So Today has been a terrible day. I’ve decided that it was so terrible that it deserves a spot in my project blog for all my avid readers (read: Jenny & sometimes Radek).
I start out the day with my usual, shower get ready for work … etc … but I also figure while I’m at it I’ll also make myself a To-do list and place it on my Google Calendar. One task per hour. Here is what I gave myself:
- clean out e-mail (my mailbox is full because it’s stupid Outlook) I fuckn hate Outlook
- Send Submission for Orizon to BCSA Due at 8am (Really … I do admin work too?!)
- Submit billing for 1021 for the month
- Fix my stupid broken e-logistics so that I can schedule elevator deliveries (I Hate our IT)
- Schedule elevator deliveries (cuz we have no super-intendant … again … !!!)
- Get moving boxes
- Order Seismic Units cuz the stupid factory doesn’t fnk know what Seismic zone requirements are (why is this my job … seriously?!)
- Order Cab pads … Why can’t this also can’t be included is a mystery! …
Simple right … So I get into work … “Oh hey Bobby … did you tell the mechanics about the training today?” … Ah Fuck … no, I’ve been too busy.
This training is 6-hrs long, requires a laptop & starts in 30 minutes and requires me to pre-download lots of files …. fuk fuk fuk. Alright screw the to-do list.
Did I mention I sent out my laptop to be “Refreshed” … Seriously IT, you didn’t know XP was no longer supported? So now a last minute e-mail to half the Country has caused half of your managers to not have a laptop for like a week. How is this acceptable???!! And “Refreshed” just means that your going to sideload Win7 on top of XP on my same Crapy 4 yr old laptop and most of my programs wont work when I get it back so I’ll have to spend another day getting admin rights to fix all the problems you’ve caused … Did I mention that I fukn hate IT.
So here I am trying to set up this stupid training for my guys and for some odd reason the laptop that I’m borrowing refuses to load the conference. Now here I am holding up about a hundred guys (this training includes many offices around the country). I decide to steal one of the sale’s guys laptops and try that … after spending another 30 minutes setting that up I finally get it up and running … a good hour late into the show (good thing this training lasts 6-hrs).
Now I have no computer … My e-mail is full … I can’t receive or send anything from my blackberry since my e-mail is too full, and I still need to figure out how to send out a confirmation e-mail to book an inspection …
My mechanics still need parts … Cory wants me to be on a stupid conference call for a problem he caused … My adjusters need their dongles re-set … I need to find boxes for my move … ARRRRRGHHH! fuk it i’m going to lunch … Oh wait no, I can’t, I have to train our new Admin how to do some of my work cuz I obviously need help here. I haven’t had a lunch in weeks now.
Oh ya, this is about the time where my notary calls to tell me that he’s forgot to include Mortgage insurance and that I need to send him another 8K … Really? … Really? … This is the second mistake … I caught the first one where he wanted me to pay for first time home buyer fees that I didn’t need to pay … You couldn’t have caught it when I asked why I had some money left over from my down-payment??!! … What If I had bought that furniture you told me to spend it on ….
So here I go … again to the bank … The whole time with my work phone not stopping with questions from Contractors, Mechanics, everyone … they all want fucking something … the whole lot of them … Oh ya, I forgot to mention too … I couldn’t get in the back door cuz the code was changed … So I kicked it … hard … now my foot hurts …
