Bah, Humbug!

Today, as you can tell, I'm posting.

Yes, this isn't one of my "usual" days for writing. I can give you ONE reason.

I'm at work, I'm on overtime, and the only reason I'm here is for some conference call that just couldn't be rescheduled for a time when I'd NORMALLY be in the office.

So yeah, I'm not really happy about being here, even if I'm getting the pay compensation.

Something about being at your work before you're ready to go back really puts me on edge. I don't know what it is, but I really just wasn't ready to have to be back here yet. In my mind, I've still got ONE full day off coming before I have to deal with this stuff, and yet here I sit, in my control room, machines whining, and I'm taking out my frustrations here by posting about my pissy attitude.

Sorry folks, my Blog, my rules.

I often wonder what it would be like to be that upper corporate office, and make other folks dance to my tune. Would I rub it in their faces, and give the "I said to make it happen, now get to it!" kind of attitude, or would I be more compromising?

I dunno. There are times that the Attilla the Hun type of attitude really appeals to me, and there are other times when I'd much prefer to be a peacekeeper.

I guess it all really depends on who's trying to pick on me as to how I'd prefer to act at any given moment.

Pick on me, reap the whirlwind. Treat me nice, and be treated nice in return.

Isn't that just about true with each and every person?

Your blog! Your rules? What are you thinking?!? ;) Okay, I completely understand. Been there. Done that. At least we, your faithful readers, got something out of it: a blog post.
