous, too. but, if she's good with me, then i'm good! i kept my two public apologies short and sweet and said even though my comment being visible was not purposeful, nothing makes it right and i regret being a disruption to the meeting. it won't happen again, etc.

sadly, the consultant probably think she needs to talk to me--i'll apologize in person (I offered this), but i sure as shit am not gonna sit around while she sits on her high horse and tells me how to act and what to consider going forward. that's the whole reason i cannot stand her ol' preachy ass.

my boss said this morning the consultant told her last week she did not want to be at any other meeting i would attend (wish i could remember what i said!). i told my boss it was probably a good time to mention my expectations of the group didn't match the reality and i probably should have said something instead of stewing for the last several weeks and misdirecting my frustration. none of our meetings have the same collaborative tone of other work meetings and it's 100% that woman.

all's well that ends well.

Anybody working from home and using a mouse jiggler on their workstation?

yo soy el mejor 08-24-2022 01:45 PM

hands?

mxzombie 08-25-2022 11:21 AM

thank god my employer doesn't monitor my activity that way. i'm expected to log a minimum number of hours each day, but it doesn't necessarily matter when during the day i do that work.

I need one. I finish my quota in like 1-2 days and have the rest of the week to fill, since my contract requires far more hours than it takes me to complete the work.

ilikeplanets 08-25-2022 01:39 PM

Although first I'd need a mouse!

I just ordered one.. from Amazon. And I work for Amazon. Does that mean they know I'll be using it?

You don't need any hardware. Easy to use an autohotkey script. Assuming they don't monitor the programs you're running.

ilikeplanets 08-26-2022 06:47 PM

No, they don't.

reprise85 08-26-2022 06:48 PM

download autohotkey, right click desktop create new script, paste this

Quote:

#NoEnv ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
; #Warn ; Enable warnings to assist with detecting common errors.
SendMode Input ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir% ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.


#SingleInstance Force
CoordMode, Mouse, Screen
Exit

*F1::ToggleMouseMove()

ToggleMouseMove(){
Static toggle := False
delay := 1000
toggle := !toggle
SetTimer, RandomMouseMove, % (toggle ? delay : "Off")
Return
}

RandomMouseMove(){
x := Rand(0, A_ScreenWidth)
y := Rand(0, A_ScreenHeight)
spd := Rand(1, 10)
MouseMove, % x, % y, % spd
Return
}

Rand(min, max){
Random, rand, % min, % max
Return rand
}
run it

F1 toggles it on/off

it will be in your system tray and you can right click to close it.

windows only but I'm 100% sure you can find a compiled program for whatever OS. btw i stole this from reddit and didn't make it myself

can also change F1 to some other key if you want pretty easily

ilikeplanets 08-26-2022 09:48 PM

What would I be using besides Windows, that's complicated enough. This sounds perfect because I literally sit there with my queue open and just click to keep it active since I (accurately) speed through all my work on the first day or two of the assignment. Regretfully that usually happens at 4 AM. So if I can do less then I fucking will.

yo soy el mejor 08-27-2022 12:21 PM

y'all so bad
