Yeah, seems I've reached some sort of plateau where . . . .

MY BOSS: Corporate needs this done.


ME: Are you ####ing serious? What do I look like? A miracle worker?

MY BOSS: This is what they want done.


ME: *sigh* When?

MY BOSS: Next week.

ME: I'll do it but I'm going to piss in your gas tank and ruin your day.


MY BOSS: Fine by me, I'll just drive my wife's car to work. Punk.



Pussy!

Would the new position allow you regular full 18 hours a day on ATS?

I think you'll find your answer there.

There's ALWAYS time for ATS!



For those interested, I am a hired gun.


I have degrees in engineering and clinical approaches.

That odd combination allows me to act as a consultant for a variety of hospitals who are always using new toys to treat patients.

My job is to make sure that the folks are using the new toys to their most efficient level.

I save lives. I try to make surgeries less painful and intrusive. An efficacious approach to modern medicine.

My baby Gunther's have the education but not the skills required for the job. I train them and teach docs at the same time.

So you eat their food, live in a backless tie up hospital gown whilst they do live human testing on you.

Absolutely!


What's life if you can't flash a hairy ass at staff all day long!

Ascend to the BOSS LEVEL!!!

Otherwise, why’d you play the game, man?




I never realized I was just a corporate tool to subvert the working class.



Now there there. No need for tears. I’m sorry! The working Gunther’s of the world need BOSS LEVEL folks to look up to so they have hope their measly mind-numbing existence will lead them to follow in your spike-heeled footsteps.

We need you, man. *sniff*

Why don’t you let Gunther make you a yummy snack and Gunther 2 can read some soothing articles fromForbes and the Wallstreet Journal?

PS: Lord Business dosent stay mean in the movie.

Seriously. You’ve been virtually hugged.

I’ve seen way too much of what little patients go through and if someone can ease their way a bit, they have all the angel blessings I can muster.

❤️💔❤️

Tech has improved faster than many can keep up.

Hence, my field.


30 years ago it would have been irrelevant, now it has become big business.

I spent the last two years developing a new trochar with a surgical team. The hardest part was finding LED's that could handle plasma sterilization.


A corporate giant has bought out my little company, so now I'm part of the corporate machine. But I'm so weird that they stay away from what I'm doing , they just want to profit from it.


I cut my teeth calibrating DaVinci's, remote surgical "robots". It grew from there. I assisted in so many abdominal surgeries that I have literally lost count.

Hell people (docs and staff) have gotten so specialized that they need people like me to scrub in just to operate their new toys.

Wow! That sounds intense!

I brought my then-two year old into his 3rd open heart surgery- other than the bypass/heart-lung machine, I’d wished I’d seen more high-tech and less, shall we say, low tech, implements. (I only stayed until he was under anesthesia)

Sounds very cool. I know they are working towards in-utero surgeries for what my son has, as well as a lot of other heart defects and such. There is definitely a future in that area too. I’ve noticed in the past 13 years there have been great advances in cath-lab procedures, which is awesome. Things that used to require open-heart can sometimes be handled less invasively with catheterization techniques.

Again, many blessings for the work you do. Sounds like you are very good at it! Train up them Gunther’s and spread the goodness.

In the past two years I have promoted 2 Gunther's and fired 12.


Not because I'm a dick, but because. . . well I am a dick. I demand perfection.

Sue me.

You are fortunate to have such a dilemma.

You're a real mover and shaker. In recent threads I've learned that you got a promotion and moved into a new home on the coast.

Having been born and living in Portland off and on from my late teens to my early twenties, I can say that it took me a long time to embrace that I am not a city person, and furthermore that I don't like Portland at all. (I don't think anybody really does, but the shame of their uncritical buy-in to the early 2000s "Portland dream" drives otherwise reasonable people to disingenuously broadcast a hysterical, harried, ham-fisted regional devotion. I call this "the Portland Effect" and is similar to a hypothesis I'm still hammering out called "the Radiohead Syndrome", but that's for another thread.)

It would take a lot more than money to convince me to move back.

Safe to say we are different beasts from different jungles, but whatever you choose, it will inevitably be right, right?

Negotiate their proposal to your liking. Your rapier wit will come in handy. Your superior intellect will win out.

Do it your way. I somehow get the feeling you always get your way.

Good luck-but you don't need luck. Enjoy the process-make it work for you.

Sorry to hear your child has had to go through so much, prayers that he doesn't have long lasting complications. My sis in law was born with a heart defect and my cousin had to have a heart transplant at 25, it's rough stuff.

I have a child that will be starting college soon and will want to make sure he isn't loaded with debt.


This. Because if he isn't loaded with debt he can get loaded with other things.

Heh, that's where my husband was at, and then he switched departments in the company because he got tired of those projects and then people ignoring the work he had done and blaming him because they ignored it.

He's much happier now and bringing home international goodies.

Congratulations!

...Just to be clear the weird Xerxes facial piercings are required by the job or you would be getting them on your own?
