All Work & No Play = Promotion?

Well, one of my "evil" secrets is this ...

The Evil Corporation has given me a new office and a new (temporary) position - Acting Boss. The old Boss of one of the Evil Corporations' Fiefdoms retired rather unexpectedly. Our fearless UberBoss asked me to sit in as Acting Boss until arrangements could be made to set up a panel for interviews to replace the old Boss. The Fiefdom is a good one, but needs some serious attention to get things back to where they need to be. So, that means plenty of work ... and NO PLAY ... and maybe after the interviews are complete ... a BIG promotion.

Now how can I tell that certain, special SOMEONE that I really, really need to put in the time to get this thing rolling? Does "I love you" help? How about chocolates? Flowers? Corn whiskey in a wooden jug? Should I just keep my head down, nose to the grindstone and get it all done in long, empty silence? What would Nixon do? Why does the hallway to my new office seem like the "Long Dark of Moria?"

Tie that someone down. And do THINGS to them. Then they'll understand.

You'll be ok ;)

Ohhhhh....the more responsible you are, the more responsibilities you get! Dunno if you wanted the responsibility, but sounds like you accepted it for today.

I hope it goes well for you.
And as for giving it the time and energy it requires--I've always found "You knew what I was when you picked me up" to be a forthright statement to I'm delivering a good cut of steak to him....LOL

Congratulations, Skeeter. Hard work does pay off, but you prolly need to get your office back into working order and the skeleton back wherever it belongs. I wish you all the very best.
