What constitutes your mood for the day? If the sun is shinning when you open your eyes
are you happy, smiling, joyful??
If it's gloomy are you crabby, sad, a grouch?
Well I pride myself in being a fairly even tempered person. But today when I got to work (I'm working 8 hours overtime this morning, I am on afternoons) the "new guy" was at my desk. Now mind you we don't have assigned desk, we are on a schedule and are assigned areas by our schedule. But when you are on overtime you work the desk that is vacant . . well today two people are off. So in my mind I thought because I had department seniority I would have a choice . . . well one can dream! Well when I saw the new guy at the desk that I left all my stuff sitting at when I left last night at 11:30 I was surprised . . one because he had shoved all my stuff to the end of the desk and then told me if I would get to work earlier I could have had the choice . . . well as it was I was 20 minutes early only got about 4 hours of sleep and didn't expect that kind of reception on Monday morning. MOOD SET . . . I'm a crab . . or maybe even the big B word. I have to work 16 hours today and tomorrow and I don't want to talk to anyone . . out of the ordinary for me. Maybe as the day goes on I will snap out of it.
Maybe what made me so mad is that he was a smart "a" . . hey that's my job. However I wouldn't have said something rude to my "new co-worker". The new guy is now my rotation partner, I hope I shake off my new dislike before we are working alone together . . or this will be a long 14 years until retirement.
So as I type this I can feel the wrinkles between my eyebrows gaining strength - my teeth hurt from clenching them and my overall body language saying just stay away from me. So I guess thank goodness for bypass surgery or I would be face first in a Hershey Bar . . sitting here with chocolate from ear to ear . . . just the thought of that is making me feel better already! : )
Well maybe writing down your feelings does work - I do feel better venting - but I'm still not ready to be nice to the new guy . . shame on me!
I'll go think about chocolate now!
