I've had a couple of not so fun days back to back at work. I'm someone who really tries to find the silver lining even in the worst of situations but some things really get under my skin. One of those is unexpected change, another is violation of privacy. I've had both!
I had go to Customer Service training outside of the store. I traveled
with coworker and that was mostly fine. It was mostly common sense
stuff, and emphasizing store policy without actually using those words,
when dealing with customers. Some of that really doesn't apply to Amazon
sales, but plenty is still relevant to online sales.
So I went
to that, and then came back to the store for the rest of my shift.. to
my office door ajar. For Loss Prevention reasons, my office is to remain
locked if I am not IN the office. No one is supposed to go into the
office except for myself and Management.
I can't go into the
specific details, but upon checking the security camera, it was verified
that at least one person removed items from the room, and there were
multiple entries of people into the office while I was not there, by
I have noticed several things over the
last few weeks, items out of place on my desk, the restroom door
(private only accessible to my office) open, toilet seat left up, to
name a few. None of which should be happening since no one is supposed

In addition to work shenanigans, I
had another huge change to my schedule yesterday evening, in running
Ringo to doctor's appointment. It wouldn't have been a bad thing on it's
own, but combined with work shenanigans, I was pretty stressed out by
the time we went.
It went smoothly because Osaka wrote down a
list of questions and comments for me to read to the Dr, and he listened
and helped, but since I've never been back there with her, or Ringo I
felt a bit awkward. I've never spoken with his Doctor before and being
around Psychiatrists* always puts me on edge.
*I've been in and
out of therapy since I was very young, and I always feel like I'm under
the microscope when I enter a Therapist's office, regardless of whether
they are a Psychiatrist or Psychologist.
That said, I am doing
well NOW. Osaka made tacos for dinner and it was great. It feels like I
spend all week waiting for the weekend, and then it's over so fast. This
week has been both fast and painfully slow, and I just want it to be
