    Me in the job, lacking the social skills to adjust a changing work environment. The women were just as good as the men. I remember one particular incident, a salesgirl had stolen a sale from someone else, taken the call, and instead of passing it over to the sales person who had done the work and quote just took the order and marked it up as hers. So I collated the paperwork, the original salesperson’s quote, time of call etc. and confronted her with it, she denied it and ran to the ladies room in tears, cue a rush of women rushing in to console and curse me. Wait five minutes and out they pour, one after the other giving me the evil eye. Half an hour passes before I get the call from the sales manager to go to the office. He said that he couldn’t have this sort of thing happening, be more diplomatic etc. Late eighties, the office dynamics were changing all over.

    We are complicated social animals, there’s no way that we can be honest to people we are in close proximity to all the time. Mid to late eighties I was a salesman in an office and on the road for a firm that sold all types of ferrous and non ferrous metal to engineering firms. When I started it was all men in the sales office and all women in the accounts and admin roles. Then the world began to change, and as a low level sales manager I learnt (or didn’t) that you just could not call a woman a liar or front her up about a mistake she had made as we were used to as men. I didn’t last long for one reason or another.

    I’m quite scared of bears, it’s their range of skills, they run bloody fast, superb sense of smell, seems like they really hold a grudge as well.

    Then it’s only fair the boss should be able to tell the worker his feelings about him. Cue a lot of walkouts and fistfights.

    I remember working in a factory situation, I found that little gripes and personal dislikes would fester and get out of proportion. Being older (like Squish) is better as you’re more able show emotional intelligence.

    Horseshit. Every time someone posts a workpics thread, do you not think they’re hoping a few peeps will chime in and compliment or ask a few questions? What’s the difference? Why do people post videos and pictures if not to impress or get feedback?

    I understand the “it it ain’t broke...” mantra. But if it makes it better, if it improves or simplifies things, or makes things cheaper or more accessible to everyone, isn’t that a good thing? Do you remember when you were young and old farts would decry all modern stuff as pointless and unnecessary, because they were scared and stuck in their ways. Did you ever swear to yourself that you wouldn’t be like that when you got to be old(er)? Anyway, not having a go, just remembering my old boss, if he didn’t do it or use it when he was younger, it wasn’t worth doing. Ie. Top handled saws, chippers, blowers, radios in the work truck, chainsaw oil (bought cheap engine oil) tipper trucks.

    It’s in different languages, It works in danish on your computer because you’ve downloaded it in Danish. It’ll work in English or many other languages. If you’re determined not to see it’s uses, then sure it’s stupid.

    Ok (nice to see you back Stig btw) This company has divided the world up into 3 meter square pieces, each one of those squares has a three word name. Adjoining squares do not have similar names. Download it, it’s free (not Bob obvs as the Illuminati are after him)

    I can see it being handy for tree mapping as it names an area of 3m square, for directions to a client, he just says I live at bear.gate.yolk I punch it in and voila! No multiple options or house or road name changes. Basically (for Cory and Jed) they have divided the world into squares of 3meter by 3meter, and each square has three words to identify it, 56 trillion square apparently.
