English - week 9

It is soo boring here ... I'm starving! The phone rings about once per hour and there is not much I can do.

Tomorrow won't be any better ...

I already cleaned up my mailbox, I summarized the do-to's for the next trade show, prepared the powerpoint presentation for the results of the visitor and exhibitor questionnaire, I promoted our trade shows in the different groups on xing.com, answered the few threads here in the forum where I thought I might be able to give an useful input. I prepared the visitor questionnaires for tomorrow, edited and printed the exhibitor list for the collection of the exhibitor questionnaires tomorrow.

I smoked 1 1/2 pack of cigarettes ....

I'll create the duty-roster for my info-staff for the next trade fair tomorrow - after feeding the data of today's questionnaires into the system.

I could start translating certain areas of our homepage into English - but I am too tired, bored, not motivated.

Normally I can hardly go to the restroom - because the phone rings all the time. But not this time ... I knew it would be rather calm and easy going - but not soo calm!
I hate to sit around (have to stay here at least until 18:30), having nothing to do at all.

Thank goodness, bossie is gone and so I will leave now as well, almost in time, suprisingly.

I wish you all a very nice and relaxing weekend!!!

See you again next week,

Adelaide

Perhaps you should send your script to the people doing the comedy "The Office" . Here's the website link for your email: http://www.bbc.co.uk/comedy/theoffice/

Exactly! As soon as the second email came in, I stopped sweating . Now I'm so relaxed I have to be careful not to fall over backwards :shock:

Gute Seele, what you wrote about your colleague, and you covering the phone... tell me, why does it not surprise me? Print off a huge "I'll cover the switchboard during this trade fair Fri 3 pm - Sun 6 pm" on an A4 sheet of paper, stick it to some cardboard, and automatically lift it up into her direction as soon as she comes to you and opens her mouth.

Some things you simply don't need to know in life:

- A goldfish has a memory span of three seconds.
- "Dreamt" is the only English word that ends in the letters "mt."
- The name for Oz in the "Wizard of Oz" was thought up when the creator, Frank Baum, looked at his filing cabinet and saw A-N, and O-Z; hence the name "OZ". (nothing to do with Down Under then )
- "Stewardesses" is the longest word that is typed with only the left hand.

For more, have a look at:

I was actually considering a branding iron :twisted:

Maybe pain will help her remember ...

It could actually become a running gag in a sitcom on TV: In each episode she enters the office and everybody in the room yells simultaneously in her direction (without lifting their heads) Gute_Seele is responsible fro the switchboard from 3p.m. on ... And she would reply something like "Oh, good to know" and walk away ...

She is sweet - but I don't think she could manage her way out of a phone booth without getting lost

Panic over. She just sent me another email saying that s.th. had come up in the meantime , and she now can only speak to me on Monday.

Poor girl, it was probably her boss messing her around.

But it's annoying anyway.

Right girls, it's time for some [size=18][color=red]moral support[/color:ff04bee52c][/size:ff04bee52c]. I emailed these people last night re: interview; just got an email back saying they want to speak to me today at 12.15 pm :shock: . No prob, it's my lunchtime anyway, and I'll just nip back home to talk to them in peace.

YES, I knew it Guess what, my colleague from the reception desk just called me. "What happens with the switch board when I leave at 3 p.m.?"

I mean when she asked me the same on Friday January 19th, I told her that I am the stand-in from Friday 3 p.m. until Sunday 6 p.m. - during every trade show except Autumn fair.

I told her again on Friday January 26th - when she asked me the same question.

I also sent an e-mail twice in January to all colleagues that I am responsible for the switch board on the weekends from Friday 3 p.m. until Sunday 6 p.m. during all the trade shows except Autumn fair.

And I can bet on it - Friday April 27th (when the next trade show during a weekend takes place) she will ask me again

Maybe I should make her write it down 200 times ... do you think this might help?
