Leaving things alone until you're forced to the hospital is how I was taught to deal with such matters.

It doesn't count until you post about it.

New job totally sucks. Only been at it for a week. Was hired to help get new systems in place and getting resistance from all sides. No authority to force it on people. Persona non grata. wat2do.

So you mean in a week's time you've not completely won over the existing employees and convinced them the new guy's way is best? No doubt I am over stepping my bounds, and you'll find my suggestion preposterous, but did you give a thought to spending your first few weeks getting to know people and elicit their take on things? Maybe get some buy in through listening and seeking input from the folks that have been there longer than one week?

Just another thought, but even if you had the authority to "force it on people," do you know the likelihood that would be successful coming from the guy that's been there one week? An entrenched workforce can force out just about anyone recently hired.

I'm enjoying a nice glass of expensive vinegar right now. The damn Vacu Vin corks don't do anything if you're too lazy to use the pump. (First world problems.)

It's not really a new way to do things. It's just a matter of old people comfortable with old technology and don't want to use newer stuff that's kind of a necessity.

why you always struck me as the Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerburg, Neo_v7 type. They just don't understand genius and visionary when they see it. Don't let the dinosaurs get you down.

We've got freezing rain, sleet, snow and 31F temps. Or as Link and his people would say: "The devil's temptation to bethwart you from thine labors."

"The Lord rejoiceth in our labors. Hath no joy of 'chilling.'"

Sounds like wintry mix to me.

I'm on a flight from Philly to LA in a middle seat next to my g/f. They asked the guy next to me 3x if he wants to move to with a window or aisle seat with no one in the middle seat. He said no. What. The. Fuck.

Did you even ask what Greenfrog wanted? How the Greenfrog felt? #misogony #jezebel commenter #male privilege
