Yeah, this week is rough. The company I work for rolled out a new product that displaces the previous product. And it's COMPLETELY different technology, knowledge requirements, support requirements, sales model, etc. I'm a solutions engineer, I generally work with customers to scope and architect their solution, but this week I am training account managers and sales people how to build and deploy a phone system just so they have hands on experience with it. It's painful. Plus I have to actually complete the training tasks as well!
On the other hand, no chores, free meals, and a quiet hotel room to work in...so it's really not all that brutal, it's just that I am a "things" person doing "people" person tasks, and that's draining for me.
Ok, I'll quit whining now because there are too many of you with real jobs that require real labor.
DH starts his new job on Monday...and then I get to train him on the very same product.
