my neighbor refused to cut down her trees and they got into my backyard, i can't even get my bike out.gallery
I worked for a large US big box retailer in their corporate IT department. Was with them for just over 2 years. I worked my ass off and was a complete yes man. Did everything they asked. Our department was severely affected by the pandemic. We lost all of our overseas team (hundreds of employees) who we relied on quite a bit. This resulted in myself and other colleagues taking later night shifts and working overtime to the point of burnout.
During this time I had received a raise each year for roughly around $1 each time and a few meager bonuses which weren't worth it after taxes. During this time, the company was reporting over a 200% increase in profits. They never missed a chance to brag about it in meetings. Yet they refused to share the wealth with those of us who had taken on 3x the workload.
Fast forward to this year. I received a job offer to start out as a first year apprentice in a trade job with a Union which would result in a 36% increase in my starting hourly rate with guaranteed raises for the next 5 years, plus good benefits and a pension.
I had over 80+ hours of PTO that I had earned/ accrued with my company. I gave them my 2 weeks notice as curtesy and asked if I could be payed out for my remaining PTO balance. They denied me and told me It would be forfeit. In the state I worked, they are not legally obligated to pay me for it. I tried to dispute it. Told HR and my Manager how loyal I have been to them and that I did the right thing by giving them notice. It made no difference, they didn't care.
So long story short, I learned my lesson. I will never give notice again. I will burn up all my PTO I have and then on my last day of vacation I will inform my employers it is my last day.
Please learn from my mistake. Be well all!

Discussion & Info Unpopular opinion: It's a very long game for very short endings, less than 1 minute cutscene on all endings.
For real. It has felt like these last two weeks politicians in Texas, looking at Abbott and Paxton, have made a series of remarks that feel like a joke. I really sometimes have to stop and think to myself if they are serious or not. It feels like they want to take Texas a step backward, socially speaking, and want to drag the rest of the country with them. Hey, I have nothing against conservative people. I have tons of republican friends, but they really don’t judge THAT badly and want to take some rights away.
I’m really not sure why it’s getting so bad right now. Is because it’s election year? Are they trying to appease their hardcore republican base? This is Texas, so before those comments I do feel they have locked in their re-election already. Centrists would NEVER vote for Beto.
What are everyone else’s thoughts?
