Vent!!!!! Arg (ot)

so i am having a really bad day! i have 2 choices right now: 1) vent here to you nice ladies who understand or 2) scream like crazy to all the work people i am surrounded by! i obviously have chosen the first option!

Ok, so i get here at 6:45 am thismorning cause DH and i carpooled. so i do my bsing online to kill time and the phone rings at 8:15. i tell my coworker that i am not on the clock yet so he answers the call. here 14 brandy new laptops got delivered by stupid UPS to the wrong building number. so the guy the works at the building where the equipment is called us up and snapped off an ignorant attitude with my coworker cause neither one of us can go down there to pick it up. the guy hangs up on my coworker before we could get any more info. so pissed off cause the guy was ignorant i clock in 10 minutes early and spend the next 20 minutes trying to find out the name or phone number or buidling number of where my equipment is!!!!! all i had was 3 initials that meant nothing to me. (i work on a military instillation, though we are not associated wit the military). so after making a bunch of calls and getting transferred i finally out where it was and the number to call. now, let me say that these laptops are in big ole boxes that i technically should NOT be carrying (atleast not 14 of them). so i get down with oneo f our volunteers who showed up as i heading down there. i walk straight bac to the guy who worked there, confirmed that he was the one who called and got ignorant wiht my coworker and politely told him that the way he spoke to my coworker was inappropriate and that he upset him and that i am 9 months pregnant and the coworker is around 70 and that all we asked for was a little bit of cooperation to resolve the situation. he didnt have to be rude to us. he looked at me and said "well that is how i operate"!!!! :eek: i turned on my heel and stormed off, got the equipment and somehow managed to NOT snap off on this prick! fine, move on.

i get a call about 15 minutes later from someone else telling me to do something that is complete opposite from what i was told to do by my boss. i ended that conversation with an attitudy "you need to take that up with the boss". now this person thinks he is my boss and that i work for him. he pisses everyone off and is completely out of line. he is constantly thinking i am here for hIM, well i think NOT. needless to to say he pissed me off, strike 2, fine move on.

So THEN we have a member here who is supposed to be doing work that i have been doing for years, we are transitioning him to do the work cause i technically am not allowed to do it. THIS MONTH is the last month that he had to get it down pat without any help. this guy was brought in under the understanding the he had computer skills...well let me tell you what, after 7 freaking months this guy STILL cant turn on the stupid laptop!!! just this morning, he couldnt figure out how to get on internet explorer!!!!!! SERIOUSLY!!! after 7 months you cant get on a website! and yet i have to trust this guy to do a HUGE part of my job while im on maternity leave?? but instead of asking for help, he sits in the office hemming and hawing for an HOUR. i ignore him in the hopes that he will, oh i dont know, FIGURE IT OUT ON HIS OWN! nope, after 7 months he can get past the log in screen that has no password! so for the miillionth time i remind him there is no passwork, click next, next and finish! then 10 minutes later i have to show him how to get on IE for the millionth time!

THEN this OTHER guy who is supposed to head up the logistical department that i work with is looking for a SN on a piece of equipment and take 10 minutes and has no clue where the serial numer is! OMG!!!!!!!!!! so i had to waddle my pregnant 9 month *ss to hwere he was to show him the serial number.

i havent slept in like 4 nite, i am HUNGARY, i am already pissed off, i am cramping like crazy, i am in pain and i just dont have any GD room for stupidity!!!!!!!!!!!! :violent2: :bigangry::angry5::argh:

ok, thanks for letting me vent. i am off to get something to eat, maybe food will take away my serious need to scream and cry at the same time!

OMG what a yucky sounding day! That guy should have helped bring the boxes up, you shouldn't be lifting them!!!!

Sorry about the guy who can't figure out a laptop, though I did have to laugh, I mean, Heather, who is 3 1/2 knows how to turn mine off and on, and if let, she could probably open up IE or Firefox! How can people seriously be so stupid, and after doing it for 7 months? sheesh. I woulda took the laptop and hit him over the head with it lol!

Hope your day goes better. Relax and take it easy! I know the end is VERY close for you, but keep baby girl in there just a bit more! :openarms:

:bigarmhug: I am so sorry. It is so frustrating to deal with incompetent people! Obviously everyone makes mistakes or has a moment when they need help, but that just sounds ridiculous! I hope your day gets better!

If u lived closer I'd.think.u hired my ex for the job. I had showed him who knows how many times the same.stuff , how to log on, get on the internet etc. He never remembered I just got so mad I quit showing him. The one job he actually applied for he had to take a basic computer knowledge test and guess what, big surprise he didn't pass! So no job...and I wonder why I'm now single. Lol...one more week to go just keep.saying that.

have a pic of your ex?? LOL sounds like him, cept this guy told the powers that be that he has computer skills. i shouldnt be so harsh, he is a volunteer, however, you need competent people to do the many different jobs to make this organization run. i can understand people needing to be taught, fine, but after 7 months.....oy vey!

but your right, 36 weeks today!!!!! one more week...
