Abandoned

The dude took off to a conference in Chicago with the computer which means I will have to blog from work where I am ass-deep in it. My senior and junior colleagues are now long gone, making poor-you faces at me from their new desks and laughing their asses off. The good news is the evil AVP is off on a ten day holiday. The bad news is she has increased my responsibilities to 60 hours a week and refuses to discuss salary with me. The good news is I fully intend to go over her head while she is gone. In fact tomorrow. Hey, I gave her chances. And also, I have only been doing my regular jobs rather than work 60 hours a week. I think that's reasonable. Anyway, now you know why the posting has been erratic. Some days it's all I can do to sit upright at my desk and avoid weeping openly.

So anyway, no pictures til the dude returns*. Just boring old blather and whine, whine, whine from me.

*Too bad for Edgar because I've been working on his round robin. (DD, yours is next, promise!)

I suspect your PITA boss took off for 10 days to come to the Netherlands and infiltrate Niek's workplace ...

Hey, I'm not worried about the RR, I'm just glad you are able to stitch. I haven't asked about your hand in a few days but seems to be doing well.

Enjoy your days alone in your house and blow off the other #$%$@#$@#!

What a lovely wench your boss is. Going over her head sounds excellent.

Good luck, I am sure you will 'come right' as they say in SA!

Where the hell do you work? Sounds a little annoying.

Oh, poor you! You want I should come take care of her for you? (You need to say that last bit in your best Paulie Walnuts voice.) Chin up, friend, and give her what for tomorrow. Life's too short to have to endure such crap at work.
