In response to a confession. You have posted multiple times about this CW, but you keep enabling the situation by helping her or doing for her. She is just playing you. Stop letting her get away with this. If she can't do the job, and you stop doing it for her, maybe they will fire her, or she will get frustrated and leave.

Holy shit. Elderly CW is at the copier and cannot reduce legal to letter size. My God. She's been at this office longer than I have. She's been working in offices longer than I've been alive. And I just had to explain to her what a document feeder is. On a copier. Mother of pearl. *headdesk*

I got named Committee Vice Chair of an important committee. Was reluctant to tell my husband. If I wanted to take yoga that would be fine, but this kind of thing doesn't go over well.

In my job I deal with legal contracts. My hours are 9-5, but I am to be available off hours if an emergent doc needs to be prepared. A few months ago, a CW texted me ALL weekend - to prepare a doc, send it out for signature, see if it was back, send it to the other party, etc. A) It wasn't an emergent situation, and B) In this case, it was HER responsibility. When I stopped answering, which was because I had important things to do around the house, she pitched a fit about how I could have jeopardized the deal. (Not.) Well last weekend there WAS an emergent situation that COULD have jeopardized a deal. I didn't know about it bc boss told everyone not to bother me on wknds, She got the doc on Sat but didn't send it out until Mon. Other party is PISSED. She's like, "Eh, I sent it out next business day, NBD." Hate hypocrites!!!

I am really loving my new position. I have my own office (with a window!) and I get to go to New Orleans for a food technology conference next year! Also, I found out I am eligible for a bonus in January--a $10K bonus. I want to pinch myself because I really feel like it's too good to be true. Also, we have a company wide no-swearing policy (it's not like, strictly enforced, but people who swear constantly get written up). I thought about the OP who hated her job because of the lady who swears. I didn't think it would make that much of a difference, but it really does. It's amazing how much nicer it feels to work with people with a good attitude.

Tomorrow will be a 13 hour day, off-site at staff retreat then directly to another training. First day of my period. And I'm not ready for this training at all with presentation and on-skills road drills, etc! I work for an organization that promotes this event, so I worry people will think I'm some expert when I'm still a novice. Trying to think positive thoughts, but I am really freaking out in the inside.

This was a rough day. I did not feel effective. Systems are not working. We are under staffed and under resourced. There is no time to plan for success. I honestly feel that we are not hiring qualified people because we do not pay enough. I sometimes wonder what level I could perform at under different conditions. I am discouraged right now. I am generally courageous, but not at the moment.

I'm dealing with a work situation where the guy put his son in charge of his business and the son is doing a shit job and now Dad wants details. So I had to basically throw the son right under the bus. He's not keeping good records, he's not getting info to me in a timely manner, resulting in late tax filings, then he's not paying the tax.. late fees, penalties, interest... (and that's just what I know about. Who knows whether he's paying vendors and suppliers.) But yet the son gets another chance and is still running things- under dad's close scrutiny. And I still have to work with him after throwing him under the bus. *smh* I didn't say anything that wasn't true and I didn't offer opinions, but this is still super awkward.
