    I adulted today by going to work, taking care of my pets, voting and buying alcohol. That's a very successful day for me :hungry:

    @Ablazeintheflames I'm sorry your answer sounds like someone around the age of 18. I don't think it quite counts as adulting. No male strippers for you :smuggrin:

    So today I started by not adulting. I went back to sleep because last week I worked 6 x 13-hour days straight and then flew home from Edmonton feeling sick and feeling the slight time-difference. But then I woke up, fixed the rolling clothes rack that fell apart on us a couple days ago. Then I went to a lunch meeting, had two quick phone meetings, and then a coffee meeting. Then I went home and cleaned up a bit, emailed fucking Lowe's who are assholes about my kitchen counter quote and then emailed a couple other suppliers to see about getting a better deal and tried to track down the CEO's email address so I can write him a complaint. Now I'm working on a competitive analysis report overnight because my girlfriend is mad at me so I may as well do something adultish. Oh, and earlier I added some expenses to my renovation spreadsheet. Excel is super-adulting.

    I had a shitty day which is the most adult.

    @Mark CM You win by far, I've sent the male strippers to your house. Hopefully they will get you out of the dog house with your gf.

    You should probably fake sick tomorrow and play video games all day, to make up for all that hardcore adulting.

    I arrived early to work for our weekly scheduling meetings. After that, had a meeting with an ex-employee and decided to give them another chance and hire them back. Then a meeting with three individuals from the retail side of the company, discussed their current roles and how they're going to be adjusted to be better streamlined and able to focus more on what they do best.

    Had a delicious lunch, 30 minutes to work on my actual work, then more meetings. Had to reprimand an employee, then a second meeting to try to sort out the relationship between three other employees that have been butting heads. I believe we sort of set up the situation they were in that created the competitiveness in the first place, so we clarified their future roles, separated their workloads so that they wouldn't overlap with one-another, and hopefully that's the first step so solve that issue.

    Now it's a new day. I came into work an hour early because we were supposed to discuss another employees switch from labour work to working in the office due to his failing health, but one of the other owners wasn't able to make it in in time so the meeting is postponed. So now I'm at work early for no reason, but that's fine because I need to try to redesign the entire floor plan for a 10 million dollar job by the end of the day and all i want to do is poste. Not all of these meeeeeetings all day long.
