Does anyone have recommendations for a medical alert system (aka: I’ve fallen and I can’t get up)? We’re considering it for my parents in Fla.

Friday (HR): You should speak to this staff person and ask why he hasn't applied for the supervisor position. It'll be great for you to promote from within.
Friday afternoon (me): I think you should consider applying for the position.
Monday morning (to my senior VP): I'm considering promoting X if he's interested.
SVP: That's great. Whatever you want to do, we trust your judgement. We believe in advancing our people as a company. It's a good message to send.
Monday morning (person): Please consider me for the position
Tuesday morning (HR): For reasons my boss won't disclose, we do not feel it's appropriate to promote this person.
Me: I need to speak with MY bosses to see if they can shed any light.
HR: No need to involve them at this point. Let's see what happens with my boss.
In conclusion: FUCK YOU, HR. Now you've created a mess, you clean it up.

The Boy and The Mister got stung a couple of times, but they’re fine.
