I have so much money on electricity by not watching TV most evenings

But I've got this 220V electric stove cranked to 11...

Omg

A customer doesn't pay a bill.

The email went through 6 people before it got to me. I guess this customer uses some software, Xign? So on this unpaid bill is the name, email addy, and phone number of the person I handed the bill to, who didn't pay it...

Anyways, this email comes through, "ask customer why they no pay"

Uhhh, okay, 6 other people who just passed the buck...

I forward the email to my contact at the account, she says when she went to pay it, the software showed a huge credit, she called, they said don't pay.

I relay the email back to my boss... Now, I'm in the CC list as this email trickles back up the corporate ladder, and I get copied on another 6 emails... And they just decided to re-bill the customer.

Holy ****tards batman? Facepalm

My boss brags that he answers over 100 emails a day... Is that supposed to make us think you're important, or hardworking? Nah, it's just a testemant to the efficiency of my slave drivers...

**** these guys are idiots.

I'm having a lot of conversations like that lately with people. This one project I just wrapped up, is run by these two catty old fat ladies. Well, one of them is pretty pragmatic, but the other one makes up for it in catitude. Since I'm involved with the project I'm on the distribution list. So every time something happens that's not in any way related to my involvement, I get to see eight back-and-forth emails between all these folks discussing it. And none of it ever matters to me, except very occasionally they'll bury some little tidbit at the very end of an email where they ask a question that's directed my way. So of course, that means I have to read through all of it just to make sure I'm not needed, which in this case is almost never.

I also know the type who gloats on "I answer over 100 emails a day" like it makes their **** hard to say it as if the rest of us couldn't possibly understand how vital their role is as smoke-signal-router. All that means is you enjoy being mired in trivialities and you suck at effective communication, so you'll likely plateau where you are.

You ever look into mining bitcoin? It seems like a useful way to go for some people. The exchange rate is pretty high, so even if you only come up with two or three a month that's still some benefit.

They say it "takes more computing power than the average person has on their home system" to do. I beg to differ: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beowulf_cluster
