The worst aspect of my workplace is that it's necessary.

That's how I feel about my volunteer gig. I love doing it. I hate that we have to.

Food, clothing, shelter and medicine should be free but I won't talk further about that and I would encourage others not to poke the line there.

I just had a talk w/ my boss of only five days and told him today is my last day. I feel kind of bad about it but I'm just temping so it's not a huge deal. Anyways I'm still looking forward to my traditional "parking lot moment" later today, which is something I do every time I quit a job.

Walk out of the building, lean against ur car and just look around. Those trees waving in the breeze? Those are urs 2 climb now, at ur leisure, anytime, any day, because u r free now. Those birbs flying overhead? They are ur brethren now.

U told the man 2 shove it and now ur footloose and fancy free. There's nothing I love more in life than quitting a job.

I have 3 nights left at this gig, I'm supernumerary for all 3, which is maybe just as well because I'm officially checked out. Filling the next 36 hours of work time without causing or getting in poo poo or dying of boredom is going to be agony. I guess I could read policy manuals to be productive. :suicide:

Kinda sounds like you're the man now, and your job is quitting jobs. You need to take this to the next level by quitting the job of quitting, thereby sticking it to yourself.

(PS congratulations)

Oh I slack off harder than ANYONE already I guarantee you. I play dozens of games of MTG Arena and watch about 5 hours of podcasts on the daily. This is the only reason I haven't quit this job. I get paid a LOT to do relatively little, but MAN I'm getting sick of this horseshit.

Today I was summoned in to work in order to clean out a storage room we're being forced to move into.

I'm throwing away about $15,000 worth of art supplies because they were abandoned by the art department. We're not allowed to give them to, like, local schools or anything, because of state and federal fraud oversight.

This is just killing me.

loving art department, come get your poo poo! Don't make me do this!

xcheopis


Our director had another health scare (sort of - exhaustion, basically) and is now being very firm about work-life balance THANK GOD. Everyone has been very worried about the number of hours they've been working for over a year and the need to just back away a bit. Spend time with partner and small child. Ignore us bozos; we'll still be here and if it's truly an emergency, then we'll let you know!

Probably still working a stupid number of hours from home but at least that's at home! And stop answering emails at 3:00 am.

This is great to read.

My team actually unironically yells at each other if we catch somebody working off hours or during vacation. It's an aspect of the team culture I'm really proud of having instituted.

But how will they be able to micromanage to the quantum level every single aspect of their department, and even other departments? That's what directors do right?

They're turning my office building into open floorplan hell.

Somehow I get to keep my hard office, but all the new cubicles come with a bay of lockers, which feels a lot like a call center to me, not so much like a laboratory.

I think we're gonna get kicked out.

Research suggests that open plan offices are much better some loving bullshit that probably earned some fuckhead a masters. My research suggests that fucker has never worked in an open plan office and can suck eggs.

no they've admitted now that open plan offices are worse in every way except one, it's just that the one way is the only thing your boss cares about (it's cheaper)

Yeah all the studies about boosting collaboration and stuff were all clearly just window dressing for the fact that open plan = more employees per sqft/fewer sqft needed per employee.

Also I have another interview with Big Monolithic Tech Co What Is Search Engine Name working for my old boss on a team about 9 levels above where we were before, reporting directly to the CEO of our little shell corp. I would have to talk to my wife in a work capacity for only certain things so it's not considered a conflict even though she's a VP so, I may well take it.

I imagine working for Microsoft to be exactly as poo poo as working for a megacorp is supposed to be, as opposed to the promised utopia of Silicon Valley giants that is actually somehow worse in practice.

Yeah but it's supposed to, it's work right? Like yeah of course the one with the beer fridge and foosball table and flex time and stuff is better, but then you're left going if this is better why do I hate doing it. At least with Microsoft there's no doubt why you hate it. It's like the difference between like catholic hell and some high concept hell that has you torturing yourself.
