    People who don't maintain the subject line in emails...

    This person compiles a report for me based on the results of a series of emails. Every time she sends me the report, instead of responding to one of the previous emails, she uses the email button in Acrobat so the emails subject line is "Filename.pdf - Adobe Acrobat Standard" and there is no longer any message history in the body of the email... Then if you try to sort things by conversation, you get everything leading up to the report but no report since the email software thinks it is part of a new string of emails.

    Seems too nitpicky and micromanagey to tell them how to send an email, but it is kind of annoying that information gets lost because they find it easier to click the button in Acrobat than to reply to the email and attach the file (and this report is almost daily so its not just a one time annoyance).

    Just tell her. No guilt in that. You could lead with some real compliments and gently mention that it would help you out a lot of she did it the way you want it

    My rommate is having a pitty party this week...

    A little background before I expalin. He is one of the laziest kids I have ever met, when he comes home and the place is all closed up instead of opening the windows he sits in the heat and waits for me to come home 2 hours later when I then open them. He never cleans nor takes the trash out. And he smells every once in awhile...

    okay so since we moved in 3 months ago he has put on some weight...pretty easy when you order out every day and dont work out. This week I come home from work and the fridge is covered in healthy food which he never eats...fruit veggies the works probably 60-70 dollars worth. He goes I am going to get cut...I roll my eyes "the food will go bad before you can eat all of it and if you want to do that eating fruit really isn't the best method."

    Okay so hes making an effort I'll commend him but hes doing this because he is now overweight and feels unattractive. Why don't you work out then? Oh I forgot he is lazy and wont work out.

    He watched the social network last night and texts me today...no matter what i do i will never be like mark zuckerburg...I am stuck in this accounting firm (hes been there for less than 6th months) On the way home from work he is going to barnes and nobles to pick up a coding book.

    Here is where its pissing me off. He makes twice as much as me does half as much work and all he does is bitch and moan when he knew what he was getting himself into because he majored in accounting.

    sorry for the rant

    So it would seem like hes pissing me off but it wasnt till his pitty party this week that put me over the edge...id take his job in a second to mine. I would not trade looks or bodys with him though thats for sure.

    I just put a little bit of fragrance on one part of my arm when I go to bed. (I've washed off the fragrance from that day.) I sleep rolled up into a ball--sort of like a cat, I guess--so my arm is always right up by my head. And so the scent doesn't usually get on my sheets.

    my wife gets her direct deposit from work every other wednesday. her pay structure (1099, commission sort off) is kind of complex. i noticed this morning when i checked the online banking that her pay was to the cent exactly the same as last time. which is practically impossible.

    so i told her to call and find out. turns out, the lady who does payroll is out for a month. their genius solution? just pay everyone the same as last time, and figure it out when the lady gets back.

    SERIOUSLY! WHAT.THE.FUCK?

    thankfully my wife had a good pay last time, but i know that her next pay will get axed from the overage of this pay. and i have no idea to the tune of what amount. not to mention, what about the people who had a shit pay last period, and were expecting a good one this time? they are just fucked for a month? REALLY?

    this company has 100+ employees easy. and they have 1 person who can handle payroll??

    i just. dont. fucking. get. it.

    this may be one of the stupidest things i have ever heard of.

    to be fair...I am pretty sure I would be able to handle payroll for a 100 person company all by myself...probably 200.

    Of course I wouldn't want to do it so I would probably figure how much it costs to hire someone like Paychex which would be far easier and then I would never have to worry about going on vacation and payroll getting screwed up

    i think that one person could certainly handle a 100 person payroll, but what i think i ridiculous is, that a company of that size woud reply on one old bag to be the sole handler of all its payroll.

    even from a business standpoint, besides fucking over your employees, if they paid say $350K on payroll in a period that they only would have had to pay $300K, that is a horrible waste of cash flow. or it could be the opposite, or they dont need the cash in hand. either way, its a pretty retarded way for a decent sized company to deal with payroll.

    i was disappoint to say the least.

    I'm kinda oc about being clean before hitting the sheets. I either take a bath just before going to bed or take a bath earlier but I'll stay inside my airconditioned room the rest of the night.


    sorry, man. might as well get your last sex from her.


    move out, that dude's gonna drag you down.


    hats okay... I've heard of payrolls getting delayed because someone didn't show up at work before.


    in other words, you just had a stitchy meal!

    +++++

    okay need to rant.... so me and the acidwife don't go out much, maybe just saturday nights if we're with friends but the downside of that is I need to get home by 12 since I bike early in the morning. anyway, with that in mind and her being stressed with her work, I thought it would be great to get out of the house and so coincidentally a friend of mine invited me and our common married couple friend for dinner last night at this new place which I wanted to try and also because a couple of our friends from out of town are meeting up too. so I called the wife up yesterday afternoon and asked her to go with me, y'know, to get away for the night- maybe get sloshed, talk with other grown ups.... she said she's kinda tired and wanted to stay home but eventually changed her mind. and at 4pm told me she'll just be in a meeting and will go straight home after since reservations were set at 7:30 and its across town.

    fast forward to that evening. she comes home 6:45pm and started complaining about having to go. even said I was forcing her to go. wtf?! eventually I told her she should just stay home, coz I can't stand her yapping and btw I only asked her to come because it would seem fun.... she went with me anyway, but the rest of the night I was in a fucking bad mood and what should've been a great night with friends and all that ended up with me just wanting the night to just fucking end.

    oh, and when we got home the wife found out her uncle just died from a heart attack... and I don't really care about that guy nor his wife and kids and my schedule's been busy plus a good friend's brother also died from a heart attack last sunday and I'm gonna end up spending the rest of this week going to wakes.

    Jesus Acid. My condolences on your losses.

    Now I just hate myself even more for wanting to come in here and bitch about how much I hate myself. This is like a Mobius Strip of self-hatred.
