Sorry I haven’t been here, been too tired to do much but come home and fall in the bed. And the times I wasn’t here, well, let’s just say I had other thing so do. I could have been here but. . . . .
I’ve been busy on Twitter. Keeping up with my real profile and my story profile. Apparently there are folks on Twitter and make money on Twittering. I have not figured it out yet. But I believe it’s about spamming peoples page and stuff. A lot of that goes on there. I personally had to take a machete to some of it on my own page.
I had stupidly joined one of those following groups. There are groups on Twitter that you can join if you don’t have a lot of friends who are already on Twitter to follow you. So you join one of the groups like the Followers Express by clicking “follow” and they and their group of followers will follow you. Only you don’t know who is in that group. I of course wound up with a lot of spam which literally took over my page and I couldn’t see where my entries began and ended!
Then some of the so-called members of said group used foul language in their tweets, posted half naked photos of themselves ( yes you can post photos by way of Twitpic ). So one Saturday morning I just “un-followed” of those people. The good people I kept. A couple of them got upset and posted my name on some site named “Who Un-Followed Me”! Can you believe that? Some people have way too much time on their hands. They must be making a dollar a follow or something!
I looked on the site out of curiosity and saw people who not only lost like ten followers, but one poor unfortunate gent lost over 2,000. followers! Jeeez! I wonder what’d he do?
Well, it has been a buffo week for me and my supervisor. We have not been getting along at all! It seems that ever since I’d gotten back from bereavement leave she had been picking on me. Most of the stuff she’ been picking at me over is pure bull crap. I thought it was just me but I had a discussion with another co-worker who works during the day and she complained that The Boss Lady screamed at her. Now this lady is ready to go to the Principle ( The Boss Lady’s Supervisor ) and file a harassment complaint.
I understand if an employee makes an error and you as a superior must correct them but screaming at people in the workplace is boarish, uncouth and unprofessional. And mind you in some cases she is screaming at people that are older than her! I was always taught to RESPECT your elders not scream into their faces! Well, we shall see.
As for me, TBL was very pissed off at me because she gave me a special project to type on Friday morning. Now, I told her that I might not be able to type it because the weekends are very busy and I, being the only one in the office who knows how to mostly everything, everyone runs to me to help them. So no hardly any work gets done. So that last thing I need is to type up one of her special “Make Work Memos”.
Well, as predicted, I was not able to type the memo because it WAS very busy. As as I get in this morning she demands the memo and I told her I was not able to type it. Of course she demands to know why! That’s another thing, she is VERY DEMANDING! You MUST give her an answer when she asked for it! Well, I gave her one!! One she didn’t like because she didn’t speak a word to me until she left at 0130, she didn’t even say Good Bye. What a beast!
Also, before she left she asked for the written copy of the memo back and she gave it to another co-worker to type. The thing I don’t understand, if the memo was so all fire important, why didn’t SHE TYPE THE DARNED THING? The woman is worse than a three toed sloth when it comes to laziness. She’s abysmal!
Of course you know I believe all of this behavior is due to mental and psych illnesses which have not been treated and I believe are getting worse. And it really dosen’t help me because I already have “issues” and she is very antagonistic towards me. Lord, I really don’t like the way this is going. If this keeps up most of her workers will rat her out to HER boss and they will drag her butt to the NYPD shrinks to find out what’s wrong with her.
And, I really believe she needs to be put out on disability because she’s NOT capable of working. In all of the 16 years I’ve know TBL she has not done a stitch of significant work. Oh, she’s pretended to do work, but she really has not done anything. That’s why she REALLY suffers when I’m not there. Then she has to figure out how to do stuff she has not done in years and probably forgotten.
On to more bad news. The Precinct WiFi Club is no more. The guy who was handling it got so disgusted with so many people coming to him with complaints that he took down his shingle and quit. So there is no on taking over in his place, yet. I really want to find out who that person would be because I want to tell them two things. Get rid of that cheap one dollar and 99 cent modem they have and two I’ll pay a little more to help buy the thing! Jeeze Louise! How CHEAP can you be! These guys all have big screen tvs and cellphones and fancy cars and motorcycles and a couple of them have boats, so why buy such a crappy modem for WiFi in the station house? Get a good one for goodness sake!.
So, until then, no WiFi for me at work unless I’m using my Android phone. And that’s very limited. Better than nothing at all. Hey, it’s better to have half a loaf of bread then none at all. . . . .
PS This entry is about 10 days late because I had to update my spyware on both Beatrice ( laptop ) and Izze ( netbook ). I updated Beatrice first and attempted to update Izze on line too, but could not. It was a good thing I ordered the updated Webroot Spyware on disc because I had to wait for the disc to arrive in the mail and update it the old fashioned way.
Until I got that done I could not use Izze for about ten days. Get this I finally sign on and update the spyware, and I get besieged by all of the updates I had not done in the past 10 days. Opera, Java, Adobe, Carbonite, It was like they were clamoring over each other to get updated! So I had to wade through all of them which too two hours. Now I was able to write. Hopefully I won’t have to go through this again. Next year I will update my spyware a month ahead of time so I won’t have to go though this. . . . . . .
