Just a fast rant.

I'm sneaking a moment away from work to just release a moment of frustration. The company I worked for decided to merge with another company. Both were small businesses... ALL, yes ALL of our client service, support, marketing, AND sales employees left... (we had 20 employees...) It was just the CEO, 2 developers... and me that remained. The management realized that I was overwhelmed by taking over so many tasks and projects (in addition to handling the administrative details of the merger, client relations, product implementation, project management, oh... and all the bookkeeping). Luckily they hired a customer service rep and a tech rep right away... But they don't work on any of the things I'm responsible for... So, finally, they decide that I really am overwhelmed. I think they just got tired of hearing me say, "I didn't have time for that... or that... or that.. and well, I haven't finished that yet and I'm still working on THAT so get off my back!" They decided they'd give me a break and hire a bookkeeper to take over that part of my job.

Her first day was Monday.
Today she quits...
/sigh. I SO do not get paid enough.

On a completely side and random note... I've been saved! Yes, a lovely little Asian woman brought me a WORLD WIDE MESSAGE!!! The end of false religion is near (or so the little pamphlet she shoved into my hands says)!! OMG! I didn't even know there was a false religion... let alone that it was near! Is it hanging out in my backyard? Has it been taunting my dog?

Did you know that false religion: "Meddles with war and politics", "Spreads False Doctrine", and.... OMG!! "Tolerates Immoral Sex"... Not tolerating immoral sex! How can we continue???

Yeah, ok, whatever, I'll um, "save" this pamphlet in the handy white bucket-like storage device I keep under my desk. It's where I stick all these important messages.

My "important documents" storage device is grey. I use it often.

I GOT THAT IMPORTANT DOCUMENT TOO! Immediately upon its receipt, I dashed to Home Depot for duct tape and plastic tarps. You can never be too safe when the end of false religion is near, is what I always say.

Abi... the only thing you are missing is your bull horn so that you will be prepared to stand on the busy intersection and notify the rest of the world!

You're right! And a crash helmet!

Do you think I should get one of those sandwich-board-sign-thingies to wear while I march up and down the busy intersection, helmeted and bullhorn-y, and warn drivers of the impending end of false religion? Or would that be too much?

Hmm. Important document, huh?

Maybe I should seek one out. Sounds like I'm missing out.
