  1. I have been watching more of the Weather Channel lately. Cannot stand Stephanie Abrams. Cantore is a blowhard, but I tend to tune him out. SA though grates on my last good nerve. She will sometimes ask stupid questions, then turn around and act like the expert. Why has she been promoted like the lead meteorologist? Almost like Cantore’s successor??
  2. Cantore was somewhere in FL today I think. Sorry, I cannot think of the name of the one guy now who seems to always be at the storm epicenter, but he was in New Orleans earlier this week. I think maybe he’s now along the coast in MS. I have been watching the morning show, and Stephanie annoys me to no end. I guess I am used to Cantore now and tune him out. Why do they continue to push Stephanie as one of their lead mets??
  3. Got a call this week from mom, yelling again (of course). Your brother is sick! I knew it would happen! He does too much!! (He does her grocery shopping and runs errands for her. I would say maximum time per week is maybe 2 to 3 hours. He stops at her house on his way home from work). So he we went to his doctor, very slight fever, got covid test, which was negative. He got a written excuse to be off work for a few days, rest of the week? Somehow, this was,again, all my fault. Ok, whatever. He had gone to Mom’s on Friday, got her a few groceries. I should sayI have stayed at her house for a week, working remotely from there, several times. Whatever I did (cleaned or making meals), was never correct. The last time I left her food that she just needed to reheat because she had been complaining she had not had a decent meal in ages. So she complained I made too much food, plus she doesn’t like or want leftovers. I said fine, toss it then. She said then that I was overreacting. Flash coward to yesterday. I get a panicked call from mom, cannot get in touch with brother. Ok what do you want me to do? Of course, it was my fault (back to old rant that I didn’t want to live with her). I asked if I should call him? YES!! So I call, leave vm that mom is crying, freaking out, please call her or me. I call her back with what I did. I asked how many times she called. One time to landline which he just had disconnected. It said number not available!! Well sure it did (duh). She called his cell one time. He talked and then nothing. Uh he says his name when it goes to vm. I wait, at least 30 minutes, then thought, why don’t I text him? Huge mistake. Within a few minutes get text back, I called mom. Mind your own damn business. Excuse me? I was asked/begged to contact you. I started crying then, what had I done so wrong? I called mom later and she had her phone off of the hook. I am going to let her call me. So done with both of them. I was reading something last night that said don’t carry stuff along. Forgive, etc. So I have decided to forgive but not forget (and keep my distance). They both treat everyone else nicely, except me. I honestly give up with them. They have shown me who they are multiple times, and they aren’t going to change.
  4. I would have rather had the drag queens perform than have Lu “sing”.
  5. We have been super busy lately, onboarding new clients and other stuff. The Dip will be 70 next year, so trying to keep that in mind as she drives me crazy and mucks up stuff. Sadly it’s some of the same errors over and over again. Today was a shitshow. One question after another from all different areas. Invited to a meeting I wanted to avoid. A BA who handles projects (really doesn’t do much of anything, always confused and needs a ton of help always, gets the easiest assignments because I don’t think they trust her with anything else) wanted me on this damned call. I got dragged into calling in because she didn’t know shit once again. Started off a year ago with a research request from a client manager asking what was going on with abc. I responded saying it was due to processing teams not doing closing protocols correctly. He needed to get reports ran, get the stuff that could cause problems to those teams to fix. He did nothing. He submitted something else a few weeks ago for reporting; nothing existed so I worked all day cobbling together something for him - then he bitched that it should be filtered down. It was in Excel, so duh, filter it yourself. He finally submitted a project which was given to Ms “I Dunno”. Now it’s crunch time wants the wheel reinvented and the processing folks said they are too busy, cannot do, it’s a system issue, has to be automated. Not happening, not unless someone in Tech is Jeanie or Samantha. Then they hinted that the team I am on dropped the ball. No, I have the receipts, asswipes. Then “Dunno” said she would have to talk to our boss. Go ahead. If she tries to push me under the bus, buckle up buttercup. Then she says well Tech has to do something. No they do not. Plus she’s burned bridges with them. A couple of projects were canceled; she never notified them, so they wasted a ton of time. She was going to email them. I had already called someone and submitted a ticket. There was other assorted asshattedness abounding. I wish I could retire now. We are WFH thru 2020. One location we deal with all the time closed their office to all WFH. I think we’ll be WFH into 2021 since there is no way for us to be 6 feet apart. Our cubicles are all squished together with narrow aisles.
  6. Watching episode now couple looking to stay at an island off of Colombia. The guy had never been there before but they decided upon that locale for their honeymoon with a budget of 9k. I don’t understand it. Is there no one else there? Does the 8.5k they spent include maid service, meals, drinks? Not for me. Guess she was originally from Columbia, which makes sense for the locale at least.
  7. There’s a way to make basic finger food elevated into more of a gourmet dish. I think this is all a setup for next season. Malia’s bf will be chef, Bugs chief stew, Malia bosun, with Captain Micromanager. They will have foils in the rest of the crew. I would love Sandy try that micromanaging with Ben. I would really love her to be stuck with Jenna as chief stew, Adam as chef, plus to drive her more nuts - stews — with the mermaid chick (can’t remember her name) and the other one who couldn’t even put the correct amount of detergent in the washing machine.
  8. How was Terri Conn not let go? She is awful. I don’t understand how she can be so bad in front of the camera, as she was on ATWT for a long time. I know I saw her on a Law & Order Criminal Intent, probably was on other shows. Makes me wonder if it took multiple takes for her to get a scene right. Kerstink needed to go, too. MBR is close to retirement age (I think she’s just a year or so younger than I am). Most corporations would prefer to let a person retire rather than let them go, if it’s reasonably close to actual retirement. A ding ding I have to work with is close to 70, she’s only retiring after 70 to get full SS payments, plus she carries hubby on her insurance (he is slightly younger). Anyhow, management has sort of left her skate for a few years as they kept thinking she’ll retire soon.
  9. Well we were told we had to schedule all vacation time a few weeks back, due to upcoming client events. I have a few days off now. Day 2 of the Dip texting me. Beyond clueless. Takes something and twists it, not understanding the real question or situation. Today boss was questioning the setup on something. I said oh about abcd? Nope. Just garbled messages and some other tech guys working on it now. I texted one of the guys. Two separate issues. One we do nothing with, the other is being handled by project folks, we think it was an oversight and it isn’t a huge deal. The other day she didn’t know how to do something. Over the weekend she had asked me if I could check a system after some network updates were done. Well she actually sent me a to and from time range. The times were wrong. I went back to read the document and it was start 7pm completion 10 pm- CDT. We are on ET. She listed times as 6 to 9 pm. No and I needed to check after the updates were done not during the updates. So 11 pm our time. I had stupidly started after 10, and got errors so called a tech guy, who then said this isn’t right. He almost put in an issue alert with another group. I checked again after 11 and everything was ok. I let her know that she listed it out wrong etc. , and got basically an “oh well” response. Boss was asking today if set up or review was wrong. The folks reviewing my set ups (Dip and possibly the laziest human ever-who takes something that would or should take at least a few hours to review- and is done within 15 to 20 minutes) do such a horrible job. I have to go back and review it again. So sick of it. Of course, cannot quit now. The lazy bones is a friend of the boss. Shows up as “away” or offline more than available. Gets away with murder. Doubt we’re going back into the office any time soon, so that is a plus. One location is going to 100% WFH, office is being closed. I would welcome that but some functions have tone done in our office (nothing I do though). Stay safe everyone!
  10. I saw part of an early RHOBH episode, and Jax was a waiter for an LVP tea party at her house. The ladies were acting like he was so hot. He wasn’t all that, but he was 1000% better looking than now. Not due to aging, just so bloated and sweaty looking now. I also saw an early VPR episode, and again I was stunned by the difference. Everyone else did not appear to have changed so dramatically. He can go and take his fake Kentucky fried wifey with him. Good luck on the unemployment line.
  11. I just completed an online feedback question at their site. If anyone reads it, they won't be happy campers. Too bad. In business you under promise and over deliver. So if someone asks me how quickly I can get a project done, I add a little cushion time to my anticipated delivery time. If I complete it earlier, it's all gravy. How do they not build in new delivery times now? Just saying oh these unprecedented times blah blah blah...... we're trying to stay within 7 to 10 days...... Might as well say we have no clue when you will get your order. At least they would be honest.
  12. So on May 12 I ordered some tilapia -looked good to me. I am not really a fish person, but wanted something different. Q has estimated delivery date of May 15. As of today, order is still in process. Emailed the Q as wait time was long and I was working. Got some BS form letter email response. I just tried to call again and got message they were too busy go to automated system. Either be honest that it will take weeks to ship out or do not sell those items on air. I can still get Amazon items quicker. Got my favorite slippers within 3 days. And if an item is delayed, I get an email or text with an apology and a new estimated delivery date. Q is going to lose customers by not being upfront and proactive.
  13. I had to turn it off after a while today. Not a huge Alex and Simon fan, but I wanted to slap Lu on how she talked down to Alex. She was so rude and condescending. I would have told Kelly to back the fuck off and to not touch me - as she did to Alex. And she could shove all of the shhhhh's where the sun doesn't shine. She really said Alex was weird or acting weird? The person who had a huge breakdown on Scary Island is telling someone else they are weird?? Then whined that her henna tattoo was messed up?? Have several seats Ms Satchels of Gold.
  14. I watched an episode last night, one wife worked in Westerville, a suburb of Columbus. I live in the metro, so I continued watching, trying to figure out the locations. No way did that realtor show them those homes originally. One was on the west side of town, which would make the commute to Westerville a real bitch, even if only 2 days a week. The other house I think was more on the south side. Made zero sense. I went out to home sites and there were plenty in their price range, older homes is what I looked at since they wanted character, etc. I found the house they chose. The pictures on the site were stunning. The show had it as a major fixer, but it was all redone on pictures posted in the sale shots in August 2019. The wall colors were different so maybe the HH couple had repainted; I would have left it as it was in the pictures as it was truly stunning. The kitchen had state of the art appliances, was obviously remodeled. I don't understand why they need the fakery. I started to watch tonight with the guy and his girlfriend of 6 months. She was ridiculously demanding. Wanted to turn a small bedroom into a closet for herself. I did not get the sense she was contributing to the purchase. Turned it off as I wanted to punch the tv.
  15. Ramona putting all that food out onto the patio when everyone got there - why? None of these bitches really eat that much. I guess some way to justify the drinking? Oh I'm eating cheese and crackers so I can have a glass (or two) of wine. Then when she had a hissy saying oh she'd not hired anyone for two days (as in maids). So wrong. Any hostess would pick that shit up herself and not make a big deal over it. Not classy at all. Tinsley and Leah were like oh no problem, we can help clean up - except all Ramona did was drink more Pinot. Then because Tinsley had a bunch of stuff she was carrying, some utensil fell out. Ramona made some snide crack about it. You can't pick up a fork, you lazy bitch? Then she said something about these girls had no idea about how to act as a hostess? They are NOT the hostess. You should have been the one to pick it all up - or hire someone to do so. You do NOT make your guests clean up and then bitch at them because it's not to your liking. Lu would have bitched no matter what room she got. It was for two nights? Big fucking deal. I would have been glad to get away from the craziness. Plus, if Lu is really drinking on the sly - perfect place to exit or sneak in a drink. Maybe the producers were setting her up - seeing if she would try to sneak in a drink down in the lower level. Tons of people have tattoos and it's not a sign that you're trashy. You can act trashy, as evidenced by the old broads on this show, without having a single tat. My boss, a SVP has tats all the way up his neck, and 'sleeves' on each arm. Co-worker has just about every inch of her arms and legs in tats. They need to get out of their bubble (Ramona, Dorinda, Sonja). And if Leah isn't bothered by it, then no need for anyone else to care. Probably got it in her younger days, thinking it was so cool. Dorinda is jealous of Tinsley. Tinsley can change the course of her life, while I think Dorinda feels trapped. She wants her old life back, and is realizing that ship has sailed. And Tinsley needs to tell Dorinda to stop with the inquisition now. If Dorinda gets all teary and blah blah blah renovations - I'd just sorry you're having issues, but no reason to take out your frustrations and anger (and jealousy) on me, so stop it now. And doubtful that Dorinda is having to pinch pennies to get the place fixed. As someone asked, what is the renovation keeping her from doing in her 'normal' life? Naps? Drinking?
