in office day

December 12th, 2006 at 07:18 pm

went into work today. Several times I started to send out email telling people they needed to do something, but stopped myself. I'm trying really hard to back off on trying to keep up with everything. It's the managers job to make sure the stuff that needs to get done, does. If they don't care enough to track it why should I. But it's very hard Frown

Spent two hours uninstalling and reinstalling software. Hate that.

Went to Ruby Tuesday's with friend for lunch. Got a $25 GC and $5 bonus. Spent $35

Went to Dollar Store and bought a bunch of stuff for brothers xmas plus some xmas bags and odds and ends for me. Spent $15, $7.50 for his stuff.

I called Paragon about the broken stained glass angel and they are priority shipping another one. They said don't bother sending the other one back, give it to the goodwill or do whatever want with it. My mom is going to try to glue it. Maybe she'll get two angels.

Got the half.com book I ordered for niece in mail today and sold one of my books and put it in the mail.

Finished reading the library book Strange Candy by Laurell K. Hamilton. Short stories. OK

  1. Enough Wealth Says:

    Not sure if it's relevant to you, as I haven't read all your posts, but - if you do some of the "manager's" work by emailing people reminders about stuff that's due (and CC your manager) you can easily end up being promoted to team leader/manager or whatever - in the long run.

    The main reason "workers" stay as that, rather than getting promoted, is that they just "stick to their knitting" rather than going "above and beyond" their normal duties. (ps. Spending long hours getting your "normal" work done doesn't count - it's often viewed as just making up for doing you work inefficiently, even if it's really a result of being given too much to do in normal work hours, or having to make up for someone else's slack).

    Of course you need to approach this the "right" way - otherwise you could annoy co-workers, or, if you have a poor manager, get resentment rather than appreciation from him/her.

    Anyhow, just a thought - I know from experience that doing manager-type activities is the best way to end up being promoted to management position.
