Start the new lab manager job Sunday.  It's all on me after that.  Can't believe all the crap I need to remember.  However, since Lenscrafters is such a big company, ie, bureaucracy, everything is wriiten down.  Just like the Navy.  Need to know something?  Look it up in the Playbook (SOP).  What is the audit (inspection) all about?  Check the Quality Operations Standards Assesment.  

On another note, I can't believe our prices.  My new sunglasses will be $122 WITH my 50% discount.  The frame is $19, the polycarbonate lenses make up the rest of the cost.  We actually have a 'See Now, Pay Later' program.  See: 90 Days Same As Cash.   So drop in to the Lenscrafters in Cary and see us.... I need the sales bonus.

Did I hear that right?  John the Baptist was killed by Bocephus?

When two vehicles stop at an intersection there are certain rules regarding who has the right of way.  The vehicle going straight has the right of way; the vehicle turning must yield.  

So.  Next time we get to an intersection together, GO!  I'm turning and will be happy to wait for you, really, it's alright.  You're just holding up everyone else.

Nearing the end of my second week with Lenscrafters.  Learning all the management stuff along with reaquainting myself with the whole lab process is making my brain hurt.  I'll be heading to "my lab" in Cary next week for two days.  Haven't decided if I'll be myself or go as brown nosing-corporate whore type guy.  It would be fun to (in a sadistic way) to make them think I'm an ass.

Sep. 26th, 2006 11:35 pm Can't Help But Snicker

No matter how old we get, childhood behaviors stay with us.  Yesterday my sister took me to a body pump class at Gold's.  It was a good workout and my legs got the worst of it.  Knowing this, she called to me from the garage later that night.  She said she needed help with something heavy.  I went to the door, looked down the steps (knowing my quads would fail me on the way down), and asked her what she needed. 
        Me:  (suspiciously) What do you need?
       Baby Sister:  no response
Me:  (knowingly)  Get it yourself!
       Baby Sister:  a cackle that passes as her laugh

Tonight Middle Sister came home (baby sister and I were babysitting) and the TV in the demon's room wasn't working.
      Middle sister:  Who messed up the TV in there?
      Me:  (pointing gleefully at Baby Sister)  She did it!!
      Baby Sister:   All I did was press menu and channel
      Me:  a smug smile... the same one I wore when Baby Sister or Middle Sister got a spanking when we were kids
Baby Sister:  daggers shooting from her eyes

Right now I'm thinking of the best time to tell her how loudly she is snoring.  I'm in the living room and she's fast asleep sawing big logs..  like  Douglas Fir sized logs.
Surely it will come up in front of family, but I'm wondering if maybe I need to stop by her work tomorrow to ask her if she wants to go to lunch.  It may have to slip out in front of her colleagues.

Sep. 26th, 2006 11:17 pm Welcome To The Machine

Started my second career today with Lenscrafters.  Spent 8 hours on the computer doing training modules so I'm now well on my way to becoming "The Man".  Got the call Friday that they (the corporate people) wanted me on the team to develop me for a management role and more.  Not only am I now a cog in evil corporate America, I will one day be part of "The Establishment", maybe even "A Suit".   The money will be good and the benefits are great, so hopefully I won't forget all the little people I stepped on to get up the ladder.  Wish me luck.

You have medium extroversion.
You're not the life of the party, but you do show up for the party.
Sometimes you are full of energy and open to new social experiences.
But you also need to hibernate and enjoy your "down time."


You have medium conscientiousness.
You're generally good at balancing work and play.
When you need to buckle down, you can usually get tasks done.
But you've been known to goof off when you know you can get away with it.


You have high agreeableness.
You are easy to get along with, and you value harmony highly.
Helpful and generous, you are willing to compromise with almost anyone.
You give people the benefit of the doubt and don't mind giving someone a second chance.


You have low neuroticism.
You are very emotionally stable and mentally together.
Only the greatest setbacks upset you, and you bounce back quickly.
Overall, you are typically calm and relaxed - making others feel secure.

Openness to experience:

Your openness to new experiences is low.
You're a pretty conservative person, and you favor what's socially acceptable.
You think that change for novelty's sake is a very bad idea.
While some may see this as boring, many see you as dependable and wise.</font></td></tr></table><div align="center"><a href="http://www.blogthings.com/thefivefactorpersonalitytest/">The Five Factor Personality Test</a></div>
