    I was on one phone, and looking at the other to give my boss dude the info he was asking about, and near the end of the call reminded him of the form that was sent out. He was like, yeah, what of it? I told him I use my personal phone all the time. He was silent. I continued . . .

    Yeah, I'm using it right now. I often use both phones at the same time. How else could I give you the info you are asking about? I'm not some youngster that can do everything on one phone all at the same time. I didn't go on to tell him the company phone can barely make it through a day when I'm doing PM's, and it would cost him a lot of money for me to charge the work phone at the same time I'm trying to get stuff done on it.

    Gawd I hate HR people.
    HR's real job is protect the company from lawsuits.
    Alot of employees get it confused and think HR is your advocate for justice. "I'll report you to HR".
    That's what they claim they are for. But they aren't. Having it allows them to claim they have an HR department so they can claim they have a system in place.
    Which is why most HR people are ineffective people, or fail at doing what an employee thinks they are supposed to do.

    Ever wonder why most HR reps are women?
    It's because it's hard to prove sexual harassment being overlooked by HR if the rep is a woman.

    The reason would be that if you were accused of taking voyerist pictures on a job, they would have access to you phone.

    If your not supposed to have your personal, and you do, and refuse to hand it over, they can fire you, and Dodge a lawsuit, hopefully.


    I've never owned a personal cell phone, so hard for me to say about having 2.

    As far as rebrazing, gonna depend on how clean the joint is.

    Nice and clean, slap some filler on it, use similar filler material.

    Dirty, pull the joint.

    Simply heating it to move the filler around rarely works, at least for me.

    I have a decent HR woman at the company I work for. I was on the phone as they asked me about paperwork I didn’t send in...
    I said I cannot because you didn’t give it to me first....she responded “Well thats typical of what a guy would say!” Then there was a long pause before she burst out laughing! I could not help but also laugh as well....

    Just heat it up and pull it apart. Clean both sides well, use a bit of white flux and rebraze together.
