Executive Incompetence

Filed under: Kvetch! Kvetch! Kvetch! — Twin C @ 1:59 pm

I’m home sick today, but I’ve been given a way for me to check my email from home, via a SecurID. I checked in at 9:00 am, and again at 12:30 pm, thinking I couldn’t have missed much. Boy, was I wrong.

Last week I was asked to set up a meeting by a person I don’t support, for a bunch of people I don’t really work with, because one of my coworkers used to be part of the project. It was a teleconference and web meeting, with appropriate links and dial in information, that I distributed properly. The leader of the meeting and the two other people were sent all the proper leader codes separately in their own email, marked “important”.

At 10:00 am this morning, when the meeting was supposed to start, I get an email from the leader, as well as six of the attendees, asking why the teleconference hasn’t started. The leader is also asking where the leader codes are.

Oh, that’s funny, sir, because I SENT THEM TO YOU DAYS AGO. Maybe check your email? Did you think that maybe I might have already sent them to you, in an email marked “important”? I wasn’t supposed to run the meeting, just set it up, which I did. Now how about you open your freaking eyes and look at what I sent you?

It’s just so irritating when you make something so easy for someone, and they still mess it up, and then you’re the one who looks like they made a mistake.


Now I’m going back to the couch so the bird will stop yelling at me.

What a week.

Filed under: PolenBabble, Kvetch! Kvetch! Kvetch! — Twin C @ 12:49 pm

I had to spend two days in Pennsylvania, a half hour out from Philadelphia, running a bunch of web meetings for some colleagues and some other people. It was about two hours of work spread over seventeen hours. It was mostly dreadfully boring, with a few moments of excitement, like when one presenter’s computer refused to stay connected to the web meeting, and another presenter’s Powerpoint refused to open. (The first issue was solved by emailing everyone the presentation, and the second issue was solved when I force closed Powerpoint in the task manager, which made it want to open again. I felt a little clever after solving issue number two. Just a little.)

I have 200 things to do and all I feel like doing is playing first person Tetris. Even if it makes me a little nauseous.

Yay three day weekend! I was hoping to meet Twin D in Atlantic City but I did not book a comp room in time, and they’ve all disappeared. It’s probably all for the better anyway. I’m going to find a table in NYC somewhere instead on Sunday night, since it’s unlikely we’ll have our normal Sunday night game with D being away. . .

Tonight I’ll be heading to Ikea with PSB to buy a few things for the Polenbaby, then meeting Axelrad for a quick drink, then heading out to the Village to see the Scientists of Industry play. I know the drummer. He’s pretty good.
