Why is it okay to interrupt my lunch?
For pity’s sake, I’m a contractor. I’m on a clock. My lunch hour is my own time. And, yet, people seem okay with completely trodding all over that and shoving work on me durning my time. Why is that?
Yesterday, it was someone who insisted on talking to me about nothing after obviously interrupting my lunchtime reading. Well, not quite nothing, but something that sure wasn’t as important as my personal time!
Today, someone wanted a file restored, but had to stand and watch me select the damn thing. He couldn’t have sent me an e-mail with the file path. Or, actually put in a ticket in the Helpdesk app. Oh, no! That would require effort on their part. And, a certain amount of consideration for their co-workers, so that just won’t do.
Ah, well, I guess I’ll just have to start leaving the building at lunch, now that the weather has gotten better.
