1. Regularly buying lotto tickets multiple times a week.
2. Mentally scripted farewell emails months ago.
3. Already identified ever-shrinking list of preferred attendees to your going away lunch.

Bonus:
4. Inquiring about severance packages and upcoming layoffs, hoping maybe you're on the list.
5. Wondering how far you can stretch your 401k if you cash out now and take the tax penalty.
6. Checking LinkedIn multiple times a week to see who has visited your profile and check out new jobs that have been posted.
7. Still fantasizing about opening a restaurant in the tropical destination where you vacationed last July. Or a food truck in your home town.
8. Thoughts of "maybe working here wouldn't be THAT bad" keep crossing your mind whenever you visit your client's corporate headquarters.
9. Feeling joy for every coworker that escapes and sadness for the former coworkers that inquire about coming back.
10. Laying in hotel room bed at midnight, browsing Fishbowl and taking comfort in the fact that you're not alone.

Lol, adding onto this - feeling jealous of every co-worker who announces they are leaving... and then feeling terror as:
1) your internal clock starts ticking
2) you realize that you’ve been procrastinating on updating your resume, and
3) by the time you’re done with the resume, hiring period is coming to an end and you might just have to endure a few more months of depression

I work for a BB (private side) & actively manage my investment accts, and require sign-offs from compliance & direct VP on all buy/sell orders. Compliance signs off automatically, but VP continually declines out of fear of compliance (for possibly being in the wrong). I understand taking caution, but I can never get her authorization for single names bc of this, I have no private info on them nor are they in my industry. Has anyone dealt w this before? And what are some good approaches to take?

What’s the best way to compare lots of data with time stamps? I.e. you’re trying to evaluate the time different steps in a process take for multiple line items (10000 rows)

Current approach I’m doing is to subtract the times (in hh.mm.ss) from each other to get the duration of each step. Not sure if there’s an excel time stamp function that would make this easier. It’s not working well for times that were late PM and bleed into early next day AM.

What’s the consensus on tattoos in the insurance workplace? I’m in leadership and considering exploring my options due to recent personnel changes.

Nothing is offensive by any means.

Potentially a niche request, but any suggestions (other than ‘make it up’) for sourcing business results from clients/campaigns that you worked on earlier in your career before you realized it might be important to keep a record of that kind of thing for future resume writing.
