The Same Day Request...

Thursday, May 12, 2005

Here's a god gripe, I'm sure just about any cube-dweller can relate to. You're going through doing your work like usual, trying to fill a few requests that have been assigned to you. Next thing you know you get a phone call. The person on the other end says you need to drop everything and do this hot new request. This request is one that you know will take about 4-5 hours to do and that's only because you're an Ace at what you do. It's 2:00. You Leave at 4:30. Instead of being kind, and requesting a due date of tomorrow, they put today as the deadline. Bastards! I have a condo to move to and finish working on. I am seeking a life outside of work on top of that. I know I've got things done in a hurry for them before, but don't start EXPECTING miracles. It's like the manager who says "You're right, that one is perfect. But, try harder next time." And to top it off, the license server for the software I need to use is down, so I can't even get started on it anyway. BLAH!

Gee, lucky you. Well I hope you get that task done and still get to have a life outside of work. And I'll be thinking up some interview questions for you :)

Right now my only life outside of work is getting my condo livable. But I'll keep working on it!
