|02:04 pm - Work update|
Okay. For those who have followed my recent work drama.... :-)
So I stayed at my job, and things let up a little. The management started hiring temps, and some of the work started getting done around me. That was nice. Kind of a relief. :-)
Then Richie, the second super who went to part-time for medical reasons, left on Friday. Along with Gina, a fellow Harry Potter fan who'd been doing billing longer than I've been here.
So Richie gone means that Michael (finace guy) and I are left with some responsibilities that he used to take care of. Also, I've been doing things that are not technically part of my job description--basically just to help out during the catch-up time we're going through.
I just spent an hour on a conference call with people from upstairs and the company whose ad software we use, trying to figure out what we're doing now that they're upgrading, and so forth. It was exhausting. I've decided I hate conference calls.
But the direction I see my job going right now, I think I'm going to need to ask the upstairs boss about changes to my job description, hiring me an assistant, and/or a pay raise.
Maybe that's what I'm supposed to do.
Current Mood: aggravated
Hmm! changes to job description, assistant, pay raise? Sounds good to me! Especially the raise part, that'd be nice. Hee hee.
The "changes to job description" part was actually mentioned in passing by the upstairs boss, and I'd already been thinking that if these changes in responsibilities keep going, I'd have to ask for a raise. If she actually does bring this up again (or it comes up in passing), I am so doing that.
I get decent pay for what I'm supposed to be doing.
I need a tad more if they want me learning the finance system, etc. :-)
I second the "Hmmm." Hmmm.
Well, see what happens.
I shall, and shall keep you all updated.
I really like that icon. (Oh! Must remember to watch/tape Dr. Who this week...I only caught a few minutes last Friday because my brain turned to mush and did not retain the date.)

Just good luck about the pay raise. Point out that if you resign they will have to hire someone else, pay him/her at least the same, and train them. Better the devil or (in your case) the angel you know.

The fact that I can even remember (more or less) what that means is frightening to me. :-D
Ah, the days of listening to Klingon language tapes....

Tapes!? Batlh qeylIS, I don't think I made it that far. ;-D

I regret to say my previous statement has dishonored myself. Upon looking through old software yesterday, I found I had never owned the Klingon tapes, but I do own the comphrehensive Klingon Language Library on CD-ROM. :-D
