Did he get a little wild eyed?

He seemed a little startled.   :lol:
So, is Norton not going to make it?  It sounds like he's beginning to crack under the strain.

Norton is going to be just fine.  I am a Doktor.

Things that got said at work today:

Me:  "Of course my smile is unsettling.  That's because I'm not smiling, I'm GRINNING."

Dave:  "The next person to ask questions when I ask if there are questions gets to write a full-page vision statement about how questions are a non-performing strategy."

IT Bear:  "How come Hamish gets to dance in his office and nobody yells at him, but if I do it it's 'unprofessional'?"

Things that got said at work today:

Me:  "Covid19 is a kill-stealing son of a bitch."

Me:  "Can everyone please not die from the horrible virus until after May 1st?  We have some deadlines, here."

Norton:  "David's doing that thing in his office again.  We better order some drywall."

Me (To Norton):  "Remember that Saturday is leap year day, and God can't see anything you do.  So have fun."

My boss threw his desk today.

I am impressed.

The thing is, it works. It really does. Washing your hands on a regular basis can cut infection rates by up to 70%.

That's good news for me. Most everybody I work with goes to the bathroom for 10+ minutes 3-4 times a day just to check their facebook, and, of course, have to wash their hands afterwards for realism.

Okay, so that's 30 minutes of lost production in exchange for not having the flu or this weird ass shit rip through your workplace.

I fail to see how managers get upset about this.

It's not even that.  It's petty authority.

Yeah. I should be grateful that petty tyrants tend to be... Predictable in lashing out and suppression of dissent. That predictability has helped me immensely in certain recent projects. It's very unpleasant to be subjected to though. I fucking refuse to be, but know when I have an advantage in seeming to.

Right? I mean that's just a small fraction of the production lost because of engineering screw ups, and where's the ROI on that?

Today I learned that a culture that can make 65" 4G monitors will use those monitors for morale by having messages on them that say things like: "We're never to [sic] busy for quality."

My morale is now measurably lower.
