Agency life is so glamorous

08.01.2005 · Posted in Work

An all-agency email was sent out my the time-sheet lady today. Emails of this sort end up in your inbox about once a pay period. When I received my first note of this type I thought, “Oh shit, I’ve gotta get my timesheet in.” Now that I realize it’s commonplace, the urgency level doesn’t quite reach DEFCON 4.

I should also note that the person who sends these out is really quite sweet, which I think just adds to the somewhat comedic nature of getting such threatening emails at work.

Subject: IN RESPONSE TO .08 AS OF AUGUST 1.
Importance: High

Now that Minnesota has caught up with the rest of the nation in changing the blood alcohol limit to .08 it would be very helpful if you would all consider getting those July timesheets done right away. *

You know how overwrought I get on a normal month end and now I have to worry about limiting my alcohol consumption…its not going to be an easy week!

So, please could we get them all in by noon tomorrow….Month end reports will be run on Wednesday.

Thanks a bunch, ESPECIALLY TO THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE ALREADY DONE THEM!

*This includes Friday the 29th, even if you didn’t work – please submit it – and any weekend hours.

    Could she be sued for harrassment of an alcoholic?
