Impatience! ARRRGH!

So I’m working on this career site for some stupid client that’s due today. Then I get asked if I’ve finished one that’s due Tuesday. …so (as I had planned to do anyway) I go and do that after I finish the one due today. As I’m about to finish that, I get asked why I haven’t QA’d Susie’s work that she asked me to check before lunch. (“Uh…because you keep asking when these things are going to get done, so I’m doing them.”) So I drop everything and go do that QA and in the middle of that I get asked about the other stuff again.

Anyway, I think I’m caught up. The stuff I sent off to be QA’d is probably all messed up. It’s the first career site I’ve done myself and they’re not being too forgiving about that. …and now (as I write this) I’m getting e-mailed flack (with the department head CC’d) about getting it done ON the due date. Man, if they wanted it done earlier, why don’t they tell me the date they want me to have it done? It makes no sense.

…and my day’s not over yet. I’m sure I haven’t heard the last of this. Ugh. I just want to go home.

Epilogue: Yep, I got a talking to. I apologized and told her I’d try not to let it happen again.
