Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

In our office, all motions before appellate courts are required to be submitted to the unit that coordinates all civil litigation in the state for review and comment prior to filing. As part of my institution of "Best Practices" in my unit, I review anything submitted to them. Given the deadlines being imposed, I work with my attorneys so we are on the same page during drafting and work hard to provide quick substantive turnarounds.

That's the background.

Attorney has a filing due to the central unit Monday afternoon. Gets it to me Friday morning. I work on it most of Friday (around a court appearance I had), including an hour in his office discussing legal theory, I work on it all weekend. Get it to him Monday morning with instructions to see me if he has questions.

I ask him about it today and he says it was submitted. First, he did so without cc'ing me -in violation of office protocol. I look up what he submitted on the system and find that he completely ignored my significant revisions and switched back to a legal theory I told him not to take.

If you disagree with my review, bring it to me, discuss it with me, I get that it's your name on the pleading but I am responsible for this unit's litigation quality.

I got no problem with folks disagreeing with me. Just don't f'ing try to sneak something past me. Beyond angry right now.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

Grinding my own gears here (not as dirty as it sounds) - I really REALLY need to look for a new job but I can't shake a ridiculous level of laziness on my part.

Our company got a new CEO last summer and he's really starting to push a lot of changes that make no sense for what our unit does. We're going through a massive re-org and they're moving us to a crappier location just south of Baltimore in order to consolidate offices. It was arbitrarily decided that the move is going to happen by 12/1 (should be a fun week before Thanksgiving) even though the new space won't be ready by then.
Plus, due to the re-org we basically have to reapply for our current jobs. The company is using the guise that it wants to make sure that people are doing the jobs they want to do and are most qualified for, but our re-defined job descriptions haven't even been published yet. Basically, it's like they're trying to start a brand new company and ignoring the fact that they are currently running a very large existing one.

I wonder if Burger King is hiring?!?

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

i am also grinding my own gears.

I really enjoy it when you pull into a parking spot and when you step out of your car, you step into a puddle of coffee or soda the person who parked there right before you decided to pour out.

i have done that twice now the past week. just poured out my old coffee right where i know someone else will pull up and try to step out of their driver's side door.

WTF is going on with me. another 10 years from now, will i be so beaten down and bitter from working and rush hour that i stop following the rules of politeness and civility all together?

winter is coming.

winter is coming.
once, i parked just outside the door of a gas station. i opened my door, stepped out, and stepped directly onto a beer can - attracting the attention of the 2 police officers drinking coffee by the front door.

i walked right past them inside the store, hoping they would know that the can was not mine. i was in line when one of them walked up to me and asked "this is a dumb question, but did that beer can come from your car?"

"no."

"have a nice night."

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

someone rummaged through my car the other night and took ..... my wheel lock key. it looks like a lug nut and sits in this nylon lil pouch that says "wheel lock key" on it.

they didnt take anything else. the only thing of value is my car seat.

someone also stole one of my trash cans .. again why? i assume it was some construction guys doing a job near by.

actually they did take all my change, which was mostly pennies anyway.

If your rims are somewhere between average and excellent, you should put new wheel locks on that thing asap. That sucks man.
