Cranky Day

Thursday, November 27, 2008

I have had three cranky days in a row... yesterday was by far the worst of the three days. I'm glad the weekend in coming, this week can't end soon enough.

My work has been exhausting me. Not the actual work itself, but the nonsense that comes hand in hand with working with people who take no pride in their work.

I understand all too well that people make mistakes. I make mistakes. It happens. When I realize that I've made a mistake, like most people, I own up to it, and then I take the necessary steps to correct the mistake.

I can't deal with people who make mistakes and just don't care, or even worse (which is the case this time), try to put the blame for the mistake on someone else. Unfortunately, I have the misfortune of having to work with someone who does just that. Fortunately for me, people have begun to recognize what has been going on, and are beginning to hold this person accountable for their actions. What does this person do when they realize they've been caught? They call in sick and hope that everyone forgets or feels sorry for them.

The only good thing that's coming from all of this is that I have had the willpower to keep myself from going to the fridge and eating everything in sight. Yay for me.

Tomorrow is going to be a great day!

    I work with a couple people like the one you described ... one in particular really gets to me. She works on the shift that is on duty before mine. We have one person from each shift come in a hour earlier than the rest of the shift to have continuity between the shifts. I'm the one who works the overlap hour with the day shift. The person I overlap with is one of those people who NEVER does ANYTHING incorrectly and blames and mistakes or problems I inquire about with someone else on her shift, usually the person who I releaved, no matter which dispatcher that is. She has a sharp tongue and is very unpleasant. I thank my lucky starts five days a week that I only have to spend an hour a day with her. Fortunately, when she leaves and the rest of the dispatchers from my shift come in everything turns around and I have seven pleasant hours at work.

    I'm glad you managed to stay away from the refrigerator ... stress is one of the big triggers to overeating.

    I love the picture at the end of your blog...beautiful. I have a real hard time not letting others behaviors affect my moods, but I am slowly, progressively getting better about it. Going to the gym and working out there helps me a lot because there is usually a positive energy flow from the people there. I totally agree, yay for you for not emotionally eating. Good job. Stay positive and thanks for the blog. Each day you live well, you are well. Peace.
