re: Million Post thread,

I guess in retrospect, waking up at 6:30AM every Monday to hang out with autistic people in a psych ward really isn't that great of an idea.

It'll be a good experience though.

re: Million Post thread,

They have this thing called the Snooze room and I swear it is straight out of some psychothriller horror movie, but apparently it relaxes them.

I guess it is a thing: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snoezelen

re: Million Post thread,

Autistic people are hella strong. You're going to get man handled in that snooze room.

I've never personally dealt with any autistic people. Would be interesting.

Now that VS fixed the iPhone app, I can start posting more around here.

re: Million Post thread,

Man, someday I hope to have myself a snooze room. Looks like one could get some serious sleeping done in there.

You do realize that autism is a spectrum disorder with a wide array of symptoms right?

BTW did you get the other dude fired?

re: Million Post thread,

I've only interacted with a couple of autistic people, both were really friendly, they just didn't seem to understand how much power they wielded. My initial post wasn't meant as an attack on autism, I was more just poking fun at Brian.

Oh, and I'm still waiting on the verdict. I had a kick in the nuts this morning, a company called me up, I'm perfect for the job and the phone conversation was going great, then came 'so why did you leave your last employer?' ... 'I was dismissed' ... 'oh, I can't put you forward'

That's the 3rd phone conversation like this that I've had in the past week.

This could be harder to bounce back from than I expected.

re: Million Post thread,

Just say it wasn't working out. You don't have to say you were fired... Hell, you could day they there was limited job growth, didn't like the direction of where your job was going, didn't want to be limited on job growth.

re: Million Post thread,

I should have followed this story a little closer... hopefully you don't go with Hyperion's "deny everything!" method (no offense Hyperion), I don't think it is a smart play in the long run (or in the short run, as you just noted).

Are you in the process of an appeal? There has to be some way for you to make it difficult enough for them to allow you to leave with some sort of resignation agreement. Do you have representation through this process? I'm assuming there's no Union? Have you consulted with an attorney?

I had my appeal hearing last Thursday. I am still waiting on the results, although the feeling I got from the meeting was very much a 'this isn't going away' one.

I am trying to make it difficult for them though, if they want to continue with this dismissal, I pretty much told them that unless the same punishment was handed to the other guy (who thus far has had no retribution), then I would be taking it to a tribunal.

I consulted with a solicitor who told me they were within their rights to dismiss me. He basically said that in 2012 you can't get away with this kind of stuff, even if it is outside of work hours and away from the company premises.

re: Million Post thread,

Just tried to go back via search function and fill myself in on that predicament of yours.. search wasn't having it, unfortunately. At any rate, best of luck man.. was it technology (Facebook) related? We certainly do live in a "unique" era.

Having some trippy ass dreams lately. Every dream character I can recall from last night was someone either an old friend or acquaintance I've met prior, although at one point I was drinking water from a bubbler.. ehrrm, water fountain, and there was a face from a distance. She was in a classroom, I was in a hallway, and we both just froze and stared at each other. No idea who she was.
