Mid-State Orange, Odds

Today was one of those…days…*sigh* I wish I wouldn’t let things have such an impact on me, but they do. I won’t bore you with the details but it was regarding a client at work. That same client I had previously mentioned (and I am too tired to retrieve the past post). Anyways this client had come to be a rather difficult client and it was handed to me…Well because a co-worker didn’t want to deal with the person she would have to deal with, but I accepted it because I do love challenges (not really). I was doing just fine, had no problems, but this month after it left my hands we seemed to have some production issues. So I, being the little brown noser that I am…Well actually just to cover my ass because I didn’t want to get blamed for anything that was not my fault when the shit hit the fan. So I went to the boss and pointed out the date I sent the file to be printed, and she said she noticed and in no way thought I was the cause of the hold up. GREAT! You would think…But today the client called and informed us that they were going elsewhere.


But as if that wasn’t enough…The other boss calls me and my co-worker who previously worked with this client and basically just blames us for loosing the client!!! Are you serious? Because last time I checked I don’t make nearly enough money to actually be that detrimental and cause a client to go elsewhere. So I am not sure who’s check he is signing but it isn’t mine…Yeah so it might be time to start looking for a new job because that is quite honestly BS, he knows it, I know it, and the rest of the office knows it too.

Ok now on to the music!!! Mid-State Orange recently came out with their first full length album, Odds, which was released in July 2006. The three gents who make up this band hail from Melbourne,Victoria, Australia. Their debut album was released on Candle Records and they certainly haven’t gotten a lot of attention which is such a shame, so here are a couple of my choice tracks for your listening pleasure…Good night, good morning, and to some good afternoon. :)

    Sorry to hear about your crappy difficult pain in the bootie (spelled like hootie) client. People can really suck sometimes. But you don’t, because you continue to post great new music! Thanks.

    Oh dear. Oh my. Been there, done that, I fear. Sounds to me like the boss who chewed you out is scared that he/she might be to blame, so in turn is slamming you and co-worker. You know the oh-so-fragrant saying: shite flows downhill…

    Hang in there, let the dust settle, then figure out what to do. If you care enough and are so minded, you could even assess what you think went wrong and propose how to prevent it in the future. Then you might emerge as some sort of process reengineering hero, yay!

    In the meantime, I send you visions of dancing armadillos, prancing gaily and insouciantly in a celebration of all that is not car, client, work, or LA-related.

    Can I help make you smile too?

    Erm, well, I can’t sing or dance, so a musical number is out of the question

    All my joke are rehashed copies. Plus I always forget the punchline, so that’s a no-go.

    And I know no talented animals so can’t even begin to compete with Fil.

    So howabout, a big hug across the internet ocean that seperates us but allows us some small kind of communication.

    You know the great thing about shit days?

    They end and a brand new great one starts and takes away the bad memory.

    Have a great day today : )

    I’m a bit behind the times posting this comment but just wanted to say I hope today is going a lot better for you. It wasn’t nice reading about what you were having to put up with, so actually experiencing it must have been truly horrible. Some people…

    Lovely music though. You never seem to let us down with that, even in the midst of such rubbish days. You work miracles.

    *blushes* Awww I don’t know about miracles, I wish I had those capabilities…Thank you to you both I can’t stop smiling, the rotten day is so long forgotten. :)
