Today has to be one of the worse on record for work - not the fault of the job, just of other people cocking things up, and butting in! Me and Andrea are both pissed off!
Poor Andrea has spent HOURS trawling through web sites for Glenn, looking for new disply cabinets for the new shop, following his instructions. Then he changed his mind. So she spent another few hours doing the same again. Then Glenn went back to the first people, and asked them to make them to spec. THEN Clie calls, and says that he has bought the wood to build the cabinets that Glenn asked him to build. Glenn had forgotten all about asking Clive to build them!
Much growling later, Glenn cancels the order with the web people, and Clive is (thankfully) making them - so long as he doesn't change his mind AGAIN
Meantime, "uncle Neil" comes into the office - gets in the way, stinks the place out, follows me around and perves down my shirt!
I desided that today would be a good day to find out which of the games we should have listed on eBay actually ARE on eBay. 217 games are stacked as though listed - AND AREN'T! Thank you EVER SO MUCH GEMMA! Seems the girl has been doing NOTHING the whole time she was at the office!
In fact I have come to the conclusion that - since you don't do this kind of shit to your mates - I must fall under the "not my friends, but Mark's friends" catagory for Gemma, like every one else we know! I wont be so quick to defend her to our other friends in future. They obviously knew her better! I should have paid more attention to the worried looks they all exchanged when I said I was going to get her the job.
Basically, I am TOTALLY pissed off! And because I had to spend the whole of this afternoon ctaching up with listings, and I have to spend ALL OF TOMORROW doing the same, I have got behind on the system maintanence and the building up of the web site. It's screwed up the whole of my week and most of next week too.
And what's more - I have to train a new assistant on Monday, who wont be staying anyway - so what's the point!!!!!
