I did it, I went hatless yesterday. I held my head up high and decided it was time to quit hiding behind that floppy hat. And truth is hardly anyone even cared. Of course there was that one old man who asked me what in the world I'd done to my head but he is a grouchy old man that has in the past said some not so nice things to me anyway. He only dampened my spirit for a moment. I did go and have it shaped up a little so it didn't look so shaggy down my neck and over my ears. One man told me he liked my spiffy haircut and the people who knew what a big deal it was for me gave me a hug. So I've reached a big milestone. Some people don't get the big deal it was to me.
It left me feeling free and unburdened and proud to announce to the world, "I have survived this thing, hair loss and all!"
This morning is the dreaded conference call. I don't have too many more of those.
Work has been rough again lately. We are all tired and nothing is easy. It is getting to all of us as I saw short tempers yesterday from my staff and I understand why. People are more difficult now than ever. They are demanding and have no patience to wait their turn and treat us like we are trying to screw them over or like we don't know what we are doing. And they are just sometimes RUDE.
It hurts your feelings and disheartens you when you are trying so hard to please people and do what is best or them and then they slam you with being rude.
Matthew said the economy is affecting his work and it is rough too at this time. He is a policeman. He says people are desperate and pitiful and maybe that is affecting our customers as well.
Anyway, I am looking forward to the break and I hope things calm down for my co-workers. I keep telling them to come go with me to Washington and we'll make jewelry and sell it on the beach, lol.
Well, time to get on the call, have a good day dear friends and if you go shopping smile and be patient with the sales clerks, they'll appreciate it!
