I Am Fully Fed Up

They are doing it on purpose

The following events are true. I am not making any of this up.

I’m at my wit’s end, as they say.

Do you ever get so frustrated that you just want to give up on a certain task or objective? I sure do.

Whatever it is, after a certain point I really don’t care any more and just want to be rid of it. That is me right now.

This thing started months ago. I booked an appointment at this place. No problem at all.

Once I locked in the date, I scheduled time off and then moved around a few things so it worked in our schedule.

Then, once we got to within a couple days of the event, we were told that the appointment had to get cancelled because of some computer issues or upgrades, or a combination of both. Okay, time to start over. So I scheduled a new date a month later.

Meanwhile, in a related issue, I sent a document that we need to an official inbox for approval. We waited and waited. Finally I write back and it looks like nobody had been doing anything on it.

Has any of this ever happened to you? I’m starting to think it’s just me, that maybe it’s something personal, that the world is trying to send me a message that I just didn’t understand.

Now today I just got a message in my inbox that the date has to be cancelled because it was booked on a date that is a holiday. Yes, indeed, as I picked that day because we all have it off and the person booked it for me without any issues.

My question is, do they have access to their own calendar? Don’t they know when they are in or out of the office? They must have that!

It’s all so frustrating. Now we will have to find another date and rearrange everything else.

Back to the other issue, I got an email back asking for some information. This is the exact same request that I responded to a few weeks ago.

I’m beginning to think, in this situation and the other, that there are multiple people responding to these messages and that maybe they are not communicating with each other.

Well, don’t mind me. I guess it’s par for the course on this golf course of life. Your mileage may vary.
