One of those days..


I love it when you walk into your office and people start blaming you for something that went wrong when it isn't your fault. I totally got my ass jumped the second I walked in (late of course) and have been arguing back and forth ever since.

I have spent 2 hours this morning justifying why I wouldn't be the scapegoat for something that someone else did wrong. Fortunetly, I have all the emails and paperwork I need to back me up. Instead of economics, colleges should offer courses on how to Cover Your Ass (the pre-requiste being "how to fix the copy machine".)

So I proved that I was not the person at fault, yet I am still in trouble. Apparently emailing everyone involed and double checking the information got to the correct people isn't enough - my "communication skills" were lacking on this isssue.

The best is, I gave my dept. head a heads up that this was going on - and yet it backfired on me and I was called out for being late today - even though I provided a legitimate excuse, a made up one, but legitimate.

Whatever, I"m tired of arguing and I'm totally pissed off now.

As my co-worker said "You can try to teach a pig to sing, but it wastes your time and annoys the pig."

Of course, nothing is ever your fault.
