Add any adjective for angry as all hell here.
Why? You might ask?
Because I've got some lazy-assed managers who think that when my manager goes on vacation, they can come out of the woodwork, and use and abuse me to take care of their petty problems.
Case in point:
We've got some managers who have to drift from one desk to another during the week. Because of this, I have a special program I have to give each "travelling" manager so that they can have access to their email. However, this program doesn't give them access to the network site we have for some automatically generated reports and such that managers need for their End of Day reports.
Well, I've got a manager who is now telling me (once my manager left for vacation) that she needs me to install access for one of my "travelling" managers for emails at her location.
Because she doesn't like that she has to take an extra 10 minutes out of her day to print out the End of Day reports, when she could pawn it off on the "travelling" manager, and give her some extra time to BS and sip tea with other management staff.
And here I thought _I_ was the lazy buttwipe.
Not only that, but once I called her on it, she proceeded to try to rub it in my face that _She's_ the one with the authority, and _I'm_ just the peon to do exactly what she tells me to do.
Um, if there's anything that gets my anger up faster, it's someone telling me how to do my job when they know that I'll get my butt handed to me when it comes out that I've bent or broken a company rule.
This is one of those times.
So I did what any sneaky under-handed vengeful bastard in my position would do.
I copied all of the nasty emails, and forwarded them to my corporate advisors.
These are the folks who set policy for our company, and are the ones who informed me of how I was supposed to handle this situation a couple of months back, before my manager went on vacation. In it, they gave me specific instructions, and then told me to NOT deviate from this plan.
So, since the goddess decided to dictate her terms to me, I forwarded them on to others who would be interested in her actions.
I'm not sure what the end result is going to be, but I know for a fact that CYA is going to apply to me for a couple of years at least..
Or maybe only as long as this queen "b" manager lasts..
Time will tell.
Now, I'l going to head over and make some noise like I'm getting stuff done, but really just blow smoke up her butt until I get an answer from my advisors.
You all have a good day.
If you see a news entry about an IT guy who went postal on some management in the workplace.. That'll be me!
