This manager work no easy!!!

While i am grateful for my current job especially as it is somewhat better than staying home all day... the many things my eyes have seen i just must pencil down.

There is certainly a WIDE gap between a one man business and a multi national.

Our Operations manager is Ijebu by tribe and worked as a teacher before now. he has some really amusing theories about how things should run.....

For example : the toner for the printer must completely run out before another can be purchased. i find that absurd and certainly not the way to go. He accused me the other day of not being responsible for the maintenance of the pool car.... hello... i am not in admin and barely use the car anyway. I use my own car for marketing purposes. as if that is not bad enough i have to sign papers up and down the place before i get a refund on my fuel money....

The height for me is the lastest development. i have worked for seven months thereabouts and no one assigned me a laptop/computer. I used mine until it crashed.... several memos and lamentations later, my dear boss approves ONE for the marketing unit in addition to the laptop we currently have....

One as in ONE for we the three unit members. he claims it is a work station technically this means the three of us have to take turns to use it. we have two chairs on this table. so one person stands while the other two sit!!!!

And they say i am a management staff....

I shudder to imagine what the other normal staff must be experiencing.... mcsheeewwwwww

Picking up the pieces It may not completely make sense but I want to document this phase I passed through Sometimes life decides to hand...
