A sales rep and I were commiserating about various things like expectations around WFH. I described the forms we had to sign, which initially said "Must have a door to close" and how I'd asked why should I be required to have that at home when my employer has made it quite clear it's fine with my productivity loss due to not having that at work?" Him: "You SAID that? I need to ask you more questions because damn, you say things other people only think and think of things nobody else does!"
Cool cool cool cool cool cool cool... woke up this morning, picked up phone at 100% battery, checked email, it rebooted and came back at 10% battery. I used it for a while, it stayed at 10%, then I plugged it in for a couple of hours, it went back to 100. Unplugged it, went downstairs for WFH day, it dropped to 80% within 45 minutes. Went upstairs to listen to a couple of short podcasts while I got some coffee going, and it dropped to 40% within 10 minutes, then was 25% after I went back down.
Capitalism: Communism would mean the death of ownership! Say goodbye to having any personal goods of your very own.
Also Capitalism: Sure, you have a right to what you own, but we never actually *sold* you a product, we merely provided a service/product on loan for which your payment has currently run out. *said about literally everything*
Faculty member 1: You should filter all email everywhere regardless of how it comes into our systems.
Faculty member 2: You should never filter any email anywhere regardless of how it comes into our systems.
Both: This should work even if I choose to blindly forward all of my email to a third party system I may or may not control. Also ensure that all my emails both in and outbound are delivered quickly and perfectly.
Both: why won't you listen to me?! I HAVE A PHD! Also, fuck that other guy!
