Good morning, GN. Popped some nyquil last night and got a good 8 hours of sleep -- I needed it.

Happy “I don’t think that’s a train” Wednesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Sven!

Sven -- I’m glad you got some good sleep last night. Is the Mountain Redoubt ready for the Pineapple Express that’s headed our way?

Yeah, just did a quick walkaround in preparation for STORM WATCH! From what I can tell, it won’t be bad here. I thought this was going to be a wet winter, but so far not so such. At least here -- you guys south of LA are looking to get more.

I’ve avoided these types of corporate bullshit training classes for 10 years, but today I am forced to attend “What’s my communication style?” class for two hours.

That’s amazing that you’ve managed to avoid that for so long, Sven. I think I’ve gone through about four different versions of that.

Teh bestest place ever has not been very big on this carp and my previous department not at all. The only thing we have to do annually is sit though and test on security. Mostly this is because this is a private company.

Fifty more minutes to go.

Done. Finally. Didn’t participate much -- multi-tasked on some real work.

Did you learn your communication style? Did you learn how to leverage your communication style to best communicate with those with other styles? Did they expect you to memorize everyone’s communication style (or to wear it as a badge) so you could increase communication throughout the company? Did you ask which style “passive-aggressive” fits under? What about “shift the blame”? Or “because I said so”?

You’ve taken the same class, haven’t you, Paddy?
