work strife


I'm getting more responsibility at work. Whee.

The admin for one of the positions my boss oversees is leaving, like, today, and they just figured out that I'm going to have to do some stuff until they find a replacement. Read that again - she's leaving today. They just figured this out. And there's very little time today to go over this stuff, including stuff I've never done before and have no idea how to do.

Yeah. Whee.

I do believe this is the fourth or fifth time I've been asked to temporarily take on extra duties. At least I got a bonus out of it last year. A raise would be nicer.

(See, I don't really have any useful advice, so I figured I could at least provide an amusing distraction.)

You and the nekkid and the running!

And the nekkid-while-running, even! See, once I left the board, I found that there were substantially fewer opportunities for nekkid running, and it's not like we get all that many lj newbies in the sdmb community, so ... basically I have to take opportunities as I see them.

You may run nekkid through my LJ any time you like, dear. I'm sure Quincy will be amused. :P

Yup. And I had to go get food, and by the time I left my boss had left, so now I get to do it solo. Within the next hour or so. And they have a meeting scheduled.

I hate being flexible.

But Q likes you to be flexible! He loves it when you get into that one position and you put your legs around his midsection and then disloacte your pelvis so you can slide up and ..........

Oh, and did I mention they're all off at lunch, plus my boss needs to leave early, so there's a high probability this won't get done today? :)

It's the UC. Nobody really knows who does what until they leave and it stops getting done.

We've got that problem a bit less; with the PeopleSoft implementation that CSU has been doing over the last few years there's been a drive to do a bit of analysis on what people actually do.

My mother worked in the sales office of a hotel for 10 years, and because of their crappy policies, she quit and was gone the next day. She still had lots of other co-worker friends, and goodness if they didn't feed her all the gossip - like the temp they hired quitting after 2 days, work grinding to a halt within the week, people flailing and completely lost. It was like watching your own funeral and everyone's falling apart over you. :)
