Boss: I'm going to heavily focus on patient X when presenting our case.

Me: No, don't do that, they're not going to care about X because foo. Focus on Y, Z, M, or A instead.

Boss, during the conference call: X X X.

Them: That's not relevant because foo. Are you sure yinz know what you're talking about?

It's so great to have a boss who listens when I talk and ackowledges my expertise.

It's always fun when one bug report uncovers three different bugs in two pieces of software.

(On a related note, if you have any questions about DMARC feel free to ask me.)

Every once in a while I'm reminded that I'm one of the top experts in the world in specific subject areas, and it really weirds me out. Like, I remember a time before I understood these things at all, and yet here we are now.

It would be Really Nice if the HR system would update and show the raise I was told I would be receiving so my brain would shut up about it.

"I have asked A and B to lead an effort supported by everyone in the organization to ensure that we have robust, consistent, and agile service and change management framework in place."

Mmm, agile. Taste the bullshit.

Unfriendly reminder: I've read 204 books so far this year. This may explain why I don't have any friends.

"If I dropped this beer bottle it might break," is a different sort of intrusive thought than the usual fiery car crash.

will now sometimes tell you "This name contains inappropriate text" when you are renaming a mon.

Interestingly, I discovered this while trying to name one "Virginia", which is incredibly foul. "Vaginia", "Fuccboi", "Fukc My Azz", and "Belgium" are all fine, however.

I can't tell if I'm actually enjoying this lesbian vampire romance, or just giving it more leeway for bad writing because F/F paranormal romance is so uncommon.
