Bits and pieces

Monday morning. I don't think I ever mentioned that I had to ask for the extender for my seat belt on my flights to and from Salt Lake City. Fabulous, huh? This did not happen on Southwest but it did happen on Delta. Something to think about when making reservations (I know that I will remember it in future).

In other news, I've decided to take Neil's challenge, so I might be a bit sore a couple of days a week for the next month. If you see me out and about and I'm limping, you'll know why.

Finally, I think the reason for my recent discontent at work really is Troubled Team Member #1 (TTM1). There are other team members with issues (don't we all have issues? I know that I do), but they would be manageable if it weren't for the daily drama that is TTM1. I need to figure out a way to deal with TTM1 while not allowing myself to become stressed out and negative, which is what's happening now. It's either that or find another job. Seriously. Life is far too short to be this miserable.

Well, at least now, you know where to focus positive energy. Hope that leads you to a strategy that works. I used to deal with rotten principals by just not having any conversations with them unless I really needed to...that left less to be taken the wrong way on both sides!
Give it a good try...it can be a stressful hassle looking for a new job!

I hear you on employee drama - I had one who was having an affair, smoked pot, didn't know she was pregnant until she gave birth (after a night of drinking & smoking). That's just the tip of the emotional iceberg...

Don't know if you can get your HR department involved or offer any support programs that may be available.
