It’s Only Tuesday?!

It’s only Tues but I feel as though I’ve spent all the energy available for work.  Cache has shown himself to be an efficient worker.  I’m also impressed that when I explain insurance concepts to him, he asks sensible questions that demonstrate his logical processing of the information.  But having to take care of this temp/intern has resulted in me working extra hard as I try to clear my own work as fast as possible. 

Heard from Jazz that a laptop has been approved for me and I’m probably going to get it in March.  That is NOT good news ‘cos it means I’ll be expected to check on deals from home.  Bleah.  There has also been rumours that this year’s increment and bonus is going to be BAD.  So it’s more work for less monetary compensation?  Argh.  So demoralising.  I hope the new government export scheme we’re on brings in big bucks so I can get a big fat bonus next year!  And a through the roof increment too!  Show me the money!

    Unfortunately, an exception was made… no need manager rank to get laptop… Upsize finally convinced the powers that be that if 80% of my underwriters work in timezone that range from 7-13hrs behind… it only makes sense for me to get a laptop… then weekend also can reply email. 🙁

    Did u know Atas was made to work during her NY holiday? 🙁 At least now when I go holiday, I got excuse not to check emails.

    Sigh…the scourge of a laptop. Got one too but it never leaves the office. They even insisted that must apply for a 2FA token and the approval process was quick but my token is sitting in the office. HAHAHAHAHAA
