I will give the recap for the day and then retire to peruse the mail you sent today.
Today was the first day the new assignments for the Rec cops actually counted, since my new boss was out yesterday. So I spent much of today truly playing Radar
to his Col. Henry Blake
. My new boss is the previously mentioned "Bible Thumper
", reservist, and boxer who likes to think of West Virginia as a Southern state.
He has set the style that it is okay for me to "handle" all the paperwork, even to the point that since he did not drop off the innate orders today, he had me take them back and hold them on my desk till he comes in at 12:30 PM tomorrow when, like the ever trusty clerk, I will bring them to him, and be sure to head off to deliver them to the proper place. It must be done by a staff member.
So from 12:30 to 3:30 PM I essentially bounced back and forth between the tool room and the Rec cop's office getting paper work initiated and phone calls placed. Not very intellectually challenging, but it kept the forward motion going.
