Colors by Llarowe Black Gold, Texas Tea

You're going to see that I've been on a Colors by Llarowe kick for the next few posts.  At least three-I haven't decided what to wear the day I'm writing this.

Some work updates.

I got to work this past Monday to an email from my back hurts coworker stating that she has decided to now work only half days for at least the next two weeks.  Remember, she has a two week Hawaii vacation coming up in August.

What gets me is the fact that the previous Friday, she could have mentioned this to me.  My cube is five feet from her.  It pissed me off really.  It was addressed to all the MDs she works with and the boss, myself and the other coworker.

I simply replied, "who's covering you?" As the boss is totally going to assume me and the other will cover her like we are to in August.  I figure if you ain't gonna discuss this with me like an adult and via email, I will reply the same way.

Her reply was that she didn't need formal coverage, that she would be there during the middle of the day.  Uh huh.  I wonder if she even talked to the boss about this first?

We share tight quarters and to me, it just is teamwork or etiquette to give your coworker a heads up saying something like, my back really hurts and I need to get better.  I've decided to do this and I don't need you to cover for me.  What I got was a mass email after the fact.

Am I wrong to be pissed about this?

The other thing was, my boss emailing me saying I hadn't done my self evaluation that was due in April and I had to do it by Friday.  I wrote her back stating I was told that I wasn't getting an evaluation this year so I didn't fill it out.

My boss has her mind made up about me and nothing I've done has changed her mind.  I originally just answered all the questions as "fully meets" because it's the middle of the road and you don't have to comment justifying your answer.

I left it for a while and went back to it later and decided to say what I felt needed to be said and that's that I bust my ass and here are the examples.  I don't expect it to have any impact and now I dread the face to face with her as I know it's just going to upset me.

It is what it is.

Now today we have perhaps the most gorgeous black holo ever.  Black Gold, Texas Tea.

I want to say that when I wrote my last post, the France attack had not happened yet.  I want my French readers to know my heart goes out to you and your country.  I am so sorry for what has happened there.

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
