Don't Have To Drink About It

Briefly, I didn't get the promotion. I was disciplined for staying late to fix a major problem with the printer. I basically feel unappreciated. I really want to find a meeting.

However, I must run because something good has happened: My protein levels have risen high enough for me to donate at City Plasma!

So, all have a safe and happy Halloween. I, on the other hand, am going out tonight to capture party animals in costume. I know it’s neither safe nor sane, but I really missed St. Patrick’s Day with my camera.

Without Wax,

Sometimes work is like "Whack a mole" you stick your head up and it gets whacked.

I would guess that fixing a printer is an IT problem. So staying late to fix someone else's problem does not always sit well with your manager that has to account for your hours and not IT hours. In other words his budget takes a hit and IT's budget gets a free ride.

Perhaps it is just best to show up do your job and leave and not try to stand out until you have some more time in and are in a better place in life.

Sorry to hear you did not get the promotion. Think of it as a numbers game.. like going to bat at baseball just keep trying until you hit a home run. No one scores 100%
