Lopsided Beds

crazy boss 2 Do you get annoyed when you get emails

and they are CC’d to everyone and their brother.

Do you know what I mean?

The emails says something like:

Employee,

Turn in this file.

Sincerely,

Boss

CC

Boss’s Boss

Boss’s Boss’s Boss

Head of Maintanence

Mayor of city

All  Workers in  Department Company

It happens at my job!

It makes me want to scream.

Sometimes I wonder if these

‘super duper educated people I work for’

passed Pre-School

with their interpersonal skills!

(I know for absolute certainty

they did NOT go to my friend

Teacher Tom’s Pre School!)

Whatever happened to

solving problems respectfully.crazy_boss

You know, sitting down

looking someone in the eye and saying

“Let’s work this out! Can I have this file?” lopsided bed I probably wouldn’t be writing about this at all.

If my bed wasn’t lopsided.

I woke up on the wrong side of it this morning…

Hope your day is filled with

a perfectly peaceful work environment!

I will cross my fingers that you don’t get any

CC’d memo’s!

What is your favorite thing about your job?

I love the kids!

I am sorry your bed is lopsided. Print out your emails and use them to prop up your bed.

Oh, do I know what you mean. If there is a problem then just go to the person and deal with it. I worked in the dark ages so we didn't have computer communication. We had meetings. After work meetings and everyone had to sit through them while something only one person was guilty of was addressed.

Now, just get back in bed and get out on the other side. HA Wish it was that easy.

By the way, how do you make a strike out on a blog? I can do it on word processing but not on a blog.

Hope your day improves.

Oh that would drive me crazy...I hope you have a wonderful day despite waking up on the wrong side of the bed. I'm sorry I have been MIA for so long, but I am getting back on the right track. Thanks for all your prayers.

Busy Bee Suz said...

I can only guess the lopsided part is because of Gary and his 'in bed' desserts!!!! :)
I hope your day gets better. My job? Oh, I have a job? I love the people at my job. I married one of them and I 'made' 2 of them. Plus the animals, they never talk back to me or CC me in emails.
Hugs, Suz

Emals at work have become a CYA email. "Make sure you save it because you know one year from now, someone will be referencing it and you'll need it!" Right?!

Martha in PA said...

I'm sorry you got up on the wrong side of the bed, I hate when that happens! I always hated the emails CCd to 20 people, really when a phone call would have been sufficient!

I need to find a job, I am officially getting bored after not working for 8 months!!!

mimbles said...

There are only four people in the office I work at, and about a dozen in the whole company, so I think I'm pretty safe from this sort of thing. The only cc'd work emails I get are ones with links to funny videos LOL

Thanks for dropping by my blog, it's lovely to meet you :-)

my only job for the past seven years is being a momma....not much of it i don't love....except housework....that will never change! blessings...

American in Norway said...

Bless...hope you are feeling better! : ) I got up on the wrong side of the bed today too! grrrrr

Linds said...

well, seeing how I am a stay at home mom and all, sometimes I miss the constant adult interaction. Gets hard having conversations with a baby and a dog :)

He & Me + 3 said...

Oh no friend. I hope you have a great day at work. I will be praying for you today...

Darlene said...

That is too funny! The favorite part about my job is that it is only part-time (3 hours a day!!!)!!

Eyeglasses & Endzones said...

I know EXACTLY what you mean. The other thing that really gets my goat is when you are BCC'ed on something from a co-worker that is NONE of your business...don't they realize that a work server KNOWS that BCC is still visible to the outside world if it needed to be?????Sheesh. Hope you are having a better day..;)

Ms Bibi said...

I hate when I wake up on the wrong side of my bed....I feel bad for those around me.

I do hate those CC email.

I love your blog...lol

THanks for stopping by

Kimmy said...

Uh...that was lame! I agree, why couldn't he just ask for it to you and not the whole company? I agree with you...I hate when boss' do that. I once worked at Blockbuster Video (years ago) and the boss was a jerk and got attitude with me in front of the customers. I nearly cried too. It serves no point!

My current job though, I love cause it's just me and the boss and NO GOSSIP!! I don't have to worry if this person or that person is talking behind my back like I worried about at my last job. TOO. MUCH. DRAMA!

Trudy said...

Hmm...that's a tough one, I guess the favorite thing about my job is that I will be getting 3 months off next May, LOL!

Hope your days gets better.

Josh, Steph, The Boys and Maddie said...

LOL! I can always count on your blog for a good laugh in the morning! I remember those CC days... but thankfully I no longer have those days... I worked in an accounting office doing bookeeping before I had kids.

You can be my neighbor!! I would love it... in fact the house next door is empty and vacant. They got evicted for growing marijuana about 6 months ago!! :D

That is the kind of neighborhood I live in... maybe you don't want to be my neighbor!

angie said...

I don't usually get CC'd anything b/c I don't work......but I have to agree. Annoying. Hope your bed rights itself tonight. :)

Alicia said...

LOL, I have to admit that I delete most "forwards." I don't even read them most of the time.

My favorite thing about my job?

Being able to be with my kids 24/7!

jennykate77 said...

Well, I would like to say that it's all puppy dogs and rainbows around my office, but the truth is that if drama was vodka, we would all be plastered (i got that off of a piece of flair). It's crazy around here. BUT if I would have to say one good thing, it's that....ummmmm....ok, I know there's something...

Ok, for serious, there may be a lot of drama, but it's a laid back office, we don't have scheduled lunch hours, I can wear jeans or zebra striped boots and no one even bats an eye, and I have the freedom to decorate my office with Twilight stuff (that's the best one). :)

Elizabeth Patch said...

thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I can' stand when I get those cold work emails, of course cc'd to everybody in the chain of command! oh well, I guess its just another part of modern life...

RR Mama said...

Hate it when I wake up on the wrong side of the bed! Hope your day gets better.

Mental P Mama said...

Lopsided beds can be fun, too;) And the cc's and reply all's are gonna kill me....

Monkey's Mama said...

I used to work next to a guy who would IM me - we SHARED a desk! And thanks for stopping by my blog :) Kaishon is gorgeous!

Mighty M said...

That is so funny, I guess the more you CC: the more important the memo! I especially love when people start replying to said memo and they hit "reply all" and there are all these little conversations going on that you have no interest in reading about and you keep getting the darn emails!!

Unknown Mami said...

Yup, that kind of stuff sucks. Lame.

Libby said...

Thats no fun...

I have a new blog too!!

mama of two said...

thanks for the compliment! =]

blueviolet said...

I didn't even know you worked!

Liz said...

That really doesn't happen at my job but I understand your frustrations. It happens a lot at my husband's job. The thing I like most about my job.... working by myself!

Queenie Jeannie said...

I'm laughing WITH you............

Live.Love.Eat said...

Oh my gosh, you are so funny. But I do understand what you mean about the cc'ing. Some people just have no email etiquette. At this day in age, they should have a memo in everyone's hire packet about proper use. What i don't like is when they do cc and should BUT someone replies and leaves every one off the cc.

I love my job because it's less than a mile from home :)

Grandma J said...

It's not nearly as annoying if people would just use the BCC instead.

Ms. Latina said...

I totally understand re: cc, not sure I like BCs any better either!

Drew said...

After your return trip from Dallas, I don't think you need any more hassle. Hopefully no more CC'ing in your future. :) I hate CCs too!

mimi said...

Best thing about my job...that I get to wear my pj's all day ;)
