Ream isn't just for paper.

After month end this week I wont be so bogged down with work. Bogged down financially is another story.

You know I got reamed for the first time last week. It wasn't my fault ...but it was. A girl I supervise royally fucked up a project a monkey could do, and she did it three times. The second time, I checked her work extensively, and then she did something afterwards to screw it up. I then had to do it for her. So technically this simple thing was done 4 times. I just gave her a review about how she does not check her work. It's the third one she's gotten. Not to mention we have weekly one on ones where it comes up quite often.

It may have been ok but I told her to get it back frm the VP's before they noticed it was wrong the first time, and she didnt' listen to me, and EMAILED them that it was wrong and to toss it. I had a talk with her about that. They would have never known if she didn't do that.

Of course they were all pissed and it got to my boss.

This girl has been marked as my successor should anything come along, and I've been training her forever. I have no idea what happened to her. I just had the talk with her two days prior about how she is training as my replacement some day.

She got knocked down a few pegs.

Now...I play catch up, and start all over again. We rarely get a chance to shine in my department, and the one time we do, its fucked up.

As shit rolls down hill, I reamed her too. I don't want to let it hold me back.

Good news? Friday I had an orange tootsiepop. It's chocolate vodka and orange monster. Um, well I had quite a few of them I should say.

In a winter storm. Have I mentioned, how over the snow I am? I dont remember a time when we had so much snow. It's really getting to me. I don't mind the cold. I mind the snow. All. The. Time. Snow on the ground...perfectly ok with it. Falling from the sky for days and weeks? Come on.

Good for you for passing along the reaming. That sooo shouldn't have happened.
