    I have so much shit going at work right now I can't even think straight. I am essentially being forced into an appointment I don't want and should not need after being with the company for over 20 years but whatever. The powers that be are far more powerful than me. I fold.

    FOCUS: When have you been in a similar situation in your career and how did you handle it?
    And of course the ladies. I wish I could pull off a suit like she is. She is owning it. Hot.

    What's the appointment for? Just see what you can delegate down and prioritize everything else by size/due date.

    It's an additional appointment, through the company directly, they are now requiring. It cannot be delegated at all. I think my shit should already be grandfathered in so to speak. They do not share my opinion.

    Focus: I am at the bottom of the food chain, so I take it. Can't delegate because I'm also the only one capable of completing some of the work here, at least for the time being. You climb a mountain one step a time, that's how I look at it when the work in front of me feels impossible.

    Some new HR rule came into EA when I was there for about a year that said all employees had to take this new online workplace harassment training seminar/test. A newly hired junior HR Bitch thought it'd be time to exert some of her newly found power by asking me to take the training.

    I said, "no... I'm a contractor, and I resent the fact that you think I'll harass someone without the training... if you have a problem with someone being harassed, then come and see me, and then we can talk about it, or let me go, but I refuse to start with the premise that I'll harass someone unless I'm told not to first."

    HR Bitch started to pick a fight, and basically said she wasn't going to authorize the release of my payment unless I took it, so I packed up my shit in a box and was on the way out when the VP saw me doing it and asked WTF was going on. I told him, he lost it, HR Bitch had to come down and apologize, and no more of my time was wasted. Nor did we ever see or hear from new HR Bitch again.

    So yeah, I handled it probably the exact opposite to how people should handle it... but I hate it when people have too much time on their hands and fuck things up. Half of the shit that the employees had to do like that were a joke and beyond useless, but it helped someone validate their existence by convincing people that it was a problem to begin with, and then putting in place a "solution" for said fake problem.

    That is the REAL scope creep as a company gets bigger... all the bullshit that is tacked onto just getting stuff done. And the bigger company you work for, the more buffer in time and money they have to be able to tolerate that bullshit. Small startup? No fucking way would that happen, because you have no time as it is, and you have to get shit done ASAP.

    I don't know about "appointments", but I've been given more leadership "opportunities" this year which really means "We want to tack on more work for no additional pay or time to complete it."

    In other news, I'm knocked up and really can't drink anymore. Cue trombone. All I want is a margarita in each hand.

    Well, no memo, but there were signs . . .
    Wait until the cravings kick in and you scream at your husband "YOU CANNOT POSSIBLY FIND ME ATTRACTIVE RIGHT NOW!" and he says, "well, that's why I'm trying to put it in your butt, duh." Then it'll really get weird.

    I do wish I could pull pin stripes off like that. I look stupid in stripes. I don't know whether it is my height or hair color. All my suits are solids.

    Cheers, to being single. Except I am not drinking because of the frame of mind I am in.

    Drink 12 for me. I will drink when I have my mood under control. I don't feel like having alcohol turn me into a sappy, disgusting mess. The world doesn't deserve to have to deal with me like that. First day off in two weeks? Why so long?

    Work. By nature, I'm pretty grouchy in a "Get off my lawn" sort of way. If I've been drinking the night before I'm more apt to be a little less pleasant when someone shits on my day.

    I like my job, I just need to be somewhat flexible and pleasant with my clients rather then telling them to go fuck themselves when they act like self entitled jack asses.
