More of a mild, PG rant so I posted it here. Feel free to move this thread to a more appropriate place if need be.
Here at work I do a multitude of tasks for a variety of departments. I build & maintain our corporate website, design & layout sales literature & brochures, help with video projects, design various custom spreadsheets and small database projects, record & summarize various incomes on a daily basis, even printing high-quality pictures for various court cases.
Here’s my rant: in a report I sent out for February I said we had income of $1,007,653.96. An accountant sent out an e-mail a few ours later stating that in fact we had $1,006,756.09 of revenue, not my figure. Now the numbers I give are merely an advance notice of the official reports which are printed in a few weeks. I never guarantee that I am 100% accurate, but I would think that being 99.9% is damn close enough. I was overstated by $900 freakin dollars. The company isn’t going to fall apart becuase my little report wasn’t 100% on the nose.
Is this just an accounting thing that they are ultra-precise and overly anal about every little thing? Or is my paranoid mind right and he’s out to get me?
