You're a skunk, right? Do you spray?

I take several herbal supplements to stave off passive stench. As a result, my actual spray smells kinda like garlic bread. o.o

What should I commission from Norithics?

Also, is it a bad idea to shake people like a magic 8-ball when you really need answers?

A big sparkly purple pony! =D

Well, that's what I'd commission, anyway.

I'm afraid I must mandate a no-shaking-me policy! I'll give you answers anyway!
Besides, you could rattle something loose!

It took me a while, and I suppose I took some liberties with just what was meant by 'big'...  I trust it was close enough?

What would you do for a klondike bar? *holds up one of the cold chocolate-encased creamy treats*

And for a more close to home question: What's usually one of the best ways to handle someone at work who's got the same job title as you, but has more clout and brandishes said clout in often infuriating ways?  Namely using a double-standard when walking the supervisors through a work area (the work being custodial), pointing out every single spot and speck that you either missed, couldn't remove with the cleaning items provided, or had happened since you'd done the cleaning.  But refuse to apply the same standards to everyone else--especially not the people who have their noses so far up their butts that they can smell their breath.  To put a little more context to the situation, I work as a custodian on a college campus.  Ideally we'd have something like one housekeeper per 200 students.  We currently have something like 13-15 vacant positions, and can't fill them due to a hiring freeze.  So we're woefully understaffed.  And since we're the only department on campus that's consistently ended every fiscal year in the black for around a decade; we're also the first department to see budget trimming every new fiscal year..  That campus is also trying to lead the charge with a whole "go-green!" initiative.  And while that's great, it's also left the housekeeping department with "green" cleaning chemicals which are only marginally stronger than plain water..  So while "try harder to leave the areas you clean as immaculate as possible" works on paper, and is what I try to do..  It comes down to the fact that I'm already squeezing 10+ people-hours of work into an 8 hour shift.  Routines can be streamlined and sped up, but become more susceptible to derailment by even minor hiccups.  The only way to get everything done is to cut corners, and take as many shortcuts as possible while still getting the work done to an acceptable standard.

...I guess the real question is, is there any way to make the above situation any less soul-crushing? T^T

I'd do a seductive dance.

*Funky chicken!* >w<

It sounds as if this is a simple case of baser human nature. If this person is doing this intentionally, and it sounds as if they are, is there no way to reach them? Do they hold some manner of grudge that being the bigger person and trying to resolve amicably wouldn't help? If they are indeed that petty, then there's unfortunately very little you can do that doesn't involve command chains, and I know how flawed those systems are. =/

It seems as if your only solution may be to externalize your feelings over this when you aren't at risk for losing your job.

Mnph!  Absolutely pants tightening, Dr Cutie-butt. X3 *gives her the klondike bar* I would have also accepted the "hokey pokey" ;p

And unfortunenatly this person is the sort whom if you give them and inch, they take a mile, and then begrudge you when you don't come back around doing them favors.  So being amicable would only be taken advantage of.

Here's a question!

... How old are you? .-. I'm sure it's been written down somewhere but I've totally forgotten.

Also, Faux sends hugs. Lots of hugs.

*hugs!*  You've already answered the only real question I've had, elsewhere, so I'll just offer you a rather belated welcome to IB.  I might just have to apologize for those dreams I've been having of you lately, though...
Anyway, once more people know you're here, I imagine you'll garner greater interest.  Maybe not in ways you might desire, but...
It's good seeing you again.

I can't blame you for what you dream!

... Can I? \=)

*hugs~*

I'd better not answer that!  At least not in a public forum.  Let's just say they were... very nice dreams. :3
*snugs*
