You still have to submit to regulatory, logging etc.  One of the problems with agile is that people mistake the name, as you have, to mean 'take shortcuts'.

It's about delivering value quickly not shortcuts.

Honestly, neither me nor most of my partners have had much interest in that sort of apparatus.  I'm not sure if it's a real life thing that a lot of women are actually into, or if it's just an idea that has propagated through a fetishized view of girl-on-girl sex as presented in pornography intended for a male audience.

Is that sort of apparatus something that men like to imagine being put to use during girl-on-girl sex?  I've seen videos, of course, but I'm not sure how popular that sort of thing is in men's fantasies. I am under the impression that straight men and straight women alike are avid consumers of lesbian ****, but not sure what aspects of it they find most appealing.

I went back to work after almost 2 weeks away.

"Hey, stranger! I haven't seen you since last year!  HA! HA!"

It's going to be a long year.  At least that **** Murphy's Law calendar is gone.

Medical explanation of why deep breathing is calming.  Just dropping this here to read it later.

You really have a hate-on for someone who sounds like he’s pretty funny.  Lighten up.  He probably groaned inside when he saw you.... 

 “oh god....   the grumpy broad is back at work...   it was nice around here until the dark cloud arrived.  I’ll try and lighten the mood with a joke”.

Oh jeez, yeah.  This guy sounds like he's someone you could build a whole charm school around.

I'm fun at work.  I'm more fun than a barrel full of monkeys.

This guy just doesn't respect me. Earlier in my life I this would would have made me feel insecure and I would feel pressured to giggle at his dumb jokes or try other dumb things to win him over. But at this point in my life I've outgrown that.

It's not that he's not charming. I think it's that he's so completely unaware of how militantly stale he is.  Even Boring Stories Bob is pretty funny, except when he's telling boring stories.  Not so with Old Economy Steve. As an aside, he also has boring stories, except where BSB's boring stories are rambling narratives that don't have a point, OES's boring stories are basically just opportunities for him to drop names and remind everybody that he has lots of contacts in the industry.

Part of Agile is equality in collaboration of teams.  The dominant personality is definitely something I have not seen in the workplace (on a team at least) in a long time.

How can one be STALE and CHARMING simultaneously ?  Go back to your adjective bag and get two new ones.

I don't think they are contradictory adjectives. Lots of things can be both stale and charming (the Queen, for instance). Isn't that the whole appeal of dad jokes?

Is Steve like her?

Steve is not like the Queen.

I think Bubber's mention of dad-jokes is on the mark. I wouldn't say that Steve is "charming" per se, but I think words like affable or gregarious are closer to the mark. (is it my imagination, or is "affable" only ever used to describe fat guys?)
