OK - I hate ending the day on a gripe so .... back by popular demand --- Miss Kittie... in her new little outfit .... just look at her !!
I thought I had spotting yesterday so I totally freaked. I just need to calm down. I shall take a EPT tomorrow just to be sure. I am sure you are all right - its my wacky hormones. Anyone had mid cycle spotting? I think I am CD27.
But the real pisser today is that my vacation is over. I had to come into work. Why? The arse I work for.
My boss is driving me nuts. I work for a HUGE organization and he is the Chairman. I am an advisor (not legal but strategic). Yet, the ass wipe consistently gets me roped into research projects. WTF??? He is paying someone not in our network to be a strategist when he has my entire bloody department. And you know why. The other strategist is a guy. YEP. I work in the 1950's.
While he gets ready for his three week vacation, I cut my 4 days short because I was dumped with a neurotic client. To make matters worse the neurotic client has met the other strategist and thinks I work for HIM!! NO BUDDY - THE OTHER GUY'S THE FRIKKIN VENDOR!!
So whilst nutty client is demanding the doable from my group thanks to the vendor's mismanagement I have decided to take the situation in hand.
1. educate the client as to whom is in charge on our side
2. educate the vendor as to whom is in charge on our side
3. educate my boss when to call me in and when not to
It just makes my blood boil. I really hope I win the lottery so I can start my own foundation and NEVER have to hear this bullshit ever again. Some of the bullshit...
- I was 'accused' of being a feminist because I didn't change my name when I got married (I did but I use my maiden name for work) I replied "thank you!" and walked away.
- I was asked to make the coffee by a client! I replied "no thanks, just had one"
- I saved 1.6 BILLION dollars of business and it was put down to my girlie charm (ironic since I am built like a rugby player)I replied, "yes, charm, and the advanced degree's in negotiation, proven intelligence and dedication to the client issue". The ongoing management has been given to... yes, two old white guys that created the problem to begin with.
Roll on maternity leave.
