I am socially inept and often overshare or undershare personal info with no real sense of when it's appropriate to do so. Your interpretation is probably correct but there's always that.

 

There's a lot more backstory that makes it stick with me like it did. Decades of stuff that doesn't bear repeating here (it's not interesting, just part of the gestalt). So to have him now want to talk to me makes me think he's simply using my good natured-ness that he's wanted nothing of for all these decades.
So, not pissing me off. But annoying.

Over/undersharing without being appropriate? Brother!

Worked with Bob for 30+ years. A serious guy, but I respected him. Still, we never became good friends.

We retired simultaneously (same age) and with my new job I contacted him to see if he was interested in being part of it. He has different skills than me and would be a good addition. He declined, which is fine.

Since then he's called me twice. The first time, "how're you doing, Steely?" and I thought maybe I'd broken some ice. But, he just wanted info on a job I'd tried and didn't care for. So it was a fact finding mission on his part, not a friendly call.

Then, he calls me again yesterday. "How're things going, Steely?" and I mention the few things that have been interesting lately. He gives up no personal info, and..wants to know about the job I"m doing and is there room to hire him too.

So, it's annoying. I really want to block him, just so I don't get suckered into thinking he really cares about me, when really I'm just being Glassdoor for him. But, blocking someone I've known for 30+ years feels a little petty, right?

Answer: "Lump sum." No "thanks, that's fantastic!" or address. 
 

I can send my address...just sayin'!
  


Well it was really a two-page advertisement, which the customer is paying $2000 for. I asked if they wanted it as one big ad file or two pdfs, and asked for the official size of their full page so I could build it right the first time. They said two pdfs and *crickets*

The compressor on our freezer went out some months ago. Moved everything to the neighbor's freezer. Local appliance place ordered a new compressor, one day delivery, installed it.

Technician said there's a weak link in almost every new fridge/freezer - the epoxy(?) where they seal the system at the factory. After a few years it develops pinhole leaks. When he installed the new compressor he added proper service ports like A/C units have - eliminates the weak link and allows testing/service.

All manufacturers try to keep costs low, and pass their 'savings' along to the customer as 'costs'. An upgraded unit is much less likely to fail again, at least not in the same way.

We're lucky to have a great appliance repair outfit close by. Maybe get on your local Nextdoor and see if there are any recommendations?
Good luck...

Ever-changing requirements for password complexity.

But not telling me what the new requirements are, so I have to keep trying new ones, really pisses me off.

Guess, I won't login to work until I can find someone to let me know.
