#3770108 I Called In Sick Today

School year is over this Saturday and it couldn't come soon enough. I'm excited to have downtime until mid-July.

I just got a big raise (30%) and bonus this week, which was nice (and a little unexpected). Won't really change anything, the wife is already at home and the kids are starting to leave. One is gone, and one is leaving next summer. But I may splurge and get myself a "new" car. A 2011/12/13 Impala seems likely, although I'm definitely going to be looking at used Avalons as well. I'm a little hamstrung by refusing to finance a car ever (even at 0% because I'm stubborn), so I have to get something that I have the cash for. That may mean that I have to wait until next summer to upgrade.

I need more pics from Mexico's new house and am looking forward to the pics from Napa's place if he ever gets to claim it.

Anyone else have someone they really like who just produces absolute crap?

I'm pretty sure this entire thread is built around that notion

I figure all of my personal information has already been leaked by equifax, insurance companies, target, etc and I carry around a cell phone at all times. Privacy is non-existent at this point. Ill set up my smart home with as much security as reasonably possible but Im not going to sweat it.

Just so we're clear: You're the guy that's offended by the thought of moving to Alabama?

Good to hear. You sounded miserable in sales.

Yeah, it makes me think that a 4th gen is coming soon with all the sales but for the most part they haven’t been better than Black Friday last year.

Also, they’re super easy to install, you probably get a rebate from your utilities, you can always just replace it with the old one if you’re going to sell, and it will probably save you money since you live by yourself and I assume you’re schedule is pretty consistent.
I don’t have the third wire or whatever. I would have to install a new plate etc. all for something I definitely don’t need. It would just be nice to be able to tell google to adjust the temp.

If anybody with a Costco membership has been wondering what to get me for a house warming gift, the silver Nest 3rd gen thermostat is $150. Id even forward any energy rebates on to you as well as access to the VIP lounge at #RibFest.

Were selling some branches and the price is somewhat dependent on average account balances and so Ive been tasked with tracking these daily balances and as part of that Id been sending my boss a weekly report with a high level summary of how/why balances were changing and this morning I decided to just formula it all out so I just have to copy/paste my daily data dump in.

Just as I was finishing up I get CCd on an email that started from our CFO working its way through managers asking if we had any way to tell why balances were changing and Im like yeah, just give me a few minutes and boom, it was done and now these managers have to recognize my skill and forward thinking.

It would also require me to move to Mobile, Alabama. Enough said on that, I believe.

I respect the guy's hustle. Sounds like you two don't have any hustle, and wouldn't be a good fit for his company anyway.
