Performed by the same white folks that did the performative “… and a good day to arrest Breonna Taylors killers”

Is one of the most annoying things on the internet in the last few years.

Wife and kids are sewn up.

The only thing left is a phone for my daughter, and I'm waiting until we're in full holiday swing after Thanksgiving to see if we can score a BOGO

That said, most years I'm scrambling over the last few weeks. You shouldn't feel like you're messing up though. Plenty of people are in the same boat. You just have to put it to the forefront of your mind and knock it out.

5. "work things"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

theres a coworker that im supposed to cover for in part since we are a small department. their work is nothing like my work, they do customer service/order entry. i do graphic design. i can kind of cover for them if everything happens in the way they explained it to me. so like 10% of the time.

we had some delays pop up on a new item that put the due date in jeopardy. while trying to figure out what to tell the customer regarding potential new dates they told me they were going to be out next wednesday. i told them me too, so they say "ugh i guess i can remote in and take care of it". they dont bother to let me know when theyre going to be out and are mad i cant cover for them? i have no idea when they requested the day off. as far as i knew they dont even have any time off left. mine was approved weeks ago so im good.

theyve been out/working from home for at least 2 full months this year with no consideration on if i needed to take off during that period.

a big part of the problem is with our boss but i do think they should at least give me a heads up on when they request time off if theyre expecting me to cover for them. i usually find out when i show up and theyre not here.


on a much different note, mens bathroom talk.

so weird. i dont like talking past a hi/whats up when in the bathroom. a nod is usually plenty.

i was in there earlier and another guy came in. as i was finishing up a third guy came in. one of them tells the other

"whats up...you cant find it??"
"its okay i cant find my own"
"you need to borrow a magnifying glass??"
"nah i got zoom on my phone"

yes, 45+ year old dudes at work making penis jokes in the bathroom. i imagine women arent having these convos in the bathroom but maybe im wrong. not sure what a similar version would be for them lol

i wonder if this is a mexican thing, local thing or if its common for guys all over.

but I couldn’t get over the time change.

every night at 10PM I started fading.

Ate an amazing steak at Blue Ribbon.

Shit is stupid expensive on the strip.

Beef Wellington is over rated.

Walked a whole lot.. felt like I was in NYC.

The service industry workers have all been nice af. Even at random spots at random times of the night when you would expect them to be exhausted or over the crowds.

This weekend I kicked my son out of his makeshift room and made him be roommates with his sister.

One of issues was he kept waking up in the middle of the night at least twice. Which is our fault, because we didn't do any real sleep training this go around and now dude is spoiled and wakes up and wants company.

My sleep has been in two hour blocks as a result. He wakes up at 11 and 2-3. I was going to bed sometime before or during that 11 block and waking up officially at 5.

For the last week I've gotten a full thing of sleep. Or at least 5-6 hours. Sometimes 8. But that has had the effect of what I'm guessing is my brain not just cranking up the adrenaline and muscling through life. I feel every single bit of my body and age right now and it's awful.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

peoples mail. I complained to several carriers and one even wrote on the envelope some code that was supposed to indicate the person doesn’t live there. The very next day a different carrier brought that same mail back WITH the code on it. THAT was in July. today I am looking at informed delivery and that same mail piece WITH the code on to is scheduled to be delivered today.

I complained to the “supervisor” (always someone different) at the local station more than once about this and other situations. One “supervisor” said he would have a postal bucket brought for me to drop mail for people not at my address into so the carrier can take it back.The bucket never came.


At one point I went went 9 days straight with no mail (complained about it here too) and when I finally got through to the post office first they said they didn’t have a key to the building to which I replied that I live in a house so that makes no sense, then they said my mail had a stop on it to which I informed them that I never put a stop on my mail. A year later when I actually did put my mail on hold because I was out of town, I got home and there was tons of mail - some for me, but most for people who don’t live there.

So … when I don’t put a stop on my mail it doesn’t come but when I do it does. I just generally hate the post office that serves my neighborhood.

Also, the people who used to live at my address are pretty stupid. The father’s property taxes still come to my house. He said he put in a change of address but every year his city property taxes come right along (separate envelopes) with mine WITH my address one it. The son, about 19 years old, apparently applied to college using my address. He is 19! They haven’t lived there for 2 years. Why did he submit his college application using my address!?! And the grandma seems to have never submitted any form of address change EVERYTHING of hers comes to my house from IRS letters to Medicaid stuff to catalogs.

for some reason I feel like GA mail is trash.

My sister sent me a bday card and it took 45 days to get from ATL to Charlotte

In response to Reply # 19


  

          

Delivery is driven by district managers. Not carriers, not supervisors, the DM is the voice. A good DM has good delivery bad DMs dont.

If you ever have a problem, try to find the name/email of the district manager
OR
Write your congressional rep. Congressionals have a mandatory 24 response time internally.
