October 23, 2017: Frustrations

Monday.  Today was a very busy day on MangoLassi and Spiceworks.  Tons of conversations.  My time is a bit confusing right now as I’m running this new company, but they aren’t clear if they can pay me yet.  They are promising me pay, but not coming through with anything and none of the plans that they made are coming to fruition.  They wanted me back in Arizona, but then didn’t have me come out.  They decided to get rid of the people in Arizona, but haven’t actually done anything.  They are definitely not communicating and it is getting really stressful.  It’s really hard to be an effective boss when most of the staff never works, and the owners are both lazy and insane.  It’s already become crystal clear that they don’t have any idea what they are doing and are bleeding money like crazy but don’t have the first idea what to do about it and have so much pride that listening to anyone is something they’d never do.  It’s so easy to turn the company around, but there seems to be no interest in actually getting anything done.  Argh.

We watched more of 24 tonight.  I’m invested so am going to finish the season.  But I’m not very impressed.  It’s mildly entertaining, but all of it is bad.  The writing, the characters, the acting.  None of it really works.
