Over the last three days, I've gotten to say both of these things.
I fired a temp yesterday because she wasn't performing up to expectations. Ah, expectations, which will invariably lead to disappointment. Still, as a boss (not a BOOSE) you have to have expectations and if they're not met, you get to fire people.
I did, and then had nightmares about it last night.
Firing people really sucks, but the gratitude on the faces of the rest of Document Control helped to ease that suckiness.
I hired someone new today. Heather likes her and figures she'll do okay. I hope she's right because we're running out of time.
For those of you keeping track, 6 days, 4 hours and 23 minutes... 22 minutes.
As for reading and my annual goal, I have been forced, by the work situation, to put that on hold. There is a certain amount of work I have to get done before I leave and it comes before any subtle knives.
