Decisions and the escape artist

By , September 29, 2017 7:23 am

99% of the time it’s easy for me to make decisions*. I either go with my gut, or have lots of good research to go off of (thanks, Steven!).

So when I do have to stop and think about something, and actually make a pro/con list? Ugh.

*Now, whether they’re good or bad…

Oh, Khaleesi (Khali). Sometimes she’s a bit of an escape artist. We opened the door this morning to tell the chipmunks to STFU, and Khali ran right out. She does this from time to time, and always (so far) comes back, but it still makes me a bit nervous. (Also, Snow makes me BONKERS when she’s trying to come back, because he usually chases her off when she gets close to the house. What a dick.)

Edited to add: Khali returned home just before noon.

I had to provide my social security number to someone at work today and I asked if I could call to give it to them. They were like “sure, whatever makes you comfortable.” Ha. Maybe I am odd in that I didn’t want it in an email? I mean, email should be secure. Should

    A call was probably the smartest choice 🙂 I am leery of too much information in a email 🙂

  2. At my old job, I used to have to gather SSNs from a couple people every now and again. I’d always give the option of phone or email, and I don’t think anyone ever chose to email it to me. I don’t blame them! That’s not information I’d want to send over email, either! It seems way too insecure for something that sensitive.

    Yeah it’s terrible with visa stuff you literally have to email HR your passport, Ssn ….EVERYtHING! Then a few months later they ask for the same stuff again and it makes you wonder how careful they are with the information if they can’t find it in your file. Aw well let’s hope no one tries to steal our identities.

      Oh gosh. That reminds me of applying for a loan to buy our house when we had to send sensitive documents OVER and OVER and OVER. Major eyeroll!!!!!

    I like your pro-con card! Were you struggling with a particularly difficult decision recently?

    I recently talked to a friend who said that he couldn’t really remember the last time he asked someone for advice when making a decision. It really surprised me because I feel like I’m CONSTANTLY asking for advice or getting my friends’ and family’s input on decisions. Do you prefer to decide without a lot of input (except maybe Steven’s)?

    • kilax says:

      Yeah, I still am.

      I am the same way as your friend – I rarely ask for advice, at least, in my personal life. At work I ask for input on things I don’t know how to do!

    Oh geez I’d NEVER put a ssn in an email. I don’t think that was weird at all not to.
