There's a new database clerk at work who won't leave me alone.
She's stuck to me like Super Glue.
When she was hired a few weeks back, I was asked to meet briefly with her to do my usual schitck.... you know, introduce myself and let her know that I am the computer
geek support person for the Program. Like I do every time someone starts here.
That was the beginning of the end of my treasured solitary office lifestyle.
Because since then:
She emails me multiple times a day.
She leaves voicemails constantly.
She pops by unannounced.
She doesn't make a decision or move without consulting me first.
She even saves a seat for me beside her at meetings. And when I sit across the table, she MOVES to sit next to me.
Last week she pleaded for another one of her "emergency" meetings. After many emails and voicemail requests for help, I dragged myself over to her office in another building. Just to supervise her pushing one frickin' button.
Now, I AM a team player. I am also willing to help out a newbie. But this is getting ridiculous...
I need an Advanced Warning System with my very own tracking radar.
Until I can requisition that, I'll have to depend on call display and my locked door without a window.
Because I am officially in hiding.
