i just wanted to let everyone know that as of last monday i no longer work for fedex. i was put in a situation where i didn't have anyother choice. either i worked to close every day with no way to get home to my kid or leave the job. so i left. but i still get the feeling that my cm had no right to force me to leave like she did. she said,"either i work the schedule she made and be here on time every day or resign". that is what she said. so i left. i had no other choice. i had to move back home to my parents and it was a three hour trip each way to get the the center i was working at. i am now in va and the center i was working at was in md. so now i am looking for a new job. i didn't have another job in the line when i left. if anyone can suggest anything to me that would be great.

Hey, anyone else having the problem where the receipt printers for the FPOS stations are printing at two speeds - slow and even slower? If so, did you have to call tech support, or what?

i thought i'd just stop by and say i haven't had to deal with any drama lately. but i also haven't been to work since last week. i have to take a personal leave of absence from work. things on my end are starting to turn around. i feel a whole lot less stressed since i haven't been to work. that is all.

This group seems to be fully toasted, and the dark side has prevailed.

I leave with my latest work, "Untitled Monument to an Outstanding Experience."

AKA, the Purple Turd.

Goodbye, friends.

I don't post often because I'm busy keeping up with the politics and trying to figure out a way to run the store around them. Anyways, if anyone has been around here long enough to remember the Replica trailer that was once posted. I had reached out to the guy who made it a while back asking about it and yesterday he told me he uploaded the entire 30 minute video which to my knowledge was not previously out there.

So hopefully this makes someones day!

Last week, I was walking into a Best Buy when I passed a mother heading out. She had three kids with her, one a boy about 2 or 3. (I suck at judging these things.) As I passed, she said something so bizarre and random that it took me a few steps to register what she said, and I burst out laughing.

"You have to say 'excuse me' when you poop your pants!"

Maybe that's her metaphor for passing gas or something, but damn that was bizarre...

That orange "Goo Gone" stuff will fairly easily get gum out of carpet.

Well, I did it. I signed up and now work for The Big Red Easy, the evil arch-enemy of The Company Formally Known As Kinko's (RIP). And it's different.

The downside: A bit of a pay cut (over a decade as a Kinkoid did add up), fewer hours and benefits (now I'm part-time).

The upside:
-- Part of a team at work (I'm NEVER alone in the store; I spent about half my hours at F-Off solo in the center), which means I have people I can ask for help when needed
-- Don't get called for stupid questions at home
-- A huge decrease in stress
-- Corporate BS is down by about three levels of magnitude
-- Don't have to deal with shit-heel Express driver with Napoleon complex
-- Actually get to show off my technical expertise in far more areas
-- Get to see a LOT of my old customers (Big Red is almost across the street from my old center) and hear how much more it sucks since I left
-- I'm occasionally working with Moose again (there's a scary thought)
-- Actual employee discount on stuff
-- Considerably fewer psychopathic/sociopathic customers
-- More chance to actually help customers in meaningful fashion (I had one lady who was in rehab for repetitive motion injuries, and set her up with several products that could really help her recover her productivity, like an ergonomic keyboard)
-- Big Red has much, much, much cooler commercials; F-Off hasn't had good ones since the Burt Reynolds Superbowl ones and the days of Kenny The Kinkoid

So far, I like it. I like it quite a bit.

Of course, this puts me in a rather awkward position, as I am the nominal "leader" of this group (well, technically, "maintainer") and now I work for one of their biggest competitors. I will cheerfully pass on the reins to an actual current employee (I'm sorry, "Team Member") of F-Off if anyone would like to volunteer to do so. Or, if they like, stay on as "co-maintainer."

Somehow, though, I've gotten the vibe that no one is overly interested in taking that on. And, quite frankly, it's so little work that I don't mind. But I just wanna put the matter out there.

That Was Easy!
