I'm glad I'm not working anymore. I've been incandescent with blind and barbaric fury at work more than a couple of times ( I have a low tolerance for stupidity) though you wouldn't know it from my facial expression.  Not that it would mattrer anyway, I'm not foolish enough to hit the "I'm sad" button unless I have a offer in hand from another employer.

People are not going to self report honestly lest management see them as a crank.

Why aren't they using decades-old, proven mood ring technology?

More hippie dippy bulshiat to make the proles "feel valued."

If I am at my crappy job then I am not happy. That simple. Because when I am there, I am subject to at least 1 customer complaining about the price, 1 screw-up by the gremlin who fancies herself better than me, and a daily "discussion" about politics with my boss who spouts things like what happened at the Capitol isn't really bad compared to what "AnTiFa" did by taking over Seattle and the "good honest freeze peach protestors in DC" were let in by the police so no crime was committed.

There aren't enough layers of guarantees of "none of this will ever negatively affect you, professionally" to convince me to trust a system like this.

Can't employees just clap their hands or stomp their feet if they're happy and they know it?

If you were meant to be happy it wouldn't be called work

If I hit the sad button enough to get carpal tunnel syndrome, will I get workman's comp?
 
2021-01-24 11:10:01 AM  
The beatings will continue until morale improves.

My boss doesn't need a bracelet to know if I'm happy or not
Two minutes into our morning meeting he knows
Usually not happy

foo monkey: If I hit the sad button enough to get carpal tunnel syndrome, will I get workman's comp?


Nah.

Sad button won't do anything.
Happy button will increment once an hour no matter what you do.

Manager bonuses will be based on the happiness of their work group.

I can see it now.

Big Boss:  HR, can we fire anybody who hits the blue button?
HR: Of course we can - Right to work state.
Big Boss: OK, fire anybody who hits the blue button
HR: Brilliant plan Big Boss, once we fire all those unhappy workers, we'll have a 100% happy work force. They write you up in the management books!

Pay your employees more money. They still won't be happy, but they'll be happier than getting a wristband that forces them to lie

They'll do almost anything to avoid giving people a f**kin' raise.

Imagine being a low level manager in such a company. Every time the Worker Happiness Metric drops below 98%
you'll need to produce an Action Plan to address the issue.

I believe it was Drew Carey who famously said, "You don't like your job? There's a group for that. It's called EVERYBODY, and we meet at the bar at 5:00."

I'll break your arm you say "Third base!"

we have detected that you have fallen below the approved happiness threshold.  please separate yourself from any nearby happy employees.  an agent has been dispatched to handle the situation.

Is there an option for a third button to indicate that you feel nothing?

I use the word "fark" like a comma at work.

Time to retire.

You can say no, but if you say no, don't bother trying to transition from temp to permanent.  Don't bother applying for a promotion. Don't be surprised if you get the first pink slip when lay offs happen.

Do tech geeks have absolutely nothing to do besides make life more hellish for the rest of us?
Why can't they do something useful with their lives like get a job in a fast food place flipping burgers?

About 95% of the best-paying tech jobs are about spying on people, and/or ruining their lives.

So yeah, that's what the tech geeks do.

Why just happy/sad?

Give it 4 buttons and include angry and stressed? bored? idk...

Horny. You know, when that cute coworker walks by your desk and drops her pen in just the right spot for you to get a full view when she has to bend over to pick it up and ...
