Sometimes I'm not sure that "WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU!!" is completely inappropriate for work. Yeah, go ahead and say it. TL, that is completely inappropriate for work.
My work or yours.
I stopped at McDonald's drive thru (hey, don't judge, it was the 4th of July) and the cashier charged me for the wrong order, refunded the difference in cash and then they tried to give me the wrong order at the other window. Not a single one of them could understand what was wrong with my order and the one that they were trying to give me. What I ordered: double cheeseburger, medium fries and a large un-sweet ice tea. What they wanted me to have: two cheeseburgers, large fries and a large drink of some sort. That big of a difference? No, but not the point. I wanted to asked what the hell was wrong with them.
Today at work, my coirker proceeded to ask me a variation of the same question he has been asking for almost 10 months. I almost slipped. My 'library' setting isn't library quiet but screaming "WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU!!" would have been noticed.
I just don't get it and it is absolutely exhausting. I am happy to pass on my knowledge if you ask (or not) but I expect you to retain at least the basic point of it and after 10 months, I am not going to hold your hand while you do something. Anyone who is at least one pay grade above me, should not need their hand held for 10 months. I just need to figure out how to kick them in the pants to make them do their own work.
Also, if I have to RSVP for something, doesn't that mean it's optional? My cousin sent out a wedding invitation with an RSVP, it says yes I am coming or no I am not, which means I have to pick one. Of course I am going to my cousin's wedding, but I figure this theory also applies to other RSVP situations. I declined one today. It's going to get ugly. If it's mandatory, make it mandatory and don't give me a yes/no option. Until then, Decline with pleasure" is my response.
I am learning to do a mosaic. I decided to finally strip out the nasty yellow tile that came in my coffee table and am going to replace it with something awesome and nerdy like this:
Only mine will have a blue background. I've never done a mosaic, but I might as well start with something complicated. To entertain myself during this project, I found SeaQuest DSV on Netflix. It's like being a teenager all over again. Talking dolphins and Jonathan Brandis, what's not to love? Except the minor detail of the story lines being all over the place. Plot? What plot? We'll add aliens! Aliens make everything better. Except when you are on a SUBMARINE under water. I'm surprised it survived 2.5 seasons because I probably would have cancelled it mid-season 2. But you know I am still going to finish it. I'm not a quitter!
Just don't expect me to RSVP.
