new thread ping
Good morning everyone.
Thanks for new thread; what a lovely picture to start out with!
Well, sl, we got rid of our little dept. pet the other day, so maybe there is hope for you. She walked off the job, after being sent to training (and costing the company thousands). She is moving east to her supposed 6 figure job. All this after she dumped her bf while he is fighting in Iraq!! She had a total meltdown. Unfortunately, as per usual, we were left holding the bag and the assignments (which she didn't do even when she honored us with her presence). Good riddance.
Where is my coffee this morning *sniff, sniff*...
When prices go down that is a recession?
Its all confusing to me I just never took the time to figure out recession, depression, inflation etc
Does this mean price in all areas will be coming down?

Chinese-made bras, blouses and T-shirts are piling up at customs checkpoints across Europe, having already bumped up against import limits set earlier this year. The European Union has sent a team of officials to Beijing to negotiate a way out of the crisis. But European retailers are just as annoyed at the quotas as the Chinese. (Source: The Economist)

Faced with a choice between knowns and unknowns, income-minded investors may fall for a seductive illusion. They put their money in bonds, or other investments such as certificates of deposit, to gain the promise of being paid back a known sum at a specified time. They reject bond mutual funds because funds, with their continuously managed portfolios, have no maturity date. (Source: Bloomberg)

thanks grannie and BQ for pinging me to the new thread.
One coffee coming up...I slept in today, lol!
Hope you can stop by!
Gran I really like your new color scheme it is interesting and gives a new aura!:)
Nice Satureday Brunch!
You weren't supposed to tell Nully!
This is the bridge at Pedrido which I visited a couple of days ago, it has such a vast expanse of sand at low tide.
Oh nice! Donuts too!
well....this must be the week....my co-worker (another paralegal) quit yesterday....left a note for her boss (who's been out helping an outside attorney in a trial) and just walked out. She has a different boss than I...someone I used to have to work...I almost quit, too, a year ago; my current boss decided then, I think, it would be a good idea to have me work just for him, lol....yesterday, he handed me $200 before I went to lunch and said "thank you" for all your hard work. He's very nice; my-coworker's boss is not only ungrateful, but incompentent.
Another attorney put a call in to my co-worker and said if she wants to call him to discuss this over the weekend, she may....I thought that was very nice of him....my co-worker doesn't even work for him.
If I had turnovers, those would have been on the "menu" too, lol! : )
Sounds like you have some turnover at the office...
did I just say that?
oh....and a judge, the other day, removed her from a law guardian assignment, and reassigned another lawyer to the case....one of the attorneys in our office.
Yeah, and then the manager blamed us for not saying anything about all the other jobs this chick had been applying to and getting offers from. Well, it's not my place or business to go rat people out; in addition, I am not a supervisor. This is EXACTLY the crap that happens when there are quotas for hiring "minorities." This one was not only a young college grad, but female AND "Hispanic." Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out once there is a Hisp manager, and she only hires Hispanics (5 out of 5 in the last two years), there is something fishy going on.
I thought quotas and affirmative action stuff went away - apparently people still can't get jobs on their own merit.
With any luck he'll remove her from every case his court hears...
I thought I dealt quite well with Miss Congeniality today. She decided she was going to play her little "I'm not going to talk to you" game. She also tried the "I'm not going to give you the satisfaction of doing anything for me" game. Instead of playing her power games and trying to find ways to persuade her to talk, when she said "I don't have anything else to say." I said, "neither do I. You can go." She stormed out and slammed the door. She will be really annoyed when she finds out that I'd already hung out with her son for awhile. This is without a doubt the most paranoid, defensive person I've had to work with in along time!
My other case made my day, though. The mom really appreciated me taking her down to spend time with her baby in neonatal ICU What a precious little girl. Kinda took the edge of the nasty b*tch with the attitude.
I slept in today, too. Now here it is 10:30, I'm still on my first cup of coffee, and I need to work. Got a bunch of stuff to do before starting a new week.
any with greater luck...she'll stop pretending to be a lawyer and quit the practice.....she really is incompetent; I'm surprised she hasn't yet be sued for malpractice....I wouldn't doubt by some point in time she will be. The other two attorneys in my office know how much I dislike her...but they know it's because there's no respect for her...she acts like a know-it-all, but really knows nothing....she dumps the whole case on the paralegal to do everything on the case; all she really does is sign her name to the documents; there's no direction from her, because she doesn't know how to do anything a lawyer is supposed to know. That's partly why the paralegal quit. It's quite frustrating. She's ignorant to the fact that she's a laughingstock in the area....
so cute pic!!!
LOL...get her!!! You hung out with your-co-worker's son? At the office, did she bring him in?
I just started my second, lol, and it's 11:40 a.m.
so....you're going in to the office today? : (
Besides; I never realized there was a dingbat quota.
that's a cool bridge pic; I love bridges....don't know why. When I was in NYC with my daughter a couple months ago...she was also fascinated with them...took a couple of the Brooklyn Bridge....
Sounds just like the dingbat, only the dingbat is making potential life and death decisions, and the rest of us are spending a lot of time running damage control. On top of that, she has absolutely NO people skills.
Maybe she'll run for office?
This is just a little local bridge not a famous as the Brooklyn Bridge. It has the advantage for me is that I can see it, way in the distance, from my window.
I did take a pic of the Brooklyn Bridge years ago, actually 40 years ago when my wife was pregnant. A great picture of New York thru the steel support cables.
Why are there so many dingbats? : )
Because the opposite if Libby's tagline is true...
One day, perhaps you can post some of those old pics of NY...I've got an old one, taken from the crown of the Statue of Liberty, looking at Manhattan....you can see the WTC...I wish the quality of the photo was better...but it was quite a thrill being up in Miss Liberty.
I also like the bridge in San Francisco...have you ever seen that one? (I forget the name of it right now.)
She's a cutie and look at that smile
The Golden Gate Bridge - Yes I have pics of that also but I would have to search to find them. My daughter is in San Francisco at the moment.
Yes, the Golden Gate Bridge...that's absolutely beautiful to see at night.
I always had fun in San Francisco....haven't been there in years...it's beautiful there....I've taken pictures of Lombardo Street....that's been used in movies...it's a steep road and winds back and forth....looks very cool from down below looking up....but it's not a place I'd want to live! ; )
I also like dams....have you seen the Hoover Dam? I took a tour there, once; it was quite fascinating to learn about.
Since I had to go anyway, I decided to kill two birds with one stone and I took another of my clients with me. She had her baby in Little Rock because she was high risk. The baby was 6 weeks premature. The mom got out last Sunday, and the baby will have to stay until she gains enough weight to be released, but it isn't easy for her to get to Little Rock very often. She doesn't drive and her husband works. So anyway, I got to see the little darling. One of the prettiest, most perfect babies I've ever seen, and very healthy. And she smiles, almost laughs. She is just a delightful baby. I left that mom at the hospital while I went to deal with Miss Congeniality. I saw her son when he first got there from school and talked to him awhile. His mom is p*ssy about everything. It is just ingrained in her personality. She is one of those people you just want to pop upside the head on general principles.
The dingbat is the coworker. She was hired as a county supervisor, but was quickly demoted, but because the probationary period passed, they can't get rid of her easily. She still fancies herself above most of the jobs the rest of us do....the jobs that she was hired to supervise. She had no experience, but she had a master's degree. I've often wondered if it was a mail order one. Anyway, everyone who has to deal with her wants her gone. She is a serious liability, in more ways than one. Her supervisor knows that, but her butt is on the line, too, so she has to make sure she covers all the legal bases before she tries to get rid of her, so we're all having to spend a lot of time documenting examples of her incompetence, and believe me, there are plenty of examples to document. So there is that, in addition to "helping" her do her job (which, in reality, means doing it for her), fixing her screw ups AND covering our own butts (as a team) because our reputation is on the line.....and doing our own jobs!
I'm afraid I must. The good thing is that I should be able to work without distractions, as long as the on call worker doesn't come in with an emergency.
Is she single?????????
