Inside The RD Mailroom

Although I'm not the Book Review Editor, I do distribute the books that come in for review to our reviewers. Fortunately, I have several assistants who help me with the many Romance Diva related mailings I have to do. I thought you might like to see them in action. Or rather inaction.

My staff aren't exactly what you'd call early birds. It's hard to get them motivated. They nap a lot and try to hide from me. Sometimes they do both at the same time.

They also like to play dead, thinking I'll give them the day off.

When I finally get them up, I get dirty looks. (Cranky employees aren't that productive, let me tell you.)

Occasionally, I do get some work out of them.

But usually they pass out in the middle of a big project and I end up doing it on my own.

I thought about looking for a new staff, but it's hard to fire family. Plus, they're a fat bunch of snugglers and mama's babies. LOL

  1. You are tough on your employees. Everybody knows employees don't like to start work until 11:00 or noon and then work four day work weeks. And don't forget about half days on Friday.

    I guess it's a good thing I'm not in charge, I'd go bankrupt.

  2. They look pretty tough to handle. And there is the Snuggle Factor they got going on. SF has been known to be addictive. =)

  9. Kristen, I have an assistant too - she likes to take over the keyboard at times, though she needs a brush up on her spelling!

  10. Oh my lord I'm jealous. Tell them to get to work, they don't get paid for their good looks.

    I have a treat drying for them. I didn't want it to get moldy in the mail. Although I can't guarentee they'll work better afterwards.
