I guess I look at it as one less thing to have to do/worry about. In case of fire, tornado or other disaster I have a feeling that I would have a few other things on my mind other than replacing tickets......

I agree, I know my dog would be the only thing that would cross my mind immediately. Its hard to say what I would think if the situation presented itself for real.

We know what arw would do though!!

I forgot about the scariest line ever! The guy behind me was WAAAAAAAAAY to close (!!!) but at least he was kinda comfrotable to lean on.

I kind of wish they had a different shirt available online so you'd know who was really there and who wasn't, but I guess it doesn't really matter.

Sorry, I have a funny picture in my head of you running screaming from a burning building now.

I wonder if I could take 20 picture albums? I need an emergency escape plan for my pictures.

I'm so tired I've been so busy at work the last few days with doing my work plus taking time to help the newbie that by the time she leaves at 4:00 I can't think.

She leaves an hour early, too? She sounds like such an amazing helper.

My feet hurt and I'm dizzy. What's up with the dizzy? I had to hold on to the cashwrap for dear life a few times tonight. That's not cool.

On a positive note: putting every Mysterious Ways I have on my computer into iTunes was one of the best ideas I've ever had!

Oh did I forget to mention that she has special hours? Yep She works 7-4 instead of 8-5 like everyone else. The plus side is our sales reps are in TN so she's going to be there the same times they are since there is an hour time difference. The bad side is I'm stuck with anything and everything the last hour of the day. Oh and also no matter what she can't ever stay late. EVER. Other than the last day of the month Her husband works all sorts of weird hours but is in charge of getting the kids to daycare. One is around 4 and the other is an infant so they go to different daycares which means not only does she have to check in with 2 different daycares a few times a day but she calls her husband to update him. Oh and since her husband works all sorts of weird hours including having to go on business trips when she has to drop the kids off at daycare she doesn't get to work until 8:30, like today. But she still gets to take an hour lunch at 1:00 instead of noon and then she's back at 2:00 from lunch and leaves at 4:00. She doesn't have to make up the times at all because my boss thinks that the days she might have to skip lunch or the rare times she is able to stay late, on the last day of the month, it all evens out since we're salary. And....her husband is off the last week of the year so she thinks she's going to request a few days off to be with him and the kids. No one...NO ONE...gets the last few weeks of the year off. It's year end so everyone wants to close out any open deals so it's super busy and we don't even get to leave for lunch. They bring it to us. We don't get a holiday party until the summer because it's too busy! But she already asked before she accepted the job and was tentively told it was ok

Am I bothered by all of her special treatment? Not yet....but when she's all up to speed and I have to cover for her because of all of her needs then I'll be bothered

I know...the whole personal call thing is what bugs the crap out of me the most. I email everyone I know all day long but I can start and email and spend all day working on it in between WORK. Plus she still has to go through any calls she gets from her old dept and transfer. Instead of just transfering the call she'll call the person to say she has a transfer and then chat.

Today..... Our tax department is upstairs, on her old floor. I sent her up there to get a tax exemption certificate approved. She was gone 10 minutes. I go up all the time for that. It takes more time to walk to the steps than it does to for the tax person to approve the form. So I say to myself I bet she's over talking to her buddies.....later on in the day I send her up again but the second she left I thought I shouldn't have done that. FIFTEEN minutes later she returns. Both times I needed that form back asap to get the deal over to the next dept for processing. She has absolutley no sense of urgency in anything. She really did a lot today, because I made her. Things that took her hours to do on Friday and yesterday took a few minutes today because I made her sit with me and do them. She's in for a rude awakening next month end when she actually has her own deals and has 20 different people coming at her all at once. My old supervisor, who I tell everything, can't wait either
