I was on a (mandated) training course this week where we were told not to use the term "standups" as it would be offensive to people who couldn't stand up. Instead we were supposed to call them "scrums" - it wasn't worth explaining what happens during one of those.
A lot time ago there was a new entry system installed and everyone had a badge with a mag stripe to swipe - then it was discovered the data wasn't being read and you could use a credit card, a library card, or a video rental membership card just as long as it had one of those strips on the back. Turned out getting all the software to really read them cost much more than the company was willing to pay.
Following this story I've been poking around the NHS site to see how to get my own medical history - so far it seems the only is to register, in person, at a GP and asking them to print it out. Don't know whether it's worth flying across the Atlantic just for that.
Unfortunately so much of the outsourced Tier-1 is rated based on how quickly they can move an incident from New to Resolved, and if that means installing the first thing they find then that's OK. Particularly if it means another incident gets opened because they're also rated on how many incidents the deal with.
Took the theory test a long time ago, I think it was around 40 multiple choice questions, but what stands out is someone failing and complaining that some of the questions she got wrong were about the different rules that apply to teen drivers and as she didn't have any children she shouldn't be expected to know the answers.
You can use your own with Comcast* but if you rent their badged version they'll give you a discount on some features (eg instead of $50 for unlimited data pay $10 to rent a router and unlimited data is only $15).
* being Comcast this will change depending where you live and which operator you spoke with last.
Currently I can be contacted via: Teams, Yammer, email [Outlook and web based], SMS, pager, telephone [Avaya on my laptop, a desk phone, a work issued iPhone], notifications from Office components, WhatsApp.
Perhaps one day there'll be enough time to do some work as well.
