I had assumed that if he has a M.S in Chemistry and have analytical chemistry work experience that he knows how to make % solutions. Never assume. But...damn. Mind blown.

Hired a guy recently for a dual role; for both chemistry and the biological side at an Ag company. No biology background except some classes in college and what not and I didn't think it would be difficult to train him some microbiology (basically plating cells). Plating cells is similar to making standard curves, titrations in chemistry and diluting samples with buffers.

When I instructed him to make 0.1% of X buffer, I just assumed that with his Chemistry background they commonly make solutions and dilutions all the time. I didn't tell him how to do it....I almost asked if he knew how, but I thought that may have insulted his graduate degree.

He went back to his desk for quite some time, and I was thinking, did he go back to calculate... there is really no reason you couldn't do it in your head.

The next day my coworker told me when she was at her desk, he asked her how much he should be adding to make a 0.1% solution.

As far as chemistry math, it's probably the simplest math you can learn/remember...even if you didn't do it after college. After all, don't people tip all the time?

Why do dudes feel the need to pee at a toilet when there is a perfectly good urinal right there beside the stall? Why? People have to sit on those things!

^^You have walls between urinals in most workplaces.

I say grow a pair, use the urinal, and keep your biological waste off of the toilet seats.

^^^Most people just don't go through the trouble of lifting the seat though. They just rely on that little break in the seat at the front of the toilet. But that is still gross if you have to sit down on a toilet.

Hey man, if dudes want to sit down to pee in order to keep the seat cleaner for the next dude, I'm ok with it.

Seats gonna be dirty regardless. That said, if people at your office are pissing all over the seat, that's an issue beyond just pissing in a stall

I mean what if the urinals are full and stalls empty? You supposed to stand there and wait?

What about at home? Does your wife/gf make you sit down or go outside?

At home there is no opening at the front of the seat, it is a complete oval, and of course I always lift up the seat.

I do the Super Bowl squares here at work and 90% of the people love it. We fill up two sheets. I try to make sure everyone has the opportunity to play if they want to so I walk around and ask. If they don't want to play I have 0 problem with it and move on. But some people always like to make faces and snooty remarks like they are too good to play or that it's stupid.

I've done it enough now that I think I can remember who to avoid next year.

"From ANSI 4.8:
"Any toilet or bathing room provided with urinals must have at least one that is low-mounted and with an elongated rim. It must project far enough from the wall to allow a person in a wheel-chair to get close enough to the rim before the Footrests of the wheelchair hit the wall under the fixture. Urinals that project less than 14 inches generally are not usable by someone using a wheelchair. Urinals with receptacles located in the floor are acceptable. Regardless of the type of Fixture, the flush mechanism must be mounted low enough so that it can be reached by a person seated in a wheelchair.""

I should probably call myself out... I work from home and just got a pair of noise canceling headphones... first time I've ever had noise canceling and I totally forgot that my cleaning lady and her mom are here cleaning the house.

I forgot and was ripping loud ones and talking to myself.

How many people feel like your mgmt are worthless....because they were once doing your job (about 5-10 yrs ago) but finally became mgmt out of seniority (only because everyone smart gtfo) and forgot what their real job was in the first place? I struggle with my organization's merit according to "alleged" (kiss ass) skill without any real power to hire/fire people. Anyone have a take on this craziness in the workplace?

Oh, they do it on a regular basis. We had a genius engineer (probably 160+ IQ) who had no aspirations of being a manager forced to be a manager on the promise it was temporary but desperate measure. He said OK, I understand. The guy was my manager for 2 yrs. He has the highest respect in the engineering staff and is an advocate for the schedule/delivery of the team. (a true realist) The new VP arrives and sucks the organization into a political battle. He basically over-commits the organization by 1/3 to take on a new role in support for our internal customers without increasing headcount. We suffer in sales, morale, and output. He quits to go into an awesome R&D role with a progressive company. I stay around and I get a manager who lacks a college degree and can't make a reasonable decision without deflecting the question and not understanding it. Yet we are a multi-billion dollar company who is very competitive in the market.

Offshore guys fuck up our product again, for the 5th time in three months because they can't follow directions and run a simple 15second process. I get an email yesterday from another group saying that everything is fucked and they can't prepare for their next release because our code is fucked up. Sure enough, these guys messed it up. I spend an hour cleaning it up, and others lose time as well. The ONLY people who are fucking it up are offshore, all under the same lead, and they never ask questions about anything.

We've sent multiple emails, have documented steps, with pictures, and politely asked everyone to follow this process. These guys refuse to do it, and instead try to make changes to 80 files, one by one, by hand, and they never catch all of them.

So, after wasting an hour on this, I send out another reminder, with the documented process attached, and I point out the users who have fucked this up repeatedly, saying they are not to touch this part of the system again without contacting me, so I can show them how to avoid the issue. They respond back saying, essentially, no, we won't do that, go fuck yourself. My boss (who is reasonably high up in the pecking order) sends an email to me and the specific people who keep fucking it up and their dev lead which says "hey, let's get on a call and go through this process on a screenshare. Let's work together to fix this." Dev lead responds "we're too stupid to do this. We won't do it anymore, since aaronburro is the expert and knows everything."



Fuck that guy.

Second time in less than a month that someone has removed the previous release from our codebase by using our code repository incorrectly.

Guess who gets to fix it?

My new job doesn't allow any personal electronic devices on the job. We're issued an iPhone and get a half hour lunch break, but the phone is for business use only. No watching the World Cup, or surfing the web at work is allowed.
