It's a good thing I'm already signed up for spinning this afternoon...I can tell I'm gonna have a LOT of stuff to work out on the indoor-cycle this afternoon.
It started with traffic, which was unbearable. I do hope and pray that those involved in the injury accident that bottled up the interstate and made a normal 30 to 40 minute drive to work morph into an hour and a half are OK and hopefully the only thing seriously damaged was the cars. You know, it's funny--as you sit there in traffic, you wish that people would just not give into the basic human instinct to stare and rubberneck at wreck on the Interstate...and then you actually realize what you want is for everyone else but YOU to ignore this instinct.
So, I finally get to work only to have people pinging me left and right. One guy needs a letter scanned and sent to him at his e-mail address. Funny thing is (not funny "ha-ha" but funny ironic) is that this is a person who I've had to go to for help on numerous occasions and he's always been "too busy" to help me. Now that the shoe is on the other foot, he's about to wet his pants to have this letter scanned and e-mailed to him. Which I'm happy to do...but you gotta give me a valid e-mail address to send it to, buddy.
Then, people want files burned to a CD and think I should give up some of my personal supply of CD-Roms for them...we have some that are for the office and are under lock and key under the person in charge of supplies gets in to work. Now, if it was one or two CDs, I'd be happy burn them and just take from the office supply later to replace them...but it's 10 or 20 copies and they want them in five minutes. Which I hate to tell them, ain't gonna happen that quickly nor do I have that many writeable CDs of my own personal stash.
I keep telling myself--the day is only going to get better..the day is only going to get better...
