Well I think I’m pissing some people off, but that’s okay. They really haven’t seen anything yet. It will be a little extra work for me, but that’s okay.
I didn’t get up at 6:30 like I had planned, but I did get to work by 9:30 which really, for me lately, isn’t that bad. I was able to get things started like I wanted. There is still a lot of work left to do today but we will just have to deal with a long day. I, too, will have to deal with a long day.
It’s break time again. And yes, I did upset a few people and more are to come.
So here’s the thing. There is one guy who is really upset about some of the new rules and so far they don’t even affect him. The funny thing is, while I don’t know he has stolen something from me, if I had to guess I would say he has. And, on top of that, I know he would!
But the big thing with him is that he is friends with the other people…some of which I “know” has been taking things. While I can’t prove it, I know I’m right. I would love to be able to catch her. In fact, there were some things that were left unattended last night when I left work and this morning they were not there. I’m guessing she took them. Somebody did and this one person in particular is about the phone one who was there.
One of the things I did figure out between yesterday and today is that I really do need to change my hiring practices. But the area I am in is really difficult to hire good people – especially for what we pay. While we don’t pay the absolute minimum, we don’t pay that much above it, either. But there has got to be something I could do and I think some heads are really going to roll. I don’t know if this will work but we will just have to sit back and see.
And this might not change anything. And, some of the things I think people are taking are things I can’t really keep under lock and key. That truly is the frustrating part. Actually, that is one of two frustrating parts. The other is that everyone involved, and who I think “might” be involved are friends.
Some of the new hiring practices are not that “far,” and by fair I mean “legal.” I don’t want to go there but I really think I might need to.
I think I’ve rambled enough and had a long enough break. I need to get back and take care of some of the other things I need to get done. I have a lot of notes I need to make tonight and a lot of sorting through paper in my office that I need to do. I still have a lot of paperwork…and cleaning…that needs to get done.
