Thoughts today from the homeplaceofthefuture and the reason why I had to go for an hour long walk yesterday to get away from computer and try some blood pressure lowering techniques.
Is it too much to ask that if someone is supposed to do a job and you ask them to do that job that they would actually do that job? Call me a simpleton, but I really thought that people generally do work.
The above scenario happened yesterday and immediately after I sent the email to this person (to do their job) they IM'd me and said they couldn't do it and then proceeded to have a 20 minute conversation with me about how busy they are. Do you know how long it takes to do the job that I asked?
Try 5 minutes.
If there was a way to teleport even my hands over the internet, I would have slapped this person in the face and then proceeded to show them how to do their job. Yesterday was one of those days where I was very glad to be virtual because I was so angry that in normal working scenarios I would have been in the managers office finger pointing & cussing.
The hour walk seriously felt great though!
