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.
