yesterday, i spent ALL day working on it. all day. and wasn’t finished yet. and got a bunch of new ones from my boss.
then, just a few minutes ago, she comes in to explain how she wants me to add some other things on. i explained that i wasn’t sure i’d be able to, since right now the backup was insane… and i showed her what we have to do to accomplish this thing she’s asked for.
she said that it was ridiculous. she recommended “another” way to do it. i showed her that indeed, her “other” way was exactly what i had been doing. she looked baffled. said she couldn’t imagine that it should be taking so much effort to do it. then she said that i shouldn’t do it; that my colleague should do it. i said that my colleague had too much on her plate already, which is why it had been delegated to me. she said in that case, i should scrap the whole project.
the whole project.
not that i’m attached, just that’s a lot of work i did yesterday, that she even wants me to throw out. really. she said she’d go through it tomorrow and see if there’s any reason to keep any of it, and otherwise throw the whole thing out.
i asked her what she wants me to do with all the newsletters she’s STILL forwarding to me. she said … um, keep them in your inbox until we sort out what to do with them.
that’ll be never.
anyway, i decided to subject my colleagues to my visit to combichrist’s myspace page for a little musical therapy. for me. 🙂 it was lovely. in a … you know… not very lovely way. 🙂
