Lead Engineer vs Graduate

You know what's the difference between these two?

1. Lead engineer is supposed to LEAD, not to approach the Grad with puzzled face asking for directions on how to review drawings or respond to site team queries.
2. Lead engineer has the right to delegate - but delegation does not mean that you wash your hands off the issues. And it certainly does not mean that you can sit back and wait for things to happen on its own.
3. Lead engineer is supposed to make the Grad's life easy, while the Grad will do her best to make you look good (that was the working mode, until the recent change). If the lead try to make himself look good without 1st making the Grad's life easy, beware of disasters - ain't no free lunch in this world, aye.
4. Lastly, of course, the paycheck.

(I guess by now you know what kind of lead engineer I have.)
(Also you should understand the reason for my recent craving for food + weight gain which then leads to the need for more gym sessions.)

Came back from JB trip.
Very tired.
Spilled coffee, dropped a pack of milk onto floor.
Didn't do much whole day, except of trying to listen to stories.

Tired. Flying is tiring.

Today... no good ah...

2 banks forcing me to visit them physically in order to get things done.
Issuing the 3rd cheque for my colleague just to pay RM 130 for his stay in company bungalow. (The part that I hate the most is, I have to go to the bank physically to cancel the cheque that he lost.)
My "brilliant" agent sent me auction property info via fax while I'm out of office. (Not sure what my boss/colleagues would think when they see those stuff.)
Cough starting to develop.
Wasted one whole morning in a meaningless meeting.

Perhaps the only good thing is - my senior took over most of my extra "work" that my lead engineer decided to make me do. Very thankful for that, even though I know my learning curve will slow down, but I assure you, having more than 3 packages/items that I am completely new to is destined to be disaster.
