On the occassion of hearing one too many complaints, she complains

I think I have discussed how much I love complaining, especially since complaining has become a serial activity on Facebook. Not only are ya miserable but you can make your friends miserable too. And also your “friends.” I may have reached a little too far into the serenity bag for many peoples’ taste; especially those…

Speaking of talking about salary…

Here’s an article about an interesting report on salary disclosure in the workplace. And I call it interesting because it backs up what I have always said (yeah, I am like that); nothing good comes from sharing salary details in the workplace. It’s kind of like eating Twinkies.

Stop being a social media idiot

I only say that because the whole “seven deadly sins” thing is a little tired. Nobody is dying due to the fact that they have pr oven that they are indeed not smarter than a fifth grader (Aha!

An itchy case of inevitable disclosure

Oh dude. How much are each of these companies going to spend on this lawsuit? I have some familiarity with California non-compete agreements and can understand erring on the side of the interest of the worker. More workers mean a healthier economy (how is that for over-simplification?). But I’m not sure Mark Hurd is what they…
