It’s 2:19 p.m. and I’m still at work. Turned out to be a really busy day since I had to train the temp for the first half of the day. My list of things to do before I leave just kept growing, and now I’ll be here til COB and even then may not get everything done.
The temp thing is hilarious – turns out the agency sent a woman who is PREGNANT AND DUE OCTOBER 5!!! I totally laughed out loud when I met her. How insane is it for a temp agency to send a woman to work Sept 7 – 24 when her DUE DATE is a week later? Obviously a man set this up because a woman would know better and send someone else.
The good news is that the temp, Lisa, is smart as a whip and will do well here – she met all the other admins and seemed comfortable, so I don’t think I scared her out the door with all the instructions. I really didn’t go over too much since she’s not starting until Sept 7 – I know she’ll forget everything I told her anyway.
So for the remainder of the day I have to type up a doc for one banker, do expenses for him, clean up my desk (it’s like a tornado hit), return some calls and emails, then change the outgoing message on my phone and email. Then I can hit the road. All this in 2 1/2 hours. Yikes. Bye!
