Sigh....................................

Gotta love public humiliation, always a chance to behave gracefully and try to save face without a meltdown.  No one had said anything to me about a fail  at work,, the person that is my coach was all hugs and smiles and positive and telling me how...

Got through Hump day...phew!!

Yesterdy.........um, ya. I guess I am going to have those kind of days. When I look back I find myself shaking my head wondering why I have allowed my life to take the path it has. I know it is my choice in the long run how I react to lifes little...

working through it, one day at a time

I had a conversation with the foster Mother yesterday(out of the blue if I may add) she sought me out actually. She started the conversation with generalities about Litle Mr., About how he was experiencing some anger issues and how he had admitted to...

Bring on the rest of the week

Hello and good morning!  I am now in my 4th week of the on the floor training and although it is getting a litle easier to understand, it is by no means, easy. Especially when you have incredibly angry people wanting to holler at someone, and you are...

Is it really Monday already

I finally got a shower in, uffda. I was so beat yesterday, I fell asleep, green feets and all. Yes, I tend to kick the shoes off and go barefoot in the grass, easier to wipe the puppy presents off my feets, than it is the shoes.  I had the other...

finally done for the day!

I was sitting here this morning, enjoying that coffe that had my name on it and the other half walks out the door, now where the hell was he going?  He comes back in a bit later with a 3 ft section of...tadaaa, mulberry treetrunk. Seems he saw it...

I will win this one!

Before work yesterday, I started on a few of the items around here that I needed to get to. One btw, was started by the other half and I attempted to finish..You do see the "attempted" in there. Well, me and power tools isnt necessarily a good thing....

OT, ya baby

I went in today and did my first OT with this new job I am in. Interesting. I found out that it doesnt matter what day it is, the calls keep coming. After this past week, I wouldve thought there weren't anymore angry people out there, wowza  was I...

arg..........but it will improve

The day has started good, I took the battery out of the phone...I have decided I am not going to let twin 2 ride my like a dog. He has his own crap going on and I cant even address mine., when he gets this way. He has this insessant need to try and...

What the heck day is it anyway???

Elmo, I am going to steal(yes I said that word) your "Standards" and go on a rant of my own... What have we spent over a month in the classroom learning and close to 2 weeks on the floor learning to perfect, appearently isnt what the "new" or...

another day another dollar

I had another one of those  calls tonight, the ones that upset me all to hell and back. A 80 plus gramma that got talked into a phone she had no idea how to operate, she didnt even know how to turn it on.and the big dollar plan that goes with it. Her...

Early to bed, early to rise

I started an entry earlier tonight, and the little box for this is gone..wtf..I feel like I am typing random without the litttle edges to keep me in my place! It seems to be working alright, so I will just keep on keeping on. For a "holiday", today...

Saturday....where did it go?

Louie, I see you're out here, or atleast signed in here, I hope you  are doing ok, I'm thinking about ya, sending you virtual hugs... I took the coworker/ houseguest to see an apartment today, and just stood back and listened to how she delivers...

glad to be home

I was so glad to see quitting time come tonight, uffda. I got my coaching tonight, well, sort of. I found out what it was all about, after a fashion. I had just started, she had brought up on of my calls and we were to sit and listen together so...

tgif

It just appears to me that just about everybody in my group has been pulled up to the "coaches desk" for a "1 on 1"  I don't know if this is good or bad, because I haven't been...yet..I kind of listen into these conversations and they don't really...

Humphf!

So,...... I talked to twin 1 tonight, and when he asked me what I was up to, I told him....he goes off saying how he did that for over 5 yrs and he didnt want to talk about it..scuse me?   Just what the heck am I supposed to talk about. He kind...

Learning a little more each day

I had a call yesterday that went well over an hour, and took a supervisor riding shotgun to get it figured out and a whole lot of research. The poor woman had started an online order last Wednesday and all she wanted to do was change the delivery...

call centers

This is an open letter to those that call the support centers for your phones or any call center for that manner. Do you realize that these people that answer these phones are not the ones responsible for what ever problem you think you have. We...

Is it Friday yet?

Wow, what a frigging racket. The city is out front, replacing 80 yr old water lines all up and down the street, and for now, they are in front of my house...complete with backhoe, big trucks, hollering guys, and the rest of the nonsense they seem to...

Insanity?

WOW....first nite on the floor(although still at training level) and the first call I get is from someone whos accent was so deep, my braincells were scrambling trying to figure out what they were saying much less what to do. This was after spending 2...

I'm trying

I haven't really had a whole lot of dealings with "sexist" atitudes, well, on a personal level anyway. I am big enough and in the right light, intimidating enough to let them think I am not to be questioned. But yesterday, (1) little niggling thing...

Hug-o-Meter is working again

Wow, I so needed those. We went to the little park over by where the little guy is living and for 2 whole hours I hugged, and smiled and just enjoyed watching him run and giggle. I did sit and listen to how the Foster Mother was saying for the last 2...

Saturday Musings

Yesterday I must have started an entry atleast 4 times. Each one got derailed for one reason or another. I dont knkow about you, but when I got womething in the head, wanting to get out, I have to let it do so, and when I get derailed, I loose it...
