    I didn't know there were people who actually use the toilet seat cover.

    Just take some paper towels and dip it into the bowl and wipe down the seat like the rest of us, drez.

    I used to work with a germophobe that kept a pretty tight lid on it but gave away two tells that I know of.

    On one occasion, someone at a table with him accidentally reached out and touched his water glass before figuring out that it wasn't theirs. Just touched the sides. He freaked the fuck out. Like, got red in the face and started stammering and needed to get a new glass.

    On one other occasion, something happened in the office one day that required a rapid response (maybe a fire alarm? I can't remember) and he was forced to leave the bathroom in a hurry. We all knew that when he went in there he took way longer than one would normally expect but, whatever, people poop at different paces. On this day though, the next person in discovered an impossibly intricate nest around the toilet seat, made of literally dozens of seat covers. I don't just mean a stack of seat covers. We're talking carefully woven together and around the seat.

    Guy was a character.

    I’ve been explicitly called out on my OCD and germaphobia by one of my coworker friends and after that I stopped giving a fuck about trying to hide it.

    I’m not that annoying though. It’s mostly like opening a door with my hand in my coat pocket. Or overuse of hand sanitizer.

    So my friend’s attempt to shame me just made it more blatant on my part.

    I feel like this is a really good response to this sort of thing.

    someone wants to fuck with you about your neuro shit? Turn it into an arms race.

    There are very, very few people who are actually, genuinely neurotypical. Just a matter of granularity.

    By the way, I had to perform a lecture on The Middle Ages instead of having the kids learn about the day-to-day world of serfs & such.

    So I just wanted to hit the important points for the 7th graders:

    -- The fall of Rome and all of its flaws. The kids really enjoyed learning about the hedonism of purging as well as Incitatus the horse senator.

    -- The Catholic Church was the most powerful & sinister force around.

    -- Being a peasant sucked.

    -- Eat the rich.

    -- The death of scientists for impiety.

    You know, just the important stuff.

    I finally broke down and told my project manager that he was being too aggressive with a timeline, and that we need to do this right and not corrupt our data rather than rush it out the door. I said this with a couple of our customers/partners in the room. Specifically I said that as the system's admin, I wouldn't let the integration corrupt our primary student information system.

    That left him kind of speechless.

    On one hand I'm worried I've upset him or our customers. On the other I'm glad I finally got to say that out loud.

    The bathroom in our new office is really weird, like they were confused by the fact that it needed to have a shower in it, so it's absolutely huge. The toilet is in the corner but without a stall, so everyone has this paranoia about making sure the door is locked because if someone opens it it's not like you can put your hand up to stop it like in a stall. You're just the guy in the distance sitting on a toilet.

    My question is this

    If one has a designated meal break time, and one does make any effort whatsoever to take one's break (as in, sitting at one's computer playing on one's phone), does the organization still owe it?

    Because if so there's gonna be a real problem here in a bit, because my break comes up right after, and I'm not intending to miss mine. Or to be late going, either.

    One of the perks of my job is the uninfused samples. Delicious free candies and chocolates that I can eat while on the job!

    However, the brownie I just tried was not a brownie. It tasted a little like a healthy carob/date monstrosity masquerading as a brownie. Why the fuck would you not make your brownies taste good?! If it doesn’t taste nice when uninfused, I bet it tastes really nasty when infused.

    On the flip side of that, I work with a guy who will regularly go take a shit while on a phone call.

    But (and this is my favorite part), he doesn't flush. If you wander into the bathroom after one of his teleconference shits and say anything about it, he'll calmly explain that his headset doesn't have a mute button so obviously he can't flush the toilet or the people on the other end will hear, and he's not an animal.

    Is it a single bathroom or multiple stalls? Because I'm thinking pulling up in the stall next to him and unleashing the thunder might produce some results.

    For the last year and few months I have been working effectively two full time positions (two different businesses) ranging between 60-80 hours a week. In an effort to move up in career opportunities and better pay/situation I have been applying to full time, one department, year round positions at the university I been working at close to 8 years now (currently working two part-time-combined-into-full-time, 9-month positions with a temporary part time job during the summer). After applying to nearly a dozen positions over the last year and after making a concerted effort the last couple of months to network with employees within the main IT department on campus I was able to get a couple of phone interviews within the past month. Both phone interviews went well; one position I didn't get and the other position I am waiting to hear back from hopefully by the end of this week.

    This is a pretty condensed summary of where I am at right now but at the risk of rambling and soap-boxing I trimmed out the extra reasoning/motivations/drama/etc.

    To further tl;dr: Trying to job situation better; the struggle is real; I'm really tired.

    At my last library, we had a hat for this specific reason.

    We only had two computers in the back room, and sometimes it was hard to tell if you were using the computer to conduct library business or if you were using the computer because you were on break and you were looking up funny pictures of owls. We also had a glittery sombrero for reasons lost to history.

    So if you were on your break or at lunch, you put on the Leisure Sombrero so that people either knew not to disturb you or knew that they could kick you off the computer if they had actual work to do.

    It is, to this day, one of my proudest accomplishments as a manager.

    Reminds me of one of the men's rooms at work. It's big enough to be multiple occupancy. Except there's the little wall by the door so you can't see people doing their business if the door is open. So seems like sticking a urinal behind there would be convenient.

    Okay, now let's do a stall. It's gotta be handicap accessible so there's a minimum size, and we can't put the door next to the urinal.

    So what we end up with is a bathroom with one urinal squeezed between a wall and a stall, and one enormous stall, like 10 feet long.

    Feeling a little odd about work. About a month ago I was passed up for a Manager position, I am a Team Lead now. Over the summer one of the other Team Leads asked HR a question about our responsibilities. Long story short HR's response was "You're a Team Lead, not a Supervisor." Except there is no supervisor position for our team, we report directly to the manager. It felt really diminishing to hear that response from HR.

    So I bring this up in a meeting with the VP. And she agrees with me. (If you looked at our job responsibilities we would be closer to a Coordinator at other institutions.) So the VP tells me that she is going to talk with our newly-hired director and look into reclassing the job as a Supervisor position.

    One of the other things our team has been pushing for is Full-time positions for the floor team that we run. Working at a museum is great, but people need to eat AND pay rent. And that isn't feasible working part-time making slightly-above minimum wage. VP says full-time may not the huge ask it has been in the past.

    What is making my spider-sense tingle is the thought that right now, our team fluctuates between 30-40 people. With 4 Leads. I do not think that if they reclass our job that they would need/want 4 Supervisors however. I think part of the reasoning of higher-ups is they make two of us Supervisors, and take the Team Lead position and make that the Full Time Facilitator positions. And I think the other two current Team Leads would probably be let go.

    To top it off, I was scheduled for a meeting with our new Director for this coming Friday

    School libraries do look a bit smaller compared to public libraries. Not that I'm excusing the guys statements, but they are surprisingly small. I know this is because a public library has to accommodate the tastes of a much wider range of people on a much wider range of ages, but its still a bit weird when you go into one (for me at least).

    Think of it this way.

    A public library has a YA section. My entire library is a YA section and has way more YA books than a single branch's YA section. (usually)

    Still for the first thing to come out of that dude's mouth to the person who very clearly runs the library, not cool.

    Today, as I was signing up for different classes with my helpful HR liaison, out of nowhere, she launched into this spiel.

    At first I’m a bit lost, but the spiel is sounding very complimentary. “We’ve thrown you into the deep end, and you’ve performed admirably. You’ve rolled with the punches. You’ve accepted every assignment we’ve offered you and made considerable effort to execute them well, even trying to improve what material we’ve given you. Through it all I personally have gotten the feeling that you teach from the heart.”

    I kept waiting for another shoe to drop, expecting not to like it.

    Nope! The other shoe was a salaried office position, adding value outside of regular teaching.

    I’ve been at this job just shy of two months, and they’re offering me much more stable hours, working with the office staff regularly, developing material and programs and doing odd jobs for clients. Comes with actual paid time off and year-end bonuses.

    I feel like I’m being fairly evaluated and my experience is being taken into account for the first time maybe ever in my life and it feels real good, y’all.

    Was the meeting with the director on the books before or after your talk with the VP?

    Sorry if I wasn't clear. I tend to ramble.

    All of these previous discussions have been with the VP. The director started this Monday and they are a layer of management between the VP and I.

    Welp, my old job has about three months to find a supplier for steel or they're out of business.

    I am finding it hard to have much sympathy for the bosses there, as corporate were massive Trump supporters.

    In my last class of the day I had a bunch of really good kids so I just went hog-wild in how horrifically terrible the Dark Ages were for people.

    One girl, near the end of class, screamed at me, "It sounds awful! Awful! AWFUL!!!"

    You're damn right.

    Just remind them that eating the rich is always an option.

    I told a few classes that there was a period during the Dark Ages where you could literally buy your way into heaven, and the students nearly lost their damn minds out of rage.

    Dark ages? That was true until the Reformation.
