A few weeks back one of my bosses and I were talking and we decided to create a little CYA spreadsheet for ourselves (when I say we, it means I will be creating this spreadsheet) that lists the attachments from this one 400 page production that we produced. No big deal, I figured during some of the down time I can put some basic information together. Well, enter drama. The garden gnome of a secretary of the national boss heard us talking about it and runs off and tells said national boss that I am working on an all inclusive document spreadsheet that will spell out any and all attachments to emails, what Bates number was used for them and which ones were withheld for the team to use for upcoming depositions and hearings. WHAT?!?!?!
Anyway, now that guy keeps asking what the status of these completely delusional spreadsheet is. All inclusive brings in thousands of email chains, most translated from their original Japanese into word documents with just a blurb of what the attachment MAY have been. UGH!
There is no way to do this stupid spreadsheet. It would take some kind of computer program to weed through the mountains of information in any reasonable time. It will take me months - months that I don't have.
Oh well, still have my fingers crossed that I get laid off
