Definition of jobs

Standard

Yesterday, the backup front desk person (L) had to go home because she was not feeling well. The main person was out on vacation. A person who currently works in the business office used to share the front desk and occasionally takes over duties when needed (A). So L went down the hall to ask this person’s boss (M) if she could sit at the front desk for the day. The conversation went something like this (second-hand, mind you).

L: Can A sit out at the front desk for the day? I have to go home.

M: Ok, if she wants to and doesn’t have any classes. *thinks* If she has classes, what about ROBYN?

L: Robyn??

M: Well, I saw her sitting up there the other day.

L: She..was..fixing X’s computer…

M: Oh, well what about Karin (my co-worker)?

L: She just likes to sort the mail…occasionally.

M: Oh, well. OK.

I’m totally going to add front desk/fish-stamper responsibilities to my job card.

And, if I sit at the Director’s desk, does that mean I can do his job, too? What about the accountant or HR people?

  1. Haha. Let’s break into the White House and sit at the President’s desk for a few minutes, shuffle some papers, maybe make a call to a friend on the Big Phone.
    Perhaps someone will suggest we run the country.
    Actually, we may not even have to do anything in the first paragraph.
