Nah, I think Sandra & Woo had that one. That is truly about the most evil thing I can think of doing to someone.

Ugh....so the guy who was ordering these manuals put in his two week notice.

Guess who is now ordering the books?

She just put in two orders. One for 400 books, and one for 100. At 1:45PM, and the due date is today at 5PM. "NEED ASAP!!!" sayeth the ticket.....

That is so not happening.

Oh, and one of the orders has no files attached

Making that many copies of a book, in 3 hours, without the content? Yeah, good luck with that, ditz.

She just dropped six more orders in the queue, and wants all of them by the end of the day Monday 9/16. This on top of the giant orders she put in yesterday.

No specs provided or files attached to ANY of the six orders. This time, she just posted the same PO - with six line items - six times, once for each book.

Oh wait....I'm on vacation starting tomorrow. So I DON'T CARE!!!!

I'd send the orders back, CC (or BCC) her boss-folk with a few polite queries/reality reminders. Still, maintaining some sort of SPECIFIC documentation (for easy reference) when she's involved will save time and hassle when the excrement starts impacting the various rotary impellers. When the supers start making inquiries about why the impossible deadlines didn't happen, just drop the whole file on 'em with no further explanation.

She just blew up the queue with more orders. All due within a week. My co-worker who will have to take the lead on these is having a conniption.

Linky, please? For the page in question

I'm a fan of S&W, too, and I have been for awhile. I even ended up with a spare copy of their book that they just released (apparently a screwup by the printer), and I wasn't the only one.

It was in post #17 in this thread, repeated below for your pleasure.

You two need to be reminded that you have some very stiff competition for that throne.

Hell's big enough to subdivide. You can each have a big, ornate throne in a sizable section, and there'll still be plenty left.

Oh, well, that's easy. "ASAP" means "as soon as possible" (not "immediately" as some folks seem to think). So you will deliver them as soon as possible. If it takes several weeks to complete the order, you still did it as soon as possible.
