I just realized I haven’t posted anything since Christmas Eve; I guess I just didn’t have anything to say. If we HAD been planning to have coffee over this past weekend, I probably would have just not answered the door and let you wander away, un-caffeinated.
It has been a horrible week at work and it’s only Tuesday. It’s not that I have so much actual WORK to do, in fact I have just the RIGHT amount of work to do – enough to keep me busy and challenged, but not enough to make me weep.
So what’s putting me underwater? Well, let’s see. Within a ONE HOUR period, I got all of these:
Can you send the PDF of CID in portrait mode
Me: Sure, let me drop everything and whip one of those up for you.
The code and description tables are manual tables?
Me: Yep, as I had explained to you when we created them. And which you said, “oh, ok” to, in the email which I have RIGHT HERE.
Weight limit was 1,000,000,000. Is it legit value ? or someone just typed in ?
Me: Whadda YOU think? You think we have trucks that can hold ONE BILLION POUNDS?
I have updated attached mapping document with following highlighted missing columns and rules, please let me know if anything needs to be changed.
Me: Mapping is YOUR JOB! But sure, let me drop everything and go over YOUR work with a magnifying glass since you don’t know how to do it properly in the first place. And be sure to ask ME to do it, not someone on your own team because then they might find out how LITTLE YOU DO AROUND HERE!!!!
<deep cleansing breaths>
Ok, I’m sorry. I’m all better now. And now, let’s find something GOOD to say, to balance the karma of the universe. …
OH – I know. The new person on our team is working out VERY well. She’s picking things up after being told only ONCE, she’s volunteering for things, she gets my JOKES – I can’t WAIT to dump a couple of my nightmare projects on her. YAY!!!!
I promise to try to post something FUN to read before the weekend comes. Honestly. How about a story from the childhood vault? In Which Uncle Shorty Throws the Cards in the Fire. (oops, too late for a spoiler alert on that one); How about In Which I Hike Around The Island With a Sandwich and a Book. Hmm, not much story left now. I’ll work on it.
