Ramblage...

So this morning I get into this ridiculously loud and unnecessary argument with The Bestest...is it worth the arguing? No...

And what was it over? This stupid blog I wrote yesterday:


He asked me why I didn't tell him I wrote it...well for one, he's subscribed. You get an alert when I post a blog so I don't need to tell you anything. Granted, he was in the blog and the rule is if I put him in a blog, alert him so he can be one of the first people to read it but I KNEW it was something we ALREADY discussed and I didn't want to be like "Go read it" and cause more discussion on something that WOULD turn into a "heated debate".

So he's standing over my shoulder reading my reply I'm writing to a reader...reading what I've typed outloud....*sigh*....only to stop mid sentence, call me an asshole AGAIN and then turn and walk away.

Ummmm, no one asked you and how rude!!!!

So I stopped typing and I walk over to where he is to explain to him WHY I'm validated in catching a little attitude because of the tellers negligence since he wants to continue to call me an asshole at will. It turns into a shouting match which my neighbors probably thought was going to escalate into domestic violence because when we stopped talking was when I realized HOW quiet it was. I was kind of embarrassed for yelling like a damn fool over something so asinine.

But after all my yelling and calming down, I realized that many people have jobs but have no intentions of doing them well at all EVEN THOUGH they are being paid to do them. My job gets done at the end of the day so how I do it is of no consequence...except for those few times when I NEED to interact with our Clients, Consultants, and Owners. Then I adjust how I work in an effort to cater to them within reason. If I eff up at work and it's because of something I SHOULD have been paying attention to, I take the L and do it moving. I can count on one hand how many times I've made  mistake here...no I'm not perfect but I have VERY LITTLE room for error in my position so efficiency is prided far more than how quickly it can get done.

And that was my entire point I was trying to make...if the damn teller was taking his job seriously, I wouldn't have had to get all testy in the first place. Cause and effect people...cause and effect. LOL

My coffee cup is damn near empty and that was just me wanting to ramble...thank you for reading this unnecessary shat LOL

I don't have access to myspace here at work so I can't comment on the previous blog itself in relation to this blog and the argument and the point made and being made.

But what I can do is wonder why you just didn't tell him. It seems to me like one rule was set in place.

...the rule is if I put him in a blog, alert him so he can be one of the first people to read it...

Now granted, the emphasized usage of the A word is just wrong but... Why you ain't just tell him? LOL. Which would have been worse...the heated discussion you were avoiding by not telling hum first or the heated shouting match that ensued afterwards when he found out you didn't tell him first?

@ She Gave Me The Keys: he wasn't pissed that I wrote the blog with him in it LOL he got mad at me this morning because he said I could have been nicer to the teller and consider the unknown as to why he was messing up....The Bestest threw all the facts out the window and told me to only deal with the unknown...what???? THAT'S why we got in the argument...

She Gave Me the Keys said...

Well sht. Did I read it all wrong? LOL. My bad. So wait...when did he call you an asshole? *scratching head* It MUST have something to do with the blog I CAN'T read. Doesn't it?? I know it does...

Assertive Wit said...

yes...you are correct LOL

She Gave Me the Keys said...

smh...my bad. blame it on coffee's absence.

I may be an asshole myself because heck I would have acted the same way...sheesh!
PLUS, I've worked at a bank before so I probably would have been a tiny bit more upset...

At the end of the day, it IS your money and with this recession, every bit counts!

I'm not saying you were right, but I can't say be patient next time because I would be a hypocrite!

Be fair & civil in your commenting. If you can't manage that...well be unfair & rude and I'll respond. Yes, those are your only two options :)
