I work for a small company with 40 employees. There are 3 people including myself who work in my department. I am the back up for BOTH of them. This year for whatever reason the fates have aligned so that both my co-workers end up taking vacation at the same time.
This is the third time this year. (I have started a rumour of them being in a secret stalker love affair in order to pass the time … no one believes me…)
To make matters worst, one of the people I supervise has visitors from far far away (not to be confused with near far away). So with my
stupid generous hat on, I told her while she could not be off at the same time as the others, I was willing to split the difference and she could work half days. She gets in at 6:30 so she is out by 10:30 leaving me with a few things to do on top of everything else.
WHAT WAS I THINKING!?!
Did I mention it is month end …
I get the
pain pleasure of reviewing all the invoices this month, because THERE IS NO ONE ELSE!?!
Today was Day 1 of 5, before someone returns, the other does not come back to work until Sept 12. I was at work from 9 am – 7 pm. I usually leave around 5:15 ish.
I STILL have work sitting on my desk that needs to be completed. 😦
Hopefully tomorrow will be an easier day.
Ever feel like you have bitten off more than you want to chew?
