I absolutely love a four and a half day weekend, I enjoyed all of my moments…..even the cranky ones because I was home. Today was relentless, horribly relentless. I explained it to one of the accounts who works in a chain like this “imagine that the mall has been closed for four days, you are working and there is a mass of people waiting to get in and at least half of them want to check on their glasses.” His response “I’m scared for you.” I was scared for me too but I survived, not without bitching about it though. Not the customers…..the letting everybody have off today when we all knew it would be busy. Hey if they don’t care about how stressed their customer service (canon fodder) sounds…why should I?
I was on the phone with the girl at lunch while I was on my way to Dunkin Donuts for a latte (through the radio/blue tooth) when I pulled out behind a landscape truck. It was one of those things that I couldn’t stop. I didn’t know it was a truck for the company that Cockroach works for until I was in mid turn…son of a beehive…I could be following my stalker. The girl thought that it was hysterical, I was never so happy to get out from behind another vehicle. Then the girl asked “how tired are you today?” I answered “pretty tired, it was hard to get up this morning” she then says “I imagine it would be with that sneezing fit that you had in the middle of the night, I was still awake.” “Sneezing fit? Oh you mean the ten minutes it took me to actually get out a full sneeze, where it sounded like I was having a seizure?” She starts snickering “yeah that one” “it was fine after I sneezed and stuck a tissue up my nose so I could sleep, unfortunately I woke up with two pieces of tissue stuck to my tongue” She then lost it….”I am so happy that I can amuse you” “Sorry mom but that’s funny stuff”. The boy just wanted to make sure that I was bringing him food tonight, he is too busy playing Xbox live to be concerned with life and stuff.
The last couple of days I have spent some serious time thinking about what I want to do or change for 2015, I even have a Pinterest board going to help me sort it out. I have never been one to give something up….which is why I quit smoking in the month of October….it’s too much pressure, but setting new goals….January is the perfect time for a reassessment…..Zia
