I am so. Tired.

You know what the definition of "inevitable" is? Inevitable is that when your bosses tell you that you are no longer allowed to work more than 30 hours per week, you will suddenly need to work 8 or 9 hours a day, every day, for two weeks straight.

Inevitable is that projects will get left until the very last minute and that it will then be my responsibility to take care of it before the deadline. The deadline that we have known about for days, if not weeks, and which is suddenly looming only moments away.

Inevitable is that things that were, for days, not important enough for other people to take care of, will suddenly become imperative and entirely my problem.

I started working at 8:30 this morning and I left at 5:30 this afternoon, with no lunch break and barely even time to go to the bathroom. I had to supervise our new intern AND my boss. And I have to do it all again tomorrow.

Okay - so as nice as it is to be contract, it is time to go full time with a killer salary! and the ability to expense all your clothing....(sigh...)give em hell honey - and get ready to figure out what you want to negotiate for! They are so under-utilizing everyone's detriment...Those projects so should have been delegated to you and you would have brought them in on time without this hassle!!!These people are their own worst enemies. Time to find another contract job and limit your exposure to this inept group.
