For something that's not urgent, send to email first. If no response, send a text. If no response to that, phone call to land line or cell phone. Only in the case of an emergency do you hit all of those devices at once. But for some reason they often do just that even for routine notifications.

I cannot fathom why you would choose to accumulate eight weeks of vacation.
    I just had to take a couple days PTO to avoid capping out and missing further accruals. Get 4 wks/year and can accumulate and carry forward double that. I normally use 4 weeks or so every year but accumulated a ton a few years ago when I was crazy busy and unable to take time off. Shit happens. It's hard to take more than a week off at once and doing that I have to work ahead before the trip and catch up after. So not much point except that I can get away and do something I can't do in a 3-5 day trip. So I mostly take 1-2 days off at a time. Its surprisingly hard to reduce the accrual that way.

    All the sanctimonious armchair "heroes" I'm seeing on social media lately. I have never seen so many people being so high and mighty, constantly admonishing others, while loudly proclaiming how awesome they are because THEY'VE been self-quarantining for weeks on end and proud to do so. 10/10 of them have been your stereotypical "Karen." Pretty sure they REALLY want to ask to see your manager.

    Gotta love how many people act like they're such heroes, all from the comfort of their air conditioned home, munching on ice cream bars and bonbons all day binging Netflix. While not even giving a shout out to the people on our current front lines, our medical personnel. THEY deserve big time kudos these days. Along with truck drivers, store stockers, and everyone else working their asses off to keep our society's wheels turning right now. Not Karens, those pompous bitches. Lol.

    Ha! Outside from this place I don’t interact on social media aside from lurking but I’ve got one classmate from dentistry school that is exactly this. I’m so tempted to break my self-imposed ban on posting just to tell her she should back away from the internet for an hour or two.

    But then I’d miss 5-12 posts of her self immolating in the name of e-shaming for COVID.

    Did you ask Lily first?

    Does she approve of your white shoes, white belt and plaid golf Bermuda shorts before Easter too?

    Down here in more temperate climes, white is an acceptable color to wear year-round; no need to dig up the corpse of Ms. Pulitzer for her opinion.

    My gin consumption moves from Negroni based to G&T form sometime around March 1, or when the mercury hits 70. I like to be in prime form by the time The Masters rolls around.

    Haha. Exactly what I'm talking about. It's bad out there on social media. Particularly on NextDoor and wife's FB is where the worst seems to be. I hear Instagram and Twitter are also way infested with celebrities and uber wealthy acting like they're "with us" while sitting pretty in their mansions/yachts with absolutely nothing to worry about financially. Whilst many of us already have or are actively losing our livelihoods.

    I also had the same problem of getting work done, so I would shut down email, skype, turn ringer off every 30 minutes, then check. usually most anything can wait 30 minutes; but seems teams will notify you even if you have it off; hopefully I am wrong.

    I expected white shoes and belt to match the tastelessness of your pre season G&T. I sit relieved.

    Just like the thoughts and prayers from the conservatards after mass shootings.. it's all self congratulatory bullshit.

    Fucking people that bitch at me for my dogs being off leash on the front yard when I let them out in the morning to pee. Really bitch? They are not even paying attention to you, just walking around sniffing stuff and you're giving me shit first thing?

    Wow - in your own yard? Fenced or fenceless? Doesn't matter.

    I screamed at a dog owner this AM who was encouraging () her off-leash (in a strictly on-leash only area) mutt to chase ducks and honkers - called her an insufferable, stupid twat. She laughed and flipped me off. Probably would have done something very regrettable if we hadn't been separated by 50' of water.

    Heh. Was late to the office this morning due to the dog down the street that gets out from its prison, and comes to torment my hound that is behind the fence. My hound has a massive hate on any dog that runs free in the neighbourhood, pissing/shitting and otherwise disrespecting our unfenced front yard. Well, neighbour's dog as usual goes up to the fence to snarl and snap to get her going. She apparently reached her limit today and went right through the cedar panel fence and laid a beating on him. The whole neighbourhood could hear the screams. Don't think either was harmed; we'll see if the other stays away for a bit. Hastily patched the fence with a piece of plywood, will see what I can do this weekend. We've talked to the owners, submitted complaints to the bylaw officer, but so far the poor neglected dog still gets out and is a nuisance. These kinds of dog owners really annoy me, especially as my first impulse of the moment is to punish the neglected hound.

    Speaking of dogs, mine decided to enact her revenge for not getting a walk by destroying the most precious commodity in the house.
