I am going to have to rest up this weekend. The bank has one mail guy. He's a one man department with no backup. He reports to my boss. Mail guy's wife is expecting a baby and it is due December 1. He was to take the first two weeks of December as vacation. My boss developed a plan on Thursday to take care of mail delivery. Well, yesterday, Mail Guy told me that his wife is having problems and they are going to take the baby this Monday. So, he'll need to take the next two weeks as vacation. My boss and I went into a panic. I am going to have to go to two post offices and get 5 P. O. Boxes of mail. When I get back, my coworkers will sort it and then everyone will come get their department's mail. The maintenance man will get the local outgoing and run it through the postage meter. I will drop it off at the post office on my way home. Wednesday, my coworkers and the maintenance man will be off on vacation, so I have to do it all by myself. Hopefully my regular work will be slow that day. I hope everything goes well. We are all team players and we have to work as a team. Of course, Queenie was suggesting that another department do the mail. That didn't go over very well with my boss.
