It looks like most of supervising is motivating the phone goons and so forth, and manipulating sample and writing reports. I actually think I can do this. I went from terrified at the beginning of shift to actually kind of liking it by the end of the shift. The fact that the team on the two Yakovitch Catering projects utterly kicked butt as far as production went, did not hurt the attitude. (Cute Geek Super told me to run those two, with him over my shoulder, so I did so. Whee!)
I've also learned that the supervisory area is hazardous to sanity, and that the Check-In position is lucky in not having to share a computer with anyone else.
