Almost made it to the end of induction

For the record, a couple of members of staff were 'working at home' today. Nothing unusual with that, but they are the two who were drinking a fair amount of the amber nectar last night at the social event (reports seem to confirm that they were 'plastered'). I actually got in earlier than normal, with the schools back the traffic increases markably on the roads, as long as I leave and am past certain places by certain times then I'll be fine. If not then I'm stuck in traffic or I take one of my alternate routes.

We only have another day left of induction week. Next week the lectures start, it'll be very busy, but not as busy as this week. I can deal with the workload at the moment, but I wish that the new subject manager wouldn't keep on having these damn ideas of things we can do (and which I have to build/program/investigate).

Every day he seems to come along and find something new he wants me to do - nice, but very annoying. There is no backup to me, I have noone I can call on for help because of the job I do. I expect I'll be spending a lot of time working out what the hell he wants and how to do it. Couple that with all the other jobs and I wonder how on earth I'm going to do all this.

Sometimes I wish I'd stayed in the finance department and learnt to be a accountant.

Hell - I think I prefered it when I was a filing clerk - nice simple job. No computers, all I needed was a staple remover and hole punch.

Oh, and just for the hell of it
