OH, my Gawd… people at work are driving me crazy. When I was looking for clip art of me losing my mind, this song popped up and I’m like- oh yeah, I remember that song…like that beat and chorus. It’s perfect for how I’m feeling!
For my regular readers: you know I’m preparing to take a LOA from my temp job to travel this summer. Friday is my last day for the summer. Being the good little worker I am…I’m trying to get everything in order and for a particular log to work smoothly while I’m on my LOA. There are certain things I’ve been solely coordinating, that we are now making a group thang. Well, if you have ever had experience with sharing a “log” –common spreadsheet with others, you know it DOESN’T WORK. People that should be updating their items, don’t. Someone makes an update to an area, and another undoes it…no one communicates. My favorites are when someone removes/or adds a column. It’s like when you send an e-mail request to a couple/few recipients and just generalize what you need… and you receive no response, but they all assume the “other” is taking care of said issue.
So I’ve been living and breathing in this spreadsheet that tracks our SCARs (Supplier Corrective Action Requests) where an engineer is following up with our suppliers to ensure they find the root cause of issue, and produce a corrective action plan, and effectivity date of when they expect to implement plan. We later perform verification of effectiveness to see if the Corrective Action worked… This log has a column for key elements to track and ensure we keep things on schedule without missing anything.
Sounds so simple, yet, when I gave individual e-mails to our engineers, listing the SCARs they needed to follow up on, pertaining to verifications… the shit hit the fan. No one… and I mean NO ONE wants to follow up on their crap or be responsible for tracking of things while I’m gone. Look, it doesn’t matter that Mexico issued the SCAR, your name is the name assigned to that supplier…YOU are responsible to following up with Mexico and supplier to ensure the administrative portion is complete should we be audited.
The new dude and I went back-n-forth, where he tried to tell me I was wrong… about a process I’m in charge of and have been for 2 years and the log has been the most organized it’s ever been. This dude has the gall to tell me I was changing process (no, that is his speciality), and if I didn’t understand the SCAR process, then I need have a meeting with him and the boss.
ARE YOU F’in kidding me? New boy who’s only been here 2 months. “Y’all gonna make me lose my mind, up in here, up in here…. Y’all gonna make me lose my cool, up in here, up in here.”
So, that was the first time I watched that video and it seems to be based on mistaken identity. I looked up the lyrics. I seriously can’t understand anything outside of the chorus. I think this is the funniest group of lines and so applicable, if my life were a rap star:
Nigga runnin’ his mouth, I’m a blow his lung out
Listen, yo’ ass is about to be missin’
You know who gon’ find you? (Who?) Some old man fishin’
