Work Stuff...

I was given a new job to do this week at the roofing company that I'm temping for. It seems like no matter what I do, even if it's the letter of what I've been told to do, I somehow do it wrong. Bleh.

So, this time I was told to start calling all the customers they've done work for recently and make sure the job was done and that they were happy with the work completed. I automatically assumed this meant builders too and not just homeowners, because no specifications were made. He said /all/ the customers. So, I did. Then I got asked if I called one of the builders. I said yes and was promptly told not to do it again.

I wish that people would stop giving me conflicting orders/requests. It's very frustrating, especially for someone that has incredibly low self-esteem and hates, hates, hates thinking they've done something wrong, even though I did what I was told.

Grumble!

There's the problem, one which I had at my workplace too. Assuming a boss meant what he said. So now when ever I have to assume something about some instructions I just go back and ask. My assumption is rarely right. I attribute it to common sense not being common. Especially when dealing with management. Maybe this will help eliminate some troubles at your workplace. Hope things get better for you.
