Well it's been awhile hasn't it

Sorry life has got in the way again. Too much going on and I don't know which way to turn. My head is spinning like a top. sooooo much shitz.

All I can think of is: 4 more days of work. 4 more days....sigh...4 more days. I have to write a farewell speech....well I don't HAVE to, but I want to. I will miss my boys. (electricians) They are so unique and each and every one has such a great personality. In all my 14 years there I have never had a confrontation with one of the guys...evar. They might of wanted to kick my ass a few times for bugging them about getting time sheets and work sheets in on time, but they didn't. It's really all about doing what you have to do with a sense of humour...and they can't help but like you because you aren't all up on their shit. I have been criticized at times for being too lax when it comes to MAKING them get everything in on time from our head office. Well a little sugar goes a long way, let me tell you. If you piss them off, they will piss you off. They know they can come to me for anything and I will do my best to do..whatever....

I hope the new guy knows this too. But, I wouldn't put any bets on it. But, I'm sure it will be a learning curve for everyone.

So, Friday will be the first day I will not be wearing a hoodie and jeans to work. Yeah, I decided to dress up because they are going to bestow me with gifts .. and shit. And people are coming from our head office..plus clients... for the....Grand Opening of our new building/Joan's (forced)retirement.

Got any drugs?....because I'm getting a little worked up about this. I think one of Hippy Chicks ..ummm brownies would do the trick on Friday. But I must keep my head clear to say goodbye ..and try not to use words like ... assholes, fuckers, and I really wished you would have waited until I turned 65 in October to let me make the decision.

Yeah...lots of shit going on in my head. 4 more days people.

The best job I ever had was my first one--I worked with 7 men. They never snipe at you. They tell you exactly what they want. They give good directives. UNLIKE the office manager (woman) I worked for in my second job. Bitch was always trying to throw me under the bus.

Anyway--I digress.

Have a wonderful last few days. Everything will be fine on Friday and the guys are sure going to miss you...I know that fer sure. Eat lots of cake!!!

Donna. damn girl...you got it right...that is what I plan to do.

Thanks Jude...I will remind the boss to get a cake! I bet he forgot. I need pudding cake.

Brenda said...

I agree with Donna, but if they do call with questions make sure you have a consulting price all lined up before you give them the answers.

I wish I could be there to cheer you up!

Donna is right. The day I left I took my "how to do my job" book (I had made) with me. I figured if I had to learn the job on the fly all on my own that the next person could too--without my help. Geez, that was 7 years ago and I'm still pissed I got pushed out the door.

Donna said...

Nah, but I appreciate the offer...I'll just start looking for new ones. Most of those sites kept putting out the same old stuff. I'm a flowery person. Dots, I don't do so well with!lolol

How'd everything GO yesterday?
Hope you do a post on it...
Happy Saturday Sweetie!
