    You'd think, of all the people, that a doctor would understand this.

    You'd be amazed at how many doctors out there a) have a weak grasp on business and b) think their degree means that they actually do.

    Running the internals of the business is easy most of the time too, it's the externals that are tricky (getting customers and getting paid).

    So yesterday while subbing at the middle-school I got asked if I would like to sub again today. I'll cover a 7th grade language arts class for 1st & 7th period. The rest of the day will be spent with the entire 7th grade class at the Washington State History Museum.

    And if every parental chaperone shows up then I get to simply walk around the museum for thee hours.

    Come on, come on...

    So I went on this yesterday and it was very enjoyable.

    I ended having a group of students (ugh) but they were four girls who were very on task the whole time (yay) so I didn't have to do a lot during the field trip.

    But before the day even began I had a few students ask me if I was a full-time teacher at their middle school because they see me there so often now, which was nice to hear. And then the principal pulled me aside and told me if it was up to him he'd have me at his school every day for the whole school year, so double awesome on that.

    But the best moment of the day was during the field trip. The newest exhibit in the Washington State History Museum is on our state's beer, wine & coffee. So eventually my group made their way to it and they had glasses of beer & wine out around the area. So I walk up to a glass of wine and physically inspect it to, naturally, find that it is a physical prop made wholly of plastic.

    I pull my head up from the prop glass of wine to see a student looking at me.

    Student: Oh man Mr. C, you looked real disappointed that wine glass wasn't real.
    Me: ...Get walking.

    Nominally we have core hours of 10 to 3 where we absolutely need to be there and can just arrange our 8 hour days (+ at least a half hour lunch break as required by law) around that. I do have colleagues in my group who come at 10 and others who leave at 3.

    My personal work time is a bit difficult, some days I work only 6-7 hours and some days 9. We don't have a clock in mechanism and nobody cares about the actual time we are there. As far as I'm aware nobody abuses it. My boss is also good about letting people just come later/ leave earlier if they have an appointment for basically anything. I have an excel sheet where I keep my hours, but I started it so as not to work too much, and not the other way around.

    When I was a queue rep for our tiny department we were hourly and punched in on an online time-clock. It really depended on who we reported to as to how picky they were about it - my current team leader wasn't very particular about it and didn't like to micromanage to it as long as you got your hours. Now all of us are salaried, even the queue, so unless for some reason one of our little sub-groups were unmanned and someone noticed I don't think they really pay attention to it as long as our work is done.

    We were recently told the four of us that can work from home should be mindful of doing it too much and that the preference is always that we're here when possible. During my 1x1 today it was suggested that was a blanket statement and that it didn't necessarily apply to everyone the same (in other words, I'm cool to continue to do it when I need).

    Also, it sounds like my dream of just managing billing and behind the scenes stuff and getting out of the customer side of things might be coming true. I do like my current assigned large fleets but I can't help but get excited about the possibility - and as a bonus I got to push strongly for my long time partner in crime who is still working the queue to be the one to take my customers. I was also told I manage the lion's share of the department work and that my team leader leans on me more than others which was nice to hear.

    My group does thought work mostly, so as long as they're doing their job, I really don't care what hours they work. If they started only working 1-9 AM I'd probably have to talk to them, as that's not conducive to meetings, but given offshore teams we work with, that could also work. Many make the mistake of more hours = more productivity, which is only true of production-based jobs where output is directly related to the hours worked. Design and research is often different and overworking people will lead to people working slower (as they'll be held in the seat the full day regardless) or burning out.

    while we were ice skating(which I am a natural at despite it being my first time) there was another school group there from a few grades younger so a bunch of the kids' mothers were at the ice rink too because I guess parents still go on field trips at that age. so being one of only two adult men skating a 10 year old girl skated up next to me and asked me whose father I was. but she was nice enough and also steady enough to keep me from falling down despite me being twice her size

    We had a new planner join just after Christmas, we don't overlap our work at all, he's lovely but very quiet/shy. We are slowly getting to know him better.

    I know he has a cat because before he started I googled him, his facebook settings are low, he posts pictures of his adorable fluffy white cat which is wearing a snapchat flower crown with sparkly effects, while said crowned cat is sat in his lap.

    I am looking forward to the day my coworker knows feels comfortable enough to show us the goods, the goods being his amazing photos of his cat.

    I'll let him get there on his own though.

    Oh hey, apparently on a call with a customer yesterday they talked about machining some samples to address an issue with a part we make. My boss had said something like "I have a fixture I might be able to use to hold it so we might be able to work up five samples for you." I've confirmed this with him and our Production scheduling guy, both on the call. I was told "They're thinking of machining this, start thinking about how to do it." So I do, in an idle kind of way and the stuff I would need to order to do it right.

    Our Sales guy apparently translated the call to mean "We will send you samples tomorrow (now today) and be ready for full production on Saturday (now tomorrow)" and told the customer that.

    Guess who never got told anything like that until irate sales guy calls at 3 pm?

    Guess who is pretty much entirely responsible for making it happen?

    Fucking Sales.

    You would think a very important document that is required in order to officially transfer to another institution would be of high priority to people who only need to sign once. Clearly not because it's still only step above the person I gave it to over 2 weeks ago.

    Also my duties continue to be divested from me. Not because I'm leaving, but because the boss's boss really enjoys randomly assigning or removing work a position is or isn't allowed to do. But hey, I dont need to do the mail run anymore at least.

    It's an Masters of Secondary Education in School Libraries.

    The school version of an MLIS. This is just a required class that all ed grad students take.

    I was getting an MLIS but switched to the school version as it was more directly relevant. All the classes just carried right over with almost no differences.

    So I was having a pretty great day already - pretty much the best 1 on 1 meeting I could hope for, feeling pretty good. Five minutes before leaving work I got an email from one of my vendors that they'd like to do a roundtable with me and one of my biggest fleets and my boss agreed I should travel to do it.

    I should preface this by saying I live in Maine and my town has had well over 30" of snow in the past two weeks. I can't see to pull out of my driveway and have lost power multiple times. In a few weeks, right after Pax East, I'll now be going to Charleston, South Carolina, where it looks to be averaging in the 70s. I'm slightly excited.

    That was a genuine request to see a decorative glass vessel containing soil and plants!
    if you know what I mean

    Second Friday in a row the new security guard (to our site) got to take somebody to the ground. Guy was resisting, started pouring wine all over himself and made a grab for the guards gun. Store manager said let him go, SPD was already on the way and picked him up right outside where he also tried to fight the cops. Arresting officer that swung back by later said next time just let the perp eat a bullet if he makes a grab.

    Also asked him about the guy from last Friday and what he was on; he was basically made of meth. Seattle!

    Two weeks before my contract ended with your store, a gentleman told me to go fuck myself when I posted near the exit, observing him after he made an odd loop around the store, not looking at anything, just walking and eventually going to the deli.


    At the end of that work day, he and his buddy return and stand over me as I finish paperwork inside a restaurant next to customer service (closest table), yelling and cursing about their money. The Asian family at the next table were shocked.

    When I went to company offices to handle aspects of my next contract, boss told me he got a call about me being too intense. Over a year at that supermarket and a call comes with one week left.

    He offered to take me out of it then and there but I said duck it and finished the last week, give me my money.
