How Quickly Things Change

It is amazing how quickly one can go from, "Wow, what a great organization.  I can help a lot of people live better lives by working here"  to, "You just erased all the work I did over the whole day by pressing one button?  Fuck it, I get paid by the hour."  It took me less than a week.

Yes, yesterday at the very end of the day yesterday, my boss erased the email I'd spent all day adding bccs to, with a charming "Oops"  and then the admittance that she really isn't all that great with computers and had no idea how to undo.  I then got to utter the immortal words, "Well I guess I should reconstruct before I move on to the next project."  or in my head, "Fuck it, I get paid by the hour."

Today I tried to talk on the phone with donors while hacking through the worst cold in the known universe.  Can't wait to see what tomorrow brings.
