RE: [Histonet] Friday Hour of Fuming

From:"Ingles Claire"

Normally I would join in the Friday Fuming (and probably will on a regular basis in the future), but I want to add a little hope to my fellow hard working histotech. I got a surprise raise today!!! I guess nagging does help sometimes. Our union (yes we HAVE to belong to a union here) has re-negotiated our contract and we were bumped up a pay level.  I guess that softens the ego blow that we belong to the same union as the housekeeping and food service people, and not with the rest of the clinical core lab staff union. (I have NO idea how that came about, don't ask). So all those salary surveys may be worth something after all. Keep up the fight! Miracles do happen.

Yep, but it was explained to me that it was to allow for fresh ice to
make its way into your glass along with the beverage.

Along those lines.  Have you ever ordered a pitcher of your favorite
beverage and had your waitress (excuse me, wait person) pour the drink
out of the side of the pitcher.  Instead of the front like it was

I suggest we have a Friday Hour of Fuming in order to allow us to rid
ourselves of the mental flotsam and jetsam that have accumulated during
the week. For example.... I'd like to Fume against "lip drip".  It would
seem to me that after years and years of R&D, someone could perfect a
liter/gallon container that didn't piddle all over everything when
pouring.  The beaker people fixed that YEARS ago. A small adjustment in
the shape of the lip would solve that annoyance!

I feel SO much better! Next?
