Simply ME...

One more week!



Now that we’re getting close to the 31st of December… a new year means to me more stress at work than anything else.. so at a time when most people would be getting ready to party and getting all the plans settled for the great event,,, I’d be stressed out… freaked out... and wanting this year to end as fast as possible... to get over with it and with all the accounting problems...

One thing I hate about being responsible for the bank reports is the fact that i cant take any days off in the end of December... everything has to be closed at the 31st... all the invoices should be paid, and the reports sent by DHL to CAI.

And what is so frustrating is when the fax decides not to work for two days ... or to be more accurate the lines to CAI are down... why? i have no clue... they (the telecommunication company) said that they also don't know what's the problem ...
For two days now i have more than 10 papers to be faxed (URGENTLY), 15 e-mails sent to say that this is URGENT.. sorry for the rush... etc. And the last e-mail that was totally ignored by me.. can you go for a bookshop where you can fax them to us... well NO!!!! Absoloutely NO! because when im done with work, it means im done... I don't want to take anything back with me, I don't want to spend another minute doing things for work... especially when i feel we're treated like nothing but machines... robots! And with ON, OFF buttons.
I spent more than 2 hours next to this stupid fax machine, getting 30 reports saying Negative, that I got to a point where I dont' want to deal with it for another month at least...

Yesterday I was in my jacket... wearing my scarf and gloves ,,, when 2 passengers decided that 5 pm is the right time for them to come and ask all the silly questions not knowing that 5 pm for me means 9 hours of continuous work and frustration... so they just see the look on my face and the attitude yet they decide to keep on... with the slowest pauses and the longest stories... ummm I am a senator so can you check why am I not getting an empty seat next to me when I fly... well why on earth can't you ask for an empty seat on the check-in!!!???




And when all of a sudden they discover that our network is down and we've been using the backup for I dunno how many weeks, who suggested that I would be responsible to take all the calls from CAI, Batelco and Germany when I have no idea how to deal with all the red, white, yellow wires and big machines in the server closet!

Anyway I really hope this year will end with the minimum stress... though so far, Im afraid all the signs show otherwise....!! Hoping for the best... !
