Some may remember me having a whinge about a colleague in another office whose habit of engaging me in mindless phone chat for 5 minutes before we can get down to business, drives me a little bit around the bend.
What I didn't tell you was the faint tone of hysteria gleaned from those 5 minute Dial'n'Chats, as if she'd do anything NOT to get down to business. Coupled with this has been the recent stacking up of little mistakes and mysteriously tighter than usual deadlines.
Now she didn't come in today - having apparently snapped and fucked off all her work. Now her co-workers are planning to drive me nuts over the next few weeks trying to do her job (wrong) in her absence.
Is it worth stumping up for an auxiliary therapist? I miss her now.
