- There is such a thing as dead weight. Firing is not a healthy thing in the workplace, but neither is 50% (or more) of our workers doing, almost obviously, nothing.
- Communication, even of stupid items, makes the little folks, the cogs, feel loved. It is a problem if different departments within the same division are given different levels of information. If X department is told all the details of something while Y department is left in the dark, Y will feel bitter.
- People can be awesome, nice, great people and still suck at their job.
- There is a level of respect that everyone should be afforded. If you get frustrated with your work, it is not helpful nor polite to take it out on your coworker
I now have two completely unrelated side notes.
There are weird adult moments involved in living with someone. Like getting Christmas cards addressed to both of you. I would like it noted, for the record, that I asked loml if he wanted to be signed on to the cards I sent. He said "no. what did i do to deserve that?" And so, my name only. More scary than Christmas cards: the check book that came with both of our names on the checks. We're not even really using it as a joint account. It's more like...a money pass through for rent. But it was still a heavy moment.
I unpacked the board games before the housewarming party and now I want to play. Who wants to join me? Or us? Either way works... I have off all of next week.
