We Interrupt This Wedding......

I must once again interrupt the wedding...today I must rant....

WORK RANT
Despite the bad weather, despite having to go back to work after a 3-day weekend...I was in pretty good spirits today.  I decided to forget the filing and concentrate on the leave slips (which is about as bad).  I'm the first in the office and the lady that normally beats me there called to say she was at a doctor's appointment and would be in after that.  No problem...there are a few things that need to be done first thing in the morning that she normally handles but I went ahead and did those - ran reports, emailed reports, picked up weekend paperwork and mail and then sorted it.  Then I basically processed leave slips.  Everyone shows up (one with a broken ankle - another story entirely) and well work goes on as usual.

Around quitting time, the lady that was late due to the doctor's appointment and I are chatting about the meetings tomorrow to go over the yearly enrollment with health insurance and such..she's attending the afternoon meeting, I'm going in the morning.  She's somewhat complaining because though she'll be in the office for the morning the computers will be down and she'll get nothing done.  I then make the obvious suggestion "You could put some paperwork in order for me."  Her response?  "I don't do that."  And she walked away....

You all did read the first paragraph right?  You saw what I did for her this morning right?  You did notice I didn't ask her to actually file right?  You do realize why I'm a little ticked right?

Even more amazing while walking to our cars she THANKED ME FOR DOING THE MORNING REPORTS AND SUCH.....

Teamwork, yeah...the only teamwork that exists in this office involves everyone's job but mine.
