It's Wednesday and It's Wonderful!
It's Wednesday and it's wonderful here in The Nuthouse! If I remember correctly, I do not think I have ever used the word "wonderful' when describing The Nuthouse - today that changed! As you know, The Boss is away on vacation and his wife has given the edict that he cannot call the office. Although, he broke protocol and phoned us from what I can only imagine was a dark closet on Monday. Since then, we have not heard from him; I guess we know who wears the pants in that family. God bless her and her rules - she is my new favorite person!
Without having to answer the usual hourly calls when The Boss is away, has allowed everyone to get a ton of work done. I no longer have a pile of paperwork that needs filing, billing has been completed and I even made some collection calls today. Whew! It is exhausting to get so much accomplished by Wednesday.
Orders continue to pour in and the warehouse staff, without the "assistance" of The Boss has been getting them out the door in record time. Even they have commented that they feel more productive without him around "checking in" with them a dozen times a day. Some of the sales staff will be conducting a training seminar in a customers office in a few weeks, so Wayne has been busy working on some product samples for them to take with them. I am happy to say, he continues to be accident free. Maybe we should purchase a blackboard where we can document each day without an accident. I'll have to see if there is a prominent spot in the warehouse where we can hang it. I'm sure The Boss will not find the same amount of humor that I do in that purchase.
I had to take Milo to the vet yesterday for his yearly check up. He sang quite a tune all the way to the office; by the time we arrived I really needed an Advil! All went well, but I still think he is holding the trip against me. When we arrived home all Cooper was interested in was smelling him. As you can imagine, this increased interest from Cooper did not make Milo happy. This morning when I put my shoes on to leave for work, Milo ran like the wind. I wonder if he was thinking I was coming for him again. Don't worry Milo, unless something unexpected comes up, you are good for a whole year!
John has spent a great deal of time away from his desk and talking with Drew this week. This means he is closer to me. Did I mention that his voice annoys me? I'm sure I did, but I wanted to make sure you knew it. I would have thought John would have spent this time brushing up on his CAD skills which seem to be a bit slim, but who am I to judge.
Well, tomorrow is Thursday and I know that The Boss will break away from his captor long enough to call us. I wonder how he is handling not phoning the office a dozen times a day. I can picture him shaking like an alcoholic that has gone a bit too long without hitting the hooch. Between his DT's and his general annoying personality, his wife must be having a blast on vacation.
