So now I have my own Caseworker.


Recommended Posts

His name is Brian. I have a case number and everything. My caseworker will be here some time today to “Address My Case”. But first I had to fill out the online questioner. 
 

Has anyone in the house had Covid-19 in the last 60 days?

Has anyone’s in the house tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 30 days?

Will adequate parking be provided for my caseworker?

Will all pets be secured in a safe and humane manor while my caseworker is in the home?

Etc. Etc. Etc………

My Case? Domestic violence? Legal issues? Terminal illness? No! The furniture store is delivering a freaking television. 
 

EVERYONE HAS LOST THEIR MINDS!

Depends on whether you live in a regular house or a manor. If you live in a manor, you can probably afford a pretty good sized Television.

man·or

noun
noun: manor; plural noun: manors
  1. a large country house with lands; the principal house of a landed estate.

Short answer...YES!!  Why would they even call a delivery "person" a "Case Worker".  Is that like garbage man is now Sanitary Engineer???  Friggin disgusting...:shoot-me:

I used to assemble battery packs. Some technical knowledge needed but basically assembly work. They had me listed as a Electrochemical Technician because somehow it gave them a lower insurance rate.

They just left. They said I will get a survey to fill out. If I understand that the software was designed for HOME HEALTH CARE WORKERS and not delivery drivers the survey makes more sense. 
 

The boss was real paranoid about Covid and wanted a program with the Covid questions.

I was sent paperwork to fill out for an eye doctor visit. They want to know my SEXUAL ORIENTATION, PREFERRED PRONOUN, and GENDER IDENTITY. I wrote in Missionary, Master, and Alpha Male.

I love this.  Imma show up for my next appt with the retina specialist wearing tight leather pants and fill in "Missionary, Mistress, and She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed."

I used to do technical support.  They called it customer support so they could justify paying us the same amount as somebody who could check on the status of your order of macadamia nuts.

My wife has been through that. Downgrade in name. Same job. Less pay.

I'm sure they thought it was a clever Jedi mind trick.  We all thought it was a kick in the teeth.

They were sneaky about it. They didn’t cut her pay. They just made her ineligible for bonuses or future raises until she was inline with her new status. Basically made it sound like she was being overpaid. She left.

Sounds about right.  Same with my Customer Support Rep job.  I left and the company pretty much tanked.  There was no correlation between the two events, but it felt good to get out of the ship before it started to sink.  Then, stand on the shore and point and laugh.

Been there done that. A company I worked for should have been an internet giant but the owner had no vision. I bailed early. It was sad to see good people go down with the company. They had invested everything into the company but leadership was stuck in a 1950s business model.

I remember watching Carly Fiorina leverage H.P. to the gills so she could merge it with Compaq.  Her rationale was that H.P. was a computer company.  So, she forced them into a very low margin portion of a shrinking market.   I am just aghast at some of good looking speech making sales people that get to the top of companies while they have absolutely zero insight into market trends. 

Then, later when she was laying off the rank and file of a company renowned for its corporate culture she had the arrogance to say something to the effect that these were successful people who now had the opportunity to go be successful somewhere else.   She gutted H.P. for no good reason.

Which is what they wanted.

Our jobs at ______ level or lower require drones, not thinkers.

Not no good reason. She got her profit sharing, stock options (probably revalued as market share prices dropped), buyout to finally get her gone, and wasn’t she suggested as Governor or even President caliber?

Don't get me started on "Case Workers". We have had quite a run on appliances of late along with several other things. Show up late, twice. I guess if you can't be here at 4PM, 9:45PM is just as good.

Third robot vacuum, second refrigerator, and a MIA contractor.

The questioner would probably have been met with a lot of sarcasm. Glad we didn't have to deal with that. I usually get a survey request within the hour of a delivery. Oddly, both of these are MIA. Recon why? LOL
