I get my desk/work area today. I'm hoping this heralds an end to the sniping. I'll take a picture when it's set up the way I want.

And it will be done the way I want. (when your co-workers say to you about your manager 'where did -that- come from?', you know that things are in melt down stage).

Oh, and No! I will not be putting line items and time spent on every thing I do on a white board you're opposed to having anyway. That's what Project Management software is designed to give you. Just because you don't want to learn how to use it does not mean you get to come up with inane time consuming tasks. Or I WILL put on the board "went to piss."

Our company bigwigs aren't just opposed to LEARNING PM software, they're opposed to ACQUIRING PM software.

Which means my manager makes me write on his whiteboard, and HIS manager makes us update an Excel file. :p PM in Excel is a Hell comparable to project proposals in PowerPoint.

I grumble that these programs are called a "toolkit" for a reason, and that reason is so that a certain sort of person will think of their toolkit at home are realize a screwdriver is not a hammer, except when you're too lazy to get the toolkit and you've got the screwdriver in your hand already.

i think you should document EVERYTHING you do, for a day or two.

- went potty (just #1)
- washed hands
- blew nose
- coded some web stuff
- listened to insecure boss try to terrorize me
- drank three sips of tea

she'll LOVE it!

okay maybe not.

i have a sorta opposite situation - i have staffers that won't learn new things, but i'm the boss that *wants* them to try out the technology and other gadgets may help in the long run. i think part of it is generational, and part of it is the fear of change. maybe N thinks you want her job? (not that you wouldn't rock socks at it...)
