Slap the Eyebrows off someone Face

There are a lot of things that just make me want to slap the eyebrows off someone face. The number one thing that make we feel that way is when someone makes up in their mind that I am a slacker.

There is a new employee in our department and she has no idea of what each person does in the department. That is not the correct way to explain it. She knows the job description and has made it up in her mind that she will be a widget processor. She was trained what is to be done for scheduling but she has decided that she will do just one function of that job and leave the rest to everyone else. Everyone else in her mind is me.

She had really decided that anything that she does not want to so I should do. She mistakes my usual mild manner to mean and that she can delegate what she does not want to do to me. She will ask for help on something and then give it to me like I am to take it and complete it. I usually give it back tell her I have work that needed to be done so she needs to finish what she started.

Her tactic then is to complain to the supervisor that something was not done and make sure that it is understood that I was the one who did not do it. I came into the room just as she was explaining this to the supervisor and the supervisor in turn started attempted to reprimand me for not doing the job. These were my words.

“I want both of you to stop what you are doing and look at me. I will not be accused of not doing my work. I complete my job to the best of my ability and I am not about to be overloaded with someone else’s work. When your work day is over you want to go home on time and I do as well. I will not stay after my work day has ended to complete something that you can take care of during your work day. “

The supervisor said something about teamwork and we all work together on different aspect of the scheduling and some things must be done at the end of the day because the morning is so busy.

“Well I guess you better take the time before you leave at the end of the YOUR day to make sure your portion of this is done because you will see I take care of what I need to before I leave.”

The supervisor said something that sounded like if it does not get done earlier than it need to be done before you go home.

“ I would not hold be breathe on that one. You as the supervisor need to make sure that it is done before anyone on your “TEAM” goes home. “

Then I left the room. I do not know what was said after I left nor do I care.

So when 2:30 came around the supervisor came to me and said did you finish blah blah blah. My response was yes here it is.
She then went to my coworkers who did not finish blah blah blah and she then started yelping about these must be done before you leave you cannot leave them for end of the day. There are doctors who have patients until 5:30 so these needs to be done before you leave.

I still need to slap the eyebrows off someone face.

I need Therapy

It's important to take time for yourself and I am one for telling others to do that for themselves but often i do not do this for myself.   I find that I am surrounded by people who need me to do things for them.  Nothing major things that they can do themselves but it is easier to get someone else to do it and i am that someone else.  Gail do this, gail do that.  Good grief!
There are times when I feel like I am just living my life.   Just making it  day after day, one day blends into the next one.  Don't really see accomplishments, advancements, forward movements. As a result i an feel a bit lost and out of sorts.  I feel the need for therapy. I have a bujo and in it i have schedule and routine for everyone and thing with the exception of me.  I discovered this when i took a moment to review the schedules and routines to figure out  why i was not getting any sewing projects completed, no practice time for watercolors and the crocheting and needlework was sitting in a  corner.…

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…

Beyond Mesaure

My mother taught me to sew my clothes because I was bigger then the average girl.  Please note the word I used was bigger not taller.  This is what I heard from family and friends " wow you are getting big"  At the age of 11 or 12  big means fat not tall.  
When looking at picture of myself at that young age when I was getting bigger it turns out I was quite slim. My Uncle called my lean bean, because I was long and lankey. He was the only one who go the measurment correct and described me in a way that I preferred to big. 
Before going into High School I stood 5 feet 8 inches tall and when I graduated high schooL I grew another .75 inches taller.  I tell people I am 5 foot 9 inches tall.  I love being tall  I am not a fan of being big. 
My sister stands 5 foot4 inches tall and she remembers as she was growing being told she was big.  I guess my family does not use pharses like " my how you have grown" and instead use phrases such as  "Wow you are getting big!…
