Just thinking…

  I haven’t talked much about my job lately, because… Who cares, really? But to sum it up, since the beginning of the pandemic (literally, what a great timing!) we’ve been building a plane while trying to make it fly (Of course, this is a metaphore, I am far from intelligent enough to work in…… Continue reading Just thinking…

Ok, I’ve had enough of it! (November 27th FFF)

I was invited (well, not personally, but still…) to join the Fandango’s Friday Flashback! Fandango scrolls back, every Friday, and gives a second chance to a post he had published on the same date, years before. I thought it was a great way to remember some of the stuff I did a while back, and I…… Continue reading Ok, I’ve had enough of it! (November 27th FFF)

Damn if you do, damn if you don’t..

Just a little more than a week ago, I had my annual work evaluation. Well annual is an overstatement since it was my second in ten years of working for this business.  Anyway… It was a weird timing for an evaluation, if you’d ask me. Doing it in 2020, I mean. Seriously, with everything that’s happened in…… Continue reading Damn if you do, damn if you don’t..

I’m in…

I try my best not to blog about covid-19… I know it is useless to rant about it, because we are (literally) all in the same boat. Whining is futile, and quite honestly, I think that everybody is tired to read about it.  I am too. But it makes me really angry when I see…… Continue reading I’m in…

Dear WordPress…

. . Dear WordPress, We’ve been good friends for almost 5 years now, and quite honestly, I’ve put up with your occasional glitches because that’s what friends do. I tried to find them endearing, thinking you had character and did things your way. So you can imagine how excited I was this morning when I…… Continue reading Dear WordPress…

Block editor? Thanks, but no thanks!

  Oh no they won’t… I know we discussed this before, but now it seems to be happening. WordPress has started forcing bloggers to use the new(er) ”block” editor. I am not happy, to say the least. Of course I get that some of you like the new editor, and believe me… Good for you!…… Continue reading Block editor? Thanks, but no thanks!

What are your Top Three pet peeves…

  For today’s challenge, I decided to focus on pet peeves related to traveling… Because I miss being able to travel, and I guess a (very thin) silver lining to this pandemic, is that I won’t have to put up with these annoying people for a while. So here it is… My top three pet…… Continue reading What are your Top Three pet peeves…

Five annoying types of callers…

  For those of you who wouldn’t know it by now, my job is to provide technical support over the phone. So, to vulgarize, I spend most of my days playing the detective and trying to solve myseries and fix problems, based only on what I hear and what I say. I wouldn’t say that…… Continue reading Five annoying types of callers…

Thank you… and you! and you, you and you!

  Yesterday we had our eighth Skypy Sunday Chat Session. (yes, I’ll soon stop counting!) We’ve been doing this for two months already… Woot woot, us!! Thank you, Suzanne, Jay-lyn, Trina, Simon and Larry, for the visit. The meeting started with a lot of complaining about the (hellish) weather, most of said complaining coming from…… Continue reading Thank you… and you! and you, you and you!

This rant is taking off in 3…2…1!

  I am sorry for having been quiet in the Bloggosphere today. I spent most of my afternoon and evening genuinely pissed off. If you’ve been a regular in The Cove for the past almost four years, you know that our office has been constantly short of at least one person since I started this…… Continue reading This rant is taking off in 3…2…1!
