Absolutely useless facts about you nobody cares about

The part of the forum where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong here, will be moved here. Maybe.

I would say something judgy if the same scenario hadn't applied to me my whole career.

My wife likes "Peets" brand coffee...so when I was bringing in the Peets coffee pods for her, I noticed that they rattle...none of my other brands of pods rattle....well I had to know what it was. so after brewing her cup, I disected the pod on the kitchen counter...mystery solved...its a plastic filter/spout/funnel fixture that looks like it focuses the stream into the hole punctured in the bottom of the pod when inserted into the machine...so why don't other pods have it...

Made a big mess of wet coffee grounds all over the counter...but I needed to know what the rattle was...
Any way the mystery is solved...you are welcome

Sometimes a man just needs to know things. Thanks for taking the hit for the rest of us.

They're changing my job. So now I need to apply again...to do the same job...for the same pay. If I don't qualify (?!?) then I get to keep my current job title...doing the same job...for the same pay.

I'm sure this makes sense to somebody.

Good luck...When my agency did that, I submitted the application and the city HR department sent me a "Thank you for applying but you are not qualified for this position" letter...I had been doing the job for 3 years...I have now been doing the job for 15 years, and they just announced that I am over qualified, and should be paid 13.8% more than my current pay.....so I am holding my breath for that $$ to show up in my check....NOT

I have bookmark scars on the inside of my lower legs from Chigger bites from last year. It looks a little odd. Almost a, hey are those cult acceptance burn scares on your legs? kind of odd.

I'm beginning to think Troubadour is not who he/she seems to be.
