Pulling my hair out!

Without going into too much detail - I'm ready to SCREAM.

 - last night - during dinner - I receive a text from boss informing me I need to read an urgent email.  Really?  I'm having DINNER with my FAMILY right now.

 - this morning I'm informed that a group of us are required to attend something (online).  I attend - I'm the only one here from the group.  Boss says - we don't expect there to be a lot of traffic - just let us know if anyone (clients) show up.  What???  We're ALL supposed to staff this, but because I'm the ONLY one that showed - I have to stay and let you know if you're needed?!!!?  That was NOT the plan

 - Dates for a big project apparently changed - in a meeting without me - and no one bothered to tell me - so now I look like an idiot for giving others the wrong dates.

Let the hair pulling COMMENCE.

Yikes! Sounds like the boss needs to start communicating more effectively.  Sorry you are dealing with this.

I am having an I want to lay down kicking and screaming kind of day as well.  I need to get payroll done today before 5pm and am having a hard time trying to figure out these guys time cards.  I work with all males which isnt any better.  Then I go to pick up a vechile that is not there only to find out that someone else from my company went and picked it up.   Yeah me because I just wasted 15 mins. of my day.  Good thing I am out to lunch right now.  UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Of course when I get back I have a mountain of paperwork to do and end of the month billing as well.  Which I am sure wont be right either cause I dont have all the info I need.  Hang in there momma, hope your day gets better.

That would be so annoying. I think your manager needs to learn to communicate better so that everyone is on the same page

It sounds like your boss needs to work on his communication.

Your boss sounds like a moron.  I couldn't stay working there.
