By the Pricking of My Thumbs...

Something wicked this way comes.

Today was a day of mixed blessing.

One of my best friends gave birth to a beautiful baby girl.  However, due to her unexpected early leave, my 6 person unit is down a person.  My team is now down to me and another girl.  This other girl hasn't been trained correctly or on half of the things she needs to know. 

I was told this afternoon that she will be taking over a certain section of the cases so that will leave ALL of my team's cases/work for me to process.  All this work is usually shared between three of us.  Now, it's all waiting for me.  Piles upon piles of cases that need to be processed within a certain time frame.  I'll also be doing interviews among many other things. 

The supervisors have said, "Don't worry, we'll all be fine."  Yeah.  They'll be fine because they won't see any of the problems or stress while sitting in their corner offices coming up with stupid things for us to do.

I have a feeling I'll be in the fetal position, crying under my desk within a few days.

I spend alot of time trying to understand how I could be in a Spiritual Curse that is keeping me from getting money and being retired by now and rich. I have been through so many of the same type of things you are discribing and it seems that once they do it they begin to do it more and more and eventually fire you.

If it gets me out of work, I'll listen to freaking Britney.<br />

nkenny, I'm extremely happy for my friend, too. She is going to be a great mommy.

I'd have to be sick until July. Which is when things should be back to normal. That's not going to work. <br />
