work is awful again. temporarily but it just massively demonstrates that despite their best intentions the situation is repeatedly fucked up. i've been able to work on something important and time sensitive this week for the first time in about a month as loads of more critical shit kept getting in the way. yesterday i got a load of passive aggressive nagging to mentor the new girl instead of priorising this work. i planned to do so today. this morning i got dragged into a meeting telling me that the important thing that i wanted to prioritise has not only been decided to be the top priority it is now urgent. the big cheese has somewhat arbitrarily decided that it all needs to be done by the end of tomorrow. and in order to achieve this half of the work will be done by someone else so i lose control over it yay! also i had planned to leave early today and that is now not an option.
