About Me

What is a PRG?? PRG is something someone started calling me long ago - almost in another lifetime. It stands for "Puerto Rican Goddess." Most days lately, I just feel like a Pretty Regular Girl. So this blog will journal my days as a PRG. Some days that will mean my adventures as a Puerto Rican Goddess; other days I'll just be a Pretty Regular Girl. I hope you can find entertainment in both.

A Less-Than-Stellar Day at Work

I will admit, I like for people to think of me as a happy person. Most of the time, I am really happy; sometimes, however, there are things I just have to get off my chest. Today is one of those days.

As probably anyone in a sales or service job knows, there are certain metrics and goals you must meet. In my position, those goals are used to (partially) determine our annual bonus.

I have been working my tail off since I got this promotion on December 15. We got a new CEO in April, and ever since then there has been increasing pressure put on my department to perform. Well, I found out today that, although I thought I was doing fine, a lot of my sales won't count!

I have yet to get a really good explanation as to why. Between my manager and his assistant, all I keep hearing is, "We'll get it figured out. Don't worry about it." Umm, sorry...I'm worried! If I miss out on this bonus, we won't have another one for a year. I'm trying not to get upset, but that's easier said than done.

So I'm sorry to be a Debbie Downer today. I just needed to vent for a minute and get that off my chest. I'm sure it will all work out. At least I hope so!

Oh, I'd be mad too! How can they tell you not to worry, of course you're going to worry, to do all that work and then be told it might not count. That's lame. Hopefully they decide to make it count in your favor.
