acceptable but shitty.
I really want to just call in sick again tommorrow... spend the day sleeping and eating and relaxing...
I came in to work today (god knows why) and literally the moment my foot stepped inside the door Debbie was there *screaming* at me because we had a seminar this morning (that I was not told about nor was I schedualed for) and we ran out of regular coffee.
Now before I go on lets take a time out for a second. If you were in charge of ordering supplies BUT you had never delt with the coffee guy... because Debbie signs all of the invoices... and when you looked under the coffee machine you saw a box full of little green coffe packs and a box full of little red coffe packs... would you assume one to be decaf and the other regular?
Well evidently you would be wrong. One is decaf and the other is decaf in a new packaging.
So I got a nasty e-mail from Julie today...
We are totally out of regular coffee…. We only have decaf… We have client meetings all day. We really don't need the added pressure to scramble to get coffee. Also, last week I told you we were down to 3 rolls of paper towel. We have one roll today. Please order. Lastly, the computer in the training room still has shadows…. have you followed up on that… and the mouse, the battery falls out and doesn't work well…. did you check with Barry about a replacement…. All of these things are so important when we have our clients here. These things add up and put added stress on others in the office.
I know I shouldn't send this when I am angry but you leave me no choice. "
Lets pick apart this e-mail shall we?
Coffee... okay I'm sorry... my bad... not the end of the world.
Paper towel... you did not tell me LAST WEEK you told me LAST TUESDAY. two fucking days ago and I was sick yesterday so I'm sorry I didn't take time out of my day while I was having a nebulizer treatment to order you some god damn paper towels.
The last two things I had already taken care of WAY LONG AGO and Barry is waiting for the manufacturer to get back to him so that he can get back to me... so really her only complaint should have been the coffee and again... my bad.
The e-mailed a copy of that e-mail to BOTH of my bosses
so pretty much I'm as good as fired.
I am already on 30 day probation for bogus trumped up reasons so pretty much I'm fucked.
