    Have you installed the wrong programme?

    Courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.

    No, it's definitely the right one, and it's in every room because I made myself a list. Yet the deputy branch manager has emailed my line manager to say it's broken because it's the wrong program.

    On top of that, my new line manager wants me to start using a second program to keep track of what needs fixing. I'm under the impression that one list should be enough, and even the deputy branch manager agrees with me on this.

    Maybe your deputy branch manager could talk to your manager about it then?

    The deputy branch manager said he would talk to my line manager about that, but I think he's still going to mis-diagnoses problems and email my line manager (who will believe him). The deputy branch manager considers himself an expert problems I should be dealing with, but he makes me look incompetent when he starts emailing my line manager with suggestions like "The wrong program has been installed in every office."

    Glad he's going to talk to him for you. I hope that it's sorted easily.

    I've got a meeting tomorrow to address the health issues I faced last year. To avoid further time off, I have cancelled all of my medical appointments so that should make my myriad of managers happy.
    There's another meeting next week to address my incompetency. Not sure how I can fix that one so easily.

    You are entitled to time off for medical issues...

    I suppose management won't be too happy when I start bleeding all over the place. They're not pleased when I follow instructions either. I'll see what they have to say to me tomorrow.

    My job search appears to be picking up though, as there's two agencies which seem to be very interested in some websites I made.

    What do you mean about bleeding all over the place?
