Ah, yes, good communication is so wonderful. Someone gives me some stuff, telling me to tag it but not to edit it. Two hours later, I hear via my boss that that person's boss said, "Ignore all of that. We need to proofread this."
This project gets some benefit of the doubt since it really is a pilot project, so people are pretty unsure just how to proceed. Still, it doesn't seem communication is happening as well as it should. If this continues, I might revise my opinion about possibly getting a job here after my contract expires.
So, in another 15 minutes or so, the co-worker and I will get some direction on proofreading these printouts. Umm, I don't think she has any proofreading experience. This should be interesting.
