Coworkers

What's the last thing a coworker did that really pissed you off/annoyed you?

What type of work do you do?

I work in a restaurant as a host and I went in today on my day off to get my schedule and tip outs from last night. My host uniform is a black button up shirt and black dress pants. I came in wearing a long-sleeved yellow shirt and blue jeans. There was a line at the door, and as I walked by the girl who was supposed to be hosting, she said, "Go seat the door. I'm not clocked in." I was like, "Uh, I'm not even WORKING today, much less in uniform."

Normally something that small wouldn't have really bothered me but this girl is super lazy and will push her job off onto anyone else that she can, and the fact that there's literally no way she could have thought I was on the clock annoyed the shit out of me.

Does anyone use myfitnesspal and if so, is it screwed up for you? I've been trying to use it for the last two days and I can look up foods to add, but when I go to actually add it, instead of just looking it up, it leads me to a page that doesn't work. It has the information, but it doesn't add the food and calories and whatnot no matter how many times you click to add it. It never used to do that, and I've tried it on Firefox, Chrome, and IE, and nothing is working.

If not, describe your ultimate meal if price and calories weren't a problem?

For me, it's an appetizer of potato skins with bacon and an entree of steak with asparagus and a side salad of lettuce, croutons, carrots, broccoli, and corn, and a dessert split with my boyfriend of strawberry cheesecake.

What products do you insist on a certain brand?
I cannot imagine ever buying ketchup that isn't Heinz, and I only ever buy Snyder's Of Hanover pretzels.

What products do you have no problem buying a bargain brand?
Things like paper towels, trash bags, and toilet tissue I see no reason to buy name brand.

Finders Keepers, Losers Weepers

Pretend that you find a cat lurking around your home. It's too social to be feral (let's say it doesn't mind you being in its vicinity and likes to be pet), and it always looks well-fed.

Fast forward a few months to winter. The cat has been appearing less frequently, but looking more ragged each time, as if it doesn't have adequate shelter. After a long stretch where you start to wonder if the cat is dead, it appears at your doorstep. It's ears look frostbitten, and the rest of its body looks like it has seen some rough times.

On a scale of one to 10 - one being alright, 10 being "you're the worst! A blight on both of your houses!" - how bad would it be to take the cat to the vet, get it all fixed up and keep it as your own pet?

How do you politely tell your employee that you're not interested in having a text relationship? I gave one of my people my number for a job reference and he has sent me some texts. The first was, "What are you up to tonight?" which I ignored until the next day and said, "Oh, I was doing [whatever]. See you at work!" Today I got another text saying, 'Hey Ash."

I don't want it to be awkward-- what's the best way to say I just want a work relationship? I'm thinking something to do with how it's my policy not to befriend my employees.

I'm collating all the answers we have from our customer satisfaction survey onto a spreadsheet, and thinking there must be an easier way!
The answers are Excellent/Good/Poor etc, and i'm just wondering if there's a way I can get Excel to auto-count so I can just hit in a number rather than having to manually change the number each time I want to increase it?
I hope this makes sense!
