Up an at’em before the alarm clock again. I am really liking this. Makes me almost feel like my old self.
I learned today that some of my co-workers are following my blog, kudos. However, keep in mind that I say whatever comes to mind at the time in my journal and working through my emotional ups and downs. I am direct in what I say, I don’t mention individuals, and is no way black and white on how I feel about someone. Just what I felt at that moment.
Apparently one of my journal entries were brought to someone’s attention and it hurt their feelings. It isn’t because the individual was mentioned by name, but the fact that they knew it was written about them at the moment. Yes, they knew about the blog I write, not just here but the Woodbury Patch as well.
This blog isn’t designed to hurt anyones feelings in any way, that is why I protect people’s privacy by not mentioning names or the use of a first name with permission from that individual. I did assure that individual that I have written many positive things about them as well, again not by name.
Now that I know that there are co-workers following my journal, I will only share my feelings and not individual actions that occur at work. I don’t want them looking at people and wonder who I am speaking of and assuming a situation and entertaining gossip. Again, this isn’t meant to be directed to anyone or meant to hurt another’s feeling. The person in question has my utmost respect and believe them to be awesome 90% of the time. The other 10% is based on individual situations and my mood at that moment.
With that being said,
Freedom of speech with respect to privacy is a stamp of approval.
I just relayed everything that happened in the past 24 hours to Mario. Told him instead of thinking it is a disaster, he should be thanking me as I not only handled the situation, but did damage control. This is only a speed bump, not a setback. The business will remain opened and people are moving into place. I am forever grateful to our administrative assistant and driving instructor/my right hand. Without them, there is no way this business would be standing. Those who put in blood, sweat and tears to build this business will be growing with it.
What is that saying? Get Rich or Die Trying.
Today my mood is bright. My seedlings and seeds are on their way You will think I was Farmer Brown when it is all said and done. Even contacted Home Depot about possibly installing a fence around the house. Even if we can’t do it this year, it will definitely be next year. Budget for the things we need/want. If we can’t afford it, we don’t buy it. Definitely not settling for something inferior just to have it, saving for the best.
So, why do I get a call from the driving instructor after he got off the phone with Mario? Basically Mario blamed him for this situation. Really? He didn’t steal the files, money, not answer the phones, not work on the files, etc. He did his part – drive. Mario acted like the sun disappeared with her termination; as if the business would fail now. Why would it? This is a blessing in disguise. Damage control before we had 100 files sitting on a desk collecting dust because she isn’t doing the work and running off with the money.
Then he had enough nerve to ask how the phone bill and were going to get paid? You aren’t mad about her taking the money, but you are questioning how the bills are going to get paid. Seriously? Then, who is going to be at the office and answer the phones? She was hardly in the office and clearly wasn’t answering the phones while she was there based on the number of voicemail messages and witnesses to the fact. Guess having the phone forwarded to someone who will answer the phone isn’t good enough.
He reminds me of the bunny smacking its head on the desk. He should be smacking his head right now instead of blaming others for the situation. If anything, he should be placing the blame on himself for not having more people trained on the job function and not putting her in her place when she got out of hand. Stop making excuses for someone and open your eyes to what is really going on.
It is already noon and I still have not eaten my breakfast: oatmeal. Guess breakfast will become lunch. I am not sure where this energy is coming from, but I certainly hope I don’t crash.
I bought a new power cord for the Galaxy Tablet; the cat ate the last one. Now I have to bring the tablet and the new cord to Best Buy and figure out what is wrong. It won’t turn on or it isn’t charging. Not sure if it the tablet or the cord. The tablet is still fairly new as it was a gift for my birthday in August. Bummer. I LOVE my tablet as it does a lot of things that my computer can’t even do.
I swear when I got home I was ready to hit the sheets. I am just exhausted physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
I reflected on the events of today while laying in my comfy bed. I actually felt an emotion besides anger today. I actually felt remorseful about hurting my direct reporting manager’s feelings, and awed that someone from where I worked even followed my blog. Normally I am emotionally numb outside of bursts of anger or when I find happiness with my grandchildren, child, etc.
I fell into a deep sleep.
