Stay in your own lane! How many times do I say that a day? Too many to count! I think that M is finally in a place where I can just look at her and she says “I know…get in my own lane.” Then I hand her some balance and wild orange essential oils which I know is her favorite blend and she is fine. I try my best to keep her calm and feeling positive, sometimes it’s more difficult…especially after she has talked with The Optician.
Speaking of The Optician….I think she’s going to blow….I tried to reconcile one of the frame statements and she couldn’t provide me with all of the invoices so I had to call and have copies faxed from the manufacturer. She also didn’t like that I was checking current lab invoices against the computer. I caught two jobs that were supposed to have anti reflective coating on them and were not on the lab invoices. Thankfully The Optician is horrible about calling patients in a timely fashion and they were in a basket waiting to be called. Now they can be sent back and fixed before the patient knows we received them incorrectly.
I made the mistake of mentioning that I have been putting all remakes in the computer and that seemed to push her right over the edge. I don’t even have words for her behavior the last two days?! She even started to get personal saying that Big K and Force of Nature Girl were saying horrible things about me behind my back. First off…I’m working and doing what I’m told. Second..so what? Third…I don’t really buy it? Those two ladies helped me move on a day that was almost 100 degrees…full on busted ass helped me. Besides…I have no secrets, and I can’t lie…so what is she talking about? I made her more mad by not asking what was said and continuing to work. Like I said…she is going to blow.
She (The Optician) might suspect the few things I found…the ones that made my stomach hurt, but the others? She has no idea. There are big mistakes….I can’t even guess the monetary value of the glasses that left our facility that were never billed or paid for? I can guess the lens cost because I have seen the lab invoices but those don’t include the cost of the frame.
What began as a simple work assignment has turned into so much more. She might be behaving badly right now but I do believe The Optician is a good person. I wasn’t concerned for her job before but her behavior is making me question that statement. The Optician is full of blind rage right now and I’m not sure how that will go over with the big doctor?
Me? I’m just hanging out over here in my own lane…..Zia
PS….I really hate talking about work when I am not working….
