@Parable: your job officially sucks much.
@thread: so, we're having some important visitors to my source of employment tomorrow. By "Important" I mean our local congressman (Rick Larsen, for you WA tropers), the head of the GSA (this guy apparently hands out Obama's stimulus money), as well as attendant news cameras (KVOS-12, again for you WA tropers).
Should be fun. I'll try not to piss anyone off.
The point of it, near as I can figure out, is they want to show that Obama's stimulus package didn't just go to big companies, it went to small business too. If I end up on-camera I'll post the link from You Tube.
Best of luck with that!
I just wanted to mention that my incredibly wonderful husband aka Justice has bagged himself a job immediately due to begin once his current contract ends. Well done darling, I'm so proud of you.
Congratulations! I'm glad to hear that
Yay for that!
Well I might lose my job due to corporate greed.
On the plus side I will have about a month of work left in the worst case scenario.
That sucks, Teufel. Shame you don't live 'round here, because I'd try to find you a job at the university ... they employ a lot of security.
Aw, Tuef. Do you have any idea where you might find a new job?
Going to work with my new boss tomorrow. Only met her once before that, and, well, considered her quite annoying. This one does not take kindly on being addressed as "kid" by anyone but immediate parents (and even they do not do that). It's probably an extremely petty reason to be annoyed, I know, but that's how it is.
Anyway, I have no idea what she's going to want from me, but it seems to be different from what I've just got used to.
Wish me luck, if you will.

Man the amount of food we throw away each day at closing is just disgusting. And I get why they won't let us take stuff, but man it sucks to see about a hundred bagels get thrown away.
Can't you donate it? I know a lot of the bakeries in my area donate their leftover bread to people who run suasage sizzles and coffee vans for the homeless.
People come like every other day to pick it up, but still it's a lot of food that gets thrown away.
When I eat, there is no food leftover.
Although I know that is not what you are talking about Alk.
Some places also sell their leftover bread to feed livestock.
Time has rolled on and my job thing worked out for the time being.
Ok folks hypothetical question. You work in a building that uses a combination of biometrics and coded electronic badge system. You have to badge yourself both in and out of the building. There are several areas in the building where the only way in is to badge yourself in. The company has a policy against propping open doors to said secure areas even if one of the 3 or 4 entrances is not working properly. So why do people still insist on risking their jobs by breaching security and propping open the bloody door?
I may have just secured a job.
Good news, Deboss.
As to your question, Teufel, it's like why people still drink and drive. They have problems remembering consequences or realizing they may actually happen.
Or that the rules apply to them.
As a security guard I would say that the rules apply to them is the most common reason.
Now I have question for you folks. How many of you have jobs that have a security guard element? What is it like? What are the guards like? etc.
Grats on finding a job.
I said maybe. They sent me in for to pee in a cup, which is generally a good sign.
I generally assume I have the job by the time I'm being sent to pee into a cup. I've never peed into a cup and been told they picked someone else.
Same for me. usually by the time they are drug testing you it is usually done and over.
Never had a job that was anything like being a security guard, but my housemate Richie's friend Ashton is one. The university I work at has its own police force (100-ish armed peace officers) plus about double that of security guards. They seem to like their jobs, and they seem to take on a lot of ex-military guys and girls for the guard positions. They keep an almost military level of presentation, too. Very neat indeed.
American universities must be terrifying places. The entire security force at my university consisted of three old men in boiler suits.

How well does it match the trope?
