A quick update and then I can relax! :) My boss said that he wants me to travel next week and fix the wireless in several facilities. We have been talking about this since I interviewed. However, I’ve been asking questions and no one has any answers. Now all of a sudden on a dime I am supposed to preform a magic trick. Sorry, but it doesn’t work like that. This is my reputation and job that is on the line. If I do a crappy job not only will I be forced to go back but it could lead to my demise. I want to do it right, the first time!
That means that I need time and have to get some information as well as talk to vendors to find out what the best fit is. There is just no way that I will be able to pull this off with just a couple days notice. So, I spoke up and said so.
Now it turns out I am traveling next week to preform an audit at these same facilities as well as see if they need anything. I guess he just wants to get me acclimated to the environment. That’s fine but gee we could wait a couple weeks and I could do both in one trip.
Turns out they are going to fly me to this place. Well I have NEVER EVER flown commercial so I have no idea what to expect. One of the ladies in the office said that she might go with me. That’s nice but I don’t want to share a room or a bed!
The first part of July I will be going to a different facility, probably with our HR person. Maybe they will pay to fly me to this place as well, I don’t know.
So things are starting to heat up. I’ve got plenty to do right now. Plus server problems in another location, that just makes me really busy. I left the office feeling a bit overwhelmed as well as confused. So glad today is over with.
2 more days until my 3 day weekend. Thursday is pretty well spoken for, I will be in training.
My worries on traveling are on what to expect, what can I bring. I plan on researching that tomorrow at work, after all it is work related. Then my bigger concern is about home and how my partner & the kids will get along with out me. It should only be a couple days but me and the kids have NEVER EVER been separated for more than 2 days tops. I hope they will be okay.
More details on this to come. Now it’s time to make my lunch and relax for the rest of the night. I hope your day went well. I will talk with you peeps later!
