But sometimes on my current job and many others, that's the answer. I try not to be blunt about it, but it's there. The temp has not the access or clout to take care of certain things. Case in point: someone trying to use the company website today to enter dogs into a show and not doing it. Said person could not do it after pointedly not reading the notice on Page 1 of the entry form saying (in bold) "Important Notice - Please Read," followed by notes that are -- guess what! -- important. But her not reading the key info there? Apparently my fault. Whatever.
In MUCH nicer work news, I'm helping to straighten out a customer's problem. Several companies put on dog shows. I'm temping for one of them. Yesterday we got entries, for a show with its entry deadline tomorrow, for a show run by another one. Several phone calls and one e-mail (so far) later, we're sorting it out, and I have a very happy customer. She thanked me for helping it get this close to being solved. And remember, I'm doing this for someone who's not actually a customer of this company's, at least at this moment.
I definitely didn't want to say "That isn't my job." And, thank goodness, I didn't have to.
