Corrosive Shame
Therapy for Life
I'm having a bad day.

Firstly, I think I've broken the cardinal rule and given a colleague enough information to find this post - so Jean, if you're reading this - Hello :-)

Secondly, I've allowed myself to get wound up. I made a slight cc error on an email earlier and the fallout has left me rather on edge. It's not that I wouldn't say what I said to the peoples faces, but they reacted completely disproportionally and I am completely failing to make them see sense. Plus it's Friday night so sensible people have better things to do than argue with me. So far my favourite phrase used against me has been "crass ineptitude", one extememly heavy implication that my employer should sack me (as if I wasn't going to get a redundancy notice in January anyway) and a great philosohphical disagreement over whether I should be responsible to "the wider public sector" or "my direct employer" when there exists the potential for their priorities to be different.

Earlier in conversation it was remarked that I get more enthusiastic about work than I do about my social life. This might actually be true. Perhaps I need to get involved in a highly politicised hobby. I'm considering joining a camera club.

For now? I'm going to watch a nice calming movie. Brazil is on at the IMAX? I'm there...

And yes, I do appreciate the irony.

Current job is a fixed term contract which runs out in March. Beyond that - not sure yet!

I almost made a deliberate cc error earlier and copied that letter of complaint to the client himself. I was THAT angry:-)

When, on occasion, someone in my employ has copied an email to someone they shouldnt have, I've tended to remind myself that it isnt something I have never done before myself and that people in glass houses shouldnt throw stones - hence the bollocking, if any, has been limited to "erm...you know that email went to the client, don't you?".

I doubt if any of the folk accusing you of war crimes have a 100% clean record themselves on the subject and possibly reminding them of this would do no harm...?

I do love the message recall feature of Outlook/Exchange... people use it all the time at work and don't seem to realize that a) all it does is send a second message to everyone saying that they would like to recall the first and b) everyone who would've ignored it immediately reads it when they see the recall message...
