    It sounds like new owner is the one who is being hoodwinked.

    Probably that and putting Anon on the line in front of the new owner for not doing due diligence and they'll be long gone, no givsies backsies.

    What I don't get (and I'm probably being dumb here) is like - why show Anon now? Wouldn't it make more sense to hide it until Anon agrees?

    I still agree with Bowen, it just feels like a dumb way to go about it.

    like who would be shown that and then go "yep, no, this looks terribad, let's do it anyway"

    So nothings been "revealed", it's just me connecting the dots. I was directed to empty the shelves and limit the POs, lower the inventory. The goal "was" to zero out, as the season ended, and build up a more structured inventory in the off season. The business is not situated to fill orders, without experienced hands doing the most efficient work possible. We cut production staff, and didn't hire, to create shop specialists and pay them accordingly.

    Like, he tells New Owner, "oh, it only takes 3-4 weeks to get these parts ready." He neglects to mention that's with an on staff metal worker who needs no oversight and has welded ten thousand of these parts previously. A new welder is not going to be able to bang out 10 parts an hour. He's going to probably do 4. So now it's 5-6 weeks, and that's with all the subs having availability. Plus we have none of the constituent steel on the shelf.

    In the last six months, stainless steel has gained nearly 50%. The list goes on and on.

    Today I had a bit of a heated discussion with Old Owner about this, and he kept trying to say we're set for success and there's nothing to worry about, but offered no evidence. He offered no defense when I flat out said: "You've emptied the shelves and taken all the liquid. We have nearly, if not, six figures of resources to buy for next year alone! How is that success?"

    At one point he said: "Well, you abandoned me last year to move out east with your wife." Which was when it all went white for a moment, and I told him I was getting too emotional, and he needed to leave while I finished my work.

    I apologize for the drama work thread. It all just seems so silly. Plus there's the massive emotional betrayal, that stings.

    Solution: Don't live in a city so crowded it requires a subway. Too many people.

    Alternative solution: Live in Japan. The number of men I saw with long wallets sticking out of their back pocket, or women with purses tucked under their army, behind them with a wallet sticking out of the purse, with 100% confidence that nothing would be stolen boggled my American mind.

    It's like when my poor Japanese teaching co-worker got her wallet stolen in Japan, I asked out it happened. "Well I was at Starbucks and I left my wallet on the table to mark that it was occupied while I went to the restroom and when I came back it was GONE!" Said with genuine shock and surprise at this outcome.

    I am too big to live in Japan. I'd take up the space of two regular sized Japanese people on those trains that they pack into like sardines, and then I'd feel bad.

    It's okay, no one will want to sit next to you on public transport anyway because you look different.
    :(

    Awww, I never noticed anything like this outside of really old ladies.

    Honestly while I was originally one of those people gungho to someday visit Japan, the knowledge of how pervasive its xenophobia is overrode all of that original desire.

    I’m sure it’s there, but also I’ve never been treated better anywhere on earth. If they just call me a stupid foreigner behind my back I’m cool with it.
    On top of that, it’s a pretty ungenerous take on a nation full of people.

    I will say that the Japanese stereotype of compartmentalizing different aspects of life and keeping them very separate definitely happens (内は内、外は外), but if you meet some people that let you move past “acquaintance/co-worker”, you’ve got a friend for life. There’s a lot of ignorance about the outside world in Japan, but I wouldn’t classify it as xenophobia.

    So work is moving the office 45 minutes away on top of my already 1 hour+ commute so that's really put me in the dumps something fierce. I like this gig but I can't be out of the house for 13-14 hours a day.

    As I talked about it on the 91 page
    I am a support at the hell I work at in all but name.
    Today I noticed they removed the paper near the time clock about that job.
    I got the letter way offering it to me back in the 22st of June . But I have not had the interview or any word of the offer either I got it which sucks or didn't which sucks as I get to watch yet another person burn out in a few weeks.

    Today marks my first payday since I finished working. I couldn't remember if I got paid in arrears or not so wasn't sure whether I'd get one last paycheque today. Turns out nope. Sad times.

    They took everything down for maintenance and didn't tell anyone. Their installing new hardware so it will be down for ??? hours.

    I would have brought my SNES classic or something if I knew it was going to be dead like this

    It almost hit 30 °C in the office today and I am not equipped to handle these kinds of temperatures. I'm big and Scandinavian, we don't do "summer".

    Luckily this is very much the off-season, so everyone kinda just left. Now I can be sweaty at home at least.

    My commute's 43 minutes, door-to-door, 17 of which are on a train, the rest on foot. Housing in the same neighborhood as work is available, but I had to move this far out to find a neighborhood that's quiet at night and within walking distance of the subway. (Remarkably difficult due to a lack of zoning laws, no taboo on public drunkeness, and a complete refusal by the police to enforce practically any law.)

    I figure this neighborhood still has another year or two before it gets rowdy, and then we'll move again if needs be. Have my eyes on a smaller city, but it'd be like a 30 percent decrease in pay, and an actual increase in cost-of-living.

    10-15 minute bus commute.

    I'd rather work two hours for free than be stuck in traffic for two hours commuting. Blergh.

    55ish minutes on the way home as I catch a train.


    Catching the Northen Line at 5pm is hell. I'd rather have a longer commute home and get an actual seat

    ~2 hour commute. Just over an hour of buses, and about 40min of walking. If I could afford a car, it'd get knocked down to 35-40min.

    All for about 13.5 miles.

    There are absolutely going to be some job losses it looks like

    And the axe has fallen. One person from every other team I work with is losing someone. It appears my team is safe and I have a sneaking suspicion that's because someone is already leaving. Would explain why we were told <Insert name here> isn't getting backfilled.

    The best part of my day is the 7 hour work-day. I have an actual 9-5, with an hour paid lunch.

    Sounds like my old commute into Manhattan. Less than 15 miles distance. Over 2 hours on a weekday morning via bus and subway. Ugh.

    Ah, it stinks, it sucks, it's anthropologically unjust

    Same here. I was working for a consulting firm and looking at getting paid for 8 hour days (40 hour weeks) but actually expected to be working 10+ hour days... Took the jump to a place that only has 7 hour days, plus overtime if you need to work more. Best choice I have ever made even if the overall paycheque is less now (but it is more $ per hour even just comparing to the 8 hour days).

    Work life balance is an actual thing! Who knew?!

    I feel for all of you with 1+ hr commutes each way. I only do 1hr on the highway each way 4 days a week and it is hard to balance personal time, family time, and work.

    Each way? Goddamn. My commute is about 80 miles total, but I don't drive most days.

    Daily commute schedule:

    6:10 - Leave house
    6:30 - Reach parking lot, walk to train station
    6:42 - Reach train station, wait for train.
    6:53 - Get on train
    7:40 - Arrive in Seattle, walk to work
    8:00 - Reach Work

    And then going home:

    4:55 - Leave work.
    5:10 - Reach train station, get on waiting train.
    5:20 - Train leaves.
    6:05 - Arrive in Puyallup, walk to car
    6:20 - Reach car, drive home
    6:50 - 7:00 - Arrive home

    Exciting stuff, I know!

    Eh, I'm used to it now. I tend to listen to lots of podcasts on the drives and walking, and doze on the train up and watch something on the iPad on the train back. It's not too bad.

    I'm not enjoying how fucking warm it's been on the walks, though. Gross.

    Edit: Unless you mean Koro there, which, I agree, that's a LOT of driving every day.
