    In the morning zoom meeting, the employee who is being let go for refusing to get the vaccine says “I just want to thank everyone for standing by me and supporting my personal and private decisions”

    And we all just kind of looked at each other awkwardly,

    I would not have been able to resist shouting “fuck you” at the top of my lungs.

    Continuing the farce, once I had secured access to my own house I went next door to my parents to check on their cat, and then couldn't get back into my house even with my key because it doesn't work right in the lock, never has. So I had to re-break-in through the cardboard covered window, with my house key in my pocket.

    I think, and this just may be me over reacting here, that you might need some new locks and the keys to go with those locks.

    Just put one of these on your new entryway.

    It was the usual bs of work and I had to stay late to do frozen bread till they took away the equipment from me
    But during lunch the nurgle cult was talking about the C19 Experiment? I don't want to look it up knowing it's probably crazy people stuff

    Huh. Our CTO just asked an interesting question that I don't know the answer to, but others might have thoughts...

    We did a pretty successful Varsity eSports event recently.. but the stands were empty. Most of the viewers were on Twitch.

    He's asking.. what can we do to help fill in the stands?

    Get rid of the stands and by transitive property the problem of filling them is resolved

    Dude, you know I love you and am rooting for you... and we all know how bad your management is..

    But if you need to be physically stopped from doing your job because you are doing it too much... that's a REALLY big sign that things are out of whack.

    And this is coming from someone who has literally had his account access frozen to force him to not actually work or check work while on vacation. (I'm doing better lately.)

    Boss messages me asking if I have some time, I say sure so he throws up the zoom link and I join. First thought: oh I did something wrong and he wants to tell me over a meeting to soften the blow.

    I get on the call and he tells me he's giving me a recognition bonus. And yes by bonus I mean cash money. Not a whole lot but any cash in recognition is a far cry from literally any other job I've held! Are you sure you don't got the wrong person here boss man I'm pretty sure I suck??

    Honestly you probably deserve it based on your evangelism in this thread alone. Like, if someone ever asks me if they should Splunk I'm gonna say yes based purely on your posts in this thread.

    I kinda wish I knew your real name so I could sing your praises to our Splunk people and help increase that recognition. You've helped more than you realize. :)

    I have never once been asked my faith in the workplace.

    My old office mate and I tended to get into all sorts of conversations you aren't supposed to ask in the office, so I think at one point or another I'd asked most of my coworkers, but more so I could make sure I wasn't just putting them on blast without realizing it.

    Hey congrats!

    A similar thing happened to me very recently where my boss invited me to a Friday meeting with no discernible agenda. I joined the meeting to see that the head of HR was also there so of course I figured I was getting laid off or something. Turns out they were telling me I was selected for manager of the quarter. I'm still pretty sure they got the wrong guy.

    Huh...

    My anxiety spikes about that get smaller as I get older! My first thought that he was just going to tell me I did something wrong wasn't even really that bad because I figured it was a small thing that I can correct and I not only don't mind being told about correctable things, I prefer managers who are upfront about what they want to fix instead of festering with resentment. He also didn't make me wait to get into a meeting, we joined 1 min after I knew he wanted to talk. So none of this "let's schedule a meeting for Monday" bullshit that would have sent me into a panic.

    The only time in my nearly 15 yr professional career I was summoned to a meeting to be laid off, 1) I definitely wasn't expecting it 2) it had nothing to do with my performance anyway, and fear of performing badly is where most of my anxiety lay. So "you're being let go for no reason" didn't really bother me as much as I expected it to.

    Interview went well, I think? That is, it didn't go badly, so.

    I found myself unexpectedly parked in and was late because of that, but I called to let them know and they were understanding.

    Now to overthink everything :confused:

    All week my boss has been bugging me to finally put in for some vacation time, as long as it isn't around Christmas because everyone grabbed that.

    ... because my brain is mush and my focus is shot, I finally did so today.

    I put in to work Thanksgiving days off into a 2 week break, a couple breather days after a major project completion, and then 2 weeks off in the middle of January.

    Aggressive, but hopefully okay, and I won't shoot myself in the foot for my projects.

    Holy shit my coworker is a passive-aggressive jerk. He frequently insults other people in a "playful" tone and he will often just... not talk to me about work stuff if I miss something or forgot something. Instead he will wait for it to be maximally awkward for ideal passive-aggression.

    Today though... I ate a bag of chips as a snack at my desk, and then a minute or two afterwards he started playing a weird video of someone eating chips loudly. This was his way to tell me I was being rude and gross and not closing my mouth when I chew.

    I am gonna report him to HR I think...

    Damn, just got an email that PAX South is effectively dead, not just for this year but like...for good.

    I know a lot of South regulars post in this thread so I figure this is as good a place to mention it as any. A real bummer, but hopefully we can keep doing our own meetup in the future anyway. I only got to go a couple times but I had an absolute blast and I'd hate to lose a chance to meet up with all y'all nerds for good!

    That kind of toxicity festers, especially if they think they have power. Jesus.

    It's your desk and your time, I'm sure other employees have habits some might consider annoying. If it bothers them, put on headphones like the rest of us who are sane in a shared work environment.

    You're doing the right thing. :)

    Edit: Though I should say that at the same time, I know exactly where this behavior comes from. It's a trauma response to growing up in a house where you are punished for stating your needs directly. So coworker, I been there buddy, but you have to grow past that shit.

    (d) This section does not apply to employment of a part-time employee whose total work hours for one employer during a calendar week do not exceed 30 hours.

    a) currently looking at an 8-day stretch from the 11th to the 18th; check
