Still Trying Not to Stress

Friday, February 25, 2011

My work is very tedious, I still don't have a set schedule and I don't know for sure if I will get paid. The girl I work under is having personal problems and is not very pleasant. Can you tell that I'm not pleased with my job situation?

    Sorry to hear what you're going through, Patty. I know it's easier said than done, but try not to let the other girl's attitude get to you -- people can sure make a difference in a day. I hope she resolves her own personal situation and stops taking our her frustrations on you, so you can enjoy your day, without having to deal with other's frustrations and with a lot less stress.

    Oh Patty that's such bad luck. I hope it resolves next week.
Try to distract yourself and put that theme aside in your mind, until you go back.

Trying Not to Stress

Thursday, February 24, 2011

I am trying very hard to not stay stressed about my job situation. But it's very difficult when I've been told 3 different schedules. And I still have not signed any papers with the employment agency. I tried twice to find one of it's locations but couldn't. The guy that called me about the job told me last week he would be out Tuesday with the paperwork. I've been trying ever since to reach him to no avail. One girl at work e-mailed him. He e-mailed back that he would call me. I'm still waiting.

Meanwhile, I will use today to do some tasks that I've been putting off for awhile. Hopefully this will keep my mind off of things. When I go in tomorrow, I will talk to the lady that I report to and see if I can get things straightened out with her. I hope that if we can't reach the employment agency, that she will just hire me on. Maybe that's a high hope. Maybe it will be a wasted week. I will cross that bridge tomorrow.

    Oh no, who needs that kind of stress? I'd be very worried, good for you trying to stay in control and taking your mind off the situation by doing something you need to get done anyway... sounds like some good advice, I should try to put in to practice..

My hope is that the job situation gets figured out soon!!

Wish you the best!!

    Been there, done that. Sometimes the agencies are more trouble than they are worth. Just work the the job and make sure you watch out for yourself and all will be OK. GOOD LUCK!

Second Day of Work

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

In general, my second day on the job went better. BUT, my schedule has been changed for the third time since Monday and I can't reach the employment agency. I haven't filled out any paperwork so I have no idea how I will get paid. I tried to go by two of the offices of the employment agency - one I could not find and one was empty. I will just have to say a prayer and hope it gets straightened out by Friday. I'm still tired today but at least I feel a little better than I did this time last night.

    Patty, emoticon emoticon Sleep well. I hope you feel better tomorrow! Best wishes at your new job! I remember way back in 1998 when I started a job; my very first day I had a terrible toothache that required immediate dental attention. I felt so bad having to call in my first day, but there was nothing I could do. emoticonCynthia

Not a Great Start to Day

Monday, February 21, 2011

When I went to bed, it was snowing outside and my daughter was coughing and achy inside. When I got up this morning, it was snowing outside and my daughter was still miserable. I just hope I don't get sick. I'm SUPPOSED to start a new part-time job tomorrow and don't want to have to miss the chance. But, this is the same job that I was supposed to start last Tuesday. When I got there, they sent me home saying there was a misunderstanding. I went to find the employment office Friday to fill out paperwork and absolutely could not find it. It's got me really wondering if everything is on the up and up.
