It never ceases to amaze me to find out I’ve been ignored this whole time.
I should have known this would happen. Why, no one listens to what I say at home – not my aunts, my mom, certainly not my uncles and cousins – why does bother me so much?
I went into the office this Wednesday. I go in two days a week now – Monday and Wednesday. Wednesdays are particularly busy for me. I have mail to sort, stamp, and deliver to another floor. I got checks that need to be deposited. I have emails that need responding. On top of that, my sometimes gruesome daily tasks.
This Wednesday, my colleague, C, came into the office. Her normal in-office days are Tuesdays and Thursdays. We both manage 2 of the 5 companies under the umbrella of my place of employment. On this particular day though, we were both doing tasks for different companies.
“Oh my gosh!” C exclaimed suddenly. “Why don’t I know about this?”
“Know about what?” I asked curiously.
“That you can print receipt!”
“Only in this company.” I told her. “That’s what I’ve been saying to the software support people in all those meetings – you can only print receipt in one of the companies.”
I was a little surprised. I would’ve thought C would be the one to listen and S – my other colleague – would be the one to ignore my words.
In the bi-weekly meeting yesterday, C told S what she had discovered and laughed about how foolish she had been to manually change those invoices into receipts. In my mind, I was thinking, “If you would’ve listened to what I say in the first place, you would had save all the time manually adjusting those invoice in Adobe Acrobat.
