I wish LinkedIn made it easier to "remove connections / delete people - over the years I have just connected with way too many people outside of my industry and headhunters that just need to go - anyways, my goal is to try and remove 10 a day!

In the app, click on the people icon at the bottom. Select My Communities to get to your connections. Select Connections. Scroll to the person. Click the three dots on the right and select delete.

This may be of some interest to folks here, particularly the mechanical folks. Enjoy:

I'm back from the land of Subaru's, roof racks, blue hair, and endless boogers.  I'd rather not be at work today.

I embraced my inner 80yo this weekend. I'm moving in with my boyfriend and his house was built in the 30s. I cleaned the basement of as much cobwebs and dust as I could (it was never sealed UGH). And I washed down the built-in pantry shelves (tucked away in the room where the oil tank is so that also got washed). And her'es where the 80yo comes in - I lined the shelves lol. It's unpainted wold slats in a dusty basement. It made sense to me to do this plus I picked a white liner so now the room feels brighter.

Denver area.  I had never seen so many roof racks in my life.  Bonkers, I tell ya!

The number of subies with roof racks in the Spokane/CDA metro area is mystifying.

Ummm so worth it! I would have lined the shelves too. And that was very nice of you to do all of that cleaning.

Yay for splitting rent!!

I'm pretty excited about the money savings - so is he lol
It'll be a challenge for a bit - our definitions of clean are different  but I was raised by my grandmother who had me dusting the rungs of the dining room chairs every 2 weeks so I tend to notice things most people don't lol

To be fair, the roads here can go from 2wd is ok to 4wd required without any sort of warning or indication.

Serious question here - 

How does one coach his employee to stop making 30-second question / answer discussions last 30 minutes with EVERYONE?  It's his personality and he can talk forever about everything steering from the original topic to another seamlessly.

@Master slacker have you looked at askamanager.org? She's got loooooaaaaaddddssss of articles there and very likely has answered it (plus you'll get to read others experiences in the comments)

sidenote: this employee sounds like one of my worst office nightmares...
