Week 1

There is the old saying, “No news is good news.” I call bullshite on that. There has not been one word about my helpdesk tickets regarding my access, I’ve called multiple times everyday for the last week and I’m still not getting anywhere. Oh well I will suffer to persevere.

I discovered early today that my predecessor must have decided that she really retired back in February. Half of the employee information I need is either missing or only half filled out. Nothing has been updated since about the first week of February. I was at work from 6:30 am to 6:00 PM trying to find, replace or recover this missing info. This is information I have to have by the end of next week. If I don’t have it, my employees may suffer from poor reviews and loss of wages.

And in case you where wondering why I left work so early when this information was so sorely needed, please read the below post. Clones birthday party started at 6:00. I was late as it was. Since he is only turning three, I don’t think I traumatized him too much. To be honest he was too busy playing with his brother to even notice I wasn’t there. Once I arrived all he wanted to do was open presents. Yea, I’m a bad dad.

I have to work tomorrow. I don’t know how long I’m going to be there. My entire weekend might be shot. That’s the price one pays for the position I guess. Just in case you are still wondering, yes I still love the job.

Ugh. I hate cleaning up after other people.

Hope you get a couple of cold ones when you get home tomorrow night!

"If I don’t have it, my employees may suffer from poor reviews and loss of wages."

Right there....THAT statement is what is going to make you one hell of a bossman.

And you ain't a bad dad. Now, screw up on his 4th birthday and I may have to reconsider. ;-)

You showed up for his birthday. That was a good thing. And your employees will be happy that you are cleaning up.

Sorry it has been so trying. And it is wonderful that you made it for his birthday, in the end, that is what really counts!
