This week has been one helluva week. I have been covering for a colleague who is on vacation. Whenever this one particular person is out of the office, I end up handling her matters. That doesn’t bother me. It is nice to break up the monotony that some of the contracts I work on a daily basis. It doesn’t mean that responsibilities to my matters stop, it just means I have to juggle things around.
So this week I have dealt with hot head partners, slow-moving directors and idiot principals. It amazes me how the higher someone goes up the chain, the less they seem to grasp or understand. I think it is mainly that they try not to understand things with the hope that I’ll concede on my point and just allow them to go with my blessing. I may get fed up but I don’t concede that easily. They don’t pay me the little bucks to concede. I’ve rolled with the punches and tried to keep a smile on my face. I can’t lie that it has been tough but I see the weekend on the horizon. Just need to get through Friday unscathed.
