Weekend Post

I had several half attempts at posting yesterday but just didn't get the chance. It is so hectic here at work and there are times when all I want to do is tear my hair out. See the thing is that I am a perfectionist. That means that I set very high expectations and if things need to get done, they need to get done now. If someone needs something from me, I will do it now and make sure I do it properly. In the same way if I request something to be done, I expect it to be done properly and as soon as possible. I know and understand that not everyone is like this but I find it hard to believe that people can be so lax and nonchalent about stuff. I firmly believe that we are all here to do a job. No matter how much you hate it, cos many of them do. They will bitch and moan about everything in this department, you have a job to do and you need to do it well. You are getting paid for it and my opinion is that if you don't want to be here than fine leave.

I have been having endless staff issues since last week. I guess I shouldn't really care in 2 weeks time I will be out of here but I am not one to leave things in a mess and I just want the new person to be able to step into my shoes and run with it. I am just so tired of staff giving me attitude and not performing and giving me drama. I cant wait to move. And what with my boss that has suddenly decided to play the favouritism card. How pathetic and low can you get.

My weekend was ok - I went to a baby shower on Saturday. One of my friends that used to work with me, is having a baby. I must admit I found it rather boring - as there were more mommies there and nobody that I really knew. Nevertheless it was sweet and lovely. On Saturday afternoon, my mum and I traipsed around Fordsburg. If there is ever a bargain that one is looking for this is the place. There is this shop that sells the most beautiful eastern clothing. They had a sale so I thought I would have a look around and maybe buy something that I liked. The clothes are beautiful and I couldn't really make up my mind. I am not sure if I want something eastern for the engagement party. Ended up meeting some long lost friends. We all used to be really close however after we moved away we kind of drifted apart. Yes - we stayed in contact but its different when you live 50 km apart instead of just down the road. Unfortunately meeting them was somewhat uncomfortable. Its like we don't have anything in common anymore. I asked my mum as we left them - Is it us or them???? lol

The rest of my weekend was spent chilling at home and relaxing. The weekend goes by too quickly and before you know it - its back to the grind of getting through the week....
