For the past two years I dreaded this time of year. Dreaded is even a gross understatement. I dreaded girlie appointments a helluva lot less than coming to work this time of year. But that was the past.
Today is the first day of school for the teachers and usually that means PeopleAcrossTheHall flip out. For the most part this year, its been calm. For the most part this year, they’re just annoying. For the most part this year, I can just laugh it off. There are still moments that I want to choke them because they make things harder than they have to be. Fortunately, those moments are few and far between. Fortunately, those moments are usually limited to days when I have to deal with their flipouts before I had my morning coffee. Fortunately, those moments are nothing like they were in the past because we learned how to co-exist.
I wasn’t looking forward to coming to work today because of the past but I put on my best happy face and told myself it won’t be all that bad. Thank goodness for the attitude self-adjustment. My biggest bitches so far today is that someone stopped me to complain about someone else while I was carrying something heavy and that PeopleAcrossTheHall can’t close my office door on their way out so I’m not distracted by noise when I’m working on scripts. That’s not all that bad.
