from_the_corner: (House fun at work)

Coming back to work, after almost two weeks of free time - not funny. I'm completely exhausted and still a bit in shock. Mostly because I had to (yet again!) move to a different room. I so wasn't prepared for this today. I has wearing high heels, dammit. Not to mention clothes more suitable for a conference, than physical work. I was dreaming of shower after only couple of hours.
But I'm actually happy that I'll now be ina different place. I'm leaving behind the craziness that is our customer support room. I'll be sharing a place with our production administrator, a gut I like and get along really well.
It's the only good change that happened recently.

Ok, enough blabbering and on to the pictures:

Week 16 )
from_the_corner: (House fun at work)

So today, at about 2:30 pm, I was told that I'm suppose to arrange shipment of three containers to Sri Lanka. And everything must be ready by Wednesday.

I actually said "You're kidding?" to my boss. Probably not the smartest thing to do, but I just couldn't control myself.

Because it's a joke. I have to order specially designed pallets, for the machine we're shipping. I have no idea what kind of paperwork Sri Lanka requires, and since it's a sea shipment, they'll obviously need more than just an invoice.

On top of it, tomorrow I have to go to Levis again. Apparently my boss thinks 4 hours of actual work time is going to be enough to make everything ready. Clearly, she's insane... *headdesk*

This is what I call good start of the week. Not.

But enough whining. On to the pictures.

Comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.

Below the cut are 5 subjects [ profile] tarlanx gave me. It's actually fun, trying to "explain" myself =)

On to the meme )

So, that's it. And I'm sure by tomorrow I'll have even more to add =)
And let me know if you want me to pick the 5 things for you.

I'm having an exceptionally bad day today.

The Cat was throwing up all morning. I'm really worried.

I will never, ever buy anything from Levis. Seriously, never again. I was this close to hanging up on them today.

My wrists have been hurting for a few days, and it's getting worse. And I'm not ever carrying anything heavy.

My friend is spreading conspiracy theories, about what's happening at work right now. I don't really believe him (I don't even want to), but it still freaks me out a bit.

I have so much work, I should spend next week sleeping and eating here. And still probably wouldn't get everything done.

Edit: Fraking Levis. They actually made cry. I hate them so very, very much...

They fired another 8 people today.
And I knew they would, but fuck, it was still like punch to the gut.
And they fired my friend, a guy I care a lot about. I can't even talk to him properly now, because he's busy, but maybe it's for the better, because I might just start crying. And it doesn't help, that I knew they'll want to get rid of him, too.

It's called "restructurization", the effect of global crisis. But what it really is, is a result of a fucked up corporate politics and bad management.

Field trip

I've visited Levi's factory today.
It's our only customer that kind of refuses to acknowledge the fact that I'm not working in customer support anymore, and so I'm heavily involved in handling them.
I have to say I was pretty impressed. Piles after piles after piles of jeans, in various stages of production. The number of clothes they send out each month - it's mind boggling. It looks massive even if what they do know, is maybe half what they've produced just a couple of years ago. They even have zipper locks designed specifically for them :)

I'm tired. Four hours in a car and the road was difficult, what with frozen rain and heavy fog. But I'm glad I went. It's always easier to deal with someone, when you can put a face with a name.

1.I've changed my layout. Again. I just can't find the one I'm really satisfied with. This one is almost ok, but still not quite enough.

2.I now have almost all icons for my [ profile] scifi100 Cameron Mitchell challenge. But I still have three prompts left and I can't find good caps for them. I'm frustrated beyond words. Been re-watching random parts of various episodes, but with little luck. *fumes* I still have a week before my deadline, but right now I'm simply out of ideas.

3.My mp3 player died today :( I never ever go out (further than my closest grocery store) without it. On my way back from work I felt so stupidly exposed. I know it sounds crazy and I know I'm totally weird, but I just feel so damn uncomfortable, without the barrier of my headphones. 

4.Our boss gave formal Company Is In Trouble, Must Prepare For Difficult Times speech today. She didn't say how bad it's gonna get, though. Not yet. And it's going to be really bad. I know it all too well, being privy to the plans for closes future. But those plans are so much a secret still, that I had to sign a non-disclosure agreement. It makes me feel really uncomfortable, listening to people speculating about our future and pretending that I don't know a thing.

5.I'm working tomorrow. I'm so not happy about it, but couldn't really say no. Hope you all will have more fun this weekend, than me. 

Sweet dreams, everyone.

Since yesterday, my company has fired four people. And that's just the beginning...

Insert another work-related rant here:............................................................
(And make it long and full of expletives).

I'm too busy and too angry to actually write it.
from_the_corner: (Christmas - sanity)
Can you smell it? :)

My work in 2008 is done. And I have time off until January 5th. Yay!!

So - happy Christmas everyone. What? I can wish it to others, right?

The icon lies, btw. I don't really want it back. I'm good as I am =)

from_the_corner: (up to no good)
"I will send you scan of the icons right away".

I was writing an e-mail to one of my suppliers and this is was I almost sent.... And just few minutes earlier I was checking Merlin icons posts =)

*shakes head*

Frankly speaking, I'm obsessed with Merlin. And it feels so damn good *g* I love my new shiny, slashy fandom.
Stocktaking starts tomorrow, and usually by this time I'm a complete mess, snapping at everybody and spitting venom. But right now - I'm giddy !

*clings to Merlin (and Arthur)*

There will be icons, probably tomorrow =)

Recently, I've started toying with a thought, that maybe I'll quit smoking. Try those chewing gums or the patches.

It kind of slipped my mind (although I don't understand how's that even possible), that trying this RIGHT NOW, is beyond ridiculous. I could probably quit eating more easily.

It's December, frikking end of the year. The only things that keep me (relatively) sane and alive, are coffee, cigarettes and my fandoms. And with no time for fandom stuff, I cling to the other two even more.

I'll try quitting in January. Maybe.

I'm back to work today. It's not as bad as I predicted. It's worse.

Extra special feature: I just discovered, that the Warehouse Guy (my nemesis, and I'll probably get fired one day because of him) can't count to seven. No, seriously, he can't.

There was a delivery on Friday, one lousy pallet, with seven boxes on it. He counted six. SIX.
It's beyond me, how he could made such a mistake. And how he manages deliveries with 100+ pallets.

I'm beginning to understand why our stock is one, big discrepancy...

Someone, please kick my butt and tell me to actually start working?

'Cos all I've been doing today is reading [ profile] sgabigbang .

My usual accomplice in creating a mayhem is not at work today.

I'm so bored.
So very, very bored.
So damn bored.

Guess I have come up with something myself...

Right now I'm singing. Not that anyone is that surprised. Most of people here think I've lost it some time go. *shrugs* Whatever.

I will not post another rant, about how fucked up my work is.

I'm allergic to stupidity.
it's not about me expecting that people won't make mistakes. God knows I'm doing my share of those.

But stupidity? Pure and simple and for which there is no explanation? This is something that makes me furious. Especially when it's repetitive.

I am so very angry right now...

My company hired new sales rep.
During daily staff meeting, the guy was asked to introduce himself.
He started with:

"Hi. My name is K. and I'm single".


Well, it's good to know. Too bad you're not my type.

I'm still snickering (on the inside).

1.My usual bus showed up good few minutes earlier than it should and I just missed it. Had to wait almost 40 minutes for the next one, nothing to read, bored to tears. Funny thing is, any other day I could simply walk, because it's not really that far. But today I thought it would be a good idea to wear pretty high heels. So not the shoes to walk few miles in...

2.In the office, I found out that our beloved GM cut us off milk. She claims that since not everybody uses it, those who do, must bring it themselves. It's all because we are suppose to cut our expenses. And everybody knows, that 50 USD per month will make so much difference (what with our expenses being usually at 10,000)... And yes, I am being sarcastic.

3.I was at home for just two days and the amount of things that piled up during this time is just insane. There's like 50 new files on my desk + 100-something e-mails and everybody want everything now. I am trying to have more patience and not to snap at people all the time, but I'm slowly losing it again.

4.Big Bad Boss is arriving today afternoon, and we are expected to be "available". I wonder how long they are going to keep us here today...

5.There is no 5. I just don't like even numbers.

So, I've posted stocktaking schedule few hours ago.
Since then, half of the people listed came to me, whining why they are teamed with X or why they have to work in sector Y.

*bangs head against the wall*


I'm not trying to be mean (well, mostly) and this is not a way to get back at them. But I will not adjust everything to please each and every one of them. I don't have time for this. Not to mention that I had to take into consideration where they can work best. Not what's the easiest thing to count or whom they like better as a teammate.
It's work and not lazy weekend on the beach.

I didn't even notice when I slipped again into "bitch" mode. But the switch off button will only work when this is over.
