Part of the reason why I had such a rotten work day is that it's time to do the dreaded workplans again. I knew that it was coming up and have been trying to come up with something different than what I submitted last year. At 3:45 p.m., an email was sent out with the form that we are supposed to use for this process.
Our workplan is to include items that relate to the Organizational Goals and our Division goals. Did the email include a copy of the Organizational Goals??? No, it did not. However it did tell us that we'd have to get our Divisional Goals from our Sr. VP.
So, I went to my Sr. VP and asked for a copy of the Division Goals. Guess what?? They have not been finalized yet and won't be ready until maybe Tuesday or Wednesday. I just looked at my boss (who is the Sr. VP) and then turned around and walked out of his office before I opened my mouth and said something that I shouldn't. We are supposed to have our Individual Workplans completed by Wednesday!!!!!!!
Of course during the performance appraisal process in December, I was zinged on the fact that I didn't get most of my goals accomplished. But did I know in December 2007 that in June 2008 we would be getting a new computer system and that my program for doing part of my job would become obsolete??? So now I have to think of new ways of saying that my goal is to KEEP MY JOB!!!!!!
I was really ticked by the time I got to the parking garage. My mood lessened slightly when I found a note on my car from a coworker that read "Nanny, Nanny Boo Boo I left before you did!!" I'm always giving him a hard time because I generally leave before he does.
So when I received the card and magnet from Teresa T tonight, my mood improved greatly!!!!!
