Defending my Territory

I've mentioned before that my job gets very slow during our "off-season."

I'm not the only one that feels this pain, and this morning I was forced to play my selfish card. One of my co-workers was without work to do and quietly started doing some of mine without asking.

Whao! Back off.

I am very methodical about stretching my tasks to fill as much time as possible. I will not share. I cannot. Or I will go mad with boredom.

So I had to ask her not to do my work. I'm sorry if she has nothing to do, but if she does my stuff, then I will have nothing.

How sad is it that we have to fight over the few things that need to be done?

How many places have that problem? I would feel the same way if my work load was dwindling. But right now I have more than enough to do...although I'm having a hard time finding the motivation to do it. When will things pick up again for you?

Our "busy" season" is basically December through March, but it seems to have dropped off early this year. We have more down time than rush. Not a good equation, IMO.

Hmmm....I wonder what office you work in. :) I like trying to figure out what you people do.
