Aw, the day sucks...

Day five out of my comfort zone. Mostly it's not so bad. It's really the dealing with the employees that I have to learn. The part I hate the most. The meeting with my employee went okay. He got a bit defensive and tried to pass the buck, and we'll have to work on that. I did, however, chicken out on discussing one thing in particular.

The day sucks because Dan has been trying to build a screaming computer on which to do forensics, and he's run into one problem after another and he's got a case he desperately needs to process. That and payday is next Friday and we have to make sure payroll is covered and we're running out of days. Collecting money is not my department, but I'm directly affected because I'm the one who goes without if necessary.

You do ask Dan for advice, don't you?? Has this employee been 'trouble' before?

Good luck, and be nice, but firm on the collections. I know you can tell them that you won't do anymore work for them until past due balances are paid up, but then you take the chance of them finding someone else ...

Employees often have no idea of the stress employers endure and the sacrifices they make to keep a business running. Sometimes they seem to think the boss's reserves of energy, patience and cash are bottomless.
