This is going to be pretty long and whiny. Really I suggest you don't bother looking at it, especially as, if you're reading it, you've probably heard me whine in person. So I'm going to stick it all under an .

As you probably know I've been getting more and more dumped on me at work. Now I'm pretty much doing all of Creepy Guy's job as well as my own and doing ISO Management Rep work. My boss promised me that in September that he'd start having me train Lab Guy on my job. Lab Guy would take over a lot of my stuff...up to 80% he said, so that I could do a good job on the ISO stuff.

But then our plant manager quit, and Lab Guy got promoted to Asst Production Manager instead along with my friend Chris the Arc Welding Line Leader. So no help for the Ann. And there's no one left to promote into a position to help me out. I found that out on a Monday night, and was upset, so I went ahead and posted my resume on Monster.

I really didn't think anything would come of it.
But by Tuesday night I had 6 e-mails and 3 phone calls.

Then I talked to my boss at work, and he told me that they were planning to promote me to Asst. QC Manager. And I talked to HR and they told me that they were revising our pay come January. The President was worried about all the people leaving and decided to pay us slightly better than the regional average. He's having HR research what everyone ought to be making now. I told him that my resarch says that I'm getting underpaid by about $10,000 a year. He said that that's what his research was showing too.

So I decided to mostly back off of the search for now, and wait and see what happens in Jaauary, whether they live up to their promises or not. Yesterday Nakaya told me to make sure that I keep coming in on time, and not to ever, ever be late. Punctuality is important in Japan, and if I'm late at all he'll have a harder time justifying the big reward he wants to give me.

I just don't know what to do. These are all good things, but I'm just so buried at work. I actually ran out of room in my dayplanner for my daily tasks yesterday. and I have a '1 day =2 pages' type planner.

I'm sorry you're doing the work of nine. I hope things get better very soon.

Today's going a little better. I'm getting some stuff crossed off the list at least. I'm just a little weirded out by this whole "just don't be late at all this year!" thing. Who knew that that was the only key thing to do? I think I'll spend the rest of the day slacking off.

P.S. Hug!? Hug!?!? Oh right, like offering that kind of comfort is at all comforting. I know you're a friend of mine. If you're just going to say something affectionate, well that's just like.....telling me a safety statistic or something to ease fear. Heard it before! Hello! ;-)

Seriously, you've got to be sick of hearing me whine. You totally don't have to read posts like this. Just tell me to shut up.

You are the best thing ever. I'm rather surprised about the punctuality comment, as from what I know, you're never late anyway.

And it's not whining when they're trying to bury you in the Great Pyramid of Crap. Although it does sound like you're negotating fairly well, and learning new skills and all that good stuff.
