a few days away

August 13th, 2018 at 06:00 pm

I took a quick trip to my hometown. My daughter and family lives there in my house. I not pleased with lack of yardwork done and general upkeep I will need to discuss and talk with DH about reminding them to clean up more or hiring help. My son in law also seems to think each time I am in town I should take them out for meals etc.
Went to visit my step dad it has been since November since my mom passed but he does not seem to be doing well. I told him how bad a financial mess she had left behind in NOVEMBER.
Now almost 9 months later my siblings JUST figured it out that there is simply NOTHING to estate but bills and they seem confused as to where any money went.
I was quite clear that it was bailing out everyone of siblings and families crisis ( they had a crisis daily). Even though NONE of my siblings are working and live locally, they think that I should drop everything ( a fulltime job) and drive 5 hours to clean up her house and things. I looked over things again and she had some nice clothes and things but not even close to my size but somehow they think I should take these items I took a few items but regret it already as it is nothing but clutter for me to deal with.

working on my patience

August 7th, 2018 at 05:33 am

I have come to realize that my level of patience seems to be at an all time low. Maybe that is why the job with nothing to do bothered me so much.

I went in on yesterday and started on the project still with a bit of work from Friday. in about an hour the supervisor came in and told me to start the work left over. Well at that point I had finished the 2 items she listed and one other item, I suppose she was giving to someone else. I double checked the work and then sent the email saying A,B,C was done. her response after letting me sit there for weeks, was to check with other departments to see if anyone needed help and since they did not told me I could leave for the day if I wanted.

I left and did a few errands I have put off for awhile. I will go in today but doubt there is anymore work I hope they just realize that and let me call it done as this is the last week of my notice.

I really hope new job is much better but have doubts since most all businesses I have gone in etc never show any speed beyond SNAIL.
I recently opened an account at a CU partly because I needed a closer option for banking and because they had a promotion deal that paid great interest and a bonus for opening account not only for me but for son who referred me.
The day I went in, the line for service was increasing and was not being addressed very fast. I noticed some employees who usually did things like mortgages probably could do things like open accounts but instead sat there talking with feet up on desk.
Also a recent trip to DMV was also poorly run as most other locations streamline processes by taking the shorter tasks first finding if they can speed process up by answering questions before sitting there for hours to be told "oh we need this document instead" this location supervisor was actually IMO slowing things down.
I was annoyed but everyone around me seemed less annoyed and just resigned to poor service and slow work.
How do I learn to accept poor performance and a simple trip that should be 30 minutes taking 2.5 hours??
I really do not feel it is me because I have seen and worked in situations where when faced with a large influx of customers of work you prioritize and try to adapt not just look up and think whoo hoo OT work at the same snail pace.
When I finally got to the counter the person helping me wanted to chit chat like seriously do you not see a room full of people waiting???

new chapter

August 1st, 2018 at 07:25 pm

So this week is over half over has been awkward at best. Everyone has ignored me since I gave notice. 1 person has talked to me and I just explained it was a better opportunity. So 3 other people have quit this place since I gave notice so I feel it is NOT just me being picky.
I am doing ok and this week they have given me work after I send emails asking for a new project … really for a month I sat half the time and now that I am leaving they have workflow. I just take a deep breath and do what I can. I found out I will need to leave early or come in late to go to a specific lab for the drug test for new place. It is 15 miles away but with traffic will be an hour round trip and the clinic is only open 7-4 Monday through Friday. Again how do people manage to fit this stuff in always taking time off to change jobs?? I am trying very hard to let my frustrations go and work on going forward.
