really? REALLY?

Recommended Posts

So my boss just sauntered by on the way to the printer.  Picked up the paper, brought it to me. 

It was a print of an email he sent me late yesterday.  "I emailed this to you".  That I replied to early this morning.  I had to give him the answers again before he would go back to his desk to read my email (and probably print it)

Really.

Along with about 7 others, I have to report my numbers to the powers that be (TPTB) every month. Every month I (and the 7) get a tickler from TPTB stating that the numbers are due on such and such date. Every month I reply to that tickler with my hours. Every month I get a group tickler after the due date requesting our numbers, then I get a personal tickler. Every month I forward the original tickler containing my numbers & get an "Oh, my bad" in response.

Today. I got the requisite overdue tickler from TPTB & as an added bonus, a note from some VP that this needs to be done ASAP.

Dip sheots.

Oh, he's a great guy.  Just a bit scatterbrained and has no aptitude for email.  Computers in general, actually.  And he's not that old.  And has an EE

...when you mentioned all that stuff about tickle dates, a cold chill ran down my spine.:( I had a nightmare this morning, just before I woke. I was back working a desk for the Social Security Admin.  I skipped breakfast, because my stomach was all knotted up. Good times.:frantics:

I’d be very, very careful who you talk to about that, because the person who wrote that... is dangerous. And this button-down, Oxford-cloth psycho might just snap, and then stalk from office to office with an Armalite AR-10 carbine has-powered semi-automatic weapon, pumping round after round into colleagues and co-workers. This might be someone you’ve known for years. Someone very, very close to you. Or maybe you shouldn’t bring me every little piece of trash you happen to pick up.
