Work is Crazy

Work is crazy and frustrating and super busy. I can't really say much about work on my blog for legal reasons, but I'm just not into blogging today because I am stressed about work.

I feel like I work super hard, bend over backwards to get things done correctly on time, and then I am told that my work is wrong for reasons that are beyond my control. The underlying problem is not me, but yet I get the flack for it.

My immediate boss is awesome. I get recognition for my work and she is always there to help and make sure I have the things I need to get my work done. But, I work with a lot of people and there is a lot of pressure to do things right, do it right the first time, and force other people to do their part/job even though I have no power to do so.

I'm just frustrated and burnt out. Just when I think I am done with a project, I'm told that my work is wrong and I have to redo it. I know that that is the way work is, but it doesn't make it suck less.

So, no fun posts on kids today. Maybe tomorrow will be a better day.

You need to start smacking people around. That'll get them to listen to you.

If your manager knows you feel this way maybe you and she could work together and let the higher ups know that it would be invaluable to have their direction on a project before it begins so that things can run as smoothly and quickly as possible.
