Happy Friday Quakesters!

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Happy Valentine's Day!

My Valentines and I are going to try out a restaurant that we've never been to tonight. No sitter, so we are a Valentine's trio. I hope it is good; it is boarding-house style and the reviews are pretty good.

Enjoy! I'm going out for dinner tomorrow to a newer place I've never been and am super excited about. It's labeled as Peruvian, but really it's more South American, because they have traditional dishes from different countries.

That sounds great! I love South American food as long as it isn't too terribly spicy...my old guts can't take the heat anymore..lol.

My little town is just starting to get culture like that with various Asian and Indian places springing up. There are no real South American places here yet. We do have an over-abundance of Tex-Mex and a few genuine Mexican places, but nothing farther south as of yet.

I hope you have a great time and enjoy!

I love South American food too. And Spanish food. And Mexican. I cook some latin dishes myself too. I've made ropa vieja a few times, which they serve at this restaurant. I might have to order that, I love it. They have fun cocktails too like mojitos, sangria, etc. I really hope they have caipirinhas. I usually have to go to a Brazilian place for that. Those will get you buzzed real quick like.

Tom here I quit smoking normal cigarettes and replaced it with IQOS.It's 95% less harmful than normal ones.I can't quit nicotine totally since it is strongly related to drug it take for my depression problems.My doctor told me that after 2 years of smoking ,sudden quitting of nicotine can have catastrophic consequences.Also nicotine in my case eases depression symptoms.I like this IQOS stuff.I have white device that heats tobacco in heet.I already feel like all of that poison that was in my body is leaving :) And what's great about this thing it makes me despise normal cigarettes like never before tounge

Guys,

I just attended a local emergency planning committee meeting in Central Texas this afternoon. We are about to be fucked. Do any final preps this weekend!

As we all know, only US Citizens are being allowed to come back from China and are being placed under federal quarantine. However, there are hundreds or thousands of people from China, who have green cards and/or visas, getting flights into Mexico and crossing the southern border legally. There is no way to vet these people. This is happening everyday. This discussion was held off the record after the minutes of the meeting were done being recorded.

The large majority of these people crossing the border are being denied housing by their families due to fear of the illness, so they are staying wherever they can, close to the border until they are sure they are not sick. There are scores of possible cases of Coronavirus in the Rio Grande Valley due to this. Look for the US Border Patrol and Customs at our southern border to be wearing the full PPE in the next couple days.

Think about what you would do, especially if you ARE ALREADY SICK in China, where all the hospitals are already maxed out, and you have US Green Card or Visa. You would do whatever possible to get back to the USA.

Uggggggggggh.

How do I run into these people? They take over the management position, and I'm forced out, and after doing the majority of the project. And *they* get control. She's stealing my project after I wasted all that time and effort on it. And you can't sue for it. This is fucked up.

She's called in sick twice this year for two full separate weeks, cancelled on the conference SHE was supposed to go to (and after only having a little cough left that Monday). She's complained about meetings and how they're not relevant to her, she doesn't send specific enough daily status updates of her work (this is a remote position). She was playing on Twitter all day while sick instead of working (gee she wasn't sick enough to not get to her computer now, was she?)

Just this past week:

We've disagreed. I've sent her questions...3 very FAIR, short questions, I might add, asking for clarification on certain points for my benefit, and about her own contradictions. And she sends me a 17-paragraph email back scathing me, calling me names, and accusing me of everything under the sun that's not true. And, she CC's the bosses. I keep my cool and don't respond (as much as I'd like to), but I'm the one who still loses.

After today's meeting with her lies, and her dismissive, demanding attitude, I had enough and sent documented evidence, proving that everything she was saying about me and what I was supposedly doing is a lie, and the boss still says for me to do what she asked today. My sources for not doing her recommendations were places like UCLA, and even her own source - that she recommended, by the way - that says what I'm doing is correct. Even one of the head honchos of our entire field who stated that what I'm doing is correct, and how she still lied in the meeting today about THAT.

I give up. I give the fuck up. The handwriting's on the wall. No, I'm not fired. But my word means nothing.

Gonna get another job immediately, hopefully at my conference next week. Happy freaking Valentines Day.

 Quoting: Tom Pillar 78478353


Good for you! I had to google IQOS (it's a vape device for others about to search). I do worry about some of the stuff people are vaping. Not sure about there, but here in the US some people have gotten very ill with sticky lungs. They narrowed down most of those cases to mostly off the market vape pods containing THC. And they also took all flavored nicotine vapes off the shelves here, from the big brands too (by flavored, I mean anything but tobacco or menthol flavor). But I do wonder what the long term effects of any vape juice might be. They are so new, we really don't know yet.

Not trying to rain on your parade, I think it's great you have let go of the cigarettes and feel better for it. Congrats!

Sorry CS. Unfortunately, if she's your superior or supervisor (I wasn't clear on that), then you probably just need to accept it and let it go.

I don't fully know what you do for a living (don't need to), but based on what I've heard in the past, it sounds like you could ultimately go out on your own - perhaps freelance, do consulting, have your own business, or something of that nature. Then you're in charge of your own destiny and don't have to deal with assholes. That's the direction I'm working towards. I've turned a corner and am now at an age where I have no patience for others' bullshit.

Don't let it ruin your weekend. Play some video games and let out some angst!
