The nice thing about when all four phone lines for the office are in use is that I don't have to answer the phone because nobody else can freakin' call.
It's been stupid busy today and everyone's grumpy. I snapped at an architect when he tried to get me to send a list I didn't have to someone who didn't need it, so that he wouldn't have to talk to someone who was calling. I paid for it by having the relationship between developer, contractor, subcontractor and supplier explained to me in more detail than I needed, twice, while my protestations of not having the list fell on deaf ears. I informed an architect who was busy marking up drawings that he had a phone call which he didn't want, to which he testily replied that he couldn't hear me anyway. When I left for lunch I was in the process of making a fax form and thinking to myself that I should start printing out a stack of specifications. With 22 minutes to go before I leave for the day, the form is still incomplete and I haven't so much as opened the specification file.
And somebody just called in the middle of that sentence. And I've got someone's strange and unprofessional version of a resume sitting on my desk while I try to figure out what I should do with it. If the universe is being evil to me of its own volition, I owe it some return evil and should throw the resume away. If I'm paying off a debt of evil left over from something else, I should pass it along to the head of the office, giving the guy a fighting chance and hoping like hell that my good deed comes back to me.
If it's pretentious and self-indulgent, is it still evil of me to throw it out? Please help.Posted by dianna at June 1, 2004 04:17 PM
