Aggh!



The morning started so promising. Jonathan slept too long to get me coffee, but I figured I'd get some at the office and I got to work a couple minutes late using the bus and the subway route I normally do. Late is never a problem plus neither boss was there.

And then things started. A lawyer called. He's waiting for financials for a property - things sent out yesterday via an overnight courier. He didn't get them; neither did *his* lawyer.

I got the numbers and tracked his using an automated system, which said the package had been delivered without a signature. I told him this and he blew up. Because, you know. My fault,and the fault of this agency, that the courier delivered it to the wrong place.

I go to the courier's website (which I should have done in the first place) and plugged in the tracking numbers. *His* lawyer's package had been delivered, which I confirmed by calling that office. The other? Had been delivered to a general office building mailroom and actually signed for.

Now, the thing to do would be to call the general office mailroom, right? "Do you have a *Courier Company* envelope addressed to so and so?" I mean, it can't be the first time this sort of thing has happened, right?

No. The thing to do is harass us. Right now, on my desk, is a new courier envelope with his company name on it prominently and the information he requested. But in between he calls again.

I did nothing wrong. It was very hard not to yell back. I did.

And then.

Remember the bus and train I took this morning? I shouldn't have. What I should have done was take my rental car to the rental agency and taken a subway from there. It's still sitting on my block. On the wrong side of the street. The rental agency called. Now it's also getting a ticket, too. I'll return it tomorrow morning - they'll close before I get home from work. Jonathan stayed home but he doesn't drive, and the key is in my purse anyway.

The day must get better.

On a different note: I am not going to try to catch up on my flist. If anything noteworthy happened since Thursday, tell me. Thank you.

This is why attorneys pay their secretaries the big bucks. It's not enough for me to go back to it, but it did pay for a doctorate so I suppose it was worth it.

What qualifies as noteworthy? I'm getting published again. That's noteworthy to me, at least.

Mazel tov! That's very noteworty. :)

And if he paid me big bucks, that would be okay.

I'm an underpaid receptionist for a real estate agency.

I wrote something about you in my LJ.
Does that count?
