Just had a wonderful moment in work.
Went over to ask someone a question. She was slouched in her chair, left elbow leaning on the arm-rest holding her phone up and Whatsapping at break-neck speed.
I asked "hey, do you work on client x?" and without even remotely slowing down her typing or moving her eyes from the phone she slowly lifted up her right arm and just pointed right in the face of the person next to her.

Even in my prime of uselessness I couldn't hold a candle to that level of outward couldn't-give-a-fuck-ness.

Fella in my office wearing one of those "I listen to bands that don't even exist yet" t-shirts.

They weren't cool ten years ago and they're not cool now.

I want one that says "I listen to bands that broke up years ago".

The building next to our's is being renovated and they've been at it for weeks now. Last few days they've been drilling the walls connected to our building, using jack hammers, running them off a diesel generator. The noise is absolutely unbearable. I literally couldn't do a thing after lunch yesterday cos I couldn't concentrate or focus at all.

There should be a law against it or they should have to come in and do that stuff at weekends or evenings or something

you know when an boss reduces your responsibilities (despite strong feedback from key stakeholders) and then tries to remove the word "manager" from your title without going through HR - that's not cool, right?

depends. is he replacing it with 'vice president' or some such?

pretty sure your manager can't change your title. it should be in your contract

yeah it is

I'm going to quit in the next 6 - 9 months, and I'm just going to leave it on my CV as is.
