I think I pulled a work-induced muscle. Is it possible to strain the muscle in your forearm by clicking a mouse? I haven't worked that muscle this hard in a long time. My arm isn't used to this kind of activity. It really hurts.
The spreadsheet I'm working on is 20,000 plus lines long. And do you know what I have to do with this spreadsheet? Go LiNe by lInE to determine what's changed from last week to this week. =O When Michelle was training me, she told me that it takes a lot of patience, but DANG. I called her over to my desk a little while ago to make sure I understood the procedure correctly. "Am I really required to do what I think I have to do?!" She looked at me with sad, puppy dog eyes and shook her head in the affirmative. She then explained why she hardly had a Thanksgiving and Christmas vacation. Shortly after, I texted T.G. "I don't think I can do this. I'd rather jump out of a window. I'm only on line 600! OMG! How am I going to do this?!" After he calmed me down, Michelle added that the report will no longer be this long. Instead of 21,000 lines, I'll only be dealing with 6,000. Mmm. Great. Or is it? Yes, 6K is drastically lower than 21K but too long is TOO LONG! So I hear that they're trying to automate this variance report. Well, how long has she been waiting!?!?!? What's the due date?! How much progress have they made?! Cuz I will NOT ruin my forearm muscles nor go insane for this report! In what world do you need to individual go through anything to highlight the changes from one week to the next? And if I pass out, what good will I be to them?
we need a change.
