There is this guy that I work with, he is about 10 years older than me and he is kind of the "forgotten" employee. People leave him out of emails and such and worst of all our boss and boss's boss and all of that constantly tell him to do things over and make them like mine. He has been quipping a lot about it recently. I think he is becoming really disgruntled.

A day ago him and I had to put some things together for some Fat Cat requests. I did the section that I generally deal with and his guy the section he usually deals with. So, last night the boss's boss sent both of us an email about some things to have complete by late morning regarding what we sent. Essentially it was an email telling this guy to make his stuff look like mine and add all of these other things that I had added, but wasn't asked to add just because I knew it would be helpful. This happens all of the time at my job. I pretty much can see either what questions people would ask about the data, or I have some foresight into the point they are trying to come to themselves. I basically do all of the work for them up front so it won't be this back and forth game for a week. Also, I like to show them how I already came to the conclusion they are searching for and whatever they think they are onto is old news 99.9% of the time it is old news.

So basically I am saying my going the extra mile, knowing how to deliver the goods, and slight presumption gets me further than this guy and he is butthurt about it. It also doesn't help that he is a low-talker.

^ Also, the request for late morning I had finished an extra write up on navigating the data and things to consider before this guy even got into the office. Get with it, man!

I use lots of moisturizer on my left hand (I'm a lefty).

That last point is probably key. I can see where it sucks to be that guy, but at some point he has to man up and say "What I'm doing isn't cutting it" and/or "Hey, Booth - you've got a process that gets better results than mine, I want to learn from it". I've got empathy and excitement for people who want to improve, I don't have much/any for people who just curl up into a ball.

Yeah, he just gets pissy. One time he said if he did the same work and just gave it to me to send in it would be fine. He thinks people are out to get him, but in reality he works in a bubble. Also, it is 11am and he still didn't get the stuff back to me to send in by "late morning". So annoying, and now it makes me look bad.

I feel the same way on Styleforum website betimes. If I sent my thoughts to Ace_of_Grace or Hoot_A_Ninny and had them post them, they'd get lots of thumbs up. But when people see the posts are from me, they are all like "whatevs I will wait patiently for the next post by Hoot_A_Ninny."
post #9639 of 12440
But Hoot-A-Ninny rocks. I love that guy. I wonder when he's going to post next.

Hoot_A_Ninny and The_Vegetabler are some of the finest posters we've seen at Styleforum just bring lots of good insights to the table (website).

The Vegetabler brings wholesome nutrition to the table as well.

When did Lego toys all of a sudden become so hip, and why? When I was a youngster (1970s time period), the Lego was regarded as an outdated toy, on par with Lincoln Logs. But now apparently there is a movie and the children of nation rejoice of Lego.

Word. K'Nex is much better.

I have never heard anyone refer to legos as outdated. They've always been regarded as one of those all time classic things that will be around forever. They're basic building blocks that allow kids to create whatever they want- makes them pretty damn adaptable to changing tastes and markets.

I won't dispute that, but there's a place for them both.

You shoulda seen the giant motorized aircraft carrier I built out of K'nex, though.
