Conversations I'm tired of having, Part II

Jennifer, these faxes weren't initialed, so I just want to make sure that you know to stamp and initial them after you send them.

Yeah, I know.

Well I was just checking because these ones aren't initialed.

Well you sent those, so maybe you should initial them.


Jennifer, this is not my patient, why is he on my schedule?

I don't know, Danielle schedules the rechecks so I'm not sure how it happened. Do you want me to move him onto Les's schedule?

Jennifer, you're not answering my question, why is he on my schedule in the first place?

I don't know, because I didn't schedule him. I'd imagine it was an honest mistake on Danielle's part, but I'm guessing.

Jennifer, you need to take responsibility for your actions.



You've been paying me for 20 hours a week for the past 3 weeks, and I work 25.

Well, you're salaried.

When I was hired, I was told that the position paid $XX/Hour, and my paychecks reflect 20 hours per week at that rate. If I'm salaried, I expect my salary to reflect how much I'm working. Otherwise I can just work less.

Well we need you 25 hours per week, I thought I made that clear.

Do you know that legally, an employee can only be salaried if they are both full-time and working in a supervisory position? Because I'm neither.

I need to see my patients.


  1. I read an article about google getting into trouble for using keyword searching of website content to actively target certain audiences/social cohorts for thier banner advertisements. They flat out denied they do it, claiming it would be unethical and if there are adverts with topics which seem to be related to the content of the website then it is purely conicidence. (they got into trouble becasue there were incindents like when there was a news story on a website about a car crash due to failed brakes, there was also an advert about free brake checks at a local garage, kinda sick i know)

    Anyway, you probably already know this. But my point was, you have two google ads attached to your blog, one is for dental insurance, the other is for a guide to doing well in interviews.


  2. It's not a coincidence. It's in the advertisement policy as a matter of fact.
