Prospective workplace pre-requisites?

urbanbohemian: Actually, it kinda hit me yesterday. I wanna work with “my people”. khowaga: You want to work with gay African-American web developer food snobs with a heavy caffeine addiction? That’s not exactly what I meant, thanks Chris. I think...

Bloody noses all ’round!

I was in line in the Starbucks this morning and the guy behind me says to his friend, “Yeah, they moved me from a cube to an office so they can build our team more offices.” — and I wanted...

Woo-hoo!

The goal has been reached and exceeded thanks to a rather cheeky recent donation of $69… So I’ve raised my goal to $750. It looks as though I may just be walking on my own with the WWC Team or...

Well, I suppose I really should be working…

Ok, no more DC Metblogs at the office, or any number of other blogs or sites I regularly check through Google Reader. I’m amazed mine escaped scrutiny but I guess I’m not on a list yet. I remember when this...

Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose

A picture taken on the way from the airport to the hospital gave me a bit of the nostalgia. The Equitable building has been there ever since I was a kid growing up in Atlanta. We hadn’t even gotten around...

on the elevator this morning…

I’m really into my music and doing the remainder of the morning’s sudoku puzzle in my head and thinking about how much forehead sweat I’m probably showing due to the humidity and deciding that I really need to invest in...

Happy Ann-adverse-ary!

Four years ago today I got the call. My manager called up to tell me that two weeks hence, my position would no longer exist. If only Fired! had existed back then, I might have felt a lot better about...

I feel WAY behind the curve on this one

I’m behaving when it comes to lunch, especially considering that we still have limited access to our building’s atrium after a window broke and fell from the 5th floor. So this morning I’m bringing in my yogurt and a frozen...

work: I’m a tree, I can bend…

Well the little missing paperwork drama was resolved with a simple, “Oh, if you don’t have it, you’ll just need to redo it.” That’s all, just redo the stupid form and get signatures again. Ah well, I still love my...

on the elevator this morning…

I was actually pressing the close door button pretty severely but as the elevator wasn’t responding, I gave up. Just as the doors were about to close, I saw a figure sprinting for the gap, so I held the doors....

on the elevator this morning…

Even though she was walking terribly slowly in front of me, right in the center of foot traffic, I still held the elevator to let her on. As I had done her this kindness, she decided to confide in me....

One ‘o these days, I’m gonna blow my top

Yesterday it finally happened. I was ready to snap, pop, blow, whatever your term of choice is. I’d gotten my last straw, I was ready to break out into ‘Take this Job and Shove it’ all of that. And it...

Speaking of disbelief…

I should probably mask this entry somehow, but right now I’m just pissed off and I need to vent a bit. If anyone wants to give me legal advice on whether writing the truth still constitutes libel, feel free. I...

I’m ready for that drink now

I still haven’t managed the energy to write about the weekend. My manager called me last week to let me know that there would be layoffs announced today. I guess it really didn’t sink in then, but today I realized...
