re: Work Enemies...Who is the person at work that drives you crazy? - pelicansfan123
[quote]Work with several arse kissers. It’s like elementary school. One who gets to the office at 6:45 and immediately sends out emails to let everyone know they are there early.[/quote] I don't hate her, but there's one coworker in my office too that loves sending Teams messages right around 8 A...

re: Off-duty NOPD officer robbed on Bourbon Street by 16 year old last night - pelicansfan123
[quote]He was booked into the Juvenile Justice Intervention Center on charges of second-degree battery and simple robbery."[/quote] I'm trying to understand why second-degree battery and simple robbery don't land this "kid" in the adult prison. If this "kid" wants to do adult crimes, he can do...

re: Back to school: do you have enough teachers? - pelicansfan123
[quote]Most parents today don't parent. I feel for teachers in today's America.[/quote] There have been constant times where I have been working with students where I have thought to myself "These grades/effort level would have never cut it with my parents when I was in school." And it does ma...

re: Flight Cancellations and Delays - pelicansfan123
I was supposed to fly somewhere (eight-or-so hours drive away) last week. The plane had some sort of leak/mechanical failure after it rained and it seemed like I would miss my connection and wouldn't get there until after the point where I would drive there. So, I got my refund and just decided, ...

re: Back to school: do you have enough teachers? - pelicansfan123
[quote]Only almost everything. I’m far too invested to get out now, though.[/quote] Yeah, I got my grad school degree in the field and so I feel guilt (and don't know what else I would do). Just made some poor decisions in terms of what to get my degrees in....

re: Back to school: do you have enough teachers? - pelicansfan123
[quote]This is all well and good, but the real reason is that in 90% of schools, the kids are little bastards, and the teachers get sick of dealing with little bastards.[/quote] Even working in higher ed, it's amazing how much less patience I have in my every day life now compared to before I sta...

re: Back to school: do you have enough teachers? - pelicansfan123
The problem for both grade school teacher and higher ed staff is that administrations don't pay these workers enough, take them for granted, and it constantly feels like we're getting hit from all sides (where we have to worry about student complaints, parent complaints, not doing everything to perf...

re: For those of you with side jobs for extra income, how many hours are you putting in? - pelicansfan123
[quote]Yeah that’s where I’m at as well. I’m a teacher so going right into more teaching is a drag. But it pays well and we need the money right now.[/quote] It's a dilemma for sure and you have to think about how much you need the money. Even though I do like my side gig, if I were making double...

re: For those of you with side jobs for extra income, how many hours are you putting in? - pelicansfan123
Put in, most weeks, probably 8-10 hours a week on a side gig. It's remote contract work that I can do whenever I see fit, and it's been great to supplement my meager income. It can be tough, however, to have to wake up early in the morning to do the side gig and then go to work or come back from ...

re: Who was born in New Orleans and grew up here? - pelicansfan123
Born and raised in New Orleans, but moved away. Was just telling my family last night: Until I moved away, I just thought that this is how it is everywhere (HORRENDOUS streets, tons of crime, litter everywhere, etc). And then you move somewhere else and it's clean, the streets are smooth, and ...

re: People who rush to the front of the plane after it lands. - pelicansfan123
I understand what you're saying but, even for terminal destinations, there could be a very real reason why someone is rushing off the plane. Maybe they're visiting a sick relative and are desperate to see him/her or there's a bus leaving the terminal at a certain time that they have to catch. ...

[quote]Why not move to one of those areas and get away from New Orleans for your family’s sake.
