I have been thrown under the bus so many times today I'm beginning to feel like road kill. First thing this morning, before I even made it into the office, I was taking a conference call from my cell when one of the participants, who wasn't prepared for the call, tells the boss that he hadn't received any emails from me regarding what the call and his subsequent presentation would entail. That is just a big fat lie. True, the first email I sent got bounced back, but I then called his assistant personally, explained EVERYTHING to her, then resent the email to him by replying to one of his previous emails. I even have his reply thanking me! Apparently, his assistant went on vacation and didn't leave him any notes about my call.
Why am I such an easy target? Do people think, "Oh, she's just the assistant. We'll blame her." Well, be forewarned. Do not mess with Laurie Ann. I save every freaking email I think might possibly come up and bite me in the ass.
*nope, my ass is just big on its own.
