      I am so damn fed up with one of our techs, works in a regulated lab and can't/won't count to 10, with stupid mistakes again and again. Now because of ANOTHER mistake I need to go back and notify a client of an error on their project. She was on a PIP last year but still hung around, I hope this is the straw that breaks the camel's back and management finally gives her the boot.

      Needing a magnifying glass to count is rather inconvenient.

      Welp, son is doing well, antibiotic eyedrops twice a day are killing me, he is hella strong.

      He is looking like patient zero in a zombie flick.

      Sometimes I wish I didn't say some of the things I say.

      For instance, today is our CEO's first day back in the office since her husband has passed at an early 52 years of age.

      I went to her office to say hello and get her caught up on everything she's missed with my department since she's been out. Then we start chatting about spring break. She's taking her three kids to Hot Springs next week. Without even thinking about what I was about to say I immediately say "Oh, that'll be great. It's a fun place! In fact, my parents will be there the same time you are. They go every year for their anniversary."

      By the time I finished the sentence I turned bright red, she took it with stride and kept talking, but f*ck, that was in poor taste. She just lost her husband exactly two weeks ago. Is there an emoji for banging your head through the wall?

      That's honestly not too bad Erik and you shouldn't give yourself cringe attacks over it. You were trying to be supportive. So remember that if it pops again in your memory years from now, you said something iffy but your heart was trying to help her feel some happiness.

      I don't think you have anything to worry about.

      Not to be morbid, but did they every figure out what happened?

      If a zombie outbreak happens, at least we have documentation on where it all started.

      Today is the anniversary of her brothers death

      Last night was really hard for her

      I dont even know how to help... she just cries all day on the phone with her parents and her sister. Constant phone calls from Israel and then missiles fly out of Gaza

      You could hear the explosions from her Skype call

      Because you obviously were trying to discuss personal "fun crap", not remind her about her loss.

      Short of saying "hey, how the hell is bob! haven't seen him stopping by as your plus-1 for a while?!", whatever you say in the course of being a caring human being will likely not be hurting feelings or causing more pain.

      Today was the first day all week I haven't been ridiculously busy.

      It's been kind of nice just relaxing all day. In 19 minutes I'll leave to pick the kids up from daycare, and my weekend begins. Hallalujer.
