Tales of a Working Girl

How on Earth can you do our billing every month for a year and a half and not know our most BASIC cost codes?!

Haven’t forgotten all 3 of you, just the BS here is less easily explained these days.

I know that feeling.

Some days I wonder how some of them even get dressed in the morning.

Why didn’t we just buy (2) 20’ lengths? We have the capability to cut it in half.

If you are going to sit at my desk and operate my email for forward a few messages to yourself, the least you can do is leave my desk the way you found it (logged off and items placed a certain way).

The view from the corner of my desk. The horrors I hear and smell are beyond your worst nightmares.

I love it when

the non-computer user is arguing with me about what email I got today.

Him: Does this cover sheet go with this email you got today?

Me: I didn’t get that email today so I don’t know. It is dated 3 days ago, but I still don’t think I got that.

Him: Well, is it there waiting for you to get it?

Me: (Checking even though I check it constantly and KNOW the email came 3 days ago) Nope, it is empty.  Did you check with [his assistant]? She may have gotten it.

H: So you didn’t get it maybe yesterday? When did she download this?

M: (wishing I could scream “HOW SHOULD I KNOW??” Calmly instead…) I really don’t know, I think [assistant] handled this. You should check with her.

Admin Professional’s Day

Most offices take out their admins to lunch, give them flowers or cards. I get a grumpy owner who gives my work to someone else to do (and does an awful job of it) and grouches at me because I don’t have the info he needs because he never gave it to me.

Time to get a resume ready

So sick of the BS here sometimes. We hire 1 guy and now the people who have been here for over a decade know less than then he who has yet to finish a quarter.
