I think

I often times think I might not be cut out for Human Resources, but it's what I do and I'm good at it - so you'd think I'd stick to what I know right?
I think part of me stays really objective during situations, but another part of me gets a wee emotionally involved and I start to fight for "the little guy" vs fighting for the company I work for.  I get really wrapped up in a situation, especially if it's someone that I like vs someone that's a complete douchebag employee.  Not that that's a bad thing, b/c technically, I'm here for the employees and not necessarily just the company, but still...I wonder if I should try be one of those people that only cares about the company.

As if.
That's so not me.  I'm always going to be the HR person that fights for the employee - always.  I can't imagine it any other way.  Come to think of it, I think I'm always gonna be the person that fights for the employee regardless of whether or not I'm still in HR.  

Hmmm...I guess I really do care about people.

Riddle me this...

why why WHY do nice restaurants always have TV's in their bar areas?  WHY?  What is the point?  
With the exception of places like Mistral or Lark, I was shocked to see TV's at Palace Kitchen.  WTF?
It appears that almost every place I've been to for dinner - BAM!  There's a TV.  It just doesn't make sense to me - TV's in a restaurant says "sports bar" to me.  The last thing I want to see is some bloody sporting event on the tube when I'm trying to carry on a conversation or eat my meal.  It's distracting and really, aren't we surrounded by enough technological shit as it is?   

TV's - ok in your media room, living room, a sports bar or hell, any Irish bar for that matter, but in a nice restaurant?  NO.  Take those things out and replace them with some nice art.  Or a blank wall.
