More Growth Required

I learned something about myself today. I still have a ton of work to do on myself.

When I get frustrated, I have the worst habit of not saying anything and being really short with the person. My tone becomes whiplashish. I hate that I do this and realize that I really have to learn to be better.

I need to remember to take a deep breath. When I am frustrated.

I need to remember that I do not need to engage with everyone who says something stupid to me. Those who like to tell me that we can reprogram our self checkouts so that it does not ask how many bags you used when you put in that you were using your own bags. I said it has to do with the scale and asking for the bags is part of the payment. She did not like that answer and I think she may have gone and said something. I know who she is lol and I remember stuff like that. But I did not need to engage with her.

I need to remember that I have got to rein in my expectations. I have a bad habit of expecting everyone else to act the same way that I do. And everyone is different. People do not think like I do and I am aware of this.

I have this bizarre mixture of thoughts going through my head. I am not even really sure what they are about.

I realized today that I have a lot of growth left. I have a lot of things to learn and I look forward to doing so. It is uncomfortable to recognize this lack within me.

I am going to leave it here because I am ramblin. Tired. Hungry.

Deep Breath In

There is that one person.

The one who is tech challenged. Who does not want to hear a word that I say even though it is something to do with Scene+

First time she looked at me blankly.

Second time the crease begins.

Third time she begins to nod her head.

Fourth she appears to have gotten it.

But she did not.

Then I have to come back and explain more information.

I explained it once and went right over her head.

Finally I just walked away.

Customers were coming to tell me the internet was down and they could not be registered.

Do you have a box #?

Yes.

Do you have a physical address?

Yes.

Did she ask you?

No.

Back to the table we go and once more I explain what she needs to do. And once more when she does it the way that I have now told her umpteen dozen times it works to register the customer.

I walked away shaking my head. Sometimes it is better to keep the mouth shut and the thoughts to myself.
