GC’s Post:

The reason I haven’t been posting is because I’ve been working till about 8 every night, and the last thing I want to do when I get home is fire up my laptop.

While work is great, my boss Big Foot is reaching new levels of craziness. Working my butt off, a lot of the other folks in the company have taken it upon themselves to acknowledge my work via emails to some of the senior folk. This has had an adverse affect on my boss. Today she sat me today to tell me that all the good vibes coming my way means that everyone thinks I am weak. I didn’t get the correlation and told her so. It’s a shame, because I love my job right now.

The following quote comes to mind: “I long to accomplish a great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish humble tasks as though they were great and noble”

While there are piles of bills unpaid, voicemails unanswered and many an invitation declined lately, the bright spot was this weekend, when I volunteered at a fundraiser held by a local women’s center. The fundraiser was at Hazelton Mall, which for all you out of town folks is a very uppity mall, in the middle of Yorkville. I was expecting to do the usual stuff, like welcome people, or sell raffle tickets, but instead was asked to model in their mini fashion show. I had the pleasure of meeting some of the girls from Twenty Something TV. They were of course gorgeous and perfect as TV girls are! We had to wear some of the most hideous designer outfits ever seen, and auction them off at prices that made me choke a little. It was a great afternoon, turns out volunteering is more fun when you get your hair done and snazzy make up to go with it. I also got picked up by the sexy photographer! And yes the waiter……

So that’s my rather boring life in a nut shell…

I am reading a great book, that i left at work! Name to follow. Though I confess that its taken me three weeks to get through chapter 1....

Till my next breather…..

Intelligence reports suggest that your boss may be playa hating

was reading a book the other day in which someone told the main character that in order to play the game you have to make your boss look good. they have fragile egos you know and they do have the power to stall or completely f up your career so watch your step.

CP honey, at least you have time to get an apology post in... I've been so busy and slack I haven't even done that!!

Glad to hear that volunteering involves makeup and hairstyling.. maye I'll go check out the community garden in my new neighourhood and see if I can't get myself some of that ;^)

You better watch that boss closely, you hear.

Abeni said...

I don't get the correlation eithe..

Leon said...

That boss sounds like the type of boss that is insecure and has something to prove. She probably tries to avoid being seen as weak too.

Stunner said...

Seems you have an insecure hater for a boss. I bet you will be volunteering soon after all that fun. :0
