Feeding the fourth estate

I am incandescent with rage. For weeks now I've been banging on at Julia and T.Aldous that we need to put an update on the state of play of Catty Library on the web site so please could they tell me something about it. With nil result. In the end, I got so embarassed about not updating that information for three months that I bullshitted something up and published it at the beginning of last week.

Imagine my delight, then, to find lying about by the fax machine copies of two articles about the new, improved library that were published - with pictures - in November. They can get the Catty Examiner in for a preview but they can't be arsed to pass any information on to their own bloody staff.

Single team working? My arse.

I've also found that banging on has been a rather fruitless activity. Bribes often work better and can be as cheap as a frothy coffee or a bar of chocolate. I wish someone had told me this in my 20's, I'd be an executive by now if I'd realised. ho hum.

Given the difference in pay scale between myself and my managers I'm not inclined to reward their bad behaviour.
