Single Status Update
**Two Weeks Ago**
Manager: Hey, would you mind driving 2,200 devices in a box truck down to (location 13 hours away)
Me: Sure, I guess. But every time we have done deliveries to that location, we have had to unbox and rescan everything at the last minute, because someone fucked up scanning and boxing things up. Can we make sure that doesn't happen this time?
Manager: I'm aware of that issue, and will take steps to prevent it from happening again.
**Tonight at 5pm**
Manager: *angry because numbers are off and we have to break down and rescan everything*
Then by 6pm we got done counting and whatnot, and the manager realized his math had just been off.
Meanwhile, I'm *FUCKING EXHAUSTED* because I had to throw away an entire box trucks worth of trash, by hand, then wrap 4 pallets of units, take them to the laser etching place, wrap the pallets of units they'd already done, switch the completed pallets for the uncompleted pallets, then after lunch had to wrap and band the 8 or so pallets of devices that were going to the place 13 hours away.
Me right now:
I don't mind working for that manager, he rarely fucks things up. Usually he's the guy we call to fix anything, he's actually our sysadmin but he's filling in for everything else for the last month or so because we have been absolutely slammed and my actual boss quit without notice over stress related health concerns.
