Okay, I Guess I Lied

While you are reading this, I am currently being filleted in the dermatologist’s office, but I wanted to post the nonsense I needed to overcome last night.

So, I walked into the building at 2:30pm, even though I my shift doesn’t begin until 3pm. I get there early because there is always a stack of reports waiting for me, because the substitutes never enter anything when I have a day off.

The day shift left us a suicide and two arrests, and we only had four detectives on the floor. So my stress started bubbling inside me. I reached over to the assignment bin, pulled out what seemed like a few pounds or so of paperwork, and lost my mind.

Monday’s substitute desk person left me twenty-eight unassigned jobs. On a decent night shift, we’ll see twenty-eight jobs in an eight-hour tour. I had to enter twenty-eight jobs before I could even start yesterday’s live jobs. After ranting about my coworker for a few minutes, I started entering the jobs at around 2:55pm. I was not finished with the pile until 6:35pm.

At the end of the night, I entered forty jobs.

I have never been angrier in my life, with the exception of Vica Kerekes’ marriage.

  1. Any way you could subtly hint to the Sergeant or Lieutenant that he or she should monitor your substitutes productivity? Maybe all they need is a litle encouragement and in your face mentoring?

    Good Luck on the facelift. I heard all the Hollywood leadig men are getting them now.


  2. Mike AKA Proof – There are only a few who do this – Diego is one of them – and it is only when I’m off. I suspect there will be thirty jobs waiting to be assigned.

    RD – Both sergeants have been told – repeatedly – but sometimes they just don’t care.

    Ronni – They do it because they know they will get away with it.


  3. My day is not as bad as yours was. Just dropped a gallon container of milk & it broke open. Saved half the gallon of milk & my dog helped clean up. He’s still licking the floor. Sweet!


  4. Vica Kerekes marriage could fall apart at any moment and you would have your chance…..just a question how good a shot is Mrs. Earp?
