Drama, Drama Everywhere and Not a Care to Spare
I'm tired of it... I graduated high school over 11 years ago now and am done with it. Lately drama has been coming out of the cracks in the sidewalk. If it's not from people fussing about piddly shit at work, it's family members fussing and feuding. I'm tired of hearing it. If I want drama I'll turn on the tellie and watch CSI or E.R. or something. If you want to call and tell me that so and so is doing great or about some new recipe or even ask a health question that you may think I (in my minuscule knowledge of health) may share some enlightenment on then , hey, call away. I'm tired of the calls 'cause someone is doing this or that and you don't like all right that's good you don't like what they do here's some sage advise...tell them not me I'm not there I have no pull and ya'll are adults. Same thing at work...well not really.
I wish at work people would just come in and do their job and go home get a paycheck and everyone is all happy happy joy joy. Instead of grumbling that this section is so hard or that you've had the same section for two/three weeks, suck it up and thank the goddess that your the caretaker and not the one needing taking care of. It's just a job. I don't care that you don't like the way so and so works...it doesn't matter as long as you do YOUR job. I know what I do at work, I know I get my shit done. I'm more and happy to help anyone if needed and am very grateful when someone helps me. I don't want to go to any supervisor and complain of some nonsense that isn't hurting anyone. Now if a resident is being neglected because of it or a coworker has been injured mentally/physically then yea lets go and draw some attention to it. Or even if there's a better way to do something that makes our jobs easier and faster (like hiring more people so you can have shower aides) then I'm all for it.
I'm done with drama (except for certain t.v. shows and movies). In the words of Thumper "If ya can't say anything nice....then don't say anything at all. "
All and all when it comes to my coworkers and family members...they have their good points. Sometimes you have to look very, very, very closely to find them. That's what you have to do though...you have to step back when some one is busy pissin' in your Wheaties and you've had it up to your eyebrows with them and look. Think about any positive things that person has done, if not for you personally they surely have done something for someone else. How ever big or small...maybe they helped a lil 'ol lady across the street once or maybe they always open doors for people who have their hands full. Just concentrate on the positive and stay back till you can hold a reasonable conversation with them. It works.
