This is the Egg McMuffin of Posts

Blue kind of threw down the gauntlet with the new manager. While it wasn't an ultimatum, I clearly stated what I wanted to be paid under the new circumstances of the business. Also showing that I was below "market rate" and made a bunch of other really good arguments....I think I find out today what the outcome of that is. I sent the proposal almost 2 weeks ago though, so we'll see. If it doesn't work out how I want it to, i'm on the serious job hunt.

Local media keeps trying to be optimistic about the broncos/steelers game. While, i'll agree that it probably won't be a "blowout", I don't see any way the broncos stay in this game. They might not score A point, and i'm pretty sure you have to score more than 0 to win a game.

College Football kickers are the worst. Even in the pros, I hate the fact that at the end of games or in overtime it seems like teams play for the FG to win it. Screw that, if you're moving the ball, keep moving it, trust your offense, don't trust the idiot kicker. Boise State knows what i'm talking about, and now so does about 3 or 4 other college teams.

Since the BCS games have been fairly good, that means the national championship is going to be a stinker, for sure. I'm guessing nobody other than Tem will be tuning into the rotten orange bowl. Well, maybe Andrew Luck because his dad is involved or something.

The mormon guy won in Iowa by 8 votes. There will be a recount i'm sure. But it's really not fair, mormons have like 12 kids each, so they would have more voting power if some of them are over 18. So when they go to states with lots of mormons (Utah, Idaho, California, Boston*) he'll do well, everywhere else, he sucks.

"what is a good way to test my internet speed? i think my internet is fucking slow."

there's a few websites that will "clock your speed"

El Padrino said...

el pad is also waiting to hear how much his raise will be as well as his handsome bonus

El Padrino said...

and el pad will go on a fruitless job hunt as well if wages are not "corrected" to the market rates

it means WVU is getting blowed* out tonight.

tem said...

"there's a few websites that will "clock your speed""

i'm always afraid these are just virus websites and i am basically just downloading a virus in the disguise of testing my speed.

tem said...

"....I think I find out today what the outcome of that is. "

you'll get a little over half of what you asked for.

Blue said...

that's my fear.

it wasn't a negotiation ploy where i asked for the moon and thought if I get half i'd be happy

I guess i have a meeting at 2:30 now to go over it.

Blue said...

this is the one i've used

my pops who used to work for Cisco, uses this one as well.

Just don't click on the stuff on the right, only the main test in the middle.

The stuff on the right will try and sell you crap.

tem said...

thanks. i'll try that one when i get home.

tem said...

what % raise were you asking for?

El Padrino said...

i'm seeking a 25% increase just havent told anyone yet

Blue said...

it's roughly 15% or so.

but i made my arguments, over a 3 and 1/2 year span my pay has only gone up 10%, but the company has grown 500%, and my responsibilities have increased proportionally. My direct reports have gone from 1 to 8...etc etc etc

Blue said...

and the truth is, I was fine with what I was getting paid for the most part, but only because there was that carrot of the CFO job in front of me, and I figured that's when the pay correction would happen.

now that it's gone...i gotta move.

Muschamped said...

Rich people problems

tem said...

"i'm seeking a 25% increase just havent told anyone yet"

i don't think you'll get it without telling anyone.

tem said...

i don't even know what i made 3 and a half years ago.

El Padrino said...

"i don't think you'll get it without telling anyone."

comp #'s are in, waiting for evaluation in feb

nothing will come of it now

tem said...

so they know what raise and bonus you are getting already?

but they don't tell you until next month?

Blue said...

"i don't even know what i made 3 and a half years ago."

i know because i'm the head of HR

El Padrino said...

"so they know what raise and bonus you are getting already?

but they don't tell you until next month?"

correct

Blue said...

yeah, a lot of companies do that. They wait until towards the end of Q1 to do evaluations, and then retro.

Muschamped said...

Why didn't they call a false start on michigan's kicker?

A martini is not a martini without an olive.

That, at least, is the thinking of a true connoisseur.

And to Siouxland residents, many of whom consider themselves connoisseurs of fine food, a city is not a city without an Olive Garden. So as of Monday, Sioux City becomes a real city.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Muschamped said...

The funny part is how you think you're so far above OG

Meiz said...

Wait. Is LP really expecting a $20,000 raise? What the fuck?

tem said...

did forest gump win the heisman?

yeah he wants the big money.

tem said...

meiz, did that game make it to you?

Muschamped said...

Wait. Is LP really expecting a $20,000 raise? What the fuck?



Dude, it's LP. He deserves better than anyone

Meiz said...

"meiz, did that game make it to you?"


Yeah, it came yesterday. Thanks dude!

Meiz said...

That exclamation point was brought to you by working in a corporate setting. I hate myself even more now.

what's wrong with a 20k raise?

that's pocket change

El Padrino said...

blue knows

tem said...

i'd be all kinds of excited about a $20K raise.

Muschamped said...

Yo tambien

Blue said...

you know i don't speak spanish

El Padrino said...

no matter what it's never enough

Blue said...

ep knows

Blue said...

if I gave meiz a 20k raise, he'd be happy for a few months, then decide he needed more money

El Padrino said...

and he'd spend it

the more you make the more you spend

mo money mo problems

i think people fart in my office and run away when i am not in here.

Meiz said...

"if I gave meiz a 20k raise, he'd be happy for a few months, then decide he needed more money"


So I wouldn't be happy with a 100% raise in pay? You're drunk.

Muschamped said...

Your happiness window is about 36 days

Blue said...

"hilarity"

that's fake

Blue said...

saw a similar thing at a nuggets game one year and was like "DAMN"


but then found out sports teams do that a couple times a year because people think its entertaining.

Meiz said...

"Your happiness window is about 36 days"

Give me money, and watch me stay happy as fuck

Anybody else going to the NDR Friday the 13th show?

Til that money is spent and you need more

Muschamped said...

I'm not ranking on you. That's just the nature of the beast

Meiz said...

"Til that money is spent and you need more"


How would the money go away?

Meiz said...

I'd still be working

Meiz said...

Thus, continuing to make money.

Lil Brother said...

Meiz said...

I watch too much shit on youtube

Lil Brother said...

mize, I don't understand your shuffle problem. i guess shuffle is different on iPod vs iPhone

Meiz said...

On an iPod Classic, you cannot shuffle just one specific playlist. You can only shuffle the order of albums, or shuffle all songs.

On an iPod Nano, you have to option, after clicking on a playlist, to shuffle only that particular playlist.

Lil Brother said...

ah, iPhone has shuffle button in the corner. you can shuffle/non-shuffle anytime. playlist or album.

Lil Brother said...

had an old iPod that I rarely used, but I use the hell out of the iPod on the iPhone. syncs via Bluetooth in my truck

Muschamped said...

How would the money go away?


Like LP said, when you have more money you tend to buy more shit

Lil Brother said...

"Like LP said, when you have more money you tend to buy more shit"

I would agree with that.

Muschamped said...

You make more at Sysco than you made at UPS, right? And it seemed like you were spending more money last year

Muschamped said...

TC time

Lil Brother said...

"TC time"

waiting 20 minutes so I can fwd through the commercials

Muschamped said...

I'll spoil it

Lil Brother said...

you watching tc last chance kitchen on the interwebs. just caught up last weekend. each episode is only like 7 or 8 minutes

Lil Brother said...

Muschamped said...

No. I saw them talk about it on the show.what is it?

Muschamped said...

The Chicago Cubs are trading Carlos Zambrano to the Miami Marlins, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Muschamped said...

Also heard the Nats are the leading contender to sign Prince. NL East gonna be competitive

Lil Brother said...

"No. I saw them talk about it on the show.what is it?"

1st person eliminated goes head to head against the 2nd person eliminated. winner played the 3rd person eliminated and so on. eventually last person standing gets back in.... not sure when though

Lil Brother said...

I think the black chick is the current last chef standing. she will face whoever is eliminated tonight

Muschamped said...

Chris jones drives me crazy

Meiz said...

"You make more at Sysco than you made at UPS, right? And it seemed like you were spending more money last year"


Where do I live right now?

Muschamped said...

She was my favorite chick

Lil Brother said...

with the exception of the mess, NL East gonna be competitive

fixed

Meiz said...

"Like LP said, when you have more money you tend to buy more shit"


While true, I have virtually everything I would need, other than a nice computer.

Muschamped said...

Where do I live right now?



Ok. But you also were going to A LOT more games, right? And going out to the bar more. No?

Muschamped said...

And you don't have rent, so you're spending that "extra" money in other places

Muschamped said...

While true, I have virtually everything I would need, other than a nice computer.


And you will eventually have to start spending more when you have rent and utilities again

Meiz said...

"Ok. But you also were going to A LOT more games, right? And going out to the bar more. No?"


No, not going to the bar more. I spent money on baseball games because I have no rent to pay. And I didn't spend over $20 on a ticket outside of the playoffs.

Muschamped said...

Ed and Ty-Lor are probably my 2 favorites

Meiz said...

"And you will eventually have to start spending more when you have rent and utilities again"


Right, so how can you say I'll be spending more money?

Meiz said...

I wouldn't be going to baseball games, and all that shit.

Muschamped said...

I spent money on baseball games because I have no rent to pay.



That is my point. You had extra money, so you found something else to spend it on.

Meiz said...

"And you don't have rent, so you're spending that "extra" money in other places"


I think you're making my argument for me

Muschamped said...

Relax mize, I'm not saying it's just you. But when people have extra money, they usually find some way to spend it

Meiz said...

"That is my point. You had extra money, so you found something else to spend it on."


So instead of having zero leisure activities, I would have a normal amount. AND I'd be able to afford rent and utilities.

Muschamped said...

I wouldn't be going to baseball games, and all that shit.



Well that's because they're going to go back to sucking

Meiz said...

"Relax mize, I'm not saying it's just you. But when people have extra money, they usually find some way to spend it"


I think you're arguing in circles

Muschamped said...

Of course you do

Meiz said...

The other ways I'd spend my money is on rent & bills

Muschamped said...

I guarantee someone that's not you understands what I'm saying

NS

Muschamped said...

You're right mize. With extra money, you would never complain about anything mkney related ever again. I should not have been so naive to think otherwise

Meiz said...

What you're saying is that you think I would take extra income and blow it on a bunch of shit I don't need instead of saving it, and I'm telling you you're wrong.

Meiz said...

"You're right mize. With extra money, you would never complain about anything mkney related ever again. I should not have been so naive to think otherwise"


I am right. I wouldn't be complaining about things like "fuck, I can't make rent this month", or "my electric bill is 2 months overdue". They'd be things like "man, I really want that $40,000 car, but I can't afford it"

and that is ridiculous to me.

Muschamped said...

What you're saying is that you think I would take extra income and blow it on a bunch of shit I don't need instead of saving it,



AKA, Andy2K11

Meiz said...

FUCK.

No, I've saved a lot of money(for me) in the past year.

tem said...

can work on that 2nd qtr. 35-3 qtr...gave up 3 points, but i'll take it.

Muschamped said...

and that is ridiculous to me.


I agree. But you've never been in that situation. Having money changes folk, man

Meiz said...

So for once in my fucking life I decided that since I had no rent to pay, I'd actually buy myself some things I want and not be a completely miserable fuck.

Muschamped said...

can work on that 2nd qtr. 35-3 qtr...gave up 3 points, but i'll take it.




Fuck off

I don't get how you can be so sold on the way somebody else would act with a merely decent paying job.

Meiz said...

"the TCS champ is on the ropes."


::goes to work on the body::

Muschamped said...

I don't get how you can be so sold on the way somebody else would act with a merely decent paying job


I'm not sold. I'm telling you what effect extra money has on most people, and seeing what you've done with extra money, it looks the same. I could* care less what you do with money, really. Like I said, I wasn't ragging on you personally

Muschamped said...

::goes to work on the body::



I don't swing that way

"I'm not sold. I'm telling you what effect extra money has on most people, and seeing what you've done with extra money, it looks the same. I could* care less what you do with money, really. Like I said, I wasn't ragging on you personally"


Regardless, doubling my salary would merely allow me to make rent, pay bills, etc...AND go out & be social with my friends AND still save money. I'd live a normal life instead of being absolutely, positively miserable.

tem said...

back to the game

Meiz said...

Back to youtube fish filleting videos

tem said...

Is fish videos to meiz what porn is to el pad?

Meiz said...

I think it might be.

I think that is bad.

I need Blue to help me out & assplain why Rudy Fernandez gets jerked around so much.

Because of the altitude.

Meiz said...

Okay, another iPod problem. The cord that came with my new iPod is faulty. Old man got it from best buy online. Should I just take the shit to Best Buy in town and see if they'll give me a new cord?

Spaceman Spiff said...

they should give you a new ipod

Meiz said...

Stop it.

Meiz said...

I think Spiff just heat checked me.

Muschamped said...

If you have the packaging and the receipt, I would think they'd replace the whole thing

Muschamped said...

Apple would probably just replace the cord

Lil Brother said...

mize should take better care of his stuff

Meiz said...

"mize should take better care of his stuff"


?

It's brand new. The cord is shoddy. Nano cord works, new iPod cord only works if it is in the usb slot just so. I had problems with it from jump street.

Meiz said...

"If you have the packaging and the receipt, I would think they'd replace the whole thing"


I do, but all I want is a new cord, not a new iPod. It took hours to load my music & movies on it. Don't want to have to do that again.

Spaceman Spiff said...

dont think anyone here works at best buy though

Spaceman Spiff said...

"I had problems with it from jump street."

'It took hours to load my music & movies on it. Don't want to have to do that again."

should have taken it in instead of 'nerding out on music' to prevent that just in case

On Christmas day? The cord is faulty, the iPod is fine.

If you're not helping, you are the resistance.

Nevermind the offensive basket interference

""I had problems with it from jump street."

I like how you copy & paste whatever is convenient to appear that the quotes are related.

You've got one here regarding the iPod cord, and one regarding my computer. And then you throw in my intentions for my iPod...I see you.
Cut that monkey shit out.
