As you get ready to travel for the holidays, maybe you should reconsider where you head out to for the family vacation.
We’ve all heard horror stories about hours (and days!) long waits at the airport as everybody rushes to get home to visit with family and friends. But maybe you should choose where you go a little better if you really want to save airport time at all.
Web Watch knows many new mothers who go through the “new mom phase” where they cut their hair short, so they don’t have to take the time to wash it while their baby sits quietly in the corner of the bathroom playing with empty shampoo bottles.
There’s the guy who flips the newspaper under his arm and makes a big production of heading down the hall for his morning constitutional. There’s the woman who takes WAY too long in the far stall to not have something medically wrong with her.
There’s those that abuse the single-seater, and those that stink up the community space.
Not everybody has a safe desk job these days. There are still people out there that are required to make this country run. Without them working hard, working diligently behind the scenes doing all that awesome grunt work, this place would fall apart.
We need men and women in these roles. They’re good at what they do, and the world is a better place because of them. Nobody ever aspires to be a desk jockey when growing up. Fantasy playtime often involves these career paths.
Achieving the proper Work-Life Balance for employees is something that every company and manager tries to emphasize with their employees, but in reality we know that it really never works out.
Some would say that some countries in Europe have it better. We recall one story where a bank requires – REQUIRES – their employees to take a full four weeks off when they go on vacation. The theory is that any banking irregularity could be hidden by an employee who can cover their tracks every two weeks, but a four week vacation should expose any particular issues that the employee was involved with.
Some companies never recover from a problem, while others openly address the issue at hand and do everything they can to win back customers. Coca-Cola has done it, others have as well.
It’s easy when you’re perennially at the top of the list of MOST REPUTABLE COMPANIES, like Amazon, Coca-Cola, Apple, and Disney tend to find themselves every year — but it’s those struggling at the bottom of the list that really have a rough time at it.
People in China are stereotypically believed to live longer, healthier lives – primarily based on their dietary habits. And as stereotypes go, that’s really not a bad judgement call to make on anyone’s part. Who wouldn’t want to be naturally considered healthier than those around you, solely based on your heritage or where you currently live?
Well, perhaps there’s something more at steak (HA!) than what we think is happening, diet-wise.
But some bars and restaurants have figured out a way to make it happen, and make a ton of money doing it. Whether they happen to be in the right place at the right time, or whether they’re a destination unto themselves, these TOP RESTAURANTS IN THE COUNTRY have proven that where there’s a will, there’s a way to make some dough in the food business.
We all have played BUZZWORD BINGO in our office meetings, conferences, and presentations.
Sometimes those corporate phrases are appropriate. Other times, it’s just a talking head trying to sound more important than they really are. Everyone knows they have a job to do (one would think), so we don’t need the demotivating words and phrases that oft-repeated without any real substance behind them.
More and more Americans are being hit with higher grocery store bills, and it’s not all due to rising gas prices leading to an increase in transportation costs.
No, you aren’t seeing things when you browse through the “new low prices” sign at the grocery store — those “low prices” really aren’t lower than what they have been.
