    Shit. The guy with the mop top on the left next to the red shirt lady is also peaking out behind the arm of the first dude in the blue shirt on the left. This is turning into a true horror.

    Fuck. Blond doctor is also business hi5 lady. This is the worst photoshop ever.

    Or

    THEY'RE BUILDING PEOPLE

    I'm terrible.

    I'm a terrible human being.

    I made a joke at work. I handed my co-worker a box with two chickens in it
    and asked him to hold this cock and pullet

    I'm sure there is a special level of hell for me and I'm going there.

    I have to fill out this form detailing 'specific objectives' and 'agreed measures and timing'. That by itself would be fine, but the examples of what they want us to fill in are just *seriously* pissing me off.
    Demonstrate my impact in leading others by role modeling and championing the BlahBlah Five Key Leadership Skills while creating a culture of appreciation.

    It's like a dictionary of 1st year marketing terms threw up in a spreadsheet, and they want me to copy that style. I never realized I could be this angry at a spreadsheet before.

    I don't think that I've ever been mad at a spreadsheet. Irked, annoyed, confused, bemused, sure. But angry? Compared to programming, spreadsheets are a soothing and relaxing diversion. Plus, I get to make graphs and charts and conditional formating to make things look pretty.

    Is there some kind of policy where you work about not killing an animal in that condition?

    'Cause tbh letting it live with those injuries is cruel.

    That's when you say "Oh yeah I've been doing that, totally" then provide a bullshit anecdote and then your idiot management eats it up.

    Hmmm, staff meeting tomorrow where all the temps in my department are attending along with our department head and the liaisons from the temp agency. Scuttlebutt says this will be a Come To Jesus meeting for everyone slacking on work and watching Netflix all day. There's also been some dress code issues.

    I'm not terribly concerned about my job, I know my boss appreciates how hard I work; I'm just worried that I'll have certain freedoms and privileges taken away, like being able to listen to my music or a podcast, thanks to other people fucking it up for everyone else.

    One of my Facebook friends is plastering photos of her newborn daughter on there right now.

    Kid is named Harley Quinn.

    Kevin Smith's daughter is named Harley Quinn Smith. I kind of dig the name, the only issue I'd have would be concern that people would think I named my kid after the motorcycle. But I named my son after Luke Skywalker, so who am I to judge?

    My opinion of the name depends on which one were talking about. Are we talking about that shitty new redesign of Harley Quinn or are we talking the animated series Harley Quinn? Can we just name her Harley Quinn TheOneFromTheAnimatedSeries Smith to avoid confusion?

    even a lot of times when I have something to do I'm barely doing anything

    "ok (such and such) pressure is dropping. it will reach target pressure in... 6.... hours...."

    I basically just have to make sure nothing fucks up. If stuff fucks up, then there can be lots to do.

    It sucks when stuff fucks up

    I get a lot of emails. Like...a fuck ton of them.

    Right now my inbox is currently sitting at 3,401 unread.

    That said, I'm often quick to dismiss the pile of spam that makes it through the filters because I don't have time for that shit. In that pile of emails area often things that are supposed to go to the other Steve (our CIO) that works here. I was here first so I don't have the first letter of last name on my email..it's just my name. Most of that stuff I just forward on over and call it good.

    So, today I get an email from a name I recognize as something that I've already mentally ID'd as spam and have even responded to with "are you looking for the other steve?" "unsubscribe" "remove from list" "stop emailing me"....nothing stems the tide. And, as I'm already having a shitty day and it's still early on a Monday I figured that nope...I was done with this shit.

    Thus, I begin sleuthing and manage to score the name, company and phone number of the person that has been bombing my box for the last few weeks...and I call them. I mentioned I'm having a bad day, yea? Well, I heap just about every piece of pent up bullshit into what can already be an overly forceful voice and give this person both barrels of bile.

    By the time I'm done they are a mewling pool of apologies and me? I'm feeling a little better, if not in need of a nap and some more tea.

    Oh...an IM. hm.

    Other Steve: "Uh, does the name <REDACTED> mean anything to you?"
    me: "It used to be a person and now it's a spammy smear on my day.....wait...don't tell me...."
    "Yea, they're a vendor we use."
    "...oh fuck."
    "Riiiiiight, so I'm just going to apologize to them on your behalf and would you like to send over a gift basket?"
    "That sounds like a rather nice gesture, let's do that."

    Thankfully he dropped by laughing so hard there were tears in his eyes, but....uh...whoops.
