and after 3 days, he is risen!

If you are paying $20 for a haircut, I imagine people assume you did it yourself anyway.

Pocket change cost me my first and only black girlfriend.   It was in the middle of a roaring poker boom and I was flush in ways most men don't even bother dreaming of. Money, it was like dirt to me

Thanks a lot for the info on the documentary. I may have to check it out some day.

 

Impressive callback on the runny semen. I barely remember mentioning that.

 

Gonna hang out with new lady after 4 days of not seeing her. Sex is in the cards.

 

Totally kidding about the documentary. Why the fck would anyone watch that?

You guys are right, why would anyone care about anything historical, concerning music, movies or geographical.

 

That's my bad. Many apologies

you mentioned the semen in here? news to me

 

had a tele meeting with people at HQ. I said pretty straight up, a trained programmer can very easily do what I did in this situation. my manager stifles a laugh, my VP gives me a sideways glance. haha. not only am I an unofficial business analyst, but now I am ****ing training actual business analysts on how to be business analysts. this is actually a real thing happening to me right now.

Most efficiency experts don't muse on how to make their positions more efficient in front of people poised to effect such changes. Not saying you're wrong, just surprising.

they are never going to hire programmers to do what I do. if they do, it'll be in a group that touches high volume stuff at a high level, not highly customized, small vol low level stuff.

 

I was just pissed off at the situation. I am paid $28k you can ****ing figure it out yourself ms. probable 50+. I want my hour back.

the credit-grab, it just makes me want to throw up. yes, this is all happening to my benefit, but only because there's no feasible way to take it away from me without killing the golden goose. my manager was SO good at facilitating everything. she's getting completely disregarded. but I mean, I don't know how to right the situation. I can't even say anything because it will look like she complained to me (she has not, but her frustration is obvious).

 

perhaps I'll pick a snarky IM status message tomorrow. that will show them.

no, the raise is up in the air. this is still me being a run of the mill associate I. you know, eliminating full workdays, the usual.

 

I am thinking about just IMing the higher ups I'm familiar with in other groups with the simple question: off the record, time in position, a strict requirement or up to discretion? figure out who gives me the raise based on their answers.

 

I am interviewing YOU. let's get this straight right now.

 

probably wear a tie to work or something, as well.

That's why I should be #1. I AM this thread now. It's an outrage.

 

It was a good zing by tilt though. Just kind of hilariously off base but definitely funny.

 

Yeah well, that's what made it funny.

 

And, I'm just pulling your string because I'm insanely jealous. Pretty much my dream scenario, short of winning the lottery or something, is for my wife to get a good enough job that I could stay home.

the bubble chart really drove home the point you were making with the standard trendline one

the point being, "I'm not truly interested in displaying information here" of course

I thought the point was "I like PickUpStix" but the bubbles confused me.

I did get an invite to that wedding. And a "plus one". I've literally met this kid only a handful of times. One of them being at our mutual friends wedding where we were both groomsmen. He's in my phone as "mike-Dave's friend". It's end of September. Do I ask bartender chick?

guy that works for a payday loan place talking about playing the lottery

 

observation offered without comment

 

Rebuttal: I was talking about winning the lottery. As a dream scenario. Never did I say I actually play(ed) the lottery.

 

Observation offered with comment: So there.
