Difficult times ahead in the workplace. Found out from the immediate boss that the big boss seems to think I do nothing at work. heh. So, starting tomorrow, I will be re implementing log sheets in the programming department. Something that shows time spent on projects, jobs done, etc. My only gripe is that the reason I stopped doing the logs in the first place was that it took 30 minutes out of every day, in 3-5 minute nibbles at a time.
I wonder what the big boss is going to say when he sees that there are folks doing 10-16 hour a day shifts because he won’t authorize new personnel? Or for that matter vacation time in the near future, because nobody can be spared?
All it will take is one person to quit for the whole department to be brought to the floor. Am I that person? Better question, is Kev? I feel that if either of us left tomorrow, that the company would take a crippling financial blow from lost work, and one that it probably couldn’t recover from. If only some company would sneak up on Kev and offer him 60k or so to leave, I’m sure he’d do it in a heartbeat. I’m keeping my eyes open… Perhaps a more respectable and respecting job is on the horizon. I’d like to go back to doing library work.. I hope that my application went ok up north. I haven’t heard from them, perhaps I’ll call them tomorrow.
In related news, another fun person left us the other day. Joel is the latest in a long list of goodly folks that went west in the footsteps of Bheesham, Tuan, and Paul. Competent people who saw fit to get out while the getting was good.
Perhaps I can convince the girl I’m interested in to adopt me as a resident poet and worshipper of her….
