is it over yet?

I am in desperate need of lots of beer. Just load the truck up and start pouring it into me.

I just finished working with the most difficult person on the planet – you know, the one who’s always right and your opinions don’t matter – I’m sure his attitude was exacerbated by the fact that he was under the delusion that his deadline for providing content to me is midnight tonight (that’s my deadline for turning the course over). He seems to have forgotten he’s at least two weeks late getting his work to me …

And he got very offended when I told him this morning to make a decision, tell me what he wants me to do to the course, and let me do it.  I’m already on site revision (over 125 pages) number 3 and there’s no way this will be completed on time if he can’t make up his mind!  Apparently, my saying so was very rude.   How dare I have expectations of being treated like a professional and not wanting to be forced to work 20 hours of OT in one week to pull someone else’s ass out of the fire.  I’m pretty sure treatment like this had a hell of a lot to do with why I left my last job.

Thank the gawds for temp boss.  He’s perfectly willing to just let me rant (and move the mountains out of the way) when I need to.

Despite all my complaining, I’m sure it will be a nice course when it’s finished. Too bad it’s completely inaccessible for those who are hearing or visually impaired. Oh, and it’s got some digital divide issues … and no, I haven’t figured out why I’m the only one who seems to care about these items … yep, this is exactly why I left the previous job.  I’m shouting from the rooftops about issues that we at least need to be cognizant of and being brushed off or ignored.

I know, no one wants to hear me rant about work on a Friday. Thanks be for the blues!
