my most hated phrase atm - quality framework.

fuck off.

had the good people from our state worksafe authority come through and do a 2 hour audit of my site.
my corner of the office is aaprently the darkest in the whole building and the ceiling fan makes a flicker worse than a fluro tube which may have caused my mental SNAP .

my boss comes back from holidays friday and i have done NONE of the work he assigned me.

i earn less than one of our bus drivers and i am the supervisor WTF.



i need to go power juice pretty quickly i think.

At work we used to have store manager meetings every month. But after our "Store Organization Restructuring" we now have Store Leadership Sessions every month. It's amazing how much more gets accomplished now that we've changed the name of it. And since I am no longer called a manager but a Team Leader, I finally feel truly qualified to lead my team. I'd always felt I was merely managing my team before, but now? Now... hoh boy, lookout. Ima gonna lead em.

It's as if a veil has been lifted. Life makes sense for the first time.

My assistant and I are speaking to each other with British accents. Just us two. But, I'm pushing HR to have a British accent day in June.

E-mail was down for not one but TWO days this week. TWO DAYS. How am I to get any work done when I can't e-mail people to tell them I'm not going to their meeting? Any work done?

We once had no phones for 3 and a half days.

Oh my god. This reminds me of about 4 years ago, when I was the receptionist at my company. Our voicemail system died, and there was no voicemail for A MONTH! I had to take messages for an office of 100 very busy people, and deal with people screaming at me because they couldn't leave a private voicemail message for someone. The first day or two was the worst. I drank myself into a stupor every night. Horrible, horrible. I eventually told people to stop calling and send an email, which they thankfully did, and things became less hectic. I couldn't get any of my own work done for that month.

The system was so antiquated that it took them forever to figure it out and eventually buy something new. Meanwhile I was constantly stressed and hungover.

So glad those days are over now!
