Silly Spider


We have been experiencing work email ‘issues’ all week (which may help explain my irregular posting) and while scooting over to help another assistant retrieve a pic I had sent her, a new voicemail arrived. Nothing unusual there. Much to my surprise it was from the Spider informing me she would be out of the office all next week and would I put out a mass group voicemail informing everyone of her being the featured entertainment at a local establishment this weekend. Excuse me? This is related to work, how? We are in the education not entertainment business and while I realize they both start with the letter “E,” they are worlds apart. And where in my job description does it state that I am to further your moonlighting ventures? Furthermore, I refuse to abuse the voicemail privileges bestowed upon me by plugging personal agendas of Chaos College employees. I shot back a nicely worded voicemail informing her I was unable (let alone willing, not that I voiced that...) to carry out her atypical request. As I mentioned in a previous post, one word succinctly sums up the Spider"cajones". BIG ONES.

Si se va a tener cajones, se debe tener cajones grandes.

Just having balls no longer gets you anywhere: you have to have big ones.

I laughed my head off at entertainment and education both starting with E. Maybe if you teach her that, she'll better be able to do her job. Or choose the entertainment industry over the education industry, in which case you will be free of her. A win/win either way.

hahaha... I cant believe someone actually asked you to do that. Send her to Sandy and have her ask Sandy to do it *giggle*

then watch the fireworks. hahah

Chica--she comes as a matched set as her dear (smaller), long-suffering hubby is a true gem who also works for the college. Both are part-timers but where he's a total sweetheart, she's a huge pain-in-the-ass. When we lose him, we'll lose her and not a second before. And though she is a talented singer and plays musical instruments, it's not my job to call attention to her latest after hours gig! :)

Ker--I think she was going to ask Sandy to do a mass email so I need to go down there and see what Sandy thought about it and watch her make her famous disgusted face. LOL

Those damn matched sets anyway, Circe. Why can't they be like socks?!?! Supposedly a matched set, but I always lose one of them...

I know Chica! I can't tell you how many times I lose a mate to a sock....
