A guy at work was fired. I don’t care he was fired as I hated him. No really – pure hatred. I do care because it means extra work for everyone else and we can’t get our stuff done to begin with.
But as we were given his mail to do (which is just as old as my mail and therefore I should be doing mine not his but whatever) I realized that what I want to do is be the clean up person. Just sit at a desk and straighten it up. Get the mail done, get the diary caught up, get the files organized, that type of stuff. No phones, no stressing on it. If there are fires then the file goes to someone to handle. I just do CLEANUP I suggested that several years ago when I was in a different department and was told no. I suggested that a few months ago and was told no.
I know what I would like to do, now to figure out how to make them say yes
