OK, so as I prepare to ready myself for CBL living in Boston, I feel the need to share this bit of bitchy nitpickery.

This morning, I woke up to 20 or so emails from CBL. Seems she'd done a bunch of work on her last flight from Boulder to Boston. Plugged in her computer and synced her mails. So, yes, my Saturday morning was greeted with much work mail.

Alas, I had already known I had to do work this weekend. I have a huge event coming up in Manhattan on Wednesday and there was lots of planning I needed to take care of prior. So, today, I settled in, booted up the 'puter and did a bunch of work. Much of which - because CBL likes to be involved in ALL and sundry decisions - involved me including CBL on the To: or CC: list.

Tonight I get this email: "Let's talk about this this week when I'm in the office. I still have 150 emails to respond to. No rest for the weary, I guess. SIGH."

Now, I'm sorry. But really? I am guessing that, as a VP, she makes SIGNIFICANTLY more than I do. And didn't I already deal with HER email flurry? So why, exactly, should I sympathise with her having to deal with emails in her inbox?

I realize that I need to quit bitchin as much as she does, but right now I am sooooo ticked off.
