First, my AP clerk of ten years has retired! We're really well suited to each other, I thought. We're both a bit odd and can be cranky. But we have always respected each other's moods. We have similar slightly skewed senses of humor. And we both knit. Now she's gone. And I miss her. Not that I didn't know this day was coming. The woman just turned 74 this year, God love her and hope I'm as lively as she at that age. Anyway, and this is where the hectic part comes in, I've been scrambling to get her job split up between me and our floater accounting clerk. And that has meant training in addition to having to relearn tasks I haven't done in ten years. Good times indeed.
Then there's the new accounting system we're getting here at work. Hahahahahaha!! Just had to get that out of the way. New Boss swears by it. It will make our lives so much easier. It will bring us into the current century, current decade will have to wait another ten years. We'll all be so happy to have it and will bow down and kiss his feet for bringing...ah who cares! It's gonna suck and no matter what he tells me, I'm not going to like it. Shades of his wonder payroll system (ADP) come to mind.
Anyway, we've all had to endure HOURS, DAYS even, of training on this thing and have been ENCOURAGED to practice in our copious amounts of spare time. New Boss and our VP (who is our IT guy) have been joined at the hip behind closed doors so much they've generated amusing rumors, and have sweated blood and tears for this thing. We were supposed to flip the switch this past Monday. On Friday the sales manager (big baby) goes to the president and says he hasn't had any training and his sales team doesn't know how to use the new system. Can you guess what the reaction was? I'm still chuckling about it. But mad too because if it had been anyone else, they'd have been out the door so fast their heads would spin. So, launch has been delayed. OMG!
Another casualty of the delayed launch is the Bromace between New Boss and VP. VP is a very nosy guy. He apparently was reading New Boss's emails over his shoulder this morning and pissed New Boss off. Ahh well, you know what they say about relationships formed under extreme conditions. Hee he
