Green Room - Week 18 - Day 5

My boss has a habit of not actually saying something, and then whenever anyone asks her a question getting *really* annoyed because she *has explained it* to you...

For awhile, I actually thought I was *really* spacing out or just somehow missing important clues, until I compared notes with my coworkers and we all realized, no, unless all of us were missing *exactly the same thing*, there were gaps that she just wasn't filling in.

Of course, *especially* when people band together and mention this, that just makes her angry. So you really can't win.

Much like Idol.

Well, at least in Idol *one person* ends up winning...

A gap for you to fill in is your Topic entries, and you fill them in over here: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1014004.html

Everyone is partnered up: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1_IrAytsdt66JR_PFMBqI2rxVR4VbWUWqnWip877U7nw/edit#gid=0 although there was a drop that will end up impacting the polls, and maybe make life a little more interesting in a week that should already be pretty interesting!

I don't necessarily think it's a good thing when I'm first, especially this late in the morning, but I am happy to take what I can get.

Your boss seems to be a bit addlepated. I'm pretty sure there's no cure for that. (Kindle doesn't believe that addlepated is a word, but dictionary.com does, and I, from personal experience, absolutely do.)

Addlepated IS a word! I prefer twitterpated myself though...

Some people lack awareness of what things they only say inside their head.

That's why having a beta reader is a good idea. :)

I was really sorry to find out about that drop. :(


Communication! It's the key that fits so many locks!

That's a sign of a personality problem, in addition to the inability to discuss things coherently outside of your own head. :(

What's worse is when that kind of manager expect you to take action-- and accomplish!--based on the vague thing they didn't fully communicate. :O

Otherwise known as "the voices in your head are too loud."

Haha!

Well, I wasn't thinking of that so much as, muddled/distracted thinker and someone with a tendency to ramble. ;)
