Today is serving as one big, fat reminder of why I'm searching for a new job. Our assistant director, my former immediate supervisor, called a meeting for yesterday afternoon at 2:30. The meeting was to include said assistant director, my current supervisor, and me, and we were to discuss information for a meeting at 9:00 tomorrow we all have with an external department. As of right now, 10:00 the morning following the planned 2:30 meeting, we still have not met, and it's entirely because my assistant director has a habit of scheduling meetings and deciding randomly not to show. He has been doing it as long as I've been here, and before he promoted, so it's not even like he's just overwhelmed by his new position. This time, he didn't even tell us he wasn't going to make it until over an hour after it was set to begin. He hasn't mentioned it this morning, so I have no way of knowing when/if we're going to meet.
It's fucking ridiculous, and this type of shit is just a microcosm of the dysfunction in this place. This type of stuff happens all the time, and it really kills our work quality and morale. We all end up stressed and short on time due to the fact that this experienced "manager" can't get his shit straight.
