Well, I suppose with better income outside of that job, you have a lotYeah from the amount of uproar that was going on at that dude over
less hide in the issuer... ;) And, I suppose also that if he hasn't
improved any since, others will probably do the complaining up the
just the few weeks he's either learned by his trial through fire or
else he's ended up well known in those corporate circles. The dude was
a nice enough guy; I don't hold anything against him, really, but there are just certain skills that you need to have if you're going to be in management. Being able to generate schedules for your employees is
kind of one of those baseline ones, or at least having access to
somebody who is good enough at it that you can delegate that task to.
Seeing the people without any "feet" makes one less grumpy about notYou know you're very right about that part. If I could handle the
having "shoes"... ;) Years ago, I was an income maintenance worker for
DSS... one does learn to appreciate what one does have, as well as learn
more compassion for those with a lot less... :)
cut in pay, it'd be nice again sometimes to go back to my former job as an intake specialist, helping out those in desperate need of cash
grants. It really does give a person a much better perspective.
It's so easy to fall into the whining trap about problems that are so utterly petty, even in the first world, let alone when compared with
some of the issues that are going on in 2nd and 3rd world countries.
Reinforcement that you are doing your job, and doing it well.. :)Always a wonderful thing to have, especially when you're a person as plagued by insecurity and doubt as much as I usually am. It seems to
be that much stronger where it's a sect of my life in which I'm responsible for a young/ innocent, also. I suppose that's normal, but
I know that I've always had a much greater amount of insecurity than
most others, partially due to my abusive upbringing. I'm just glad
that I'm getting better at dealing with those things now.
It seemed to have been helpful... she had very little delirium, which isI am very glad to hear that things progressed well afterwards.
a major risk especially for the elderly in a stressful environment...
and she is improving steadily now that she is home. She had to have
emergency bowel surgery, fortunately not worst-case scenario, and the
surgeon was quite happy with how she progressed afterwards... Maybe now
she won't keep having some of the bowel issues she was having...
Bowel issues are just no fun at all, either. I really hope that the surgery has the intended effects for her. Updates would be
appreciated. :) Even without them, though, wishing the best from
Gotta have RL taking precedence. Otherwise you end up like some of
the people that I know IRL around here that have huge clusters of life tangled up in knots while they're busy putting out reams and reams of content on tumblr, diaspora, twitter, and god knows where else. ;)
Who cares if you've got a good net persona when the one that you're
stuck in 'for reals' in your rotting porksuit can't even find a clean pair of clothes to put on. ;) More soon, I'm gonna see if I can't
bust through a little more of this today.
For sure... Had he had any management experience previously...? One can hope that by now he's learned how to do the basics... or that they've figured out that he isn't going to work out...
Having had the experience, it's something that you can call up in memory to remind you of the perspective... volunteering in similar settings can do the same thing... :)
True, insecurities are often magnified when what you do is going to
affect others as well as yourself... On the other hand, sometimes it's easier to see that things are working out properly after all when you
can see the effects outside of yourself... :) And as you see that you are doing fine, that can help quell the insecurities... :)
Thank you for the well wishings... :) She's continuing to do better, growing stronger and able to do more things independently again... we still have to be there just in case, and for the stabilizing hold now
and then... so I'm still taking some shifts of care coverage. When she went for her followup visit to the surgeon to get the staples removed,
he was quite pleased with her progress, and pronounced it a success.
I pretty much draw the line at Fidonet (and similar, smaller nets) and
the bbsing... I don't have the time or energy to keep up with all that web stuff, this takes quite enough time as it is, thank you... ;) I
have a sister that lets Facebook and similar take valuable sleeping
time, and in her case, she really needs the sleep to be able to function without meltdowns...
Yeah... and I'm finally getting back to messagings, myself, today... ;) One just has to balance it all... ;)
