Can I just say how rude people are?! Seriously. I know people don't exactly KNOW I'm pregnant when talking to me on the phone (obviously), but how many times can people make an appointment to look at an apartment and then proceed to NOT show?!? After work yesterday, I had 4 appointments for one of our apartments. Its not far from work, probably 5 minutes or so, so I try and make them right after work so I don't have to drive the 25 mins home and then drive 25 mins back an hour and a half later. So, the first appointment was supposed to be at 4:15...of course 4:15 rolls around - nobody. Not unusual...they could have been running 5 minutes late - pretty reasonable. Well - after about 15 minutes, I called the woman and literally said: "Hi, this is Jamie. You were supposed to take a look at an apartment we have for rent at 4:15". Her: "What was the address?" - I was about halfway through the address and the call ended. I wasn't sure what happened...I have a stupid smart phone that is touch screen and sometimes my cheek hits the 'end call' button. So I called back to make sure I didn't hang up on her, and it ran twice and went to voicemail! So - she obviously hung up on me. And - to top it off, 2 other appointments never showed either! Out of 4, I had one actually come This is really nothing new, this happens pretty much all the time. I'm just so sick of wasting my time. I don't know how people can be so rude! They NEVER call and tell me they can't make it...I just sit around waiting and they never show. So, then I had to drive home in traffic since it was during rush hour.
Plus - on top of having to show these stupid apartments to people who may or may not show...I seriously HATE my job right now! I know its because I'm preggo, but I'm so sick of doing ALLLLLL the work ALLLLLLL the time! I worked on a piece of a project and got my piece working. Now, its in a different stage with a different person...well - they are having a couple issues and I'm back to working them out! Nobody helped me when I was working on my part...why is it that I have to help them? And this is the person that I asked a question of a couple months ago about how a certain process worked (to get a better understanding and make sure I wasn't missing any pieces) and was told (super snotty too) that "Well, if I'm going to explain it, I might as well just do it" Really?! Not even close. The code took a couple days for me to write - I HIGHLY doubt it would have taken a couple of days to explain the process. Everybody comes to me with their problems...instead of taking 2 minutes to look at the issue and troubleshoot - they come running over to me and I'm expected to drop what I'm doing. Soooooo over it. My boss keeps telling me he doesn't know what they're going to do while I'm out on leave. I want to tell him to just suck it up. Nobody helped me figure ANY of this stuff out...I get that we're in a collaborative (sp?) field and all...but at least TRY! Sheesh.
Ok - thanks for making it to the end if you got here.
