I’m in the middle of putting out fires and I’ve had to clear my schedule to deal with the latest crisis. Teresa: Can I help? Adrian: I wish you could. With the new layoffs, I feel like I’m being pulled in several directions at once. As soon as I feel like I’m making headway with one problem, I get another thrown at me. Teresa: I know exactly what you mean. I always feel like it’s crunch time around here because we’re so shorthanded. Adrian: I’m so tired of everything being urgent all the time and needing attention ASAP. I long for the days when projects had timelines and people followed them. I’ve got to go. Teresa: Hey, when are we going to have that meeting? Adrian: As soon as things quiet down. Teresa: When will that be? Adrian: I’ll let you know as soon as the latest disaster has been averted.
