Rant time...

Rant 1
I have a particular member of staff who is really starting to hack me off. His attitude stinks and he is lazy. He dropped his passcard into the cup bin today, and then blankly refused to retrieve it. I ended up getting it for him, and I didn't even get a word of thanks. It's getting to the point now where I'm going to get really annoyed with him and sack him.

Rant 2
Have you ever been in a company where you feel that everything goes on around you, but you never seem to know about it? For example, three people left the company this week. The most in advance that I knew about them was 3 days. 3 days! Some of my people had known for a couple of weeks. This evening, nearly everyone is going to the pub after work (so I found out at about 5pm). When I pointed out that no-one had told me about the pub, suddenly 3 people started becoming friendly and inviting me down the pub. Call me unreasonable, but that really gets to me.

So here I am, feeling unpopular at work, with one of my staff bitching down my bloody neck.

What the hell am I supposed to do?

I posted yesterday that I wasn't sure whether I should be happy or not that my part of my department is transferring across... well now I've decided. I can't wait until I move to the Reading office.

At least people there don't have crappy attitudes.

Thanks for listening last night - it means a lot to me.

That guy's attitude really stinks - I feel that his days are definitely numbered!

The rest of them? Argh. You should work with my Dad - he seems to carry most of his department, because they take sick days off when there's nothing wrong with them, and he's had to wait until a fortnight's time to get his summer holiday because the rest of the lazy bums already booked their holiday well in advance (i.e. June). They make me really angry, because he looks really ill. How long until you transfer to Reading? Not too long I hope.

We're looking at 6 months at the earliest. I have two projects to finish first.

Sickness is another issue I have to deal with... I have another member of staff who is sick at least once a fortnight.

I really pick 'em, don't I?!

I can really relate to the nobody telling you anything at work thing - comminications where I work is almost non-existant at times & not much better at other times.

I was on site last week & the job would have been done in half the time if people had given us more information.
The general theme of non-communication in our place is the person that something concerns is often one of the last people to know about it.
It doesn't help that the MD is one of the worst offenders either.

Hope things go better for you at the Reading office!

Being further from 'near Maidenhead' must be a good thing :)

Our office in NY is laying off a load of staff. We only found out in London because one of the guys in New York told us. Our Head of Department didn't even know over here.
