Boss asked last week if I'd mind helping settle a new lender in this week - show her the programs we use, let her sit in on interviews etc. I did point out that the other lender in my branch is on holidays and I'd be rather busy but he insisted that she would sit quietly. Well fat chance of that - of course she has questions, I would too in her place. Not only has she sat in on interviews but I've helped her get her passwords set up, we've worked out which programs she still needs access to, we have her uniform order in place... and I've got none of my own work done *sigh*. Three more days of it, but it should start getting better. I showed her how to access our main lending program, and got her logged into a spare computer on a desk just outside my office, and tomorrow she's going to have a fiddle around with a couple of loan applications she has already taken.
The rotten icing on the cake was when I got to the main bus station just as it went into lockdown due to an electrical fire. No buses in or out for over half an hour - it could have been a lot worse, I know, but I was tired and just wanted to go home :-(
