Normally I love my job, but yesterday made me just want to SCREAM!!!
My boss had this huge meeting that only happens every 5 years to prep for so, of course that means that he waits till the last minute to prep, enlists my assistance, then has me come in all weekend to work on it promising me he will come in to work on it as well and doesn't. Come Monday everything is last minute to the wire craziness.
Usually I have one co-worker who would totally be on top of all this way before it was an issue since it is pretty much her job as well to prep for things like this, however, she has emergency surgery and was in no condition to do much of anything. Thankfully she is recovering nicely and will be back in the office soon. We all miss her! She is kind of the office mom.
Another co-worker had her last day yesterday so she really didn't care much, but she did care enough to ask a few times if she could help in any way which was nice. Sadly, when she asked I didn't have much for her to do and when she wasn't there I was crazed and wishing she was.
And finally my other co-worker, just kept breezing in and out working on total nonsense! She kept interrupting me and telling me what a lovely day she was having doing this, that, or the other thing which really set my blood boiling since she could have totally filled in for the co-worker out due to surgery and helped me not stress so much and get everything done BEFORE the actual meeting began!!
ARGH!!! I seriously cannot wait to get north for my cousin's wedding. I really need some time away from the office. There is only one person I work with who is not making me completely crazy and thankfully he and I get to work together today. It will be pretty physical as well so that will help drain some stress. Lots of going up and down the stairs to the attic to prep for an educational program we have on Friday involving over 600 school children. Between the banter he and I usually get up to and the physical work I have a feeling the stress will melt away....until then...Grrrr....just grrrr...
