So, the company I work for sometimes does Brownfields grant work as we do environmental engineering services. Brownfields are blighted properties/areas that the EPA awards grants out to (to counties and cities) so that they can redevelop these properties via environmental cleanup. A lot of the time they are old manufacturing facilities, auto service stations, etc. Places that have likely had some level of environmental contamination.

Anyway, a request for proposal came out the first part of December, giving us a month to respond to it with a statement of qualifications. It was due today and it was a LOT of work to convey why we're the best firm to do the work.

Well, my boss was gone for just under two weeks at Christmas time and put off fooling with it much at all until this past Tuesday. I should NOT be pulling content for this thing the day before it's due, that should be...

time for editing and double-checking stuff.

If we missed the 2pm deadline, we wouldn't get considered for the work.

Not to mention, he kept trying to make me come up with content for him at the last minute and it was making me so mad.

I was so un-busy last week, he could have taken a little time to give me some direction so I could get it going more while he was gone. He was doing some work things from afar, but not this thing.

Am I out of line for being mad that I've spent all week absolutely busting my ass when this proposal came out a month ago and we knew about it this whole time?

This is by far NOT all I do.

On an additional note, my boss flew home for the holidays, so don't tell me he didn't have time when he was on a plane to review this thing and start thinking about it.

You are not out of line. That's a pretty clear case of bad management.

He's not an asshole or a bad guy at all, but is too "aloof", if you catch my drift.

Oh, he also thanked me for being "on top of my game", lol.

I was going to have a word with him about this one, but it looks like he knows it wasn't good, so I'll let it be. I was short with him a bit yesterday and apparently he actually did notice.
