Quit Bugging Me

Dear Diary,

Mid-February we received an e-mail instructing all employees that we have to attend mandatory Bank Secrecy Act training on a quarterly basis.  The e-mail was sent February 11th and stated that we had until March 7th to complete the training.

My boss had her secretary send the e-mail to us and also instructing us to please notify her which class we will be signing up for.  For today's entry I would like to re-live the timeline with you.  Watch what the Secretary does and how I finally can't take it anymore.

Date: February 12th, 7:11 AM
From: Boss
"Please register for and complete one of the sessions.  It is mandatory.  Thanks."

Date: February 12th, 4:30 PM
From: Secretary
"Pls don't forget to give me your dates for this Mandatory BSA Training.  Thanks!"

Date: February 13th, 11:08 AM
From: Secretary
"Just a friendly Reminder Per [Boss]..
If you want me to register you, pls give me your emp. # and the date you prefer.

At this point I had it with her e-mails hounding me.  I have until March 7th and she wants me to sign up hours after I get the e-mail from Corporate Compliance.  I was not going to have it any more.  I'm trying to get our 10-K table done and other year-end reports...here's my response.

Date: February 13th, 11:11 AM
From: Mattrix
"You're sending lots of reminders.  Were we supposed to pick a date already?  Because we have until March 7th to get this done right?

I'm too busy to pick a date right now, but I'll let you know when I do."

I was going for the shut-up and leave me alone e-mail, but in a professional manner as best I could at the time.  Also, I went ahead and signed up right after I sent my e-mail, but I did not tell her about it for a few days.  I wanted her to sweat over it for a few days.
