My very good friend's fiancée passed away about 6 years ago. While at the funeral service, her fiancee's 5 year old nephew passed gas during a very quiet moment. Then you hear a few chuckles from people. After the service people were talking and chuckling about it. It lightened the mood for a few moments.
Of course there's the one team lead that doesn't read her emails before delegating the work to others, because if she reads them she might as well do it. Ummmm, then how do you know what your team is working on. Not to mention how do you know you are not creating double work for the group? For example there were 2 emails about 2 separate orders that were going to the same person but with different addresses and she sends them to 2 different people. The person it is going to is no longer with the company. Ok let's have 2 people start emailing and calling to see where the orders should be going. Use your group wisely and we will shine. If not we look bad then you look bad. Something funny may or may not come from this one. But I moved on from it.
I was thinking about how some people get hazardous pay because they work with hazardous materials. Why don't we get attitude pay, more like bad attitude/negative attitude pay? It takes a lot of energy to deal with those types of people. When you are happy and positive life is so much easier. I�m not talking about the 1-2 moments a month where everybody gets crabby or has a bad attitude. We are human after all. I'm talking about the ones who are nasty all the time. It's like they thrive on take the joy out of other's lives.
I figure I'll keep looking for the positive/funny things in every situation. It will help me stay positive and focused on myself and my journey.
