Yes, I am still complaining about work....

I have 14 business days left not including the 3 hours and 13 minutes left of today. I am trying to breath in and out very slowly. I hear this reduces the amount of steam coming out of your ears and nostrils. It happened again. The lady at work who prefers to talk to my boss about things I have done that she doesn't understand has struck again. She has walked past my office and gone to my boss to ask about a letter I asked her to sign so I can send a bill to a client.

I know I only have 3 weeks left here but I do still work here. My office is on the way to my boss' office. Why not stop by and ask me the question instead of trying to get me in trouble over something that I could have easily explained? Instead I have to explain it all to my boss who then sends me down to this lady's office to try to explain what the deal is. Of course this lady is in her office MAYBE 4 hours per week, the rest of the time she works from home. Perhaps it is just the lack of chocolate talking but I swear it is taking every ounce of restraint I have left not to draw a map to my office and tack it on her door complete with a little you are here star at her office and a checkered flag at my office.

I really just want to grab my purse, walk out the door and never come back. But I know I will regret that later. This is too small of a community for me to get away with that and still be able to get a job someday when I want to go back into the workforce. Did I mention they haven't posted the position yet for the girl who is replacing me? We work in offices next to each other and she has not trained at all yet because my boss wants to hire someone to take her place first before I start training her. Never mind that I am leaving in 3 weeks and they aren't even getting resumes yet. I know in the grand scheme of things this is not that big of a deal but its still very hard not to say something smart alecky.

i love the idea of tacking the map on her door. that's so frustrating! You should start counting down the hours until your freedom!

I, too, like the map idea, or even a memo. Why in the world hasn't your boss corrected that woman? Crazy. Seriously, you've behaved with more grace than I probably would have (unfortunately).

It's almost over. Just keep telling yourself that.... it's almost over.

Now go treat yourself to some m&ms :-)

You're one day closer to being done there!

But you're right not to burn bridges, no matter how tempting it is to get up and walk out.

You're close enough now that you can do an hours countdown!
