Employers doing a survey to find that most of their employees are vaccinated, then mandating vaccines for employees, is not the bold leadership people think it is.

I'm thinking I'm experiencing job burnout. I'm the only one who can do a large chunk of things, that least is ever growing, and no amount of documentation can give others skills.

Hobby Lobby buys a tablet from Christie's auction house, and everyone carefully checks a box marked "we asked if it was stolen and the seller said no" and then the tablet turns out to be stolen, twice now. I knew Hobby Lobby was overly credulous before, but the fun lesson I'm getting now is that everyone is in on this whole international graverobbery business. Everything bought from Christie's is probably stolen, and that's never going to negatively impact Christie's.

We can force people to sign up for the draft and go to war, but we can't force them to get a vaccine?

The only way I would feel properly compensated for my work is if I received a raise every time a manager told me "thank you for all that you do"

Thank me with money.

Why are nearly all salespeople giant manbabies who can't do anything for themselves? They literally have no job skills, if they don't have "connections" because of nepotism and solidarity among the upper class, they really have zero to offer.

Yet they get fast tracked to upper management.

My boss sent out a company-wide email an hour ago saying scan-to-email from MFPs would be down from 2:15 to 2:30 due to server maintenance. It's 2:17 and we've received 2 tickets about scan-to-email not working.

"The Economy" will never "recover."

"The Economy" is not a real thing. It's a yardstick.

Worry about the health of what "The Economy" was meant to measure, not the health of the yardstick.

A melatonin ad talks about people not being able to sleep due to the stress of thinking about work. Maybe our jobs shouldn't be hell, instead.

Capitalism creating the problem then selling the cure.

Password must contain a symbol, a number, an emotional arc, a centralized theme, a big set piece, a male lead "struggling w/inner demons" & a strong female character.
