Time For a Coffee Break! / Re: What is your profession?

Logistics Specialist. 

Primarily, I audit freight invoices, argue with vendors for overcharging (gov't agency), track vehicle costs... I always say "Planes, trains and automobiles" because I am involved with scheduling, tracking costs, and arranging use of them all.

The best thing is that there is such a variety, I don't get bored.

Life...in general / Re: houseguest towel etiquette
« Last post by bah12 on Today at 01:07:05 PM »
I think it's great that people are environmentally conscience...but, if we are going to talk about etiquette, I can't see fresh towels even hitting my radar.  What is rude, is telling someone or insinuating, that their hosting doesn't meet your general standard of how to both do laundry and conserve water.  There's more leeway for these conversations inside of a close family, sure, but I don't understand how this makes anyone feel 'awkward' or why it would be host's responsibility to avoid that for the guests.   Do people really sit around and evaluate how another household washes their towels...aside from here?

Why do people with shopping trolleys feel the need to converse with their friends in the only exit to the shop?  With bonus points if their trolleys are katy-cornered..

The same reason why coworkers converse in front of the bathroom door when there's an entire hallway that's free.

Being from the Midwest US, we call it "prairie dogging:D

I don't work in a cube farm, but now I kind of wish I did, solely because I would like to use the phrase "doing the meerkat"  ;D ;D That is hilarious!

(I have to admit it took me a minute to figure it out....meerkat? Is that a typo? What do meerkats have to do with cube farms......Ohhhhhhh!)

I cannot read/hear that phrase without thinking of something very different. "Doing the meerkat" has a much better ring to it ;)
