Why isn't anything working out today???!!!  
*Charlie Brown scream*


Nobody is being cooperative at work today.  A shipping company that I've been telling for WEEKS that these crates need to be in Dubai by next week, just casually informed me that maybe, if I'm lucky, they'll get picked up on FRIDAY.  WTH?!!  What part of DUBAI didn't get through??  =:-O

Now the artist, the artist rep, the receiving gallery and my boss are all going to mad at, you guessed it, me.  *sigh*

And, that's not the only thing going wrong, but it's my biggest frustration today.  *mutters*

Well, I can sit here and be cranky, or I can go get my lunch and hope when they call back they'll have some better news for me.  At least the weather's nice today--70 degrees, cool and sunny, 40s expected tonight.

*trudges off to Panera for soup*

Maybe they're thinking that "next week" has seven days and they're looking at the END of next week? Did they advertise that they actually had BRAINS?

Day after tomorrow is Thursday, does that help?

Deej, ya home yet?? :-D

Oh, it got worse since I posted...I was calmly told by the shipper that since the artist didn't have their paperwork ready (not a surprise, since the drivers showed up 50 minutes EARLY) that she was washing her hands of it, and if I got the artist to cooperate, and got the paperwork to her by 5pm today, they would deign to return. I need someone tall and intimidating (when he's not being a Puppy) to go loom over them. *whistles* Yo, Sammy!

It helps a little. It'd be better if Thursday was, well, today. ;-)

It's FUN being on the bottom rung of the ladder, isn't it? ::sighs:: Been there so many times--I do everything right, someone else or something else screws up, and I still get the blame. Stoopid people. ::shakes fist::

Really, it's so frustrating to do your best and be efficient and follow up and not have everyone else cooperate! Sorry you've felt my pain... I actually told myself, "well, could be worse, at least you didn't make a deal to send your soul to hell..."

It helped, a little.

See now that makes me mad? They lack brains, and here I thought there was hope for humanity. *kicks company for you* Even Priestly would tell them they couldn't read.

*smishes you*

I dunno, today humanity is on the hopeless list. Bah.

Aww, thanks! I should send Priestly over to plead my case with the shipper people, wearing his kilt! Yes, that would do.

*smishes back*

Ahhh, Priestly...*nods* icons sometime whenever yes... *looks at LJ* Better actually get around to a paying account for more room...hee!

It is now up shit creek to put it bluntly look how much fail occurred! http://mariaalejandra.livejournal.com/207413.html - we need all the help we can get Clarity between shipper people and desk court house clerks.

I should send him to the court house this is . . . just stupidity of the highest order.

*smishes* Will do!
