It's called a billing dept., and they use what's called the NY W/C Fee Schedule. There are agreed upon rates for every code.

Oh and saying "your moma" out of nowhere and out of context is totally retarded...especially if the co-worker you're saying it to is in his mid 40's.

Got to agree with you here, this drives me fucking nuts. Like, I have a fork in my goddamned hand, what is so fucking complicated? It's even better when they walk up on you start asking their questions, and then go, "oh, you're eating lunch, sorry to interrupt" and continue on interrupting. I wait til their finished, then look them dead in the eye for about 20-30 seconds, long enough to be a good uncomfortable silence, and then answer their question before turning back to my lunch without waiting for them to ask follow ups...

Re: The Workplace

I got a big scare at the office today (which is where I still am and I think I'm about to lose my mind)....

For a couple of hours our company's IT people had a ton of websites on lockdown. I obviously couldn't check my yahoo fantasy baseball team but I also couldn't check my Yahoo email. I couldn't get on the Post's sports page or log onto my second home, The Warpath. I couldn't get onto a client's website since it's a retail store. Basically I couldn't get anywhere, except for espn.com, which was weird.

I can understand the fantasy sports websites and ebay, amazon, etc. but Yahoo email? Our company handbook specifically says it is ok to check person email accounts from company computers as long as it doesn't interfere with work.

Anyway, all back to normal... for now.

I know it's not a big deal but this kind of thing really pisses me off. Our company was hit hard because of the economy, just like everyone else, so this is one of those little things that just makes you say "seriously, this is what our corporate office is worried about?"

Re: The Workplace

Where the heck is my stapler!?!?!?

(I actually DO have someone who swipes my stapler at least twice a month. I always know exactly which office to retrieve it from at least).

From the side of an injured worker with an UNINSURED employer once that required legal action...I can agree with the nightmare part.

Fortunately for me, my lawyer was a former WC JUDGE, so he was toast from the start. Still took a year to reach a fair settlement for me.

Re: The Workplace

My job is so unbelievable. I'll try to sum it up by first telling you about the folks I work with:

First, there is this supermodel wanna-be chick. Yeah, okay, she is pretty hot, but damn is she completely useless. The girl is constantly fixing her hair or putting on makeup. She is extremely self-centered and has never once considered the needs or wants of anyone but herself. She is as dumb as a box of rocks, and I still find it surprising that she has enough brain power to continue to breathe.

The next chick is completely the opposite. She might even be one of the smartest people on the planet. Her career opportunities are endless, and yet she is here with us. She is a zero on a scale of 1 to 10. I'm not sure she even showers, much less shaves her "womanly" parts. I think she might be a lesbian, because every time we drive by the hardware store, she moans like a cat in heat.

But the jewel of the crowd has got to be the damn stoner. And this guy is more than just your average pothead. In fact, he is baked before he comes to work, during work, and I'm sure after work. He probably hasn't been sober anytime in the last ten years, and he's only 22. He dresses like a beatnik throwback from the 1960's, and to make things worse, he brings his big dog to work. Every day I have to look at this huge Great Dane walk around half-stoned from the second-hand smoke. Hell, sometimes I even think it's trying to talk with its constant bellowing. Also, both of them are constantly hungry, requiring multiple stops to McDonald's and Burger King, every single bloody day.

Anyway, I drive these folks around in my van and we solve mysteries and stuff.



I stole this joke for the record.

Re: The Workplace

I enjoy my job for the most part. The folks I work with are pretty cool. It's a family owned business and we have several special divisions. Mine is the construction side, mostly carpentry and repair work.

The owner is an older guy, pretty short but really knowledgeable and for the most part he stays out our hair until things get really fubar'd. Then he shows up and makes us all look like dummies when he bails us out.

We got this hot chick that works in the office. Blistering hot, blonde hair, wears short skirts everyday. I'm not real sure what she does at work but I do know she's serviced every guy in the company, myself included. She's pretty much the company whore.

We got these two other idiots that work in a different division, one of em sleeps all day at his work station and generally doesn't do a damn thing. He's part of every fubar situation we have here. The other is a damn pessimistic sunuvabitch. He hates everything, just the other day I told him I'd have no problem offing his emo ass with a claw hammer.

Anyways I have to get back fixing all the houses that Gargamel and Azrael fucked up. I hate those guys.

Not as funny as the first and stolen again.

I think you missed the joke. Maybe someone can help you here on the board.

Re: The Workplace

One of my workplace nightmares unfolded on Saturday night: RUNNING INTO TO WORK PEOPLE OUTSIDE OF WORK!!!!!!!!

My family and my folks went out for dinner and then decide to stop for ice cream, big mistake. Who rolls in but the most annoying person in my office with her husband and son. All she does is talk about her two year old son nonstop and sure enough that is what she did on Sat. night. I thought at one point my dad was going to claw his ears off.

We get back in the car after eating our ice cream as fast possible and my mom says "you have to work with her everyday?" I said "everyday", as a tear rolled down my cheek.

I hate seeing folks out side of work expect for a small handful that I consider friends, it is just so awkward and I hate to think I have to listen to them and I am not being paid to do so!
