Messing Around In The Work Place….

I sure would hate to think so. You’d best not be messing round in the work place. How many of you guys out there look forward to going to work? To get away from the drama of your personal life? I’d hate to think not. I live to go to work. Especially when shit is getting deep at home. Or already has been deep and you need to just stay the hell as far away as possible. Yeah thought so. Same here. No worries I assure you. I would think that everyone now and then admits they can’t wait to go back to work after having a few days off. The bullshit you deal with at work, the very same bullshit you come home bitching about, is starting to look real nice after you have about 2-3 days off in a row.

So, am I the only one that likes to joke with co-workers? I think not. It just makes for a better working environment if you ask me. The people I work with all think the same thing also. Makes things less awkward. One thing I absolutely cannot stand is, for another crew member coming into work, to already be shitty or in a bad mood because they are dealing with their own issues outside work in their personal life. And I’ll be damned if out of everyone that works there does just that everyday. Oh, I really hate it if they start taking their anger or frustration out on the people that are working that day. All they’re asking for is for someone to set them off, so they can take their own problems out on the nearest person they close to at work.

Example : A certain shift manager went through her own battle trying not to bring her bad relationship about her baby daddy to work with her. She couldn’t keep her mind off him and then later on when lunch started to be served, someone did just that and set her off. Nothing personal was ever said and no one intentionally tried to piss her off more than she already was. It was all over because she misunderstood how a customer was describing how she wanted her sandwich prepared. What to put on it and what NOT to put on it. All she did was forget to say to the cook that said customer added the last condiment at the window. Well needless to say it was made correctly just without the extra sauce the person added when they pulled up to the window. The entire crew damn near got into it with her over how she handled that situation. Adding in that she was taking her frustration out on the customers also. It caused a very uncomfortable situation between everyone working that day.

That day in particular I was so ready to have the next 2 days off. Upon my return to work the following days that came after. That customer called the complaint line on the shift manager that was in charge on that day and told the company how not only rude she was but how immature she was and couldn’t handle her job position nor the title that came with it. The GM came to me asking me what I witnessed and instead of calling me into the office to tell her she wanted me to write it down and leave it with her. I hated being put in the middle of it like that but my GM knows I won’t lie to her and I won’t lie on anyone that was said to do something they didn’t actually do. There were things that were said she did that I know for a fact she didn’t do and I made sure that our GM knew the entire truth. You don’t lie on someone when it comes to their job man you just don’t. That’s fucking with their money and I’m not on that bullshit. I’m a firm believer in Karma so I try and do right by others. Including calling someone on their own bullshit.

In my home life though there are several different stressors. My daughter being pregnant at 17 and not knowing who she’s staying with because she’s not a legal adult yet. Then the relationship between my son and husband. Getting my old man to understand how my son feels about himself and that he doesn’t claim him to be a problem for him. And he was being honest too. My son is down on himself. He feels like a failure because he got kicked out of living with his roommate and is now living back with us. My husband finally told him that it’s gonna happen. Him failing in life. At least once or twice. Then again maybe not at all. Nothing and no one is 100% perfect or makes it through life without so much as one fuck up. So after Tina has had her 2-3 days off in a row, going back to work at the place I bitch about ppl the most starts looking really freaking good to me after those days off.

With all that finally said and me being finished with it I’m finally going to post this now after like 2-3wks of being kept in my drafts. Lol!!!

I have always loved expressing myself through words. I have been a bookworm since I started reading I think. So expressing myself through writing has forever been super easy for me. Now if I could just teach everyone who didn't know how, how to read, then they'd be able to read all the fascinating literature out there. I'd go crazy if I couldn't curl up to a good book on a rainy day if I wanted to. I work with the public. So I was outside a couple days ago typing away on my 2nd hand chrome book, and a nice gentleman started conversation about how long it took to charge. I said not long for an older model. He said he knew, about the older model I was working with. I proceeded to tell him I was trying my hand at writing a book. He turned out to be an avid bookworm himself. He gave me nothing but encouragement to finish the book. I like to tell myself I can do anything. But we all know how some people should just stick to their profession, well I'm gonna keep trying. I won't stop until I know without a shadow of doubt I can't succeed. Then maybe I'll put my pencil down, or in my case now, close my chrome book for good. Something tells me I won't have to just yet though.
