@iarebridezilla:  I would just start sending her the content first for approval and then spend the time on making it look fabulous!

I know exactly what you mean. Not the same, but I have to make spreadsheets daily. We make them the day before and have this whole schedule/list printed out.

 

I MAKE THEM FREAKING GORGEOUS. Like, frame that. It’s awesome. The color coding? The organization? PERFECT. It’s like my calling. Then somehow, I will go home and come back the next day and…. Everything is ruined. I’ll have a bright colored theme, or a holiday colored theme, and right in the middle someone will have added a new part of the schedule…. in puke green. Like, what? And everything will be off by one line. Also, it won’t be in the proper place, which then CONFUSES EVERYONE EVER and ruins EVERYONE’S DAY.

 

Seriously. It’s all I have. Just let me make it perfect and leave it perfect.

@iarebridezilla:  Right??? It would be a huge deal if someone effed up the original Starry Night or the Mona Lisa. It’s pretty much the same thing. 

 

JUST LET ME DO MY JOB AND MAKE IT BEAUTIFUL.

I hate when this happens. I’ve made some nice stuff before, only to have a coworker/group member change it to freaking Comic Sans or some ish.

@iarebridezilla:  ugh. I feel the pain. My boss is not a very competent writer and is also a micro-manager. She has me write out all professional letters, emails, and correspondance then proceeds to go through and change basically eveything…

She says it’s because we work with the elderly and ‘they can’t understand complex sentences” etc. I am offended on our patients’ behalf 99% of the time and then I need to sit there and nod…

@iarebridezilla:  Honstly in a world of polished and professional presentations, I like to see the funny, stupid clip art.
