tuesday, my blood pressure was a little high. that's unusual for me. it is usually low. this would have nothing to do with the fact that we have two staff training days this week, we will be using a new system at the end of the month, our current system is dying everyday night around the delivery and the busiest time of the day or that we have no contract inspite of what a town administrator was quoted as saying in the paper. our director is also pushing for us to work 35 hours a week instead of 32...it has been that way since time immemorial. i bet she will push for that, but then we would push for more sick time and persoanl time and she won't give us that. three more hours a week does not seem like much, but if i take my three weeks of vacation, that would be nine extra hour used for vacation time.
i think it should be written in the contract that she should get off her ass and actually do some work. and the circ staff are NOT her secretaries. she has one. i swear, if she tells me to 'take a message' one more time because she does not want to talk to somebody (vendors, mostly) i will throw the phone at her.
