2021.10.25 14:57 pliskin42 Thoughts on taking a job offer
I'm in kinda an odd position regarding a job offer and I was hoping to get other people's thoughts. I definently don't want to stay where I'm at for a long time. But I'm not 100% sure this will be a good choice to leave for. I'll try and avoid too many identifying details for privacy reasons.
I currently work in office middle management at a small company which does construction work. I've been unhappy with the position for a number of reasons, but one of the biggest of which is the highly variable schedule. I.e., I'm excepted to drop everything and help cover field work shifts if we run short, while also getting my other duties done. So I'm often not finding out until the night before that I need to be in at 4am to go work a long shift on a job site etc. (often 12-18 hours including drive times etc). This usually happens at least a couple times a week, in addition to other times when I need to do things like run to other branches etc. My wife and I also are looking at eventually buying a house in a city which is in the opposite direction from my current position, and eventually I would like to reduce my commute time. Also, I'm mildly worried about some of the long term health and sustainability of the current company I am with. I think some of the moves they are making now will eventually bite them and might make it difficult for them to stay in business farther down the line.
I've been applying around, and haven't had much success with getting in the door for other potential office work. However, I just received an offer for a factory production facility working on the line. It would be more stable on what hours I would be working, 12 hour night shifts on a 2-2-3 schedule. It is a couple bucks more an hour, and they would cover more of my healthcare premiums. They also have an incentive program where you can be paid more if you bang out a lot of parts ( which at the high end would be several dollars more an hour). This is a union position, so dues would be involved. Also they offer some retirement plans which my current company doesn't.
I'm figuring i would probably be making/saving enough that it would be worth it to be in the union, especially if it stick with it for a while and gain some seniority. I probably won't have random crazy long shifts like I get currently, but the shifts I would be working would longer than what my standard 8 hour shifts I get most often at my current gig. However, I would have more days off consistently. So in a lot of respects like pay and benefits it seems like a wash, lateral move, or moderate improvement.
I'm worried that I'm going to hate factory production. I've never done it, and have pretty much always worked in office environments before. By all accounts it is hot/cold, sweaty, grimy, dirty physical work without a lot of breaks. I do that on occasion here, but it isn't all the time, and most days are downright light without much for me to do and with me being comfortable the entire time. Another concern would be family time. With the crazy days here I will often not get to spend much time with my wife/family currently, however, if I go over to nights, odds are that is going to be substantially worse since I will be sleeping during the day, going to work when she gets home from her job, and getting back right around when she is getting ready to leave.
I certainly don't want to get into and stay in a production position for the rest of my life. So there is some unknowns that are weighing on the situation as well. For one, the production job is a bigger company, so there is probably more opportunity for advancement. They said there was opportunity during the interview, but there is always a question of how real that is, and whether or not it is realistic for lower level union workers to be able to work their way up the corporate ladder. Similarly, while my pay isn't outstanding, my middle management titles along with the varied duties I have around my current position are probably more impressive than a production associate title. So if I did want to try and get into another office gig in the future this might be seen as a backwards step limiting my options.
What do you all think? Should I try and stretch this current crappy gig out longer and hold out for a better office job? Or should I take this marginally better paying/benefits factory job that is probably not going to be very pleasant and might be questionable when I try and advance out of it?

2021.10.25 14:57 1Lucia please help, my f3 menu is missing info. Reduced Debug Info not enabled.
I recently saw a video that shows a line of mob information. It's a lot of letters that show how many passive mobs, bats, monsters etc. are in the area. It's supposed to be between the "Local Difficulty" and "Sounds" line. Any ideas? I've tried going into creative which did nothing, I checked that the gamerule for reduceddebuginformation is disabled. Please somebody help!

Do you guys know the episode and the season where there's a scene where Russ blows raspberries on Marcedes' belly on a couch? I always thought this scene was funny, but I don't remember when it happens

2021.10.25 14:57 YouThinkWhatIsHot Film and tv references from characters in shows is bad dialogue.
I was watching “billions” the other day and I got really put off by every character being a cinephile with a compunction to reference something every other sentence.
Writers congratulations on your encyclopedic knowledge of the industry you work in, and I’m glad that makes you feel intelligent, but why is that the only way you can show that a financial analyst or lawyer is also intelligent?
How do I show this character isn’t “with it”? Let’s have them drop a reference to the Traveling Wilbury’s or Minority Report that a different character won’t get establishing the hierarchy. It’s bad writing when it feels like I’m watching a recreation of a conversation the writers room had but through the mouths of an attorney general, a pizza guy, and the babysitter.
It’s like a barber who gives everyone their own haircut and I can’t stop seeing it in a bunch of movies and tv.

2021.10.25 14:57 elian_x Informational Questions
I’m a freshmen college student and currently have an assignment to identify an individual working in an occupation you are interested in (Computer Science) and conduct an informational interview with them. (This could be done through messages ) In the interview, I will ask questions and learn, first hand, about the career and the path that led this professional to their current position. Can anyone help me answer some questions about their career in ComputerScience? Like I previously mentioned it can be through pms. ThankYou
