I try to be even tempered most of the time. Too much trouble comes from just letting it rip but right now I am just so PISSED. Yes, you read that right. Smiling and sunny Annie is PISSED and venting about it.
My job keeps me buried under mountains of paper and deadlines most of the time. I rely heavily on my work study student to be here and do a lot of the legwork. I had a terrific student for three years but she graduated last year. The replacement has not been nearly as reliable.
She didn't show up last week for three days. She was sick but didn't call to let me know. Now this week she isn't around AGAIN and no call. In the meantime the deadlines are crowding me, deliveries and pickups are being delayed, posters and fliers aren't getting posted, mailings aren't getting done and I'm having to call the theatre department to find out if there is anyone who can run an errand for me. Thank God there is always a student around drama to help pick up the slack. If I did all this myself, I wouldn't be at my desk 3 hours out of 8 everyday. In the meantime, I have faculty coming in venting at me because things that need to be done aren't getting DONE.
I am sooooooo PISSED!!!!!
