Well, I think the Boss came up with a good idea: a daily checklist for everyone in the office to complete. Of course, the conversation went something along these lines:
Him: Do you have a checklist?
Me: (working on something else because I assume he's talking to Number Two)
Me: Checklist? Me? We? Umm... no... we don't have a checklist.
Him: Why don't you make one?
LOL... so his response to me saying I'm terribly burned out is to give me another project! Of course, his justification was that I know the job better than he does (problematic? possibly... but not for me!). And I managed to pop out a checklist, broken down by time of day you work, within 2 hours. Luckily for me, GT is getting to the point where I can give her a project and she works independently for a while, so I had a little free time.
Scott's first reaction to this news was wondering whether he'll actually hold us accountable for what we do or don't check - I believe the term he used was falsification of documents. And frankly, right now I don't care. Having our duties in writing can only be a good thing for all of us. It also impressed me that the Boss added just two things to my checklist: a line for number of outgoing confirmation calls made (my biggest pet peeve with the others), and a signature line. The latter leads me to believe that perhaps we will be held accountable.
So I guess it's safe to say that I had a pretty decent day. And for now, I can be content with the knowledge that my concerns have been addressed, that our office is fully staffed (for the first time since I've been there), and that I actually have my three days off next week.
(oh yes, and the smell of brownies wafting from the fridge? that makes me happy too. thanks, Scott!)
