    I just fired Deloitte from a project, so maybe that will help.

    I have a lot of clients who work for the state of CA. It seems like none of them like working with Deloitte either.

    I figure Deloitte is like any big firm, they have folks who are great and folks who aren't. Although with all those firms the overhead and billing expectations create some bias toward inefficiency and bloat in the approach to projects.

    Ya menz, Deloitte may end up being Toilet & Brush for him, we'll see; my only point was that from what I've observed even if you have it ultimo cush at the Gov it can still sap your soul.

    A new family is renting a house on our block. They have a kid who is probably special needs. He just came into my garage while I was outside working and wouldn't stay off my driveway.

    Oh yeah. Been there. I've also gotten rejection letters weeks after the hiring manager contacted me to let me know I didn't get the job. HR is bad on its own, but government + HR = next-level ridiculous.

    One day, when I have time, I'll start a thread like FLMM's "Pat" thread and talk about the ridiculous stuff I've seen, often from HR. My favorite one that doesn't require much background is the story a boss once told me about how HR wouldn't let him fire someone who'd faked cancer.


    I know I'll eventually get a response from some of these places, but, yeah, it's pretty terrible in the interim.

    On the bright side, I was at a neighborhood thing with my kids this morning, and we were making idle chit chat with a someone there who mentioned she works at a company I've been eyeing. I asked how she likes it and told her it was on my radar. Over the course of the conversation she said she's in HR, and I should send her a resume. She handed me a business card, which I pocketed without really looking. When I took it out of my wallet later, I noticed that she's a VP of HR! :slayer:

    Update on the dating matchmaker that I have a boner for: She replied and gave me the info for the artsy fartsy event, but I instagram stalked her and saw that she has a boyfriend and I lost interest. Booooo!

    X-post from the guitar threak.

    Playing chord changes is very hard. I have a hard enough time remembering fingerings in different positions, but in minor ii V i's having to change with chords and scales is a pain in the ass. Also, trying to mind 7,3 resolutions at the same time just seems impossible. It blows my mind that people can actually do it. As a mere hobbyist, I don't think I'd ever get to performance level for jazz. I'm lucky if I have 30 minutes daily to practice. I can compose really cool lines over chord changes, but I take time to do it and think about it, not on-the-fly.

    My bespoke shoes are taking a very long time to be prepared for my feet. I almost forgot I ordered them.
