Your Government Dollars Hard At Work

Today has been a complete nightmare at work. We were recently audited by UDOT and we are under the gun to be in compliance by Monday. I have been working with a woman from the UDOT office who has actually been really nice and somewhat helpful. This afternoon about 11:30 while I was on a conference call with both she and my COO she suddenly cut us off mid-sentence and said, "You know what.....let me call you back after lunch. I just bought a new puppy and I need to run check on him."

I want the job where I can feel free to check on my random puppies as often as I would like at the expense of helping the people who I am currently on the phone with. Is it just me or is this actually complete insanity?!?!

Hello? Mr. President? Thanks so much for taking my call. Oh, wait--can you hang on just a second? I just need to run real quick and check on my Basset Hound. Thanks.

I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to side with the lady with the puppy--come on, it's a puppy!

So was the puppy ok or not? You've got me on pins and needles!

Inquiring minds want to know…what is an overracter?

Your subtitle states: Thoughts from an overreactor descended from a long line of overractors.

Is it an A.S.S thing?
