Don't know if it's changed now, but a couple of years ago you were expected to report income online, but if you worked more than 30 hours then you couldn't report it online, you had to call them...

It'd be easier just to put in 29 hours every week...

So I get this letter about putting the incorrect things in the recycling bin.

Turns out the Neighbours from 2 doors down been putting stuff into our bins. Not really something to get peed off at. Except they put a bunch of crap in the recycling bin... WTF! And then they denied it when I showed them the letter...

However, I found the footage in the CCTV... which i also forwarded onto the council who sent me the letter.

I doubt I'll get any form of an apology.

Some of the stuff included old clothing, old pots and pans, and an old fire extinguisher.

How could I forget the other thing.

Geez the Collingwood Shop are slow.

Almost 2 weeks and they haven't shipped my order yet.

People who say always buy from the shop are spot on, because we're gonna miss the date if they dont arrive tomorrow which seems unlikely as they have not been shipped.

And ten bucks postage too. Rolling Eyes

That’s $%$ed, but I’d be in a world of pain if our council cared! Although not so much the recycling bin, but did dump some crap in the regular bin that shouldn’t have. But even if dumping in the recycling bin, I always make suede the top is legitimate so it’s only if someone actually goes through it.

But both here and my old place in Bendigo I have noticed the contents of the recycling bin ended up in my regular bin which I assumed was someone going through the recycling for cans and bottles.

Couple of things I'd like to add to my list.

1. Already mentioned but worth a retake, nimrods who drive at 80kmh in a 100kmh zone. Take the handbrake off you Fwit or hand your licence back.

2. Breakfast places who can't get their timing right when delivering Coffee and food. Coffee should arrive shortly before the food. Shortly. Not half an hour before and certainly not after you've finished eating the food. It's not fkn hard.

3. Toyota Corolla Hybrid hatch. To be fair, it has nothing to do with it being a Hybrid and everthing about the designing. The C pillars are so fkn fat you can't see shit when trying to reverse out of a parking spot, you have to twist your head and stretch your neck like fkn Plastic Man to vainly try to get a glimpse of what might be coming to hit you. The reversing camera is shite, the wireless phone charger doesn't work, the USB phone charger is on the passenger side under and next to the glove box (I had to google it to find it) and the Android Auto doesn't work. The seat doesn't go up and down, I felt like I was sitting on the floor. Lucky I'm taller than average but still, getting out is like getting out of a bathtub. On the positives, it has surprising pickup for a little shitbox, goes from 80 to 120 in nothing flat and does have very good legroom for the driver, but if you gave me one and I wasn't allowed to sell it, I'd cut the roof off, fill it with dirt and put plants in it.

This fkn weather. Evil or Very Mad

Seriously, bring on global warming FFS. I went for a 5km walk yesterday morning, it was -1.9c. Today we got to a lofty top temp of 9.2c.

Perfomance reviews.

I have worked mostly for NFPs/charities and haven't had to many formal reviews. Everyone was too busy working their arses off to keep the operation afloat. At one place we didn't have pay raises for 5 years as they were so skint.

The company I now work for was sold early this year to a group that is based in Sydney and primarily in the recruitment & HR field.

Now we have to do self-assessments (naval gazing) and formal reviews including goal setting.
Had to sit through a HR workshop a week ago about giving/receiving feedback which had so many buzz words and gobbledegook. When HR started talking about Radical Candor theory I tuned out.

I work as a casual in accounts. Reasonably basic stuff, not rocket science.
Don't see much value in half the things listed that I have discuss in the review but I have been told that I have to do it or no pay rise.

Honestly I would rather sit in the Carlton cheer squad for an afternoon than this crap.

How did you work in HR and keep a straight face?

Seriously, everything is made so complicated.

One of my sisters, when asked where she wanted to be in 12 months, wanted to put down 'At a vineyard in Tuscany enjoying lunch & wine'. Thought better of it though 😁.

Anyway my manager is so busy, she didn't mention it this arvo when I checked in after finishing daily work.
Have few more days before I have to really think about it.

Keeping a straight face got harder the older I got as I saw other Snr HR people get all swept up in theory that they didn't practice. Some people seriously go OTT with that shit.

In principle it's a good thing that you and your boss have a clear shared understanding of what you're supposed to be doing, in practice many organisations totally over complicate it and get all cultish about it.

Toward the end I was losing the capacity to even feign interest. When I was at RMIT for what was supposed to be 4 weeks and turned into 2 years, I had to go into this clunky online portal to put in my KPI's, performance expectations etc, I just put in one. "Get shit done". I never had a performance review meeting. Wink Laughing

Ironically, in my last job, I had to configure a new online portal the organisation had commissioned to, you guessed it, manage the annual performace appraisal process. It was actually fun, learning how to use it, frequent video meetings with the software team in Frisco, and figuring out how to adapt how the application worked to what we wanted, but the irony wasn';t lost on me.
