In my mind's eye, I should have been through with all my current office bullshit and should be dealing with another office's bullshit by now. After all these years I am still smacking around the same people, listening to the same grumbles and have the same few brown nosers kissing my ass.
I know this is turning into a work blog and that wasn't my intention. Like Seinfield reruns, this blog is supposed to be about nothing. However, I do need to vent and what better a place than at the kewl kid's table with a captive audience?
Ms. BB has been back one week and I noticed I wasn't getting the amount of output from the gal I hired to take over her job. When I inquired, it appeared that Ms. BB decided that since SHE wasn't able to work that hard having someone else do it made her look bad. So she divided the work among three people.
Yes, it is true. The woman that I have gone through so much trouble to keep due to her work ethic was instructed to slow down so others have more work. Of course when I asked Ms. BB what she was thinking I got the same deer in the headlights look that I have been receiving since 1998. She doesn't even attempt to make excuses but looks at me with a stupid expression that says.."snagged"...and she waits for me to tell her what she already knows. What actually should be happening.
In the meantime, I laid in bed last night trying to come up with a solution to Ms. BB and her intense odor problem. (Instead of being laid in bed which would have been a lot more fun.) I think I managed to work it out that she would have an office to herself which is really quite annoying. Forget to bathe and you get your own private office. I wonder if I'd have to make her a VP if she stops wearing her dentures?
She did tell me this happy news this morning.
"Chris, I am here to stay. I am not going to be able to retire until I am dead."
Don't tempt me.
