Someday's I hate my job. Yep, like today.
Because people are mean to me? NO
Because I have an unruly boss? NO, he lives in Atlanta.. yep, I am the assitant to a man that lives 12 hours away
Because I get called Mr. Darcy in emails because I work in an International department where our distributors think I'm a dude? NO... although this one bothers me somtimes
Because the work that I perform is really, really hard? YES!!!
Okay, today I hate my job because I get to plan meetings at places like this:
Yep, I get to plan meetings in Phuket, Thailand in which I send all my Asian sales dudes and their distributors to. Do they invite me to come?
Oh no, just tell me to plan the meeting half-way around the world.
Seriously.. today I had to decide on the food and beverage to be served at the meeting. So, I start on the opening welcome reception the first night... flip through the menus to find "MAKING AN IMPRESSION UPON ARRIVAL" page. Hmmm.. the "ERAWAN Elephant Welcome package" looks interesting. So this one includes a "young talented Elephant bearing the name of your group to welcome you upon your arrival in the Atrium" Are you kidding me? I want to meet the elephant with a hankerchief with our logo around his neck! (That's what I'm imagining...)
This place not only had swim up bars.. but SWIM UP RESTAURANTS. Yes, where the PAD THAI flows like a fountain! Okay, I made the pad thai/fountain part up but I'm sure that the talented young elephant could arrange that. He is talented, you know.
This is the place that my sales guys get hour long massages by 2 girls, ocean front... for 5 dollars!!! NOT KIDDING YOU. Seriously, how could I NOT be invited? I just had to take a break from planning this meeting because I was ready to puke cuz I'm not going.. and of course because I wanted to complain. =)
Oh, and BTW: My Friday post with the 2 truth's and a lie.. the "I am one of 9 children" is wrong.. I'm actually 1 of 10 since my dad got remarried. Yep, family gathering are a TAD different now then they used to be. Someday I'll post about my big Darcy/small Darcy fun. =)
Oh, and PHOTO SWAP'S WITH THE TALENTED RACHELC FROM 2PEAS IS SOOOO FUN!!! HERE'S WHAT I WHIPPED UP FOR HER SWEETIE-HEAD BABY ALEXA:

(AND FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO KNOW HER, YOU KNOW WHY I PUSHED THAT CAPS LOCK BUTTON TO WRITE THIS PART! =) WE'VE GOTTEN TO KNOW EACH OTHER SO WELL OVER THE LAST MONTH OR SO..
