The first day back at the office after three days off is always the worst, and today was certainly no exception. They expect me to be up to speed with everybody else and everything that is going on. What they forget is that I was not there on Monday and Tuesday, and haven’t a clue. What I am beginning to realize is that I don’t really care.
The big management meeting is every Wednesday afternoon at 3:00. Everybody is supposed to have all their reports ready to present. I arrive at the office about noon on Wednesday, after having been off Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Everybody else has had two and a half days already to prepare for the meeting. I have three hours. You would think they would cut me a little slack, wouldn’t you? You would think wrong. I am expected to accomplish in three hours what everybody else has had two and a half days to accomplish.
Something ain’t right.
Okay, I’ll quit whining now. Thanks for listening, and letting me cry on your shoulder for a bit. It really helped. So, um, what do you think of the new colors?
