One week later...

Has it only been a week since leaving Las Vegas? Gods, where does the time go? I know, I know, it just flies by just like deadlines.

Work has turned into an interesting series of comitragedies. Or is that tragicomedies? Either way, the chief character in this is my so-called cow-orker. Before leaving I told him if he needed help to ask the other techs to help. Instead I get a wave and a 'I'll handle it'. This is followed by the Monday meeting when he makes it clear he's glad that I'm not around. That's when the proverbial sh*t started to hit. I come back, and find out that he's made a mess of nearly every deployment and job he was supposed to do, so I get cracking. By Wednesday everything is caught up and we're running fine... at least, I am. He's still lost without a roadmap, and to make matters worse, decides to blow off several tasks assigned to him because 'they're not challenging'.

Can we say knitting lots and lots of rope to hang himself with, boyz and grrlz?

Ah well. At least I know that folks were happy to see me back at work, and that it's nice to know that yes, you really DO matter there. *chuckle*


Meanwhile, I'm still considering the blackjack tournament in September. Mind you, it's just considering. I have to move at the end of the month, it looks like I'll be getting an apartment finalized by the end of this week, and between what I already have in the bank, my next paycheck and the bonus of 5 shares of stock (which were sold) I'll have plenty of money for the move, the utility deposits and any furniture I might want to get. This doesn't count what's in the pocket right now, btw... *chuckle*

Such is life.

Wathing folks self destruct is always more fun than putting the effort in personally.
