Ravings and Rantings

Welcome to my cloud! It's got a nice silver lining somewhere.....Some ranting, some raving--mostly positive stuff,lots of jokes (I can't stay serious). Nothing going on here that a pina colada or mohito can't fix.

Tuesday, Tuesday

NBG (M's boss) insisted on us calling a meeting of experts today. We knew it was too fast but he insisted. Out of maybe 8 people three showed up. NBG was sick today and participated by phone. The most senior of the 8 people (a true Big Shot and a very nice one) said that he was not comfy with the low participation and that we should reschedule (Bridg mouths "thank you" at him). The most important person is in Europe for this whole week. NBG says fine, we'll reschedule for the end of the week (are you listening, man?). End of Shortest Meeting On Record. Bridg is ready to bop NBG, even if he is at home sick.

Meanwhile, M dumped a job that's been pending since December on Bridg, a job she hates and was a factor in her not wanting M's boss-ship. It was due on April 14. She has no idea how to do it, the folks who used to do it have left our organization for good and M is off for two weeks. Is Bridg happy? Not exactly, to quote Hertz.

She winds up talking to M's and her old boss. He tells her that layoffs are likely coming and is Bridg coming back to work for him and Mr. B. Bridg says that is has nothing to do with her old boss (G man) but she'll retire or clean toilets before she does that. And that NBG is on the record as commiting to hire her anyway. (Gynormous hint, it has to do with G man's boss, Mr. B (pond scum, remember?)

Bridg is a tad sad tonight. She doesn't like cleaning toilets.

Night world....

    If no one is left around that knows how to do the task that no one wants to do perhaps you can get creative and noone will have any idea...of course successful completion will mean that Bridg gets stuck with that task category from now on...ouch..

    I say, just use the last "report" and change the date in the title.

    jipzee you are FAR too smart!!! And correct.

    DMJ, I tried that. They changed the format from one sheet of paper to eight more detailed #$%^ forms. 2 of them excel spreadsheets.

    Can't you download it onto one of the "kids" you keep talking about and who are so enthusiastic?

    I can't imagine how hard it must be for you to have M as your boss...

    WC, sometimes it is. He will be late for his own funeral, that man. But I love him dearly (in the right way...)
