    That's super creepy. How can the woman not see his behavior is an issue?

    @allegate - She’s going through a divorce, and she may be attracted to the positive attention right now, even though it’s at work and breaks some rules. I’m only suggesting this because it kinda happened to me. What you see as creepy stalky might actually be something different, e.g. they may be texting each other, she may be sharing stuff with him, he may be thinking he’s helping her, she may actually like the “help,” etc. Tread lightly before inserting yourself into the situation. She knows where to go if she needs him to stop.

    Had a user call up because his laptop wasn't connecting to his docking station.

    Solution: I had him turn on his laptop.

    Lol. It’s not all old people. I had to train attorneys and admins for years. Amazing how many of them thought the CD drive was a convenient cup holder. I’m not kidding.

    Some of the cali users who conveniently have the same last name as the VP in the branch man...
    You can tell they’re a nepotized smooth brain immediately when every sentence has an upward inflection.

    I don't know if I've specifically said where I work other than a general position, I can't get more specific. But suffice to say that it really sucks to find out that my boss is so bad that people across the country are calling for his removal these past couple of days.

    Beta release tomorrow. Are we ready? Fuck and no, we're not. Security concerns should probably​ be brought up more than three days before the release.

    Found out yesterday that my position is in the process of being downgraded on a national level. This is after also finding out that all of the positions I could potentially promote into were upgraded out of promotion range.

    The good part of this is that my bosses started to immediately brainstorm how to keep me from leaving so I must be doing something right.

    Found out yesterday that my position actually isn't being downgraded - it's being removed and the duties are being distributed to the supervisors and other positions - but my supervisors are instead offering me a promotion to a different position. A position that has a further promotion in a year, even.

    I just talked to someone who went roughly the same route (admin to this) and he said it's a very complementary job path and that the skills are very useful from one to the other. I'm pretty excited TBH, especially since up until this point I was pretty much dead in the water as far as promotions go. There was a slew of work done in the summer of 2019 that put all of the positions out of reach of me and that meant if I wanted to get more money, I had to leave. This is better because I get to keep the awesome bosses and coworkers. Win/win/win I guess.

    I guess it helps that the place I wanted to go to didn't even offer me an interview for any of the positions that were open a few months ago. On top of that the people that they did hire that I have to deal with? I have to help them from time to time. Always fun.

    My direct supervisor a couple of weeks ago: It's almost review time and if I was doing yours right now it wouldn't be good*

    My direct supervisor last week: [Director] and I think it's time to start making the case for you to be reclassified as Assistant Director.

    ??????????????????

    *He wasn't wrong. I was essentially dropping the ball on everything in my life from about mid-December until close to the end of January.

    A coworker and I have been good friends outside of work for about 8 years now. We hang out, text constantly, gone to concerts together, yadda yadda yadda.
    At work we were on the same level and agreed on most things about how the way things were running. A couple of months ago, she got promoted to one level above me. Everything was fine until a couple of weeks ago an incident happened, and I called her out on it in front of our boss. She gets very emotional about everything and lets her emotions control her decision making at work too - which is very frustrating to deal with. She doesn't know how to manage things appropriately. So because I called her out, to this day she hasn't texted me, totally ignoring me on social media, etc.

    I've dropped subtle hints that I don't care about what happened anymore and want to move on, but she hasn't responded to any of them. She only communicates with me when necessary during work about work related things.

    Is the friendship dead? Some say, instead of the subtle hints, I should just flat out talk to her - but then there's the stubborn part in me (yes, I acknowledge it) that she's 10 years older than me and should know better. This is stupid high school shit and I hate it.

    In a strange twist of events, my job suddenly doesn't suck as much. Management hired someone with more experience, which has freed me up to do more work in an area I like. It's kind of a downgrade for me in position, but I get to keep the salary I negotiated at the beginning of the year.
    The bonus was they had to free up salary, so they let go of a guy on the team who was a complete dick.

    For the last 16 years my direct supervisor has been someone I've known since I was 12. (Oddly enough he has been my supervisor despite the fact each of our roles have changed with the company no less than three times.) It's definitely a tricky thing and there have been times where something has happed with work that has made us not talk for a few days. In all cases, we have been able to move beyond stuff. The individual in your story may just not be able to do it.

    @Archive_Reports I posted that beginning of March - she's still not talking to me, only work related stuff. Even my birthday passed, nothing. I've dropped a couple more hints, still nothing. I'm at the point now where I'm like "I said what I said" and I'm going to stand by it. Whatever, I don't care anymore - life's too short to stress about bullshit.
