Early last week I asked one of my ‘dumb operator’ questions in a meeting…
Got the usual Polish salutes, dunnos, that’s not a valid question, etc. After the meeting, the boss says set up a meeting at XYZ and lets find out what the right answer to your convoluted question is.
Off I go, trying to get that done. XYZ doesn’t want a cast of thousands, so I tell the boss, he gives me a list of people, and I go back and forth with XYZ and the list on available dates/times to have the meeting. After a couple of back and forths, the decision is to have the meeting this morning.
Except, I got an email yesterday evening, that due to limits on the space, I’m no longer invited to the meeting (this came from some admin type at XYZ).
Rilly, I mean RILLY???
So now I’m sitting in my office waiting for a phone call from my boss wondering why I’m NOT at the meeting to ask my convoluted question, and why I didn’t call him (betting he STILL hasn’t checked his voicemail for the message I left last night).
Should be all kinds of fun today… Can I retire yet???
Sigh… And it’s ONLY Wednesday…
