    Re: Talk about your troubles

    I made it through pretty well. No downed trees and I have had power all day, just no cable/Internet. I didn't want to use my phone too much to keep the battery power. There is still more rain but the winds are not bad (at least for now). It has got to be bad in low areas and Plaquemines parish.

    Glad to know you're safe. I hope the water don't get too high.

    Correction. Meant to say, "I hope the waters don't get too high." LOL

    Re: Talk about your troubles

    I wasn't sure where to post this. It's not really troubles but I felt the need to gripe about something.

    A co-worker asked me when our supply order would come in because we're out of small notepads so she's using phone message paper in the meantime. I reminded her that we have bigger notepads she could use until we got the other notepads in but she vehemently did not want to use those because she uses them for another purpose.

    Personally, I already think it's stupid that we're ordering both sizes of note pads. Paper is paper so why do you need a small notepad for some projects and big ones for other ones??? This same co-worker also orders colored plastic paper clips instead of using the regular metal clips like everyone else in the office. She got huffy when she found out the state wouldn't pay for those clips so now she buys her own. She also had me order her a pack of CD-R for a presentation she was doing instead of using the CD-R's we already have in the office.

    It's really hard for me to hold my tongue and not say anything but I think she's being ridiculous and wasteful. Let her go ahead and scribble on phone message paper if she's too stubborn to use regular sized paper.
