I do love how relaxed my job can be at times like when my coworker and Executive Director and I took an exercise and stretch breaks together midday. Also, a few of us worked in the conference room for several hours laughing endlessly while getting surprisingly a ton of work done. I was all days were like today.

In response to a confession. Reminds me of the time I was a paralegal and the boss's aunt (who swore she could work circles around the rest of us) asked me to 'refresh her memory' about how to cut and paste. I showed her, step-by-step, and she shook her head like she understood every word. Two hours later I saw the finished product. She retyped the three-page document the way it was supposed to be, printed both documents, and used scissors to cut out the new document and taped them to the old. I still LOL about that one!

So it turns out she did NOT grasp the concept of copying and pasting so she just re-keyed the entire fucking document in the format it was supposed to be in. Oh, do I wish I was kidding. And it was in the wrong format in the first place because she doesn't understand how rows and columns work. Yay! *headdesk*

I've been feeling burned out with work. I can't seem to pull myself to get this report done. It's due by next week, but I'm struggling terribly. I have my vacation next week, but need to get this in before.

And today I had to teach somebody who's been working in offices longer than I've been ALIVE....(and I'm no spring chicken) how to fucking copy and paste. *headdesk* Oh, and she's gonna fuck it up. No question, I'm gonna have to teach her again. And again.

Congrats, self! Managed to make an ass out of yourself and fuck up your morning before 9am! No small feat when you spent an hour before coming here trying to get your head and body right with some zen-ass yoga. Way to make it happen! Kudos!

I am looking for another job, and when the first thing I notice when I walk into a place for an interview is how loud the music is, I do not want to work there.

Well, I found out I didn't get a bonus at work this year. Apparently you have to have been there a year to qualify for it, but I will get it next year. My CWs are using theirs to buy cars, put down payments on houses, etc. I'm donating mine to charity. All $10K of it. I just have to decide where it will do the most good. I know I'm extremely lucky to get that bonus but not everyone's that fortunate in life, so I'm going to help them out. I'll probably donate it to St. Jude's and the humane society and my aunt's child abuse prevention charity. Oh, and I'll help my dad out with buying a new car. It seems greedy to keep all that for myself.

We have a lot of different websites we have to use at work, and I'm always having problems with them. I'll change the status on a file, and the next day boss sends me an email asking me to change the status. I'm like, I did...and I look and it's not changed. I'll send X file to Y person from a site, and then find out it didn't send. I'll be going through my emails from the bottom up, and suddenly two or three unread emails pop up beneath ones I've already read. Sometimes I'll get an email, switch to another tab to check one of the other sites I need to look up the info, go back to that email and - that email has completely disappeared and the screen is back on my inbox. Then I look in every folder including trash, and I can. not. find. that. email. The worst part about it is that I honestly don't think my boss believes me, because he says he doesn't have any of these issues. :(

In response to a confession. I've been telling dh for almost 10 years that I don't like certain foods, and he's always surprised when he makes those things for dinner and I balk. Six years ago he got me the absolute best cake for my birthday. It was a simple small, graduated layer cake with buttercream from the grocery store, but he bought fresh berries to put on and around it. Every single year I've been asking for that cake again and every single year he gets me something else. Last year he was so proud of himself when he unveiled my cake. It was literally the ONE cake I've mentioned over and over that I absolutely despise. I felt kinda bad but come on man!!! Listen!!!
