Last minute "emergencies" at work. I am working remotely yesterday and today. from my mom's in VA, which is fine. Slow week, and i get done what I need to, and its not even 1pm.
then I get an email from somone who says 'we need to do this filing either monday or tuesday" which means we have to send it to our DC office either today or monday, in the overnight package. for some archaic reason, my group actually takes the stuff down to the mailroom. that's it. but the other depts prep and create it. as is our company mantra "that's the way we've always done things"
so after much back and forth, and me telling them, we can do it, but...a. the person in dc is out until Tuesday and b. they would have to take it down themselves, it was decided I would handle on Monday. whatever. i hate this. its slow, we are pretty much done, and you come up with a supposed "emergency" which really isnt.
