I just ignore the update prompt until it gets pushy and forces a restart, ruining my workflow and making me grumpy for the rest of the day

cant really recommend it

If you piss microsoft off by not restarting your PC for a few days, there's a full-screen modal you get that has like three options on it, and I'm pretty sure that whichever one you pick then it will restart your PC without permission.

all our trainings have moved from in-person classes to recordings of said classes, and are now becoming recordings of teams calls.

At my old job I would say a secret word in the middle of a recorded meeting and told anyone who asked about a recording that Id give them a dollar if they told me what the word was. I did this for about three years and one person actually got a dollar from me. My boss hated this schtick but I hated recording my meetings so it was important to irritate her so shed see it my way.

Type of peep at meetings: me, see above.

when the useless contractors finally lost their contact at my last job they dropped like twelve hours of recorded videos on us"for reference" and that's the worst bytes/information ratio I've ever seen in my life aside from mine posts

last week i had a meeting of three people and right after the dude directly voice called me to amend his answer to a question that was asked in the meeting (literally would have been maybe a 32-character im if he was being extremely polite)

the only way i would call a person directly after meeting with them for an hour is if it was part of some elaborate saw-style murderdungeon helltrap

I had the pleasure of handing over an integration to the support team and they made me run a KT session on MS Teams which they recorded. It basically consists of me clicking through pages of the wiki in ADO and reading them out loud.
