life begins - me

a other meme and a mini work complaint

so there are too many supervisors in this office. At the current count, there are eight people in this room and four of them are supervisors... Anyway, the way it works is:

L used to do my job but got promoted to run the department. She's kinda an expert on e-journals and the things I do, so she's also my direct supervisor. J heads up the Inter Library Loan section and is the direct supervisor of Cr. G heads up the Serial Acquisitions section and is R's direct supervisor.

So - L's in charge
J's next with G a very close second to her
Cr, R and I are all on the same level but concentrating on different areas.

To ensure that no one supervisor has the sole responsibility for managing the till, we've just started doing it on a rota. Wanna see what that rota is?

Week 1 - Shona (me)
Week 2 - G/R
Week 3 - J
Week 4 - Cr

if Shona's not in during her rota week, G or R will do it and if G and R aren't in, Shona will do it. If J's not in, C'll do it and vice versa.

I don't have a problem doing the till, I don't mind taking my turn and covering for other people when they're not there, but how come G and R share a week and I have one all on my own?

Strikes me as a teensy bit unfair there....

(oh, and for the second day so far this week I forgot to take my meds. It's 'cause it's in a different box again, I know that sounds like a stupid reason, but it really is why.)
