This is where I’ve been

Want to know where I’ve been all this time? Working. Why does my job suck so badly?

Look at these emails. Read from the bottom up. Stoplight production management.

After all that, you want me to mail on Friday? 2 words, lady.
Fuck.
You.

Is it possible to verify the headcount — that is all the client wants right now? Please advise. They just want to make certain there are no gaps. Thank you.

NoGood,

I know it’s insanity, but please hold off again for just an hour or so…be back once the client gives clearance. THANK YOU and I regret this inconvenience,.

Thanks Joan. I sent word out. Any idea on how long the delay may be?

Please hold off on printing and distribution. The client wants to review the audits now too where before they just had their eligibility folks review. Thanks. I’ll keep you posted.

For fun, next week, I’m back in PA where I will get to do battle with my coworkers to force another job into production.

It will go like this:

Me: We need to run this test job and put it on the inserters.
Them: No
Me: Yes…we need to run it because I need to wrap up my stupid project. We need to get paid for this
Them: No. We don’t care and we’re too busy.
Me: Run it!
Them: No.
Me: Run it, especially because in 2009, I’m sending you all more work than you can handle
Them: No.

Then I drink.

I hate my jobs.

  1. I used to have a job like that and I eventually curled up in ball and had to drink in excess. I worked for a printing co and nothing could go on schedule. No one would cooperate.
