I answered my phone at work this morning and got the following:
Is this “Fizz Grumpy Pants”?
Did you live at Place A and then move to place B?
Thank goodness, I’ve been looking all over for you!
It was none other than my friend Cheryl, a gal that I’ve known since grade school! She ended up finding me through Classmates. Since the phone number I provided was actually my Fax #, she decided to take a chance on my Employer being the same as the one listed and called my company’s main line and asked for me.
Isn’t that just freakin’ cool?
What’ve youse guys been doin’? I’ve been being lazy. I’ve had a pretty boring week, I’ve been pretty focused and trying to get stuff done.
We had a meeting today where I was able to tell my TL “I’m not talking about everyone, I’m talking about me” when I said that I was very busy and he said that everyone’s very busy.
I’ve had an amazing change. I’m going to work and doin’ my work and I’m not gettin’ frazzled when they keep piling more and more and more on. I just keep going at a pace that I can get things done. No more, no less.
And, I’m not going to be busting my butt to make an unreasonable deadline. When I said that comment, I wasn’t frustrated. In fact, he backed right down because I said it quietly and calmly. It was nice. I was like that the whole meeting. Soft spoken and to the point.
