Yesterday, I was assigned 500 lines of data entry to complete. The person who was assigning it kept 500 lines to complete herself, and gave 500 lines to the receptionist. She told us that she would check with us this afternoon to see whether it seemed like we would be able to finish by the end of the day Thursday.
I scoffed. I vowed that I would be completely done before she asked this afternoon.
Right now, I'm looking at line 314. Despite the cramps in my shoulder from sitting in the same position and hitting the same keys over and over for hours, I may not finish today.
But I saw something at lunch that tempered my disappointment. The receptionist is on line 84.
Okay, she probably had a ton more distractions than I did, I'm giving her the benefit of the doubt, blah blah blah I win!
