    i don't know if i'm going to finish my phd, but one of my chapters is on sex jokes in medieval literature and it's an extremely good topic imo

    I love talking about this stuff. The language has changed so a lot of the jokes just fly under our radars but yeah turns out humans being horny [strikethrough]in literature[/strikethrough] sure ain't new :D

    Leadership that decides to make sweeping policy changes with no input from the people who are impacted by said changes is just so goddamn stupid.

    I feel like this isn't limited to hospital staff, but goddamn haven't any of these people read a single book on management? Or hell, a blog post?

    I am in the business of saving lives.

    I had to listen to a head supervisor gripe for the entire 9 hour shift at a supervisor over ordering and using the wrong 2x10s

    This is really frustrating.

    Ok I had a horrible day yesterday as I only had 11 people and was asked to cut people's OT so it screwed me over so I did both the juice isle and my supervisor job but at the end I had to finish chips, the condiment/boxed dinner isle and paper and a few boxes of chemicals all in the span of 90 minutes
    I hate being the army of one
    So I took it out on them at the start of the shift but what ruined it was they called everyone to the lunch room for a meeting basically talking about the remodel we are getting many of the changes coming to the hell known to men {They are turning it into fulfilment centers and pushing online as their formats} how we are getting various drones {to the murmurs of the job apocalypse} and the changes to the attendance policy and other things


    But they had the gall to tell me because of the meeting I had to basically double time it to make up for the 45 minutes they used then sent me home for 4 hours because of OT
    I just came home screamed into a pillow and talked with my brother about dinner

    Even more
    I really have no idea what my job is anymore because I was under the impression of I had to do the consumables areas {grocery -pharmacy/otc-various Health and beauty items-cosmetics and pets but work with what I have as no matter what the acceptable minimum was just Grocery [My manager is really messing up the staffing schedule there are days I have 18 people others I am lucky to have 10} Just what is going on with the new anti overtime litany being there is NONE under any case I had to finish 3 isles pull what was left of the backroom and put away the rolling belt by myself it took me 2? hours I just gave up and went home at 2am

    When I go back I really am going to find out what it is as I know we cannot have OT and they stress a sales ideal {if we don't have it we cannot sell it if it's not stocked we cannot sell it} So what do we do?

    New person starting today! Yay!

    I assume they're being brought on to help me with my incoming increase in workload.

    I ask my manager what I'm teaching. They surprise me by saying that the 2IC will actually be doing training.

    Huh. I forgot we finally got a capable one of those.

    Get myself ready for another day in tedium...

    Actually, Sarah, we need toy to do training today....

    Had a guy point a banana at us while ordering a coffee, saying “stick ‘em up!” during the midnight shift. He seemed surprised that neither of us found it hilarious.

    Then he wanted to use our phone, but demanded that we could not dial for him (we do that to ensure no long distance calls)

    Then he proceeded to sit and stare at us for an hour.

    What’s worse, is now I have Raffi’s ‘Banana phone’ stuck in my head.

    Heh. We had a lot of snow yesterday. A good 50% of the tech side of the company went "I don't trust SL + snow, I'm remote today".

    SL = Stockholm metro. They go into a panic mode if there's a couple of leaves on the track.

    The metro's running along nicely at least. Everything else is chaos though. Walked past three buses that just gave up on a hill.

    It snowed last night, so I got myself all ready this morning. Got my snow boots on, double-zipped the jacket, scraped all the snow on my car. And then halfway through my drive to the train station I get a call that the office is closed.

    Also I really need some winter tires and soon.

    Man I’m in my new work area by devops and there’s a loud as hell douchebag bitching about how the whole organization is stupid and nothing the senior folks want is ever doable or possible

    It’s been a while since I’ve been around people who make themselves feel better about their fear of failure by loudly douchesplaining that nothing new should ever be attempted anyway

    Absolutely, nothing like networking. Also, people speak up for other good people, as it's better than working with bad people.

    There are some great extreme duty all seasons made now that mean you don't necessarily need separate snows. Look for the mountain/snowflake symbol

    When I worked at the movie theater one of our employees had BO issues. Sweetheart of a guy, but he smelled so bad. When I got promoted the first thing the other managers made me do was talk to him about it because none of them wanted to. One of the other managers was his best friend but no, make the new guy do it.

    Sadly it only got better in fits, we'd talk to him, he'd get better for a month or two.

    Now he is a manager there and some friends that still work there tell me that he tends to leave a...residue on things he touches.

    i asked a coworker if there was a polite way to deal with someone who has bad BO, and he apparently immediately knew who i was talking about, which is a bad sign

    can i just uh tell HR and make them deal with it
