Happy Saturday everyone .. I know most of you are just like me time slips away .. it's Monday then it's Friday .. and over and over .. November ends today wow.
My November has been full of adventures, confusion, loads of work , a huge spiritual loss , as well as a family situation that hurts my heart.
So many different emotions and physical challenges in one 30 day package .. I for one will never ever say my life is boring!!
I am blessed in so many ways .. blessed and thankful to get to spend 5 days a week with my son and daughter ( we work together) .. we have grown not only as a family but as business partners that try to make good choices to promote the company while providing a safe and rewarding place of employment for our employees.
We never forget that they are the reason we are so successful. The trials of creating a work environment that they all feel appreciated and heard has had it's challenges lately.
I never knew men could be such babies , such attention seekers and arse kissers in hope of raises or special treatment ..
Over my lifetime I have usually had women work for or with me so I'm quite used to the childish behaviour that would rise and try to destroy .. but to see this in men really opened my eyes ..
As most of you know by now .. I'm a straight shooter .. I speak my mind, usually in kindness with respect but this behaviour has thrown me off my game !! lol
I remember well when I was working for the telephone company doing business sales .. I had just finished a meeting with 5 investors that were interested in a new switch board and internet for their resort property that held a value of over fifty thousand dollars .. when I left the meeting and got back in my company car I received a call from the gal that was supposed to be my aide .. the person that did what I asked as far as programming and ordering .. She was hollering at me about a programming request that she hadn't done .. because I hadn't exactly told her what to do ?? The request had been made by a school district at the end of the school year (June ) but because I hadn't made the request in the exact format she wanted .. she refused do it .. by this time it was August and the new school year ready to start .. total chaos had been created by her not doing this 30 second program request ...
I came unglued ... I knew this gal had bid on my job and was unsuccessful but as team players it is what it is right .. wrong !! She had done everything in her power to make me look like a fool .. well this was the last and final straw ..
I can remember like yesterday saying to her "" oh for the love of Mike .. this crap has to end .. for 5 cents I'll make sure the windows are up the doors are locked and drive this damn car in the lake!! I hung up on her and called my boss ..
"Are you sitting down Dean??" .. no Donna but I will !!
"If I wanted to work with children mister I would have applied for a job at the day care centre !! Then I explained in about 10 words what he needed to do!!
talk about deja view .. same type of situation arose this month .. only men this time .. I was floored .. my daughter God bless her said "" sheesh what's up I thought men handled things like men .. go outside bop each other in the nose then go for a beer .. all is good "
She cracks me up !!
Oops company at the door I have to leave this blog but I will be back soon ... don't mean to leave you hanging .. D
