Well, it's Friday the 13th.

Anyone poke their heads out from under the blankets this morning and decide to stay in bed? Anyone take a different route to work?

Curious to see how much credence you give to old wives tales? And why are they called old wives tales? What were the young ones doing?...oh...never mind....think I just figured that one for myself! :ko:

Stay Tuned

No paraskevidekatriaphobia here (but I did have second thoughts about getting out of bed for lack of interest at work).

Heres my prediction about Fri the 13th:

Like every other one of societies fabricated ailments, diseases, disorders & phobias, our friends at Pfizer will probably soon introduce a pill to combat the inner destruction of those afflicted with paraskevidekatriaphobia. Better living through chemicals !

Stay tuned and have day:thedeal:

FACT

Let’s see, I woke up late because my alarm didn’t go off. Knowing I had training at 8:00 I rushed to get ready (pony tail and no make-up). As I was driving thinking to myself that all was going to be OK something came flying from under my dashboard. It was some belt that decided to give out on the day I needed it most. Being the dedicated employee that I am, I called a friend to bring me into work and just left my car on the side of the road. By the time my friend showed up I was already late to give my training to upper management.

Superstition...fact or fiction? You ask, well for me today it is FACT!

Ok I’m done now, is it time for happy hour yet?
:bonk:

I'm not really a superstitious person, but I have to admit that I am a bit concerned about having a dentist appointment this afternoon. :eek:

I wish it was! I'm counting down the clock until YABBA-DABBA-DO time!

Other than late, though, how did the presentation go? Did you wow 'em in management?

And hey, one good thing at least...you managed to post!

I guess all I can compare with is that I'm having a totally bad hair day. Could the office get any more humid?!?! My hair is doing some pretty funky stuff...I'd be impressed if it was someone else. Actually, no...I'd laugh if someone else's hair was doing this....

Welcome to the Cove! :bigwave:

Thanks!
We had to reschedule the training, but that probably works out better for me….more time to prepare.

I can feel happy hour coming on soon, it seems that’s where we do most of our brainstorming and root cause analysis, the only thing is we can’t remember what we came up come Monday
:biglaugh:

TGIF...too bad it's the 13th!

Tsk, tsk, CB! Just because it's happy hour is no excuse to let it be amateur hour, too! :D We write our notes on cocktail napkins and number them. It's just reading our writing that's the hard part!

Between lipstick stains, smeared ink and water rings, well...I'm thinking of adding "Cocktail napking reading" to the list of skills I'm to be competent at. Just curious what the training is for that.

Hmmm...more time in bars???....darn!...the price I pay to be in Q.A. :vfunny:

Better yet...how to audit my comptency? I'm thinking a pub crawl might be rather suitable!

Just be sure to date and retain those napkins as records per your record retention procedure.

HAHA If only it was that easy most of the time.

That competency is one I think I could master! Would need lots of training hours though.

Hmmm…just need to evaluate the effectiveness now
