I love work. I really do.

...1 1/2 weeks ago...
Me: I found this email in Stacey's inbox. Let me panic now as I do these two reports even though I have no idea what I'm doing and where to get the information done.
Rod: Don't do those reports. We're not a project. Aaron says we should be doing some other report. I have a meeting with Pam next week about this.
Me: Okay. Let me know the outcome.

Cherie: Send your reports to Lauren.
Me: *give explanation of why I haven't done them*
Lauren: Okay!
Lauren a few minutes later: Uh, nevermind? Even though you're not a project, you still have stuff going to the SDC. I'm sending out an email and will BCC you on it. And keep you in the loop.
Me: *face plant*


The most recent examples of managers not knowing what they're doing, of communication going haywire, and me being annoyed because it most likely means I'll be crunching pretty hard core to get this out since it was due last Friday and I could have done it 1 1/2 weeks ago and instead, I was told not to. Yes. I love work.


...Today (Wednesday)...
Me: Okay.... this isn't us... this isn't us... this isn't us...
Rod: Just do this.
Me: Okay...
Pam: I don't know about this. Let's try this.
Me: I'm gonna ask questions.
Lauren: No one will know if something's missing. But hey, you don't have to fill out THAT report. Fill out THIS one instead!
Me: *faceplant*


  1. How come you have a blog and didn't tell me?!!!!!

  2. I don't know? Maybe because I didn't know if I would keep it or not.
