Straight up journal time..Today was a hard.
Friday, September 19, 2014
Yesterday I had gotten a call to come into work today. I normally work on the weekends ALONE in the office by myself. I haven't worked with anyone in almost 2 months.. so today was kinda nerve racking for me.. I suddenly felt all self conscience about my ability to perform my daily duties.
It starts off kinda hectic -- what normally takes me 15 mins to do on my normal days suddenly took me 45 mins because I had to work around everyone else. Sigh. But the day drug on, slowly getting better. Until it was time for a customer to come in. I can't get into details to protect privacy, but he yelled at me for something he had done.. so he drove all the way down to our resort on the wrong day...me being super nice always wanting to please people, I tried to calm him down and told him that if he didn't mind waiting a few minutes I'd see what I could do to fix the problem. He yelled that he would..
Well with the help of my co-workers I got the situation handled (because I didn't know how to work the issue out in our weird computer system).. and he got to stay. He eventually apologized realizing he was wrong (only after going out to his car to talk to his wife to calm down) and said its just been a hard year with his wife's chemo.
I can understand the hardship - honestly I can we had a situation in my own immediate family - but that doesn't give you the right to yell at a complete stranger for something you done yourself! Sometimes I really hate working with the public. People don't think before they speak..
The day finally finished and I finally got to go home. My mom took me and my granddad out to eat at O'Bryan's where I got in a relatively healthy meal..grilled lemon peppered chicken breast, a baked sweet potato, and some fried okra. Okra - yeah its a weakness, but my portions were good. But now its 9:30 pm, and I'm trying to talk myself out of raiding my fridge to make some Shakeology just so I can get a healthy chocolate fix lol. And I probably would if my granddad hadn't of just went to bed -- I'm afraid to wake him with the blender.
Tomorrow will be better for sure. I have my niece and nephew for the day and night. I have a water balloon fight, games, and movies planned out for the evening. I think the kids (age 11 and 3) like that I'm still a big kid at heart lol. I'm always getting told they get excited when they find out I'm coming to play with them :) Its great being an Aunt.
