At the moment we are all working very hard at the office. Long hours, long days - right up against it. As always there are those who step up and those who hide away. This week we have been hit by a flu bug and half the staff are at home sick. My job is running and staffing in-house events, and this week I don't have the usual team to help. Our company income right now depends on these events and they are paramount. Trying to get people to step up and help out is a BLOODY NIGHTMARE. I am not the most patient or diplomatic of people and right now if I had my way I would walk into the office with an Ouzi 9mm and shoot the bloody lot of them. Everyone who works for us has had a really great time for the last 4 years. We have all made plenty of money and had a good drink. Right now it shouldn't be about what the company can do for us - but rather what we can do for the company. Some people, however - just don't see things that way , and for them it's all about 'me, me, me'. The fact that this still surprises me, surprises me! So hence the title - my job right now is a little like plaiting fog.....difficult, if not sometimes impossible. Every day I have to have heated debates with sales people - trying to persuade them to give up their precious evenings off (only 1 each week) to come in and help out.
I think I will turn to drink, or go and do charity work overseas, or maybe join a circus. (Note - regular readers - please feel free to comment on what you think my job could be in a circus!)
