The most awful thing in the world just happened!!!

on June 24, 2013

I’m not even playing right now. I ran out of wine!!! I had a super rough day at work and all I want is a full bottle of wine to take the edge off!! And I’m broke and alcohol-less!!! Waaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh………………..

Good….

 So, I thought I was going to have to work a 3 to midnight job. (Plenty of time to write blog posts right?!) I was told on like Tuesday of last week that my last day would be last Friday because there was someone hired for the position I was (am) in. So, I got al set to start training for the three to midnight job. Then, Friday, my boss was called into her boss’ office with an HR person. (By the way, I worked with my boss at Wal-Mart and graduated high school with her son, so we are super close.) She came out chuckling and one of the other ladies said it was never good when she came out of there laughing. Well, she stopped at the other ladies desk, said something in a low voice and then came to my desk. About the time she got to my desk, the other lady goes “well then it was meant to be!!” So, I knew right away what was going on. The position was filled tentaviley, meaning as long as this other chick passed her drug test and back ground check, she would have the job. What my boss could tell me was she was offered and accepted the position, but somethin’ somewheres didn’t work out and she didn’t get the job. I did. So. After I work my 72 days, roughly, I will be full time! I would tell you the name, but a) I’m not sure many people know the name of the place and b) it’s never good to share the name of your office on a blog, especially if you have had a stressful day. Like today.

Awww! How cute!! It has lights in it!! Buuuuuuuuuuuuuut it's empty...

Awww! How cute!! It has lights in it!! Buuuuuuuuuuuuuut it’s empty…

Since I was all set to go to another department, they had all my information and computer system set up and ready to go. (I had over 750 e-mails from the other department. Most of which I wasn’t even supposed to get over there. They just have like everyone on every e-mail list. That was just between the 17th and today…) So, we had to get every thing changed over to the department I’m staying at. Easy-peasy leamon squeasy! Right? ! WRONG!!! Why, you ask? Oh, you know, because it’s the corporate world! Hevan forbid something be easy there. So, as of 5 this afternoon whenever I left work, I couldn’t access any of my drives. (You know Q drive, H drive, L drive, blah blah blah.) Well, I could if I signed onto the computer using someone else’s signon. But then, I coulnd’t access my own e-mail.

Friday when I left work, the tables I use to input a bunch of info had been disconnected because they had been freezing. So, I couldn’t finish the last 2 pages of information I had to enter on Friday. For the first, like, 3 hours of work, all I did was look through notes and try to figure out what I needed to retype and what I didn’t. (I have a book of someone else’s notes with confusing writing so I’m trying to make my own book with less confusing notes.) Then, I had a stack of invoices that I had to key. I seriously got a manila envelope of nothing but invoices from one company. 29 invoices in this envelope. That’s not including the FedEx envelope from another company full of invoices, and all the other invoices that came in single envelopes. So. Right now, as I type this, I have about half an inch of invoices that need to be entered. Another stack about the same height that needs to be copied, sent to another department, and filed. Another stack of stuff that I have to get unit numbers on. And, yet another stack of stuff that needs to be filed. Ohhh.. And yet another stack of stuff that I couldn’t do today because I couldn’t access my tables. Awesome right?!

But anyway…… I GOT A JOB!!!!!! One that will eventually have benefits and amazing pay and job oppurtunities!!! And bosses that tooootally kill my caolorie counting. Friday, my boss’ boss bought me and two other ladies Chick-Fil-A. (If you don’t know what Chick-Fil-A is then I beg you, please please please find a chance to eat at one!!) He also bought like the entire office blizzards from Dairy Queen!!! I’m so excited!!!! Like you don’t even know how excited!!!! Wooo!! Go me!!!!

      Lol I know!! I kinda felt like they were trying to fatten me up for something! Hahaha.

      • Something I learned about corporate America long ago… They feed you to please you. You’ll see… “Sorry no raises this year. But we’ve got banana splits for lunch today!” (<~~Actually happened at a previous work place)

        Oh my gosh!! That’s horrible!!! I’m a temp right now, so I better get a raise when I go full time!!
        I’m not a fan of working in the corporate world but you gotta do what you gotta do…. Hopefully it won’t be that bad…
