Not Sequin Penguins [Jun. 15th, 2004|09:57 am]
ok, I've said before that I have a low tolerance for people who do stupid things.
I am actually proud of myself today, I've kept my sarcastic comments to myself and did not use my "out-loud" voice.

Situation: I sent out my monthly report in an excel spreadsheet with printing parameters set up on it so that it will print on 10 pages. That way, the report is legible to the naked eye and you dont need a microscope to read it.
A department manager came into my office throwing a sheet of paper in front of me and said "Look at this! How could you send something out like this?"
Me: I'm sorry, I thought I had the print parameters set on it so that it would print out over 10 pages instead of one
Her: Well, you did. I changed it so that it will all print on one page.
Me: Here, let me print it out for you.
I print out 10 pages and hand to her.
Me: Here you go
Her: Thanks Mike, this is much easier to read. You really should have sent it out like this in the first place.
Me: ok. have a good one

There were so many things running thru my mind, but I kept things in check. Of course, my boss heard the entire thing and came into my office afterwards laughing and said "Surely, no she didnt just try to blame you for something she changed."
Me: Yea, oh well. I thought of a few comebacks that I could have said to her, but the glare from the sequin penguins on her pants was blinding me and her shirt was inside out. I figure she has bigger issues to worry about today.

Re: duh

LOL. no, wouldnt want her position. Although I cant stand mine at times, it does have its perks.
--Boss who lets me alone most of the time
--My own office
--No one reports to me, so I dont have to babysit like some of the managers here.

I did finally have to tell her that her shirt was inside out. Of course, it looked better inside-out. The shirt has a sequin cat on it. Something that she made herself. one word: Pretty
