I thought this was the dream thread lol
Due to budget issues, I had to cut a few consultants and today is their last day. One of them just sent me a really nice thank you email and I'm so sad to see him go. He's been such a fantastic resource and has an amazing drive and work ethic. He's also solved a lot of issues we've had that others on the team couldn't figure out. He's fairly young (late 20s) in his career and I really think he's going to continue to grow and be a standout option. I'm disappointed I couldn't help him more on that path. I wanted to let go a different consultant but got overruled which makes me mad but also more sad that I have to lose this guy.
That stinks bug. Can you offer to be a reference in his job search? I'm sure your words of support would help!
I've offered and I've written a nice linkedin recommendation.
I’m so tired and my brain is broken, but I got just under half this year’s needed hours for my license.
@MagnificentCat thats such a good feeling! Do you have to get yours every year?
Ours is every 5 years you but you can submit for recert anytime during the 5th year so I did mine already. I am officially recertified through 2025! Its a very weird feeling because now I don’t need any CEUs this year (can’t count any toward the next period until 2021). I guess I’ll get to spend a lot of time at the exhibitors hall at the conference this year haha
Yes. Mine is annually. I always set a goal to get at least 1 per month and that never happens so I end up cramming them in at the end of the year. It’s bizarre having so many hours in February.
I had a coworker who did 4 of her 5 years worth the last 2 months of her 5th year. *I* was stressed for her! You should def treat yourself to some cake!
Well, never say you've seen/heard it all. Was calling a patient with some results and her Vm was an entire sermon delivered by her. An entire sermon. It lasted 3 whole minutes! Brutal.
Work drama is happening today and I am so here for it.
....and so are we....
It’s really fun when all 3 of your aides leave for recess with 3 of the students, leaving you on your own to finish getting one student ready while the other student (the only one able to walk fully on his own) left with you is ready to go and keeps going after you to scratch you because he’s bored waiting and wants to go to recess too. I’m too pregnant for this shit.
I spoke to my aides about it a little when we finally got to the recess area but I’m going to bring it up again later. Most of the time it likely would have been fine but today it wasn’t, and that’s a safety concern not just for me but also for the student I was assisting.
Someone at old place sat on something for 4 months that is supposed to be completed by next week.
Oh, and I got to call their boss about it.
Looks like they’re missing the deadline. I get to call a meeting with our list of demands for missing this very critical date.
Work brag: We’re launching a new service next month but are capable of doing it sooner. Today we got our first interested patient so I had to hurry up and figure out how to talk pricing and sales etc, which is going to be a new additional role for me. Well we had a great meeting and she’s signed up! Boss said he will incentivize me with selling the new program, still need to talk specific $/%. It’s exciting for me to have the potential to make more money!
We were supposed to get an update first thing this morning. Radio silence. And every one involved at old place isn’t answering their phones. This is delightful.
ETA: holy shit they’re going to get it finished this week. I have no idea what they did because this is usually something that will take a minimum of 4 weeks from the start— they’re likely paying a contractor through the nose to finish. Person that works for big boss thinks I’m a miracle worker because I had already given her a list of contingencies for when they screwed up and didn’t finish. Having been on the clean up side when someone didn’t come through, this is a lot better.
Dear new cubicle neighbour: having a whisper conversation with your buddy about your latest tinder adventure is honestly more annoying than if you just talked about it at a reasonable volume.
