    Thanks, folks.

    Don't feel so bad now about the blood spraying. NOW I feel bad about failing at a heel draw on a three day old infant. But seriously, would it be that expensive to just put the kid under some lights in case of jaundice instead of making someone who's done a whole two heel draws (one of which was in training, one of which failed miserably) try to get blood out of a baby's foot?

    Note: if you ever need the blood of a child for some reason, please make sure the child is at least six months old.

    What's the process for doing a full blood transfusion on a premature baby? Cause that's what happened to me!

    So the random message on LinkedIn that lead to a phone interview lead to a Skype interview and now I have an interview at the actual office.

    I am now made more nervous because the third stage is the last stage of most boss fights. The interview is probably going to change patterns or the floor falls out or something. Either way, I'm jumping on someones head. It'll show I'm a go-getter.

    Heck if I know. All my training and experience is for getting blood out, not putting it back in.

    A new born baby's skin is still porous, you can just leave them sitting in a bucket of blood and they'll soak up what they need.

    I've been taking a little break since leaving that last job. I realized today that I'm still on their advertising mailing list. I was the person who did all the proofreading, spellchecking, etc.

    I opened up the latest one and it's riddled with spelling mistakes, bad formatting and links that don't lead to the proper page. Good luck guys!

    And now that I've enjoyed a few weeks off, I should start looking for work seriously again. Can anyone recommend a good webpage/guide for resumes? I haven't had to worry about one in...a while...

    I know the conversation has moved on but I have to say, I was an absolute nightmare when I had to get shots when I was a kid. Like, my mother had to sit on me and convince the nurse to kneel on my arm. She started bribing me after I bucked her off though.

    1. stay with your wife while she dog sits. this wins husband points since she knows its out of your comfort zone
    2. have sex all over her friends house so that the next time you see her friend look at you condescendingly, you can wink back knowing you did the freaky deaky where she eats her cheerios.

    It's so nice out. The sun is shining. It's 60 degrees. Very little humidity.

    Welp, time to sit in a stuffy office with no windows for the next 8 - 9 hours.

    Do you work in some kind of special environment that prohibits windows? Because otherwise that sounds like a health and safety thing.

    Came into work to find out all the bathrooms in the building are broken.

    ... Is it bad to kind of hope they shut down the office today as a result, because I'm not really sure how people are gonna function if they can't use the restroom.

    There's no hard and fast OSHA regulation for how long you can make people work when the restrooms are out of order, but you can't make people work all day without access to a toilet. In general, unless you can get to a toilet within ten minutes and have unrestricted access to said toilet, your office is getting into dangerous territory if they stay open for more than two hours.

    If you can get to a Walmart or something within ten minutes, they have to let you drive to Walmart basically whenever you would ordinarily be allowed to take a bathroom break. If there are no public toilets within driving distance, they should really close the office to avoid an OSHA complaint.

    I'm pretty sure there aren't any, either. The separate building from us may have a working bathroom but they're a super high-security investment firm so I don't think those count?

    My office used to be an edit suite. Most of our edit suites don't have windows. The ones that do have blackout curtains that are shut 99% of the time anyway.

    Dang, they're not closing the office. I guess a building in the same parking lot as us is letting us use the bathroom. Boo, I say. Boo!

    so like, would it be wrong to use divorce stuff as an excuse to miss work for an out of state interview...

    It's too soon since my last interview in california to ask for more vacation time, especially considering I've had over a week of hurri-cation already. So far it's the best, semi-truth that I can come up with. I think pretending to be sick might be beyond my acting capabilities. Also, I'll have to leave early on that Thursday to make my flight. I think I'm going to shift my schedule up by an hour or so to accommodate my planned absence as well as be aligned with an east coast interview.

    Would really be nice if I had more local jobs that I was interested in. Flying to opposite coasts is very tricky. It typically costs me two full workdays, which starts to look fishy after a bit. Also, this will put me at like 2 days of vacation time left.

    Tell them that you're volunteering to extract my stupid cats so they don't starve to death when the apartment manager runs out of cat food. Once I actually drive down there and fetch them, I will provide adorable corroborating evidence.

    It's sad that this is a comparable benefit, but apparently a bonus of being in a job where I have to examine pee all day is that keeping the bathrooms working, maintained, and numerous is a high priority. Thanks, people with UTIs.

    If you actually need this, let me know. PM me the deets and I'll run a bag of catfood out, assuming that your part of town is safe to drive in. I think Houston is pretty much back to normal, at least to the beltway. Past that, I-10 west gets iffy.

    This interview is on the 15th though, so a cat food run 2 weeks after Harvey will not actually work as an excuse. Maybe I'll just no-show and deal with getting bitched at. I dunno.

    I dunno if divorce shit counts, but it's a definite no-no to use fake medical stuff to deceptively get time off.

    My old work place had the water main break so they sent everybody home on day 1.

    Day 2 they had porta potties and two cases of bottled water to greet people on the way in.

    Thanks, but I'm making an Epic Journey from OKC to Houston and back on Sunday. My current plan is to go down there with a couple of five-gallon gas cans in case Denton is as screwed as Dallas, gas-wise. If not, I'll leave them with Mrs. Jedoc's apartment manager to parcel out to any tenants who need to get somewhere.

    Hit me up if you need some pictures of bedraggled refugee cats in two weeks, though. Happy to help. Otherwise, good luck with the interview.
