Remember way back when I wrote about 13 meetings in one week? Since then, we’ve had a few of those high-level video teleconferences (VTCs). We had one this morning at 0830 (that’s 8:30 a.m. for you civilians). It takes about 1/2 hour to set up the VTC. At 8:25, there still wasn’t anyone at work who could set up the VTC. I really tried to let it go, but God, I was pissed. So much so, I’m thinking of taking the rest of the week off. (I have a couple of doctors’ appointments, so perhaps that’s not such a bad idea.)
Then, just a bit ago, four people were standing in my space having a conversation (that didn’t include me). And three of these people have individual offices! Why couldn’t they meet in one of those offices? They’ve departed now, but it just reinforces my discontent.
I’m trying to figure out how I can last another 3 years in this job. I’m feeling like I’m too old (and too good) to be in the environment I’m in, stuck in a freakin’ cubicle. I suppose I could look for a new job, even a promotion, but I’m not sure I want all that responsibility. Too bad I’m such a big under-achiever.
