The House Always Wins

The House Wins from the album Oh No by OK Go

This weekend at work was one of those weekends.
It seemed like everything that could go wrong, did.
There were so many call-ins, I lost count.
We were slammed.
All of the managers (myself included) were feeling the pressure, the stress, the frazzle, the frustration.  
There were lots of everything you're doing wrong emails from the corporate big-wigs. You know the phrase "shit rolls down hill?"  What both annoys and amuses me is that at my work, it tends to be "shit accumulates in your in-box."  
That is to say, the corporate director emails his assistant and CC's all the other managers.  So the assistant emails the store manager and CC's all the other managers.  So the store manager emails you and CC's all the other managers.....of the exact. same. message. 

And then there's the replies, which also all get CC'd by everyone to everyone.
My work email ends up looking like some of digital M.C. Escher nightmare.

I'd like to make a note that I like my job a lot, I enjoy the people I work with, and it's crazy-cool to once again have full time, medical insurance, benefits, and truth be told, the hours aren't that bad. There are a lot of perks and if I hated it, I wouldn't do it.  But like I said...it was just one of those.


  1. My least favorite thing about my job is when people send a pissy email and CC my boss/supervisor/everyone else instead of just coming to me and being a human being. Oh, corporate America. haha

  2. I'm so glad I don't have to bother with work email :) There is one lady that gets so email happy and has to CC everyone and email stuff that isn't even that important. I think everyone has bad days at good jobs, I'm sure that there are some Google employees that have bad days... like there wasn't any free food they felt like eating? Lols.
