This isn’t a real post. I apologize in advance, but I’m in a rather grumbly mood. Part of the job that I’ve come to loathe involves a late night every month. The lateness of the night is contingent upon the number of submissions that come in for a specific meeting, and normally we cut them off at a certain number. This meeting, however, the powers that be decided to forego that logic and cram as much crap as possible onto the meeting’s agenda.
What is also irritating is that the items that were crammed on are not things that can be dealt with quickly and efficiently. Due to the nature of work that I do, each one will require a rather lengthy and tedious process in order to get through them. This makes me doubly irritated.
Of course, the meeting is scheduled for 5:00 p.m., and will go long into the night. My son will be asleep long before I arrive home, having been up since around 4:30 this morning. I will be exhausted, not to mention really crabby. I’ve tried to think of anything I can to get out of it, but several people have already cancelled out and each person attending now is required to be there in order to have enough people to vote.
There’s few things on this earth that piss me off more than unavoidable tedium during what is rightfully my time. I pretty much hate everything right now.
