An ounce of prevention

The old saying says that it is worth a pound of cure. This last week has been one bureaucratic frustration after another. When I ask why no one told me something that affects my job, I am offered help in fixing the problem. I know how to fix it; that is my job. I want to know why the message was not communicated that would have prevented the breakage.

When I submit a ticket for an email problem, I have to call in the next day to tell them that it is still a problem or else they will close the ticket in 72 hours. Then I am told that this a known issue and there is already an open ticket. Except this ticket is closed and there was no way for me to know it existed in the first place. Known issues are only known to you unless you publish them somewhere.

You can’t send my medical supplies because my consent form expired yesterday. I was in the office last week and you should have had me sign a new one.

Your idiot bank keeps sending me balance transfer checks despite two requests to stop. Now you send me two secure messages that they should stop in 60 days. You send one per week and it takes two months to stop them? Get a fucking clue that I will never use those checks.

Efficiency is not always about saving money. It is often about keeping your fellow humans sane.

datarep:

Most common main language spoken at home in London, not including English/European languages

And people voted for Brecit to keep Europeans. How many European languages do you see on that list?

The map excludes all European languages.

These are the books I’ve read this year. Jasper Fforde’s Tuesday Next, Ben Aaronovitch’s Peter Grant and Bryan Talbot’s Inspector LeBrock are all British police-types in fantastic worlds. Flavia de Luce isn’t exactly in a fantastic world, but she is a Brit who solves crime. Lemony Snicket is not British, but he does belong to a secret society that aims to improve the world. I think there is a clear subgenre here that I am really getting into.

Uprooted, Heartless, Darkest Part of the Forest, Sin Eater’s Daughter, its sequel The Sleeping Prince and Lost in a Book are all fairy tale retellings and feature female protagonists. Most had slow or repetitive parts and though I did not love any of them, I liked them all.

This hotel reminds you to steal the toiletries!

I work in hotels/resorts, and honestly, take the little shampoos and soaps! We throw them away when you leave (we don’t know if you’ve opened them and messed with them or whatever, so for health and safety it all goes in the trash)
If you stay at the fancier places or chains, they’ve actually done some bit of thought into the scents for the toiletries, in that if you use them while at home you’ll remember the time you stayed at the hotel and be more likely to return.

Just don’t take the towels or the robes or any of that shit, it’s expensive.

This is true, all soaps, shampoos, and the like are tossed after a guest checks out of the hotel even if it’s clearly unopened because it is considered a health hazard violation in most places if they’re left there. If someone were to somehow get sick from it, a hotel can be shut down. Just take the toiletries, they’re ordered in bulk as is and only cost the hotel a few dollars to order them by the hundreds

And even if you don’t use them, you can donate them to your local homeless shelter or other similar charity and give someone something they could use that would otherwise go to waste.

PLEASE TAKE THE SOAPS. PLEASE DONATE THE SOAPS. It’s one of the biggest requests shelters/supply banks get. You want to make their fucking day? Show up with socks, undies, diapers, and toiletries.

And here I am not taking them to avoid being wasteful.

And here I was not wanting to steal things from the hotels. The more you know.

Reblogging again because I didn’t even think about donating them to charity. I figured they were too small to be useful, but they would be perfect for shelters and the like.

Calling it stealing is so weird to me. If they don’t want you to use it, they wouldn’t offer it. I’ve been to hotels where you get shampoo and soap and nothing more. If a business offers you something and you choose to take it, that is the opposite of stealing. This is not the bowl of mints meant for everyone; this is a tiny bottle of soap meant for you.

Adulting

I have four different doctor appointments today, including the dentist I have been putting off for years. There are three more that I should make before the end of the year. I still feel like I should make one or two phone calls that I have on my list as well, but only if I have time. One thing that helps me when scheduling an appointment is when I can make it online and see all of the available times.
