O/T I Asked for a Raise and Possible Title Change
Seeing that I have a LOT more responsibility now at work since taking on Retired Dude's work. Management didn't sit down with Retired Dude when he announced his retirement (he and his former wife/former employee were basically SILOs) and have him document all of his duties. I have had SEVERAL surprises. That and the fact that the servers he managed basically went unpatched for years.
Now we are in catch up mode and I've had to reverse engineer some of the stuff behind the scenes to understand how it functions. There are a lot of "script pointing to a script pointing to another script pointing to yet another script" crap going on under the hood. I've had to hit the ground running and unravel this ball of christmas lights.
It went well and my manager's manager (the CIO) is going to plead my case next month before the board.
Meanwhile Mrs. Headlights continues to screw up and offload all her work onto the new guy as well as my direct manager (who doesn't seem to mind but is also burning out). Mrs. Headlights resolves this by taking a few days off of work every other week allowing the manager and the new guy to catch up all of her work for her.
Nice work if you can get it....
