Two things happened at work today that were like the sun peeking over the horizon: a sign of (hopefully) better things to come in the future.
One of those would take too long to explain, but it can be summarized as: our complaints about the processes we use, and the way some people ignorantly bypass or abuse them, appear to have landed on the right desk, and it looks like action will be taken. The problem stems from the fact that our department, which provides support services to the whole of Europe, was compensating for problems and shortages in the two biggest countries (UK and Germany), and we were doing other people’s jobs.
As for the second, well, if you look at the date on this entry and the business news headlines, you can guess where I work and why, on this inauspicious Wednesday, the cry went out: “Ding, Dong, the Witch is Dead”. Say No More.
