I am so mad!! Maybe this is making me so mad because I am pregnant - I seriously need a shirt that says, "Don't piss off the pregnant lady!"

Anyway, at work there is this secretary and she is totally type A, anal retentive, and it drives everyone nuts!! Well, She forwarded me info on how to go about taking my leave. This "leave" is actually taken out of my SICK days. Of course, I need approval from my doctor. So, I get her a time card, signed by the doctor for Jan. I forgot to bring one for Feb. to the appointment. Well, the secretary tells me I need a note too. Fine, I tell her I will get it to her next week. Well today she emails me asking for it again! UGH! I should have kept my big mouth shut, but I said something about getting it to her next week, but the information I read just required a time card. So she emails me back again, and said she had spoken to someone in payroll who of course affirmed that I need a doctor's note. Yes, I know. I already said I'd get you one!! Then she goes on to tell me she can charge it to UNpaid leave until I get the paperwork! UM NO!!!!!! They would end up never paying me for the time or paying me months later, knowing my school district. Oh, the best part is she doesn't even have to submit anything until at least Feb. 15th!!! IT IS ONLY THE FIRST, and I already told you I would have it next week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, I sent her an email back just saying NOT to charge it to unpaid leave and I would get her the paperwork next week. She is driving me nuts!!!!!!!!!!!



Heather- I feel for you, as I can sort of relate to your frustration with stupid people right now- I am currently on forced short term disability- not happy- and I am sure that it is going to be screwed up- and I am bored! To bad we don't live in the same state- we could entertain each other LOL...just think in about a month the girls will be here and you can look back at all of this and laugh or at least smile- because it has all been well worth it! Keeping you in my thoughts- sending you and the little ones lots of love!

Ugh! I'm sorry! I know my tolerance for such things is WAY low right now. If there's nothing I can do about something right now, stop harassing me about it! Grump.

Oh, that is so frustrating. It seems the sec. is on a power trip! My school's sec. is also quite forceful about following up with tracking people's "time" but not like that! Good luck.
