But again, my direct ask was "check on her. I'm concerned for her wellness."

Things are looking more and more up for me. I mentioned to my new boss that I'd like to move into a real office instead of just having a desk back in the shop. She thinks it's a great idea, since I'll be managing more and will have to be more in the loop on the goings on instead of hiding in the back of the building all the time.
I got the official word this morning that I am getting an actual office. No more sitting in the garage area with the rest of maintenance. :thumb:

Just finished open enrollment, and will be cashing out 120 hours. It's paid in July, so that month will be a *checks notes* 4.5 paycheck month for me.

I always enjoy them because it's like "add me on LinkedIn so we can remain connected."

No, how about you add me, you're leaving us and if we were that impactful we'd have already been connected. Buzz off.

Jamie Dimon, fed up with Zoom calls and remote work, says commuting to offices will make a comeback
https://www.cnbc.com/amp/2021/05/04/jam ... eback.html
Jamie Dimon is no fan of the new remote work structure that has taken hold during the coronavirus pandemic.

The JPMorgan Chase chairman and CEO has already told his U.S. employees they should begin getting used to returning this month with the goal of having 50% of workers rotating through offices by July. While he's fine with the greater flexibility allowed by employees working from home part time, he said Tuesday that's no substitute for being at the office.

"We want people back to work, and my view is that sometime in September, October it will look just like it did before," Dimon said at The Wall Street Journal CEO Council. "And everyone is going to be happy with it, and yes, the commute, you know people don't like commuting, but so what."
This guys sounds like a pleasant NTP66.

Ok, boomer. What does "we want people back to work" mean? What does he think his employees have been doing for over a year?

Taking dumps while on Zoom calls, apparently.

I'm ready for you'll to go back to the office. That perk I have has lost some of its luster. :slug:

Moved into my new office this morning. The back wall has an 8' whiteboard and it makes me irrationally happy.

Second week in the new management role, and it's a total change of pace to what I was doing. Opening job positions for hiring, interviewing, and trying to get up to speed while handling still pieces of my old job I"m trying to drop.

I was personally burning out, but this has re-kindled my fire a bit because it seems much better on this side of the house, than the dev side.
