      General Rules for Planet Janet Welcome to Planet Janet! The main objective of this board is to express your love for Janet, your opinions, and to interact with an important segment of the Janet fandom.  To enjoy your experience here, below are general rules and guidelines to make your experience here be successful: The N Word Please be aware that the N word is going to be filtered on this forum. Most importantly, this word is not acceptable on this forum in any form; therefore, if it is used again by ANY member on here, it will result in an immediate and permanent ban. Consider this the first, only, and last warning regarding this. Music Download | Copyright Infringement Illegal download links to music from any artist are not permissible to be posted on this forum at any time. If you have posted an illegal download link, you must take it down immediately. Failure to remove the links, and/or subsequent, repeated offenses will result in disciplinary action up to and including a permanent ban from the forum. Fan Threads of Other Artists Generally, we like to keep threads and/or topics about other artists within an Official Artist Thread.  This helps to eliminate clutter and redundancy throughout the forum and allow a one-stop shop to view comments on that particular artist not pertaining to Janet.  If there is HUGE news related to an artist and generates a lot of discussion, it is okay to have a standalone thread on that topic outside of the Official Thread. A good debate is OKAY in the Official Threads of other artists.  Official Threads are not complete sanctuaries of devotion of that particular artist; however, there is a need to be civil with other members.  Please refrain from personal attacks and arguments that devolve into personal attacks. Additionally, do NOT use Janet as means to defend an artist.  This forum is made in her honor, and putting her down to boast your particular artist is prohibited. Exercise good judgment and common sense.  If not, then the moderating team will exercise disciplinary action depending on the egregiousness of the action.  Please utilize this announcement as a first warning. Personal Attacks

      Each member has a warning percentage - most of them are at zero right now but a few have been warned before. Each warning is worth 10%, and once it gets to 100% the member is automatically banned from the forum. 

      Each time a member gets into an argument with another member that includes personal attacks, if it is reported or viewed by a member of the moderating team, each participant in the personal attack will get an increase in their warning percentage.  They will be notified via PM, and, prior to posting again, will receive a receipt acknowledging that warning before they can post again. The Moderating Team will never divulge a member's warn percentages on the forum or to other members.

      What this means is you are now responsible for your own future on this forum. The Moderating Team will not keep asking you to stop and being ignored. Learn to let things go and learn to moderate yourself before posting; if you end up banned it will be your own fault. Personal attacks and include attacks on one’s race, age, religious creed, color, gender, national origin, physical, mental or visual disability, medical condition, ancestry, marital and military status, pregnancy or sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and general physical appearance/looks. Depending on the nature of the personal attack there will be corrective action up and including permanent banning. If you have any inquiries about your warning percentage, feel free to PM a mod for an answer. If you need any clarification on the rules, feel free to reach out to The Moderating Team.

Okay, so I'm working my way to get back into shape. It is holiday season and that is always the most dangerous time for me. I am getting back into my diet because we are having a Holiday Party for my company and I would like to wear a nice dress for this event. Of course, if everything goes great, I will have found another, better paying job, and I won't have to worry about that :lol: But that's another story.

So I'm watching what I'm eating. However, I do splurge a little bit on my breakfast and I refuse to compromise I love to go to Subway and get the Western Egg and Cheese on flatbread. This is what it looks like on a wheat muffin:

It's egg white, green peppers, and onions. I actually don't get cheese (I can do without), so I add jalapenos, mustard, and just a small helping of ranch. And I have it ready on some flatbread. It's nice and spicy and wakes me up in the morning. However, the jalapenos don't help my case to prove that I am not, in fact, Hispanic :lol:

But I think I'll update this with more of what I eat and what I make whenever I'm bored lol.

What to take from this blog: I am dieting, even though I'm splurging with the ranch a bit. Moderation is key :P

Much love,

Angie

Being Sassy

By Angela,

Putting people in their place when they try and get cute.

So yesterday at work, I received an email from one of the temporary agencies that my company utilizes. The agency rep wanted to know the status of a few invoices that were billed to our company. She had also cc'ed her boss on the email, who is the Branch Manager of that area. I informed her that from my understanding, the checks for those payments are on their way and she should be receiving them soon. The Agency Rep politely thanked me for my response and left it alone. Her boss, the Branch Manager, however tried to get smart. She responds directly to me and said "What does on the way mean exactly? Was it mailed can I get a check #?"

Now, my initial reaction was to tell her off about her poor grammar since I am a customer of hers and I know she needs our company's business because my company is a big account of hers. But I decided I was going to leave that funky email with the poor grammar alone. Until... she realized who she sent the email to and tried to recall it. I received an email notification that the Branch Manager wanted to recall that recent message and I received the notification with HIGH importance. I then realized that I was going to teach her a lesson. Don't try to be all rude and sassy with me, and then try and delete your evidence. That just doesn't work. SO I denied her request to recall that message. What's even worse is that after I denied her request, she tried to recall the message AGAIN. So I did the first thing that came to mind, and I hit "Reply." In my response email, I cc'ed her subordinate, the polite Agency Representative, and I also cc'ed MY BOSS, the Human Resources Manager; the HR Manager is the one that makes decisions regarding our choice for temporary agencies and she comes from a customer service background.

So in my email, I broke it down for her. I informed her that I received the information regarding the invoices and the adjustments that were appended to the invoices two weeks ago. I told her that in case she forgot, our Accounting Department takes about two weeks in issuing checks and if she and her team were more efficient in sending me the adjustment, they'd have their check by now. I also told her the date the invoice was posted in the Accounting software system, and I informed the poor dear that "on its way is exactly what it means: it's on its way. And no, I don't have a check number. I hope I have provided you with sufficient information, but should you have anymore inquiries, please do not hesitate to let me know."

It took her about an hour to respond to my email, in which she simply thanked me and said that she will do the best she can to be more efficient.

Lesson to be learned: If you're going to be a bitch in a professional environment, PLEASE be careful who you're dealing with. The poor dear was so shocked when she saw my reply, the Agency Rep was calling me apologizing.

So needless to say, I had some fun yesterday :)

Much love,

Angie :blush:
