Lather, Rinse, Repeat


It has just flat-out been a busy past few months.

Work has been intense, and I just come home and eat, then sleep.

It's not really a problem, but days like today get me a bit upset.

(I just deleted a whole story about what happened at work today.)

In the end, if someone were to read it, I might get in trouble.

We're in a mode at work where everyone is supposed to be so grateful to have a good job in these tough economic times that we're expected to be willing to be trod upon.

I was trod upon some today, and was basically forced to find someone willing to be trod upon with me.

I can't be any more detailed than that.

I love my company and I especially love the people there, but sometimes, some days, I'm required to not only go above and beyond, myself, which is no problem, but also required/expected to find some others who will go above and beyond with me.

That's really hard for me to do.

Richard Pryor used to joke about how his dad would yell at him and tell him to "go get a stick for me to beat you with."

My work day was kinda like that today.

Well, it could be worse! You could be laid off. No insurance. 6 kids to take care of.
Actually my hubby is glad to be laid off, he just is worried about the insurance. We are fine financially until March, but that doesn't include insurance.

I completely empathize. I noticed a shift in attitude and policy recently; really stupid policies that suddenly can get you written up and even fired. The attitude seems to be that now that the economy is so tough, you'll do anything to keep your job, even the stupidest thing that the boss could want and you'll be grateful to do it.

I hope things are better this week.
