Whenever I write a woe-is-me post, like Wednesday’s, I get some very thoughtful comments from higher up-types. I recommend you read them. It’s good to be reminded that I don’t know everything.
I also received some good advice from our construction coordinator this morning. I was performing a ridiculous task– won’t say what; it’s so specific, if my boss reads this, he’ll know who I am– but it’s the kind of retarded thing PAs do on a regular basis.
The construction coordinator saw me, and asked why I was doing this. I rolled my eyes and said, “I have no idea. They tell me to do it every couple of weeks or so, for no reason, as far as I can tell.”
He shrugged. “Well, as long as they keep making you to do it, you know you still have a job. Can’t complain if they ask you to come back Monday.”
And it’s true. As stupid as this job is sometimes, it is a job.
