Got home Tuesday night, came to work yesterday, back at work today. I got a double workload. I am busy all the time. I have a long list of things to do, but my boss always wants me to stop what I’m doing and do something else she comes up with, which means I never get anything done. For example, Working on one problem, I’m walking to get a tool from my toolbox , on the way, I get stopped for some other emergency. Before I get the new emergency resolved, an even more important something needs to be done, ad infinitum. Then later I go past the first thing I was doing, and say “OH yeah!”, and then go back to get the tool I set out to get in the beginning, on the way, I get stopped for and emergency. . . . Lately I’ve been trying to set my own priorities, and and put my foot down. I come across as kind of mean or angry, – “I’ll do it when I get done with THIS!”
I understand how things work better than I understand how people work.
Oh yeah, because my contract got renewed, and SOMEONE didn’t turn in the paperwork, I didn’t get paid yesterday (direct deposit). So I had to wait for a check, which I got so late that I didn’t have time to go to the bank.. So this morning I’m going to the bank, work be damned! Actually two banks, first I have to cash the check, then deposit it at my bank, or else it takes three days to clear. I’ll be gone most of the morning.
