Office Happenings That Make You Go Hmmmmm...
The boss who usually either ignores you or is a raging bee-y---- towards you is being really nice to you.
You are asked to fill out a talent evaluation form on yourself for the Sr. VP-guess he has no idea why the h--- you were hired either.
You are asked to list everything you are currently working on or have finished for your manager-your suspicians are confirmed-she really has no idea what you do or have done. And, she's still as incompetent as yesterday.
You can hardly go to the restroom without avoiding the judgemental eye of withering scorn from your superiors for your apparently weak bladder (after holding it for 3 hours I might add) but they can break the news that they are going to be unavailable for the next 40 hours 1/2 hour before they leave.
However, you encourage these same yay-hoos to go to as many conferences, conventions, vacations, school plays and funerals as possible because the fact they are not in your face all day is like having a vacation. Considering the paltry vacation hours you are allowed, that's probably all you are going to get anyway! Hey, this ain't Germany!
The Director gets your team's name wrong in the agenda for a Department meeting-AGAIN!-you feel like telling her just write "Screwed" in there, sweetie, thanks, luv ya!
Your entire area can't seem to keep office supplies and equipment on-hand, nor get quick re-stocks when needed. Consequently, there is a black market location near the Security Guard's desk for those that need to be hooked up with their fix of hanging files, pens, pencils, erasers, hard drives, phones that actually work, a desk chair..has anyone seen my car?....
Corporate IT has gone into hiding at a never disclosed location. Actually, no one is sure that we really have a Corporate IT Department.
How was your day?
(For the record: this IS a Cranky Cathy post!!!!)
