Thoughts on Fridays


TGIF

Today, my team is going to be in an all-day staff meeting from 9-3. Holy crap.

That means 6 hours of not being able to get the rest of the work piling up on my desk done. And it's not that the pile of work there is necessarily stuff I've been neglecting. It's stuff that's always someone else's emergency and because my boss is customer-service oriented, she wants her team to be responsive. Even though she is chronically late in responding to stuff herself.

So this meeting will be characteristically full of strategizing for additional projects we'll be assigned to work on. I already manage three of the office's initiatives, in addition to being the SME for things I was promoted out of six months ago and still have to deal with because the other team members aren't up to steam with yet.

Noone has to paint a picture of what's wrong in my work world, lol. Even so, I'm glad to be employed. Lots aren't.

I'm old enough that I could 'retire.' I wouldn't be rolling in dough if I do, but I could manage. When I do start singing the 'take this job and shove it' song, I'll be finally able to do some things for myself I've been putting off.

Oh, and thank God for Monday ... paid holiday

Have a great one, peeps ... whatever you are doing today!

First snow day in lower mid-Michigan!

I read that, and realized once again, how happy I am to be out of the corporate world.

Hope the day goes well, despite the marathon meeting.

Hey Granny. Was director of IT and when it was time for me to go, I opned the door as soon as I could and retired. Got away from all the BS and now my life is doing well. Enjoy what left, time goes by much faster at this level.

Awww, geez, your boss sounds a lot like the ones I've had...do as I say, not as I do.

Everything in those environments is now, right effin NOW, but not while I've scheduled this long ass, unproductive meeting (so I can feel important), but still get your work done...NOW! But hey, I'll provide a cheap ass boxed lunch, or pizza to make up for it...and, we'll eat while we 'work'.

Have fun!

    Quoting Platosgames:

Amen.. Nothing better than working for yourself where you are your own boss..

One can never have enough JOY in their life...
