View Full Version : Work is so DEAD today.

There are literally only 3 people working in my division today. The other offices (Chicago, San Francisco, etc) are closed for a week since it is the Xmas/New Year's holiday, however, my office must stay open because we're the division headquarters. :o It's especially galling since most of our clients are government agencies or large corporations which also take this week off.

Of course most of the other people have just gone on vacation however since I'm relatively new I haven't racked up much vacation time yet so I have to drudge on. Mean while I've had to anwser exactly one e-mail and have been bored out of mind the rest of the day. The secretary has been playing solitaire for several hours now while the manager went to an early lunch two hours ago and we haven't seen him since. If they didn't pay me so well I'd just go home.

Yeah, its pretty dead at my bit as well, and I'm pissing people off because I get to go home after about 3 hours work, and they have to stay and do the proper hours lol

Wednesday I was at my desk for almost my normal hours and yesterday we gave up and went to the pub at 12:30.
Today I'm "working" from home :)

Dead all week here. BOR-ing. At least I can leave here in an hou ror so (2:30) since I have to make a field trip to my hometown :bounce: and do some work there, after which it'll be a waste of time coming back so I might as well stay home, huzzah! Early long weekend.

oerdin..do you have one of those jobs where you have to pretend like you're hard at work even when there is nothing at all to do? i have one of those jobs >.> :(

The jobs that are best are the ones where you can go home when you have nothing to do and still get paid.

01-01-2006, 09:58:33
