Um, no thank you.
I know I have been complaining (bitching) about work lately, and I would like to retract previously aired complaints.
I complain when I feel frustrated, when I feel like I have given a lot and it seems to be going unnoticed.
I do not give to get and my work MO is pretty much work as if you own the company, while trying to keep some balance in your life.
I still have trouble with that second part. hahaha
As of late, my bosses (1 & 2) have made it more than worth my while to remain where I am doing what I do. Wind blowing and appreciated beyond belief!
I really do work at a great firm, and I work for great bosses and I love what I do and the people I work with….with the exception of the receptionist whom, unfortunately, I hired myself. Oh, and I still dislike my pain in the @ss commute. hahaha
As for my helper, I was told – She is a really nice person (and she is) and she is a great receptionist (and she is that too) but outside of that….she really wants to help, but….
Ok, so I really and truly thought – I can straight up train anyone. Guess what? Not so much.
We shall see what the other side of tax season holds. She still has time to turn things around. But that is an inside job. I cannot make you care about the quality of your work nor can I make you care about our firm as much as I do.
Speaking of which, yesterday, I made a point to show all of the accountants who have had to work on Saturdays for a month now just how much I care about and appreciate them.
I sent them an email about noon….
Lunch is on me peeps! Enjoy.
I enjoy working with each and every one of you and I love my job and bosses!
1 Italian sandwich (for Boss #1)
1 Chicken Parmesan sandwich with light cheese (for Boss #2)
1 chicken, apple and something salad for (Co-worker who is specifically trying to watch their weight)
The rest is for all to share and should hit upon each and everyone’s taste!
Happy Saturday people and soon enough I will be working Saturdays AND Sundays and all will be right in the world.
Enjoy and I appreciate you, Happy Valentine’s Day Weekend!!
I ordered and had delivered…..sandwiches, salads, multiple pizzas (to include veggie for our vegetarian), garlic knots and multiple desserts from Domino’s Pizza.
Boy they were all surprised!
And they were each extremely appreciative. They emailed me separately to say thank you in their own way.
I love doing things like that.
And because of my bosses’ generosity towards me, I was able to.
They have been generous to the others too; it is not all about me.
But if you do something great for me, I am going to want to do something great for you that you are not expecting, just to say – Thank you. I really appreciate what you have done.
From what I have heard, there is a lot of pizza left over. So, I am going to reap rewards from what I sown. hahaha
Happy Valentine’s Day Weekend, I hope you totally surprise someone who has done something that has meant a lot to you.
It doesn’t have to be big, just from the heart.
