Woohoo

There's an official, free, LJ app for the iPhone now. It will be much more easy to post and read now. The only drawback I've found so far is a lack of auto-correct in the fatfinger department.

Posted via LiveJournal app for iPhone.

Got called in to the office today.
"We really like your work and no client has had anything bad to say about you ever ... but ... according to industry standards you're overpaid and your bill rate isn't high enough for us to make enough profit. Effective immediately we're cutting your pay 20% to bring you in line with what you bill now and what we think you can bill in the future. Oh, and if you would, please don't discuss this with anyone at the company. We don't want people to panic and start jumping ship."

They like me ... yeah. I've gotten nothing but perfect scores from my clients over the last 4 years and I'm treated like this. Thanks guys! Talk about not shitting where you sleep. The more I learn about business the more I'm convinced there has to be a better way than any system humanity has figured out yet.

Not to mention. It's getting increasingly hard not to turn into a knee jerk racist at work and blame the immigrant population in the office on downward wage trends. I know it's not their fault. It's the fault of the smarmy bastard in the front office and people like him.

Meh, at least I still have a job and they like my work. I'll be damned if they get anything extra out of me now though. (not the client but the consulting company)

I heard this one on Pandora and it's stuck in my head for some reason.


Now I know why ... I liked the other song I heard by them before.

current mood: busy

I know book stores strip unsold books ... bus seriously, this seems a bit much if it's true.
borders plans to trash tens of thousands of unsold books
I know they have to think about their bottom line as a business, but how many libraries out there are shutting down? How many community centers could use books?
