So Jeremy comes in and tells me he needs me to get him these papers and he needs them by tonight because he promised the Vice President of the company. First of all, I don’t think we even have any of these papers, and even if we do, they’re certainly not in the building. If they even exist, they’re all at the off-site storage place and it would take at least a day to order them and have them delivered. That’s after I spend untold hours sifting through pdfs on my computer to even find these stupid things. Because he needs the originals, so I can’t print a copy for him. Second of all, I had several teetering piles of work that I had to get done because they sent us yesterday’s work today so we’re a day behind, plus we have to do today’s work too. And Mondays and Tuesdays are always our busy days anyway. And THIRD of all, I was ON BREAK when he told me this so I didn’t even get to finish the cute picture of Newt Scamander and Tina Goldstein I was trying to color.
So, no, I didn’t get him those papers and if Mr. Vice President is unhappy, Jeremy can explain to him why he waited until the last minute and made my work even later than it already was so I could waste time looking for something that doesn’t exist.
End of rant. Pretend there’s a cute picture of Newt and Tina here.
