... and I'm gonna f--kin' throttle you. Yeah, you, Ms. Receptionist. Sorry I didn't get the billing training manuals to you two weeks before the class start, but they needed to be revised/QA-ed/compressed/repaginated first. I am one person, and it's a 240+ page book. It took me a full month to finish it, because this is the most detailed book. I gave it to you in pieces as I finished them so you wouldn't be overwhelmed. I even ASKED you before the project began if you would have time to help me, and you assured me you did.

So I didn't appreciate that email from your boss to me, copied to MY boss, asking why there was a "sudden deviation in procedure" because you'd complained that it was too much work. I didn't appreciate that you cannot follow directions as you are clearly the stupidest person on the friggin' planet. Do you really think that proper pagination goes 17-19-18-blank-21? Where's page 20, anyway? And I realize the printing is off because of your printer having different settings than mine, but do you remember when I told you part of the process was making sure each section had an even number of pages to ensure good pagination? Why is it then that 2/3 of the sections you printed have an odd number of pages? Why didn't you ask after the first section was off?

I gave you an out, saying I would personally take these to Staples to get them made. You said you could do it instead, and then b!tched because you agreed to help me. It's not my fault you're stupid and incompetent - I'm really pissed because I had to reprint (and manually double-side, BTW) nearly HALF OF THE 240+ PAGE BOOK MYSELF. This took more time than me printing it myself, thankyewverymuch. But I swear, one more word outta you today and I'm gonna f--kin' throttle you.

Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad ----- Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad
And yeah, fellow Riff Raffers, I'm having a friggin' day. Thank god it ends in 50 minutes.

Ah...I see our office admin assistant has a twin. Does she cry when you take work away from her as well? (because she's botched it, NOT to be mean)

Hell no. She isn't a cryer, she just pisses and moans all day long because people expect her to do work. Like answering phones. I mean, part of receptionist is RECEPT so recept some calls!

No, she's just stupid. She didn't listen when I told her it was going to be a big project. I explained IN DETAIL what it would entail. Three times verbally. And in a dozen emails, too.

I don't even care if I piss her off so much that she sics one of her 17 pet squirrels on me. The hard part is, her boss is a good friend and we only argue over the incompetency of her staff.
