Another crazy day at work today. Every day I survive at this new job is one day closer to retirement. That is the only way I can get through the next 5 years...one day at a time. I am trying so hard to change my mindset about it. I know that I need to just embrace it and go with the flow, but it is so hard some days.
On a good note, I have a secret fairy that has put new hubcaps on my car. It had to be one of the guys at work, but I am not sure who it is ( I have an idea though). It actually makes me cry to know that someone here thinks that well of me.
I came here as a stranger to everyone...a stranger that took one of the jobs that they may have been promoted to. I had one of the guys I supervise on my new job tell me yesterday that he was worried about getting a boss he knew nothing about. He said he was told by one of the people I had supervised in my first job here that I was a very genuine person. That made me smile. That is the highest complement I could ever receive. I strive to be just that...genuine...no pretense...no B.S.
I was also glad to learn that the one employee that I thought just didn't like to work for me was like that with the old boss too. I think I might have found the reason for his sullen behavior and may even have a remedy for it. He is going to be my "work in progress".
