Or maybe just whine. Actually, let's go with whine, since I feel rather tired and peeved and just generally whiny.
There's the usual HATE MY JOB whine I could indulge in, but here are a few specifics. Staying in whine mode of course. Our receptionist, who is new and fairly nice so I really shouldn't be too hard on her, is annoying when she announces calls. The PA system makes two beeping sounds before you can actually talk and she never waits for the second beep. So all of her announcements are cut in half and we have to call her and ask who that last call was for. I mean, nobody had to tell ME to wait for the second beep! Whine, whine.
New Boss is still an ass. Actually, he's a well paid, baby-boomer male in a cushy job and he has a slave (ME!) to do all the un-glamorous tasks. This year he is apparently the one seaching for new healthcare insurance and I have nothing to do with the process except face the unhappy employees when they have questions. And of course he's wedging his buddy-buddy insurance broker in and my trusted and longtime guy is out. Bastard! I know, dangerously close to a rant here.
My A/R clerk (at least I thing she's still mine, New Boss might have sole her too) will be on vacation tomorrow. This means all the whiny, pushy sales people will be lining up at my door tomorrow begging to let their deadbeat customers buy just one more thing. They'll pay on Monday, I swear. Yeah right.
My dog decided to not wait for the treat I give her when I come home for lunch just to see her friendly face and have a nice petting session and ate a blue pen. Right in the middle of my living room rug. Waa waa.
I don't want to go to class tonight, see first line, even though we'll be getting our second test scores back tonight. I did ok, so I'm not really worried. I just want to go home and wallow in my whiny-ness.( Cut for WoW whine )
Ok, now I have to get ready to talk to the ADP guy about how much they screwed up our timeclock and payroll system. For anyone thinking of going with ADP, don't! They are the most disorganized group I've ever had the misfortune of working with. I could do a whole rant/whine just on how they screwed up our local taxes. But, I'll save that for another post.
