    Well that guy who was out last week at the beginning of this week with no warning. Fortunately, we did get another hire in and he seems alright so far. And apparently the information I've been getting has been clarified, my own warehouse location, which is mostly a secondary/backup isn't getting folded into the main one, and indeed it isn't getting closed down and moved to Georgia like the other one, essentially because we only ship to Home Depot, I guess?

    I'm still going to start looking around for other jobs. I like this job and all, but I really would like something with more consistent pay, at least. I always feel bad when moving on from a job even if I don't like it. Part of it is I feel like companies will see me as being disloyal and that will reflect badly on me (even though I know this isn't reaaally the case) and the other is I don't want to leave employees behind in a rut (but then, if I gave proper notice I imagine they could find someone to replace me pretty quick)

    Also also, I like getting into a comfortable rut routine and I don't dislike disrupting things for something new that might not work out.

    I'm mostly getting kind of tired of always working from home (I'm more of a social creature than I realized) but today it was a good thing, because I've been lethargic and totally sapped of energy, and just spent most of the day in bed rolling back and forth. Which like, I would have had no problem calling in "sick" for that kind of thing, but it's a nice feeling knowing I can just do it and ain't have to explain it to nobody.

    Along with moving terms between sides without any rhyme or reason. After the second time they did that I stopped bothering to check for the inevitable error because it's guaranteed they're going to fuck something up doing that.

    My department manager was offering candy to the team today and she walked up while I was goofing off on my phone and didn't seem to care. I felt kind of bad though because I had literally just bought some flavor blasted pizza gold fish crackers so I declined the candy offer.

    It's pouring down with rain. My office is in the loft and I'm already sleepy listening to the steady patter on the roof and skylights and the heating has only just switched off so it's nice and toasty warm.

    I want nothing more than to curl up on the sofa across the room with the dog but I've got so much to do since the company was bought out that it's scary.

    Why won't someone just pay me to nap?

    I went running on Wednesday and then did gardening yesterday and my legs are ruined today. Walking down stairs is a miserable experience. I had to crouch down to reach something at work this morning and nearly yelled out loud in pain. Someone help.

    I missed 6 days of work so far this month battling some mystery bug. I really like my job. Finally, had to call some friends for help getting to a doctor, because man-moding it was not working. I had a 103°F fever when checked at the clinic. Luckily the meds the doctor prescribed really help with most of the symptoms. And it is a long weekend here. So I have more time to recover.

    Always feel awkward coming back after something like that. "Sorry, my weak flesh body broke down".

    Recently, my owner has been hiring people on work visas from Asia. I can kind of see why, since they are hard workers, friendly, and the owner gets a government handout for doing so.

    But for some reason, when people (who've I've never met before) find out where I work, seem to ask the same question over and over "Don't you hate working with those <insert slur word>?". WHY WOULD YOU SAY THAT TO SOMEONE YOU BARELY KNOW?

    And the casual racism of my co-workers is astounding. We have two lovely ladies who have similar sounding names, causing one of my oldtimers (Let's call her 'Sherry') to say "They must be related, they have the same sounding name and are the same ethnicity"

    She didn't like it when I called her out on how stupid it sounded, and when I asked her if "Mary", a coworker she detests, is related to her since their names sound similar and they're both white.

    Knife fights were last thread but back in the Corps I had a buddy who while on deployment had to get medivaced due to knife wounds. He got a lot of free beers out of that story, although he conveniently left out the minor fact that said knife wound was received while playing with his knife like a dumbass while sitting on the shitter.
