I shouldn't gripe about scheduling morons

I shouldn't gripe about this, but I will. I shouldn't gripe because I am horrible about getting times wrong and double booking myself or showing up at the wrong time or place.

That being said, scheduling is not my job. I don't have to be good at it for the most part.

The volunteer coordinator at the ACLU does have to be good at it and it is his job. He told him I could cover 4 to 6 on Saturday at Bookfest. I got a letter saying 4 to 6 on Sunday, but I didn't really look at it cause I assumed he had read my email to him stating Saturday. Apparently not.

I got to the booth, and someone else was there. They didn't need me. I got home and checked the letter and it had me down as 4 to 6 on Sunday. I have a flight out at 6. I will be at Bookfest tomorrow, but I have to leave sometime around 3 in order to make my flight. Of course, I have no way to contact him and tell him he needs to find a replacement, pronto. He doesn't check his email on weekends. Well, there's that and he quit to go work somewhere else scheduling people. His last day was Friday. I feel bad. But not that much.

I apologize to the folks who stopped by to see me there and I wasn't.

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
