It was super cold but one of the days they built a fire and we ate, drank and played board games.
We have been invited to come back in the winter and go snowmobiling (which sounds fun but scary).

The CEO's secretary here is worse than a man. Fill the shredder....don't empty it. Empty tp roll...don't change it. Use last paper towel...don't get a new roll out.

It drives me INSANE!! :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x :x

I was just coming to ask the same thing!


I've been on a conference call for the past hour trying to explain things that I've already explained multiple times to each person involved who are all acting as if this is new information. Which makes me feel like I have utterly wasted my time and boy does that make me ugly.

GRR!

Do you wish now I'd just stayed away? ;)

Nope, not at all!!

Manager now thinks we should personally call each person with a past due balance, AFTER making an automated call to them.


Um. NO.

Hee! I used to work in a call center. The dumbest, most customer-infuriating ideas ALWAYS came from the people who didn't work the phones.

Yup, they just don't get it. And thanks to his lame brain ideas my work load has increased SO MUCH. I can barely leave my desk anymore. He's a total micromanager and always has his tiny little fingers in all my work.

Give him a list of people to call since he thinks it's so important.

OH GOD.

I've just been informed that we're having another conference call to further discuss the things we were discussing earlier today. I wonder if they'll pretend I never told them ALL THE THINGS THEY NEEDED TO KNOW FOUR MONTHS AGO AGAIN.

IT'S MY GO HOME DAY!!!

I am ready to get the eff out of here. Yesterday we were in meetings from 7:30 - 5:00 and it was brutal. Baseball game last night, and I could hardly be bothered to proffer any fucks whatsoever as I loathe baseball. :| Just three hours of meetings this morning and then it's off to the airport. Wheee!!!

Jodie - hope your day is conference call-free! Lori - I don't blame you for considering that guy a fucknut for his lame-o suggestion of calling people. ugh.

Missed you guys!

Morning conversation with coworker:

Him: I can't believe how much it's costing me to take the family on vacation for a week to NC!!!

Me: I'd think you'd be thankful you CAN go on vacation...

Him: *turns and walks away*

Fingers crossed!

But today is the first day running new software, so everyone is all panicky and all the drivers are going to be super grumpy when they get back in. Meep!

Travel safely! Baseball is only fun when there is someone there to entertain you. :?
