Overworked (and Underpaid?)

I've been extremely busy these past couple of weeks at work that I've hardly had time to blog. Our entire accounting department quit last week (yes, both of them) without any notice and I've had to pick up the slack. It's been extremely frustrating since we're using a new accounting software (which is so not user-friendly) and I've been out of the loop on anything remotely connected to the accounting department. We've hired a temp to help us in the interim but he doesn't know the software either. I've had to "train" him and it's like the blind leading the blind.

On top of all that, I still have to do my work. I hope they don't ask me to come in this weekend. I've had the sniffles for a while and my boss practically shoved Airborne down my throat so I wouldn't get sick. I'm not "allowed" to call in sick in the next few weeks until the accounting department is up and running. Isn't life great? I hope they remember all this when bonus time comes around.

Hi Debby,

Yes, hard work but it's also the time to shine! Eh, I'm just looking at the bright side. :) I'm sure you'll do well.
