Words on Wednesday

Posted: Wednesday, March 07, 2007 by Travis Cody in

Exultant - That's what I felt at 08:00 Tuesday when it looked like my 10-12 hour days were about to pay off and I was going to be finished on schedule.

Disbelief - That's what I felt at 08:30 Tuesday when they brought me 17 invoices that a vendor had just submitted and had to be posted for end of year. WTF?? Now I get them? Some were dated 6 months ago for cripes sake!

Irritation - That's what I felt at 09:00 Tuesday going through the process of posting the dang invoices with people bugging me every 10 minutes wondering when I would be finished. It's a three step process and it takes as long as it takes. Now go away.

Flabbergasted - That's what I felt at 11:40 when the invoices were finally posted after four different interruptions. I was three hours behind schedule.

Can I punt now? No! Gotta go for it on 4th and 27. There's no play for 4th and 27.

Hungry dammit - Lemme just run the frigging utility and get something to eat. It takes 45 minutes and I can't do anything else while it's running. I'm getting food.

Bite me. No I didn't say it, but I did think it.

Focused - Ahhhhh. That's what I felt at 12:50 after two double decker tacos and grilled steak taquitos from the Bell. Now time to really get down to reconciling.

Grrrrrr - Why won't the feakin' report run???? Fix the *$%$()(&($## system!!!

Sigh - Why did I think it would tie out?

Blush - My bad...forgot to post something.

NO!!!!! Don't delete that one!!! Delete THAT one and post THAT one!! Yeesh.

Done - Well, at least done with reconciling. Now I get to catch up on the orders that have been piling up, and the reports that need to be summarized, and the prep for audit.

Tired - I'm off to ZZZZZZ-ville.

Hell week extended.

    It's never-ending, isn't it??? If I wrote down my emotions during the day, I don't think I could find enough bad words to go around...I'd have to start using Italian ones!!!

    I wish you peace and tranquility, VERY SOON!!!

  1. Jay says:

    It's ironic that coworkers are often the very thing that prevent us from getting our work done. Instead of coworkers, they should be call noworkers.
