Arguing with the biometrics group is not how I wanted to spend my Tuesday. Actually, the struggle has been going on since last week. One simple table update, that’s all I need. But you’d think that I was asking for an entire report from the US census bureau. *sigh*
The head of the department has got a thing for closed doors. He calls you into his office for a “discussion,” then verbally takes you down.
On a day where every double check of the in-text tables and listings I am reviewing yields a different response, I am more than frustrated. I don’t have time to be “called out.”
What I wouldn’t give to be able to have a door to close so that I could better concentrate on my task-at-hand. If only his group would’ve generated said listings when asked, I wouldn’t need to do what I am doing. Instead, I’m being asked why I’ve repeatedly sent email after email documenting an issue in need of resolution (read: his group needs to correct the ONE listing they’ve provided.)
And on a day where I’ve been frazzled beyond frazzled, push-back (behind closed OR open doors) is NOT the desired response.
That was yesterday. Here’s hoping today will be different.
