Today I had to tell my boss we won't be able to collect at least $10k owed our office, because we didn't document them correctly at the time.

Boss was surprisingly okay with this. We set a new policy that will prevent this particular problem from happening again, which it wouldn't. The real take-home message is: when you're doing something new, ask Marta what she needs to get us paid for it.

Which is never going to happen, and the way this is being parsed as unavoidable, unpredictable, and unforeseeable is just...

... *blinks* ...

... ... ... ...

... Yeah. This is not okay. Should not be at least.

This befuddlement at why we're not doing as well as we should, coupled with a refusal to include me on the planning change s I'm left playing catch-up and trying to plug holes on stupid, entirely avoidable missteps months after the fact, is exhausting. Also hilarious. Or it would be, if it didn't mean I didn't feel like I could ask for a well-deserved and long overdue raise. But really, there is some dark humor at work here.

What a frustrating, exhausting undertaking. *sigh*
