after a whole mess of missing in action, I'm back.
New financial year, new money not yet in the bank, old invoices all paid? and the budget has been zeroed and every budget line has a different number this year. Why?
Because the people in finance can. At least I don't know any other reason.
We've been short staffed, over worked and the acting senior librarian doesn't know what the hell he's doing. I'd complain about the incompitent git, except he is me. To make matters even more frantic the manager is going away for a few weeks and I get the top job.
Why do I get the added responcibility? My superior reasoning skills? My ability to balance the books? The ability to manage staffing issues? umm, no, it's because I'm the only one who wants to do it. "Sit back suckers and enjoy the ride. Don't complain about the government if you didn't vote!"
more to come.......
