Laying Low

Oh, gees. I've been through a few audits and have always come up clean.  Not so, yesterday. Ugh.  Auditor Guy found a doozy of a mistake that I made.  Of course, payroll has been effin' it up all year and I was sure that was going to be the auditing nightmare, but nope....it was me. 

Okay, so everyone comforted me by telling me of their own auditing busts, reassured me with "That's their job--to find mistakes,"....but still.....I'm a tad battle weary and it's only Day One. 

Problem is that now they are making me pull a larger sample to check my work.  So, yeah, it's gonna be a busy day and I'm really, really hoping that the brain was working on all those other files.  Yikes.

Yeah, me.

I'm gonna be hiding under my desk in the cube, hoping they don't find me....or more mistakes.

I get audited all the time too. It bites. I feel your pain.

Marg said...

Oh gosh, so sorry. That stinks but today will be better. Good idea, just hide under a bush. Who is that, it isn't Hobbes or Grace. Try to have a good day.

Audits of any kind suck.... even if they are done to correct mistakes.... they are tine consuming, frustrating, and make a person want to pull their hair out. Hope today is better for you.. xox

We've all been there. No fun. But crawl out from under your desk and face the world with your usual smile!

Sharkbytes said...

Aw, Lin- so sorry. Keep your chin up.

Patty Woodland said...

With all of the uproar that has gone on in the place mistakes are bound to happen. We all make them. We are all human.


OMG! Have I discovered your OTHER secret?!

Duni said...

I've been there! I feel your pain :/

Grace said...

As everyone has said - mistakes happen and once you know about them you fix them and move on and try never to make the same mistake again...knowledge is power.

Willow said...

Oh boy ~ sending wishes of stress relief .

Don't sweat the petty things and don't pet the sweaty things.

Is that Henry hiding in the hostas?

BeadedTail said...

Uh oh! Oh well, if there weren't mistakes, there wouldn't be auditors so you're keeping them employed and helping the economy so yay you!

Ann said...

aw sorry it's been a stressful day. You go hide till the end of the week. I won't tell them where you are

Lin said...

DG--It has been ugly. Although the auditors have been pleasant enough. You have to laugh with them...or I'm gonna cry.

Marg--Good eye, Marg! That is Henry--our cat that we lost before Hobbes came. He died when he was only 3. :(

Diane--It has been a very long week. I'm glad it is a short one.

Vanilla--I took your advice and was cracking up with the auditors today. I figure that this is only going to make me a better...uh....401(k) person...????

Sharkey--Trying. I'm pooped.

Patty--I sort of figured that out today--I have a lot of chaos around my desk sometimes and it is a wonder I can think at all. I shall blame that. ;) Not a frog, although I would like webbed toes for swimming laps!

Duni--I needed those hugs!

Grace--That's how I viewed it too--after it all settled. I just hope we don't find more!

Willow--I need those wishes!

Chuck--Good eye, Chuck! That is our Henry. Gosh, I miss that boy. He was a really great cat.

Beaded Tail--Yeah, that's not working for me! Hahaha! This has been really rough. And the more they dig, the more work it is for me. Ugh.

Ann--Thanks, pally! This has NOT been fun!

Oh, that sucks... Not that you didn't already know that. Perfect time for a hobo getaway. I think you'll have to stow away to Georgia since I have to carry to many meds to run. They'll catch us by following the pill shaking noises. :-D

Good luck pally, it'll be over soon. You can handle it. Rock on.
