I just looked outside my door and it’s pouring so I think it’s noooooope on going out.
So do I. And it’s been a long time since I’ve had a day in. But it’s also probably a once in a lifetime chance to hear this speaker.
I have tickets for a movie and Q&A tonight, and I know I should go but it’s raining and it’s so gross out and it’ll take me forever to get there and then get home...
I mean I always support book buying. But I do find this is useful in getting me to actually read books I already own.
Sure. I have one small shelf that fits about 12 books give or take, and that’s the shelf for books I want to read in the next 3-4 months. Then I have several much larger shelves that house all the rest of my books. Since I often feel very strongly that something is a fall book or winter book etc., when the weather…
The last book I read was Washington Black, which I loved and it ended up on the NY Times 10 Best Books 2018 list!
These are so good though! I definitely wouldn’t have thought to ask about how disagreements get resolved and that’s such a good question.
We have our office holiday potluck and I’m excited/nervous that my mushroom pie won’t be as good as when I made it over Thanksgiving.
That’s a great idea.
TBH it’s partially my fault. My first year here I had forgotten to add some special guest information and my boss was unhappy about it. So the next year I said I would check my list against the other list to make sure no info was missing, and I think my boss thought that meant our lists would be identical. There…
To be fair to her, her department records way more information about each film and event than I do, and it’s really hard to get things perfect. Also, this is entirely a problem of our managers creation. My coworker’s boss and another senior member of their department are supposed to proof and sign off on the list. But…
The three of us had a quick meeting yesterday after I posted this and I feel a lot better about it. Basically it’s her department’s responsibility. I’m involved because anything we print and send out for public use gets proofed by my department, but yesterday my boss was like “it’s on their department to get it…
Wow. On top of being obnoxious that’s so unprofessional of her. I’m sorry you have to deal with her sucking.
Sounds like the universe gave you the chance to stick it to them but in the nicest way possible.
It’s so frustrating. And it’s honestly not really my coworkers fault. Her department head and another senior staff member are supposed to be proofing the list and they definitely don’t. But I spoke to my boss and I think I fixed things, at least from my end, so that I’m not being held responsible for someone else’s…
Unfortunately we do want two separate lists. After I posted this I got my boss and my coworker together for an impromptu meeting. I have no idea if it’s going to fix things entirely but at least I feel like I’m not going to be held accountable for someone else’s work anymore.
It isssssss. Actually, after I posted this I just grabbed my boss and my coworker to be like, we need to figure this out. And I think we did. I’m pretty sure my coworker isn’t happy about it but fuck it. I’m tried of being stressed out about something that’s on her.
One good thing about the holidays is that for the past several years I’ve spent Dec. 25 with the same friend for a Jewish-Muslim Christmas to partake in non-religious elements of the holiday.
It IS! I listened to the first season of it because I wanted to hear Lee Pace’s voice but had to stop because it freaked me out too much.
