I am working on this start-up alongside a class project. The two things co-incide. The guy with the idea, self appointed CEO, of our made up venture name is trying to get everyone to remove me from the group.

 

Another team member got an offer to sell the business after following my advice.The part they are selling is the "CEO" idea and my idea, without my idea they wouldn't have "product x" to supplement "product y" which I also have had great input in.

 

This guy raged at me last night because we had a goup assignment and i told the team i would be committed to assignment. He tells me to send everything i have so far, after im two hours into the assignment claiming he can bust it out in 40 minutes. I send it near the end to give him the satisfaction of having "done something" and for goodwill with the team. This pisses him off who told me that it was the last time he would ask me nicely to send over the stuff, (Whats his deal? at this point i should have not sent it to him right?). We present next day I say, "nice job." He ignores me

 

We have a group meeting and he indirectly calls me out on it and then tries to joke around, no one laughs and says its his fault too. Then mentions that those who won't be present near the vicinity of the school during break should be removed from the start-up team because we won't be able to work on it (but thats irrelevant if we sell what we already have, plus theres technology to work around that). This is after they get the offer for product-x. He hasn't told the team yet, neither had the partner who got the offer. Anyways guy wants to run our classwork team too which correlates with start-up idea. Calls a group meeting, he only shows up to them if he calls them, during the time that i am in class with the intention of having me miss the meeting. I wonder what they are talking about and also says we should all write what we bring to the team and turn it in. He probably wants to read them and wont accept other suggestions on how we should handle it if we do that. (At this point its a personal attack on me and he also mentioned that he wanted more profits should the business sell) again at this point nobody except the two guys know the business has an offer. I am not sure if they discussed it in the meeting he singled me out of.

 

So this persons like i want to meet worth you tomorrow. I say, "okay." Anyways if you were me what would you do? If the idea profits from my ideas what should/could I do? Besides having the self-satisfaction that I made the $$$ we are talking over a couple thousand 15-30. At the meeting i was thinking of praising him for taking responsibility for the incident and addressing it, then noting that I was doing it for the team, telling him never again will he "im asking you nicely" me (establish boundaries), share our common point for the idea. I am using this method since this person likes to be in control. Basically all my ideas he takes them as his own during a meeting. I say something people nod their heads,  in agreement then he says he has an idea a couple of minutes later and says the exact same thing)

 

Or i could tell him to shove it and walk away from any possibility of profit.

 

Thanks for the help guys.

 

 

This has been irritating me, partly because ate together all the time. and were possible friends.

 

@Teach Me. Well, I would be irritated too if the one person tried to remove me from the team. They do not run it though, its a team right?  I don't know any advice to both get you what you want and help you. There are honestly more experienced people who work in all sorts fields here. Ask them for advice or start a thread specifically for it.

I witnessed an accident this morning and it did not have to happen. It was in the lane next to me and I clearly saw what the driver was doing: texting and also looking in her rear view and doing make up. She rear ended a poor guy that was at a stop in the line of traffic for a light. She plowed right into him without touching the brakes. BMW, recent model, 300 series, 30-40 year old blonde.

Hate to say it, but she deserved it. I feel bad for the guy who got hit.
post #60110 of 66518
Agreed. That's why I put it here vs. the happy thread. Also, not only the poor guy, but all the poor folks stuck behind this stupid bint at one of the city's busiest stretches during rush hour.

Women are such terrible drivers. They should stay in the kitchen and my basement where they can't hut anybody.

The things I've had that some women pass off as "cooking" these days could do a fair amount of damage as well. Luckily, my wife is not one of these women.

^ If they don't know how to cook, that's even more reason to stay in the kitchen. No Kardashians until you whip me up something tasty lol8[1].gif

After our final school tour and administrator interview yesterday, I think we're settling in on a school choice for my daughter next year. Cerebrally, I think we are making the right choice. The school we are leaning towards is the slam-dunk tiger dad choice, with what is likely to be a highly competitive environment, the largest endowment, the best facilities (it looks like an elite college), and by far the greatest breadth of different activity opportunities. However, I worry that its size and competitiveness may not be the best fit for my bright, but often stubborn, often dramatic child whose limiting constraint in life (from what we can ascertain at age 4) will not be her brain, but her heart. I also wonder if such a wonderland environs will deny her a sense of real-world grounding. Last, it is co-ed, and I really would have preferred a single-sex environment. I think.

Anyways, this will mean taking her out of the school she is in. She is very happy there, she is familiar with the surroundings, the community is wonderful, and the environment very supportive and nurturing. It's also close to our home in the city, and it is one of the reasons we chose to live down there. The new school is not far from my office, but still 30 minutes from home and will shift our family's center of gravity towards the county.

I desperately wanted the current school to have the goods, but it's clear they are a step behind in STEM education and I don't like their foreign language philosophy. I think the current school would be a more ideal environment for her, but providing a cushy surrounding for your child at the expense of the very best possible education and breadth of opportunities seems a silly, first-world choice.

Anyways, I am disappointed it has come down to this.

Wrong. BMW drivers have the right of way in all situations. It is known.

Maybe the folks on the team just needed a few minutes of peace and quiet?

Key piece of information missing here.

That's always a tough one, D. I went through some of the same considerations (different individualized situations, obviously) when we moved our daughter from our neighborhood public school to a private school a little farther away. For what it's worth, my experience has been that our kids are usually far more adaptable and able to roll (and thrive) with change than us old farts. Obviously some environments work better for particular kids than others, and we're always guessing a bit at whether we're choosing the right ones. But I think you can be pretty confident that it won't take long for the douglette to become acclimated to the new school and find her place in it (even if it take her longer to admit that fact to you, since she will undoubtedly sense and instinctively exploit your conflicted feelings about the matter). It's pretty much what they do best.
I hope it works out well for her.

I forgot how much job-searching sucks balls -- all the informational interview requests, follow-up emails, etc. Except, this time around, I'm trying to be extremely thoughtful around the positions I'd be interested in and the companies I'd like to work for.

This makes the entire process much more rigorous and energy-consuming.

I also got my first automated rejection email yesterday for a PM role. Guess I'm aiming too high (they said they'd overlook a lack of experience if the candidate had the technical skills).

I am still waiting to hear from j regarding my application to be a moderator on the forum. I hear the pay is good and the position includes lots of benefits. I fear I may be overqualified though..
