I work in healthcare with little patient contact. I shuffle paper. I haven't contracted Covid19 to my knowledge or passed it on to anyone since the inception. I follow the rules. Just not this one. I'm not against it, I'm just waiting. When my employer demands it I'll get the vaccine.

I've worked in covid had interactions (masked and distanced of course) with covid positive patients and have not contracted the virus to my knowledge. If I did contract covid, I have antibodies they should keep me safe enough.

I plan to continue to wear my mask, and vaccinated people should do the same. A fully vaccinated cruise ship has covid positivity transmission.

The scientist and doctors don't know everything. They are figuring it out as they go along. do I trust them, I work with them, they are practicing.

I've never participated in a clinical trial/research willingly and I don't plan on beginning today or next week.

When the FDA approves this vaccine or my employer mandates it which ever comes first I will get the vaccine. until then, I'm in phase 2 and plan to stay that way.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I have a family I need to attend to, job I need to attend to, as well as physical health I need to take care of. So I don't really feel as if "gloom and doom how do I go on."

But I just don't feel ok. Even with things starting to go "right" ... the lack of acknowledgement on how hard things got and the emotional need for a lot of individuals and society as a whole to demand that you pantomime normality ...

I can't call it. So much loss and and unacknowledged pain.

I couldn't attend the funeral for my uncle and my cousin's was virtual.
I gotta live with that. But when I look around, I got people that just don't seem to have experienced any kind of real loss as much as they feel they were inconvenienced.

I havent had a knock-down, drag out argument with anyone on here in a few years and it's 100% because most (almost all) of those people left. It's overall good. We're too old now to be doing that kind of thing anymore, anyway.

would just get out the workforce. Dealing with this woman who has worked here since 1986 and cannot tell me the name of the report she runs everyday (she just knows that she "clicks that button" everyday) makes me want to SCREAM!!!!

A former friend/mentor type- who was all about bootstrapping and personal responsibility and all that- would, about twice a year, come to me to fix whatever the fuck he did to his computer.

And so I just started doing a full reformat every time.

Anyhow, everything from email to netflix to looking at family photos required me to write out an exhaustive step by step list- literally starting with "turn on power button on computer".

This motherfucker gets paid low- but not entry level- 6 figures to run a wastewater treatment plant. I remember thinking, he's either got everything setup with color coded buttons, or he's just too lazy to pay attention to figure out this very basic shit.

I don't talk to dude any more, but I've come across a lot of his generation at various jobs who are just like that.

I finally had to go to a supervisor a few years ago to get some of the older people to stop coming to me every time they turned their fucking monitor to portrait or correct their printer destination or some shit. I started seeing IT show up fairly often after that, and it's still baffling that these people remained employed at a job that required computers, despite their seemingly complete illiteracy.

20 minutes

you could walk him thru something basic and 5 minutes later ask him what he was just taught and he would say “huh”

I think these types know people will do shit for them of they play dumb.

Dude told him DO NOT CONTACT HER, SHE IS ON PTO. 5 minutes later he replies, “I did exactly what you said.. and I also contacted her”

WTF????

I'll forget things if I don't take notes too.

They've saved my ass - especially if I haven't worked on something in 6 months and have to jump back in.

30. "Lots of reasons"
In response to Reply # 25


  

          

when they have me mentor, I train people to learn the handbook

I train them to learn the handbook, and to keep a record of updates, which come out biweekly, roughly.

Some people take notes and have a million post its on their screen.

but keeping a catalog of all the updates in addition to just using the handbook regularly simplifies the shit out of everything.

With what I do, small changes in policy occur with great consistency. So the notes people rely on can be outdated in two weeks, but if you just know how to navigate those handbooks and keep up to date on the updates, you're golden absent basic human error.

Part of the issue here is that my method requires lightly disciplined organizational skills, but it's extremely effective. Some people work better off notes though.

Overall, I find that the issue in my workplace, as it pertains to the 55+ crowd, tends to be the same issue much of that generation has: they just plain don't like change, and think everything should always be done the same way it always has.

They even hate changes that are to their benefit.

When ACA hit, for Medi-Cal cases that were under ACA rules, we no longer had to question things like living expenses, because that was no longer a factor critical to eligibility. Further, in a significant number of cases, those changes meant we didn't have to manually verify income at all, because much of this was done electronically.

People lost their damn minds in meetings over it. I strongly suspect some of it had to do with they now had one less thing the could lord over people, and thus the menial amount of power they kinda-sorta think they have had decreased. But it also fit the general pattern of complaining about anything that forced them to do something even slightly differently- even though it meant significantly less work.
