O/T Work Vent--Mrs. Headlights Strikes Again
So late on Friday apparently Mrs. Headlights couldn't get the boss to do 100% of her work. The boss fobbed her off and told her to ask my cubicle mate how to do a certain procedure.
Now mind you I have been doing this procedure which is very tedious before my cubicle mate, a younger worker not yet 30, came into the fray. I taught him how to fix this problem but now this is supposed to be Mrs. Headlights' dept.
After my cubicle mate explained that this is a tedious procedure, he started to offer to do the work for her and that's when I stepped in.
I immediately explained that she would have to copy the settings from a working receipt printer's software on every single Tab and there are about six of them.
Mrs. Headlights immediately shot daggers at me with her eyes because she was just about to get my cubicle mate to do the work for her.
She left our office pissed off and then immediately proceeded to take Monday off in hopes that someone else would do the work for her.
I think someone posted about their skid constantly saying "I forgot," well this is one of Mrs. Headlights favorite sayings when she royally screws up the little tiny bit of work that she is assigned that is supposedly foolproof.
As a side note I am good friends with the administrative assistant that she and the boss pushed out to another department. They did not like it that she was too efficient and now the wheels have fallen off of our department.
I met with our old Administrative Assistant for lunch the other day and as luck would have it Mrs. Headlights' daughter is interning in her department and apparently doing a terrible job of it.
I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree as Mrs. Headlights' daughter is completely useless, slow and just plain dumb according to our old Administrative Assistant.
Not surprising because Mrs. Headlights never had to use her brain to climb the corporate ladder if you know what I mean and also taught her daughter similar tactics whilst helicoptering and being enmeshed with her.
And no, Mrs. Headlights' daughter does not have the same attributes as her mother...she is about 5 foot 6 and reed thin with a mannish style. Fortunately she does NOT have her mother's face (nor her Dad's but I digress)
Our old administrative assistant is retiring next week and I will sadly miss her I missed her when she left our department. She was extremely efficient and kept our department running like a top. It's a shame our boss can't see past a woman's chest.
