Im haveing a BAD day. My boss is on leave and he has left a guy in his place who doesnt do a thing. this morning i was here at 7 and while i was busy doing my bosses work (that the stand in guy should be doing) he was out chatting to the mechanics over coffee. I was supposed to get paid today but the bank has lost my money and i got a new kitten that my other cats hate. i cant sleep i feel like im going to throw up and im going to cry now.

Hi Buffs,
Sorry to hear you're having such a frustrating day. Sounds like the new guy isn't too capable, but he won't be around for long. Have a quick, short, sharp cry, then get on with work and life. The new kitten will probably fit in soon --- the others just have to remind you who's boss.
And speaking of boss --- as Q says, why not stop doing your boss's work for his stand-in, and leave it to him ? Maybe ask a few pleasant but well placed questions to remind him that there is stuff to do. And Carolyn's right about bullying the bank --- we have some of the most expensive banking in the world, and some of the least competent.
