Innocence Lost

Occasionally in my place of work you need something done by another department, but their honey-do list is already too long, and you are put to the end of the line to wait... for hours, or days, weeks or months. It comes with the territory and it's ok. You may once and a while make a friend in another department who might be able to speed things a long a little faster. That sure is nice.

Well this week has certainly had its challenges. Much is happening in the twilight zone that is my work. Lots of meetings, last minute. Preparing, planning, ordering, training. Editing, adjusting, emailing, approving. I can handle stress fairly well, however this particular time I got a little spazzy as i was spazzing from one task to the next. Spazzing here. Spazzing there.

I was asked to do one more major type thing. By an important Administrator. Almost put me over the edge. Thus the spazz effect. It required a great deal of effort, not something that could just be thrown together. When I was done I attached the document and here is the actual cut and paste of my reply email:

Here you go.
We usually accept bribes of chocolate for fast turn around times. But we made an exception this time. =)

Looking back even just a minute or two after I sent it, I realized that may have been an entirely TOO BOLD thing to say.... especially to someone like that. Oh shoot. In a time of need and here I go mouthing off to a big wig trying to be funny.... but maybe actually not so much. Sometimes I really do think I'm funny. But no.

Here's the response I received back
