So we fired the part time night auditor, which makes me the part time night auditor. and I gotta say, despite what I said a few weeks ago...

I like it. My sleep schedule is beyond screwed. But it's an 8 hour shift that consists of maybe 90 minutes of actual work, and the rest just watching Netflix. I got through "Crazy Ex Girlfriend" and "Glow" while getting paid.

Other than the hours, can't beat that. My wife worked part-time in the offices of an outdoor shopping center, basically selling gift cards. She never had anyone come in aside from the security guards changing shifts and sat watching Netflix the entire time. She said she misses it.

Sometimes when I go to a gated community or something and there's a security guard hanging listening to the radio and reading the paper in between raising the gate, I'll be jealous of those jobs, even though my work is objectively a much better job. I just get jealous of those jobs with little responsiblity where you don't have to think much

At this point it stinks just because of sleep. Like I worked 7-3 today. Off the next two days. I go into work at 11PM monday. There is no proper way to prepare for that.

Sometimes I'll work 3-11, and then have to be at work at 11 the next night. So I got to bed a midnight. Wake up around 8 AM. Then around 2 I have to take a sleeping pill otherwise I won't be able to go to sleep

But money and solitude

Testing out the Android mobile device management shit we have since theres a case coming up where for whatever reason we can't use iPhones (which we have finally pivoted to after way too much blackberry resistance).

What a garbage process.

My head is spinning from how stupid people are at my job.

Nah but it's along those lines.

I've been using my old Pixel XL that I got to test stuff with years ago and thus far have gotten un-enrolled and booted out of the system 4 times. Asked wtf was going on and was told by the "admin" that "oh that was me I was making some changes". Asked him if the Partners who use droids are being affected in the same way and he just went "hmm.... not sure"




Upside / Downside is I have Strep Throat so I'm working from home with my dog next to me instead of a bunch of annoying dickheads

Yeah, we used to go to a local bar after leaving work at noon on Christmas Eve, that tradition is long gone now.....I made mac and cheese for dinner and put my daughter to bed after I finished work this year.

Spent an hour on the phone with a credit union member getting cussed out for
1) my employee's incompetence
2) a colleague's incompetence
3) my personal failings as a human being for tolerating 1 and 2
not to be forgotten
4) my personal incompetence
and finally
5) my employer's incompetence.

Some days I love my job.

Today wasn't one of those days.

Was really tough to leave the jobs I loved this past summer. But I feel lucky to have had them.

so this is a thing...

I get emails from my GM about once a week, addressed to everyone in a leadership position, basically saying how we suck and are doing a terrible job. It always confused the heck out of me because I'd read it and be like "i don't do any of those things, why am I part of it?"

my AGM told me that if it's addressed to everyone not to worry about it, but if it is just addressed to me, it's a big deal.

so a few weeks ago I was working a morning shift with my GM. She came out of her office and said "hey I'm sending this email to everyone, but literally none of this applies to you. Keep up the good work" and then she sent out a SCATHING email about the management team. Just brutal.

The next day one of my coworkers came up to me and said "So I heard you got the brunt of the anger from Mindy!" and I was like "Nope, she very specifically told me that I'm great and none of the email applied to me."

It was awesome.

So I guess this is technically in the wrong thread?
