Arrogance is not My Name

Well now aren’t I a little red faced. I am always trying to get the younger staff I work with to look ahead to see how their actions assist their co-workers coming in later. Making everyone’s job flow easier. I often receive a look like I am crazy. And I find this more and more. People always think that it is not up to them. Not their responsibility. And that drives me crazy.

Now twice this week I have had to restock the staff room. Once with sugar. Once with coffee. The sugar had been out since Saturday. I was annoyed. This also happens when someone drinks the last pot of coffee and does not make another. Oooooohhhhh this is at the top of my rage inducing list. (Not that I say anything…..out loud) I can go on and on. Having said that:

As I am grousing in my head about having to waste my time getting coffee. Why could someone else not have done it? When it hit me. I am being just as inconsiderate when in a pique of unuttered rage chose not to remake coffee…..refill sugar/coffee omg. Here I am ranting and raving about this behaviour and I am doing the same thing. Abashed I climbed the stairs and made a pot of coffee. I did however chose a different blend and brand. If I am taking that miniscule little time to go and get it I get to chose what I bring up.

Lesson learned. Now to actively implement.

Word of the Day Challenge #77-Untitled Poem

Grotesque
leering faces
drool dripping
liver flacid lips
pursed
desiring
chasing that final kiss.
Words
promises made
money flashed
as thought that could erase
reality
of shriveled bodies
wherein resides ego
which equates to strength
to power
within.
Float along
haze of despair
bought or sold
there are bills to pay.
Actresses all
ignoring the vile looks
groping hands
alcohol laced whispers
walking through
knowing their place.
He is the worst.
Stand aside.
Let me at him.
Porky Pig and his retinue.
Ribald jokes
roaring laughter
eyes meet eyes
and he pulls away.
Come hither
come yon
follow me here
follow me there
follow me out
for my dear…..
death has come calling
no repentance for you.
