I support the plastic bag ban. Whenever I don't have a bag I just suck up the 10 cent fee. Plastic straw ban I don't like. Paper straws aren't practical.

That's not a plastic bag ban you are describing. That's a business passing a cost onto you and making YOU feel bad about it.

I don't like straws in general. Makes me feel like a 5 year old drinking a capri sun at half time of a soccer game.

I remember a lot of back and forth between plastic and paper bags. Plastic's worse, no we found that paper's worse, no actually plastic is objectively worse, please save our planet and take a paper bag. If you weren't with the times with the latest findings, then you looked like a Captain Planet villain in the checkout line when asked "paper or plastic."

"Would you like a bag with that?"
"No thanks, I'm parked right outside." *walks away, confident in the knowledge that you just saved the planet*

I feel like someone announcing they plan to implement a new system 2 years from now is actually planning to not implement anything at all.

not really announced as told by someone on the team that is the plan, if they don't they'll likely all be fired

we've been trying to transition to a web-based CRM since 2020. One of our c-suite execs fell for a phishing scam that resulted in a ransomware attack that put our company down for almost a week, so that delayed pretty much everything IT/MIS-related.

I tried to get our MIS team to build me some distribution software but my business case was denied. I ended up paying some local college kid $3000 to build a simple one from scratch. The guy who denied my proposal was demoted from a VP to an assistant to a VP. Fuck him.

Only a week isn't too bad, took us like a month.

If we went behind ITs back they'd probably get mad.
There's 5 IT guys for the entire company, MIS is a different team and have no idea what they do.

My last day's tomorrow. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do, really. Turn in my laptop and badge at some point, I guess.

How much of a pay cut would you take in order to WFH forever all else being equal?

why would one have to take a paycut in exchange for WFH? are we not all doing the exact same responsiblities and making the same amount of money for our 'modern, digital' companies?

only in america would bosses try to construe WFH as some amazing 'privilege' that must be paid for.

i WFH'd for 3 days a week even before the pandemic. welcome to digital media in the 21st century. what do i need to be sat at a desk for?

In order to remain open during the current one week lockdown, which they did, my genius GM redefined the company as a hardware store, even though there is literally no aspect which could remotely fit the description of a hardware store. Nothing is sold from the site, we don't make consumer hardware etc. Hardware stores being able to remain open in case people need to make emergency home repairs.

So apparently I work in a hardware store.

Although actually I took a week of WFH and some time off. Someone should have reported them, maybe I will next time.

This is an opportunity for you to make some depraved mental notes on your new junior colleagues. Plan out the order in which you'll molest them. Subtly prime them for the experience with Lector-like suggestion in your talk.
