Apparently, where I work is no longer a library but a corporation. Maybe instead of focusing on putting patrons on hold and how we answer the phone, the library should be looking at what people actually WANT. And maybe, just maybe, treating their employees better.
Looking for book recommendations. Need to create a read alike list for A Monster Calls. Any suggestions out there?
please tell me I’m not alone in this…
I awkwardly turn it into a high five.
I don’t understand why patrons need to touch, hug, or have contact with me. I don’t randomly go up to people in the grocery store and pat them on the shoulder and thank them. Just not a touchy person UNLESS I KNOW YOU PERSONALLY. LIKE, MORE THAN AS A PATRON.
So, I started having odd symptoms lately. Finally made an appointment after Hubby mentioned that they sounded a lot like the gallbladder symptoms his sister had. Or an ulcer.
Tomorrow I go in and talk to the doctor. I’m a bit nervous and hoping it’s “just” a virus. Granted, when I called and made an appointment, it didn’t seem to bode well that they put me on hold and had a nurse come on and talk to me. One of the first questions she asked was “Do you still have your gallbladder?”
What I don’t like is that I worry about how it looks at work. Gone over the weekend, left early Monday and am gone for two more days. To add to the list of things that haven’t gone right lately - my back keeps acting up and my heel spurs seem to want to come back randomly. And we’re being told to shift books because apparently, they changed plans in the middle of the stream and now we’re shifting things BACK.
I’m a bit cranky. I’ve been inside, and the weather is gorgeous. No rain, the river is receding, and my garden needs to be weeded. And there’s sheep fleece that needs to be taken care of, but I slept, didn’t do much, and hated it. (Okay, it’s not like I would have been able to do much between the feeling like crap and back pain, but I could have at least gone outside and picked some herbs.)
A while ago, I penned a fairly angry response to something circulating on the internet – the 21 Habits of Happy People. It pissed me off beyond belief, that there was an inference that if you weren’t Happy, you simply weren’t doing the right things.
I’ve had depression for as long as I can…
This is a good list. As someone who is dealing with depression, being told to just “be happy” and to “change my outlook” and to be “more optimistic” doesn’t help. It actually makes me feel worse because I’ve tried. Or that day, the depression feels like too much and just making it to work and through the day is about all I can do.
Bun in the oven
There are more, but those are just the ones that came up from one program.
