HR bailed on their meeting with me in regards to my grievance, notifying me about an hour before it was due to happen, and rescheduling for next week.

For those keeping track, this incident happened 6 months and 1 week ago.

I now have incontrovertible evidence that two of my guys are ghosting hours on the weekend.

So that's two open job slots, and I have a great deal of work to be done.  :tgrr:
Morrissey is the crown prince of sad.  He teaches us that deaf/mute girls are terrible at telling you that a disaster is occurring, and that when you get famous, all your old friends hate you for buying new tee shirts.  Morrissey fans are best known for hugging their legs and biting their knees in the shower, over a girl that dumped them rather than learn their name, or binge-eating an entire pizza and then throwing it up on their man-boobs in the bath tub, while they squeeze their  testicles until they remember that they are worthless and do not deserve love.

Fuck it.  It is what it is.  Or as Cain quoted like 8 years ago:

Quote
What is true is already so.
Owning up to it doesn't make it worse.
Not being open about it doesn't make it go away.
And because it's true, it is what is there to be interacted with.
Anything untrue isn't there to be lived.
People can stand what is true,
for they are already enduring it.
—Eugene Gendlin

Ghosting means working off the clock, right?
Formerly something else...

Thank you to past-Cain and present-Doc for that Gendlin quote. It arrived at an opportune time for me. Happy Friday, y'all.

No, it means being on the clock when you're not at work.

That's a fabulous quote.  Proof is that you remembered it for like 8 years
"he was a smart feller who felt smart"

Ah, I'd never heard the phrase, so I googled it and the first result I saw had it the other way around.

A ghost on the payroll is a salary for someone that doesn't exist, and is actually funneled to someone else.
Ghosting hours is being clocked in when you're not at work, collecting pay.

That certainly makes more sense than you firing someone for working for free.

That is also not permitted, as the state labor board assumes that you are coercing them into working for free.

However, it's not an automatic termination, and it's not being fired for cause.

So I got stuck cleaning out a walk in fridge / freezer. The freezer room in the back has been especially full of surprises. This is in an old (1960s era) biological science building. So far, I've encountered a lot of mold, tritium labeled sugars, highly toxic proteins (like ricin, but from a different plant), and an open vial of 32P labeled ATP. The good news is that the tritium labeled stuff was barely radioactive and sealed up correctly. The 32P-ATP was about a decade old so probably no longer at the 100 mCi on the label and even the original amount is not bad if you're handling it correct. As a wise man often says, "This is all normal." What I really wanted to share was this pic though. https://postimg.cc/image/x8j85dpgt/

I don't know this Kang character, but my compliments on the Easter egg.

Colby Dykes, a friend of mine on FB, got all crazy and did THIS.  I must respond.

Quote
Oh, to speak of Sam Tarwell.

To tell of his life is to risk summoning cthulhu for the purpose of telling it to lick your barnacle covered taint, but I'll attempt it anyway, Nyarlathotep be dammed.

In school he was as mediocre as one could possibly be, if you overlook him killing half his classmates by making chemical weapons in math class, killing another half by building a genocidal AI in choir, and the last half from causing internal bleeding by giving them all unending "pink bellies" in gym. He was mediocre because there was no one left to compare him to, therefore leaving him no one to be averaged against.

In the military he was awarded 35 individual medals for his mission to *-----redacted---* in the year *------redacted----* for the purpose of *-----redacted----*. Reading that mission report will cause your eyes to bleed with patriotism, which is now being referred to by doctors as "rapid onset ocular cancer", but that's commie talk and fuck them.

His life after the military is fulfilling in its own right, as he holds the lives and well being of several hundred wealthy senior citizens in the palm of his hands. He occasionally executes them on a whim, as tin pot dictators living in Tucson Arizona are known to do. Sometimes he feeds them to the homeless, sometimes he lets piranhas loose in the pool, and other times he simply steers the more visually impaired ones towards woodchippers and let's them do it themselves.

He is a walking version of "the aristocratics!" Joke, but only if it is was written by Bob Sagat and read aloud by bobcat goldthwait while he gargles a big glass of Tim conways jizzum.

He is a man who will be greatly missed now that he is gone. He's not dead mind you, he has simply escaped the facility and has therefore doomed us all to an awful awful death as he sabotages every water treatment plant in America, and reroutes all sewage lines into the city water. With the exception of flint Michigan that is, which he will singlehandedly repair. In Sam's own words "they've suffered enough, now it's everyone else's turn.".

Farewell and Godspeed you magnificent fuck.

Farewell.
