how to screw up a promotion

This week I can't seem to get anything done at work. I feel weary every day and go home each night having achieved maybe half of the things on whatever list I compiled at the beginning of the day. Trouble is that my boss MsPlum is going skiing next week and so there really is a lot of stuff that has to get done by the end of this week.

Normally I'd chalk it up to a bad week and leave it at that, but next week I am putting in an application for a promotion that's come up recently. So just when I want to plaster the image of me being terribly efficient and genius-like all over my boss' mind, I am instead doing a half-assed job of pretty much every task I'm given.

Such is life.
