Stormy

I rode my bike home in a massive rainstorm this evening. It felt great.

My job has improved. "Norm" has relaxed a bit and we've developed a give-and-take that I feel comfortable with.

I've gotten a good look at the amazing amount of time he wastes in uncertainty and self-reassurance. It's like the information-worker version of OCD which would make another person re-check three times that the front door is really locked. In Norm's case, it shows itself in a verbal tic of his: beginning an inordinate number of sentences with "Like I said..." and "Again..."

Now that I understand him a little better, I feel much more capable of taking over his job--because I might waste time, but I don't waste it like that. I've tackled several minor issues and assisted on several bigger ones now, and I think we're both feeling more sanguine about the transfer of duties.

Besides, today I didn't have a single minute to check my personal email till 4:00, and everything I was busy with I knew exactly how to do, so I must be getting into the groove of it.
