Recently Discovered Modified Work

So I'm out smoking, and one of the Supers asks me about the Playbook Project. For those who don't know, Playbook is EarthLink's internal website (no, you guys can't get there), and the customer service section of it (my division) is out of date, so a select few of us are recoding it. Needless to say, this means that A)most people don't have any idea WHAT I am doing everyday, and B)the few that do are making requests of me everyday for stuff they want on it. ANYWAY...this supervisor starts asking me if we are going to add this or that, and then goes on to tell me about a link sent out by the project head, wanting people's input on it, and how she hates certain aspects of it. After a couple minutes, I realize she is referring to the section I got done with right before I left for vacation! Add to that, some of the things she is referring to, I DIDN'T PUT IN IT!

We get back inside, I ask her to send me that link, and when I look at it, there is my work, modified and slightly changed. Unfortunately, the changes are such that the javascript popups no longer pop up where they are supposed to, and the color scheme is hideous, since some colors were changed and others not. Long story short, it sucks.

Now I know I was gone. And I know that these things happen in a corporate structure. But to not even tell me (and I had been working on it for several weeks) that the scheme I had programmed would be changed, and then to change it but not correctly and not tell me when I returned, that's just wrong. A lot of work went into that. Honestly, if I wasn't trying to use this project to try and go on to better things in the company (or elsewhere), I'd prolly just not try too hard to get the rest of it done, or put much quality work into it.

I'm pissed right now. And this is on top of finding out that the Nick Cave show was cancelled. Glad I'm going home in a few minutes...
