    Well done bestie. The salary thing is IMO, a matter for you, but regarding telling your old employer, I'd say defo work out a notice period as soon as the new job is 100% in the bag.

    Congrats, bestie! Always counter.

    I'd give the contract company at least two weeks notice - longer if it's standard for your industry or you think they'll need more time than that to move all your stuff around (although it sounds like they won't). Only wait til the last minute if you are 100% fine with burning every bridge you have there and if you have a good reason to believe they'll fire you as soon as you give notice anyway.

    Glad you're at least mostly hanging in there, Dave! And congratulations, Tony! New jobs are always exciting.

    Also--my medical transition has now officially begun! I used my new testosterone prescription for the first time at 10:30 this morning.

    10:31 -- No beard yet.
    10:35 -- No beard yet.
    10:47 -- No beard yet . . .

    Congrats Ben! If I could donate you my seven or eight extremely healthy chin and neck follicles that produce luscious thick dark hairs, I would.

    Alas Poor Yorick, I am more hirsute by way of chin than I am by top of dome. PM me for a trade. :p

    Well they are firm on the offer, but I'm glad I asked. Doesn't hurt to ask. I have essentially verbally accepted, but I asked for them to delay the offer letter as that starts the countdown for the drug test so wish me luck on peeing in a cup!

    We can all feel thankful that these drug tests don't require stool samples.

    besties it's wednesday! that's pretty unremarkable i know, but all day until just now i thought it was tuesday, which is the opposite of how this normally works. so i got a free small endorphin rush instead of a crushing blow to the gut when i realized i was wrong.

    As previously noted I never don't know what day it is. Our lobby guy (that may not be his official job title) calls it out as we arrive, to make absolutely sure that we are never in doubt. "Happy Hump Day!" (that's today!). Tomorrow is "Happy Friday's Eve!" (that's Thursday!)

    In case we miss that though there's also the elevator tv that tells us the day along with some kind of critical insight about leadership and management. Here's one:

    You do not lead by hitting people over the head -- that's assault, not leadership.” - Dwight Eisenhower

    My work schedule won't be normal for at least another 2-weeks, when I'll finally get my normal weekend (some combination of Tueday-Thursday nights) back; having Sunday/Monday's off feels way too weird. :p
