I Have A Problem

So yesterday, I went into work with the attitude of, Ok, just start doing stuff.

I had a couple of items that I knew I needed to check on to make sure everything was in order or else it would be a slight problem, and then I just followed the day with doing things as they came up, as I stumbled across them, or as I was asked.

All the while, I was checking and noting other things.

One of my bosses jumped on that bandwagon and came by my office several times throughout the day to say, add this to your list.

My other boss had given me a list up front.

We get off at noon on Fridays until December 1st.

At one point during the day I was so in the groove that I was thinking about staying late on Friday, if my former employer did not need my help, to get some stuff done after hours.

That’s how in the zone I get, and that is when I realized that I have a problem! hahaha

It turns out that my former employer does not need my help (woo hoo!).

I also had a moment of clarity and will not be staying late on Friday because….(a) it will still be there on Monday and I’ve got time, and (b) I’ve got my own stuff to do.

I am very fortunate that the receptionist is very eager to help in any way she is able.

She’s new to the firm so we are both going through a learning curve, her learning and me remembering.

I keep assuring her, because she keeps asking, that once I have a better understanding of what I am working with, there will be plenty of things for her to do.

That one list my boss is creating by remembrance….oh yeah let’s do this and oh yeah let’s do that….that list so has both of our names all over it.

I have seen resentment briefly flash upon her face a couple of times, and I get it, because I used to have her job.

But pretty soon, with a little bit of luck and a whole lot of understanding, we are going to be like two peas in a pod and working together to keep the admin part of this train going.

And soon enough, after she learns just how anal and organized and hard-working I am, she will be dreaming about those days when she had a little bit of free time on her hands.

After all, I have a problem, and I am trying to pass it on.
