The skinny cereal boxes they make these days really trip my trigger. I set an unopened box of Raisin Nut Bran on the table at breakfast and it fell over on its side. Am I crazy for believing that a cereal box should be able to stand under its own weight?

We have like 4 of those plastic cereal containers which work great because my kids would leave the boxes opened and the cereal would get stale. My pet peeve is that the ones I have are a bit too small for the large boxes of cereal so we always have bags of random cereal with just a bit in them in the cupboard. Use up the bag cereal first stupid kids!!!!

That's a great idea because another problem with cereal these days is that the bags inside the box tend to rip down the side instead of opening evenly across the top which can lead to a low quality cereal pour.
My kids hate to eat the last bowlful of cereal in the box because it has too many crumbs and is mushy.

Start crushing all the cereal until your children learn a little gratitude

Pardon my low social media IQ but I thought Linkedin was like a job board? Also, that guy doesn't look heavy enough to need 4 dudes holding him up and I don't think the last 3 guys are doing much anyway.

it's like facebook for jobs/business. so like instead of sharing stuff about your dumb kids you share stuff about your dumb job. it's great for seeing who works where

when someone prefaces a statement with "honestly..." or "to be honest with you..." and then they say something that isn't brave/controversial/hot take/etc.

Dog Instagrams, but really only the captions written from the perspective of the dog and refer to the owners as mommy and daddy.

People who just incorrectly use/don't look at your status on teams, or just call you or interrupt you out of the blue with no like "hey got a sec, I really need this but it can wait until you're finished" IM sort of thing if it is important. Rarely, if ever, do you need to call someone out of some sense of emergency for work.

Like getting IM'd about trivial/unnecessary things during the middle of a call, or just ignoring the "red" or "presenting" icons for said trivial or unimportant stuff that can either wait or just send me an email to answer at my convenience. It's distracting and inconsiderate.

It usually always ends up being the same type of person, one who poorly plans their work, or doesn't care or think about how their actions impede on another person's time. If I need to IM someone I always try to lead with a "when you got time" or similar so I can sort of "reserve" time to talk to you, but also acknowledging that hey, you probably got something going on at that moment, so don't feel like you gotta drop what you're doing to come take care of lil ol me.

I don't use teams but can't you just turn off IM notifications?

Yes, but like there is not a good way (that I know of) to selectively block notifications for like if I'm on a call already or something, the kicker/killer is when working from home, my company decided to do away with phones all together, so teams is the phone. And while I don't want to answer a bunch of crap if I don't want to, I am obligated to to answer "my phone" at work, which is teams now is.

My issue is much more with the fact of respecting trying your best to not like, impede me during busy/meetings/do not disturb times. It makes me feel old AF but at least when I started until basically this pandemic I don't ever remember having that much an issue with someone waiting til I was done in a conference room or even if online to talk to me. Now it's just inundation, no matter my status or what I'm doing and a decent amount of it can easily wait. Are there sometimes you need to get a hold of me cause it's important? Sure, but like, you don't need to ask me what to charge something to right this second, or what color this should be, or etc etc. It's less a notification issue as it is "read the room" thing.  Unless your crap is paramount, just back the eff off and take a number.

IM is like way more casual than email. I cannot imagine being distracted by an IM when I don't choose to be.

I send IMs when people are busy or DND because I know that they can look at it at their convenience later.

I guess calling may be different, but I guess I dont know what you cannot just ignore it.

You are obliged to answer? They don't trust you to decide for yourself when to answer the phone or not?

I have a desk phone, a cell phone, and MSTEAMS. If I am on a teams call and my desk phone rings, I don't get pet peeved.

I probably have a different kind of job tho. Maybe bandyman only interacts with people who are MSTEAMS power users?

I have to share my screen a lot on work calls and I've received a few unprofessional IM's that have forced me to stop sharing my screen. This has resulted in me improving my IM etiquette.

That's why I turn off all slack notifications all the time. If people want instant answers they can gtfo

Disable notifications in meetings. Pretty simple solution.

Works great when it’s a teams call, less so if it’s a client’s zoom call and you have to manually set do not disturb
:adios:

Rather than share the screen I just share the application that had the content I’m presenting. UNLESS it is a somewhat informal call in which case here’s what you do, foist, you set your wallpaper to an embarrassing photo. Next, you share that screen, but make sure you have the spreadsheet or ppt or whatever up on the screen. Next, you move your mouse over to your other monitor or your ribbon at the bottom. This will temporarily cause your screen to just show the wallpaper instead of what you’re presenting so everyone can see your funny embarrassing photo and it will seem like you did it on accident oh man it’s great
