I haven't had a lot to say. I had to travel to Maine for work, which I didn't want to broadcast for some reason. I had no time to blog while I was there. Then I came back home and work was crazy so when I got home I didn't want to blog. Now it's week three and I'm just out of the habit.
Do I continue the blog? I don't know. It's a question I ask myself at least twice a week if not three times. I'll leave it up to you all though. So here's the deal, If I get ten comments saying I should keep the blog going, then I will. If I do not get ten comments, the blog will probably end soon.
Deadline is Sunday, March7 to leave your comment.
This isn't a pity party.
I don't think anyway???
Nonetheless, can I please talk about American Idol? Killing me softly is not only a song, but it is what that show is doing to me. Are there no longer people in the US who can sing? I enjoyed ZERO guys from last night, except for the guy with the mullet. I don't get it. I really don't.
You know what else I don't get? Executive "cherry" office furniture. It's so old school. Did you know they still make the two drawers on the bottom for hanging files?
Because people keep "files" in today's world. Wanna know how many "files" I keep?
Outside of invoices I've submitted for payment, I keep ZERO files.
This makes me think about how the corporate world operated in the mid to late 80's. I always revisit the movie "9 to 5" when I need to give myself a picture of that. All those ladies typing on typewriters outside the "bossman's" office.
WHAT WERE THEY TYPING????
WHY DID THE "BOSSMAN" HAVE TO SUMMON HIS OWN PERSONAL SECRETARY INTO HIS OFFICE BY WAY OF INTERCOM???
Notice I said secretary and not assistant.
The old school mentality is still so funny to me because so many people have it. People still say Bossman, by the way. Some people still consider you late if you walk in your office at 8:01 AND WRITE YOU UP FOR IT. Now, I am not a proponent of being tardy for work by any means, however, it is 2010 and technology has given us so much flexibility in our work schedules these days. Today, we have the workload of three people from the 80's and 90's.
Where I work today, I hear stories about how many employees used to work here and I am dumbfounded. EVERY departmental manager had a secretary. Hysterical. I really don't know what these secretaries did except type memos.
Those are funny.
I don't know how I ended up talking about workplace efficiency in a blog that started about if I should keep blogging or not, but I'll tell you this, it's annoying and I need it to stop.
Ok. Do you want me to keep the blog? Yes or No.
I can handle it.
As I reach for a tissue.
