argh.

This morning I got to print out a financial statement about 10 times because the two people working on it kept changing their minds as to formatting ("Does it look better to put the last column along the right margin or should we put it in a random place and have lots of empty space on one side of the page? I don't know! I'll keep changing my mind until I go back to what my receptionist did the very first time that looked the best but that I told her to change because I don't think things through! Oh, and it needs to have the draft watermark on it. No, not that draft watermark, the one you didn't know about.") and placement of some of the numbers ("Change this one digit. Wait, now the addition is off by $1. Add the dollar here. Wait, now that throws off my other work, take the dollar off there and add it here. Oh, I did this number wrong it needs to be fixed.") All the while interdispersed with "this needs to be done by 11am, is it done yet?!?" Which of course, it would be if they would just make their minds up FIRST and get me to print it SECOND. Also, we would waste a lot less paper.

argh.
