I have had better Fridays!! Our office was to close at 3:00 p.m. Of course, I can count on one hand in 6-years that I’ve actually left the office when we closed early…today was NOT one of those days.
My cube-mate bailed out about 5 minutes till 5:00 p.m. I had a few things to get done for my 2 attorneys and then low and behold, my cube-mate’s attorney returned from her depositions only to discover that her secretary, my cube-mate had done some subpoenas completely wrong…the biggest problem being that they HAD to go out today.
You guessed it, I offered to help and was taken up on it. Not a problem other than I ended up not leaving the office until 5:00 p.m. after working through my lunch hour, so technically, I worked a full day…which I would have gotten paid the same whether I was there or not.
Nevertheless, my work ethic is such that I’m paid to do my job and whoever else needs assistance…hopefully, somewhere on down the road of life, my efforts and ethics will be noticed and rewarded.
How was your “Good Friday?” Maybe you were one of the lucky folks and had the whole day off????
I’m hoping to get some rest this weekend, though it will be the first holiday without both of my parents…I’ll spend it with my brother and sister and our families.
Time to grab a bite to eat and enjoy the company of a couple of good friends!!!
