Posts about my workplace and some of the “shenanigans” that go on there.
So, I’m looking through this engineering document for this project that is around $300,000,000 in capital cost. It’s quite a hefty document with an indecent number of pages and a lot of blood, sweat and tears (emphasis on the tears, I’m guessing) going into it.
I get to one section where they are estimating costs for various portions of the project. They obviously were using some kind of a template to put these costs together but the title on each page was written in Comic Sans font…
This isn’t a handout for a grade 3 class newsletter. This isn’t a Tupperware party invitation. This isn’t a sign for a lemonade stand.
This is a technical document that details the work involved with a $300,000,000 industrial project. DON’T USE COMIC SANS! Our client sees this! It makes us look like a mickey mouse operation! Whoever did this needs to be fired. For reals.
Here, in the waning hours of vacation, I lie in dread… for tomorrow is a return to work. My carefree days, playing video games in my pajamas and not knowing what day of the week it was… they’ve come to an end.
I lie in my bed writing this and I know I can’t hold out forever. Sleep is coming and with it a new day. It’s just going to really suck.
