And so it begins. Tuesday, I started training one of my co-workers to do my job. Not to replace me, or anything. Just so that when I want to have vacation – it’s not a problem. I’ve got one of those pesky highly important jobs – for some reason our vendors seem to get pissy when we don’t mail them their checks on time. Checks have to be mailed out every single day, so there’s got to be someone doing my job every single day. Oh what fun! As it stands right now, if I’m out sick or on vacation, one of my higher-ups (the one who is my unofficial boss) has to come in here and cover the position.
Since Tuesday and Thursday are “slow” check run days, we’re starting training off on those days. Today she’s supposed to get a whirl, trying to do it herself. She and I don’t get along a lot of the time, and she’s already rubbing me the wrong way. Tuesday was fine. Today? She disappeared. She knows we have the info to start the run – and just took off. Um, we’ve got to get this done and out the door, everything is to be sent FedEx today. About 30 minutes after the check run was ready, she showed up. Sigh. <sarcasm> This is going to be OH SO MUCH FUN!!! </sarcasm>
Of course, I’ve got to keep reminding myself that her learning this is a good thing. It means I get to take vacations without having to worry as much about who will fill in while I’m gone. If I repeat that to myself often enough… maybe it’ll make it bearable. Maybe.
