Dear 2nd in command and big bossman

I suppose this isn't really a proper letter, it's more like a memo which is addressed like a letter...or something to that effect.

I do realise that you guys will only be getting this on Monday but i need HELP!!!!!!! You guys can't just decide to be sick or pack up and leave for the week and leave me in absolute control of everyone!!!!! I've only been doing this job for 2 and a half days! Where am I supposed to find everything and organize clients, and employees, disgruntled bookkeepers and the locksmith coming to fix our lock after the burglary...you didn't even bother to tell me he's coming...so if he's charging you a fortune unnecessarily Mr Bossman....its your own fault for not telling me he's coming and what exactly he's supposed to do.

*breathe in, breathe out, breathe in, breathe out, breath in, breathe out* OK, I'm fine now. I suppose I'm gonna have to start coping with this now......i am after all now a boss *giggle* and third in command of the company. I can do this...I know I can...you know I can. I suppose you wouldn't have given me the job and left me alone on my third day if you didn't think I could do it.

OK, never mind, crisis averted.

Regards

Ruby

SweetAss - problem is the minions are a bit pathetic, and of course i'm a control freak. I have this thing you know....if i'm not sure if someone can do something right...i'd rather just do it myself....i guess i'm gonna hafta start at some point though!

Sonny - Me? cook books?? never....we're a bloody chartered Accountant practise...filled with auditors...LOL

Suck it up biatch! Deal with it!

Tee hee ... why do I have the sneaky suspicion you are enjoying this?

Ruby said...

You can do anything Rubes! Just control your breathing, always helps :-)

I'm sure you'll do fine! Just think practically and remain calm.

Don't you hate the way that bosses neglect to mention something to you, act like they did and then complain because you can't read their mind?

Stupid annoying people.

I think you need a nice cup of tea Ruby. Remember, you're the boss.

You're fine. You know you're loving it anyway :)

Ruby said...

nats, miss M, Elise - much better today thanx!

You guys are the best! you know that?? all of you! Today I have had a blast, and i've turned into a real little Miss...LOL

Power suit, ensure everybody had work to do, sorted out more than my fair share or crisis, hauled the bookkeepers over the coals for not having stuff ready as scheduled, wrote a report on the total and utter inability of one of my slaves and attended very imported meeting in the place of boss who is doing...well, actually, i'm not sure what he's doing, but he's not here.

And yes.....i'm enjoying it!
