    I got frustrated during the last 5 minutes of my shift and made a series of judgment calls, ultimately giving the person the benefit of the doubt, and while I’m confident it’s me being paranoid, I hope it doesn’t come back to bite me.

    I have 2 days of class left after a week break. Really I only have to get a portfolio sorted out for my ms office projects I did. So that's a relief.

    I'm not super thrilled about hearing from the job developer person and looking for interviews though. I imagine finding decent enough work will be tough.

    Still I figure at minimum wage at like 16 to 24 hours a week I'll be pretty far ahead of where I am now. So hopefully that doesn't take super long. I wanna dig myself out of debt a bit. Maybe get a better home setup and or think about getting a degree to do something that'll put me in an even better position.

    Today I had a late lunch with a buddy of mine to discuss us working together on some puzzle-based camps & escape room-themed camps.

    Later today he'll send me a reference document with all of his equipment & ideas.

    My job? To construct the puzzles themselves & to wrap them up in a mystery narrative.

    I am ready.

    I'm just so nervous about trying to find some job that'll work for me. And then somehow fitting it into my life and not losing my mind. I do like 10 to 12 hours of class a week and it drives me crazy much less working like 12 to 24 then submitting my pay stubs to social security and medicaid every two weeks and keeping track of everthing and keeping it up.

    Also I'm already very bad at budgeting, adding in keeping track of my gross work income on top of my disability and accounting for taxes and stuff is going to be a lot of adjustment for me even though the extra money will probably help dig out of debt a bit. Though I'll have to pay for Medicare premiums (like 150 a month, uhhg) plus Medicaid buy in (maybe?) and probably copays ontop too.

    Well, today was a day. Holiday party was the most boring one I've ever attended, since the setup basically ensured the cliques chatted with each other the entire time as someone had the gall to play a Chipmunk Christmas CD for ambiance so I ended up tapping out of the "party" half an hour in. I brought my rocky road fudge to share, but I'm not sure if anyone ever ate it and the rest seemed to have disappeared by the end of the party, plate and all. But fine, less sugar for me to deal with.

    Then people came back to the office and I was treated to a front row seat of synchronized dick-sucking about "entitled millennial brats" and how people "back then" worked hard for what they got. So I just literally bit my tongue and was thankful I have tomorrow off because every passing day just further reinforces the idea that I am not part of the department and that I hate the people who work here.

    Yay I just got a job offer!

    However I also had an interview this morning that went really well and I might get an offer from them (which I would accept) but it's not definite.

    I don't want to say no to Company #1 since I might not get the second job, but I also don't want to dick them over by saying yes and then ditching them after they have wrapped up their recruitment process. They want a response by the end of the day.

    What should I do?

    End of day? Yikes!

    Just e-mail them back and say that the offer is tempting but you'll need more than a day to consider it. If you have the hiring manager's e-mail, I'd CC them on it too because sometimes HR personnel are absolute shit and the hiring manager doesn't know that games are afoot.

    From other thread:
    Oh it's all so bad.

    Old Owner has been slapping shit together in the shop to build this Frankenstein machine. None of us are happy. No one is confident in what we've built. The men who built it are looking at me saying "This is not good work or design."

    We're slapping band-aids on things as best we can, but some things are too far gone. If we did any kind of AAR it would be a lot of sad words.

    Tomorrow morning New Owner and I have to measure everything and document it all, in about an hour (so I'm coming in earlier). We have to do this because none of the thing matches the very sparse and poorly done drawings.

    @Anon the Felon I can't recall exactly, but the customer specifically asked for old boss design, correct?

    You had one of the employees kind of shadow old boss for tips/tricks on things correct? Did that work out?

    PSN: jfrofl
  • Anon the FelonAnon the Felon In bat country.Registered User regular
    Yeah, the client requested Old Owner design, which we thought was a good idea because no one else had ever worked on this project (myself included).

    I spent a bunch of time with Old Owner, but a lot of those meetings turned to chit chat because Old Owner regularly didn't have answers or seemingly didn't want to talk work. So a lot of meetings ended with me saying "...So you're going to put that on the drawings right?" Which didn't happen. We received drawings three business days before we thought we had to get them into finish, so we burned really hard and made compromises.

    There was no final vision, so we were handcuffed in the changes we could make. There was no drawing of the final steering mechanism, because Old Owner had to make it up in the last 48 hours.

    I did manage to make Old Owner work with Metalworker to teach him tooling tricks and stuff since I'm no help when it comes to the actual welding of a thing.

    There was a meeting where I pointed to a mark on the drawing and said, "We couldn't make this because you provided three different bolt lengths, but didn't mark on the drawing which one or how much throw we needed." His response was "You could use any of them, it doesn't matter."

    About an hour later, Old Owner came to me and said "I need to go to the hardware store and get longer bolts, turns out we need a bit longer." To which I just deadpanned "This has become par for the course. Like I told you before, please just do what needs to get done to ship this. I'll write down everything when it's done, since you wrote down nothing."

    He attempted to throw me under the bus, saying I should have reviewed the drawings more. Which was great, because I had told New Owner just the day before, "He's going to say this is all my fault, but I want to show you the dates we were working with..." At which point New Owner fully understood what had happened. When Old Owner said it was my fault, New Owner put up his hand and interrupted with, "I already have a good idea of who is to blame for what. Including myself for not helping Anon more, let's just get through this."

    Oh, I almost forgot: We were told the entire project had to deliver on 12/14. Then Old Owner went out of town on the 11th, and returned on the 19th. The 21st was our drop dead date. Yesterday we found out that half the project doesn't have to deliver until 1/7. If I had known any of this, and that the 14th meant nothing (I didn't know about the 21st being available until we were too far in), we would have done totally different things.

    It's all just so sad. One of those: I feel like I let my guys down, I let my workplace down, and I let myself down.

    One of the strange marvels of today is the random phone call I got. An iron I put in the fire months ago when I desperately wanted out just got a little hotter. I was directed to a CEO for a regional corp who I was told would be waiting for my call in the new year, he's apparently looking for an ops manager for his logistics arm, which is great because that's what I truly love and have a propensity for.

    So, we'll see what happens. Another iron I'd set down turned to slag recently, so I'm guarded.

    Main boss, a week ago "oh we shouldn't worry about finishing X till the new year, nobody will be looking at things before then anyway"

    Principal investigator on X, today: "I think we should try and get X submitted before Christmas." (No real reason given, I think his anxiety is just acting up)

    Soooo that's my weekend gone, since I refuse to pay an unreasonable amount to access shitty WiFi on the plane and thus lost fourteen productive hours.

    Otoh it means I can go completely to ground between Christmas and New year's without guilt, so, swings and roundabouts

    But says if you don't get it I really would recommend looking to do something else as they don't deserve what you do for them

    I am torn about it though as some of the people I oversee don't want me to get it either as they want the whole thing to come crashing down as they have said they are not saying past 2300 anymore or busting their asses anymore
