It's almost certain that Tobey identified a cost-saving measure related to some work project. He can't disclose the particulars of the project or company business, so he can't really share the specifics.

I doubt it was HR related, although that is certainly more salacious.

More work same pay

The first one would have been correct, but said promotion is not happening, which I'm ok with because my current boss is super nice and the guy who I would've reported to is kinda a dick minus the kinda.

On the subject of my boss, she emailed me today asking to please be more serious with my time card comments after Mondays "spent most of day trying to figure out why thingamadoodle not interacting with whatsamajig; thingamadoodle now interacting with whatsamajig" and Wednesdays "worked from 7am to 8pm still slight traces of blood in coffeestream"

I never got an offer. Basically, yesterday, a person in a very important position in our operation... parted ways with the company... in the middle of the shift (protip: if you are at a UPS facility anywhere but the bathroom, you are on camera), so my department manager, district manager and division manager (boss' boss, boss' boss' boss and boss' boss' boss' boss) got together and decided they wanted to recommend me for the now-vacant position. However, it was just a recommendation to the ops manager, he had someone else in mind, and it's ultimately his decision how to staff his facility. It would have been a sideways promotion for me, going from Industrial Engineer to Operations Supervisor, but for the guy who is getting it, it is a straight up promotion and zero dilemma. Plus I would have had to get there by 6 at the latest every day whereas in my current job I get there at 8 on a normal day but don't actually have set hours.

So there's this program at work that you use to update the layouts of the sorting machines. It's been broken for months, and nobody has been able to make updates, and the guy who wrote it no longer works here and left zero comments in the code. I kinda said I knew Visual Basic in my job interview, so my boss figured I could fix it. I spent an hour every day for a month learning vba, found the bug and fixed it.

Now all the updates everyone tried to make went through when they weren't expecting it and a lot of people are super pissed at me.

Pretty sure you just volunteered for all future troubleshooting endeavors, too.

Yeah that's what happened to the guy who had my job until 2013. The reason he doesn't work here anymore is because Google offered him a job so he works there now.
