Virgo Women/BLOG

One of my popular post here in my blog is the one I posted on VIRGO MEN. But I wanted to do something on VIRGO WOMEN and just so happens… I’m one MYSELF.

I’m going to give you a BALANCED post by sharing in each paragraph the beautiful and the ugly about us VIRGOS.

Virgo WOMEN……. are some CRAZY, FUN LOVING, LAUGHING, GOOD TIME HAVING, PEOPLE. We love to laugh and surround ourselves with loving people. At work, my coworkers say they can hear me laughing all over the building. I’ve always laughed loud, because it hits me in my mind first, then it carries out to my mouth. Virgo women are those that walk up in a gathering, and THEN THE PARTY STARTS!!!!

VIRGO WOMEN……..ARE VERY very very VERY territorial about our kids, family and friends. We don’t play when it comes to them at ALL. If my momma is not answering her phone. She knows I’m going to BLOW HER PHONE OUT OF HER PURSE. She knows this. She knows I’m that CRAZY child that will jump in my car, and be on my way to kick her door in. LOL  To make sure she’s not dead or cant get to her phone. She knows this about me. My dad the same way, don’t let me call him and he’s not answering his cellphone. They know I’m crazy like that, so she will let me know where she’s going ahead of time so I won’t worry, and I have all the places she goes on SPEED DIAL… and she knows if she doesn’t answer…. I’M ON MY WAY!!! My daughter the same way. We both have iPhones, when she’s out and about (( sometimes)) (( Me: rolls my eyes)) she’ll send me her location. Most times she’s with her boy friend so I’m good with that, because he’s good people and he KNOWS me and her dad DON’T PLAY when it comes to her. But one time we were suppose to go someplace and she wasn’t answering her phone early in the morning.. Baaaaby… I put my shoes on, jumped in my car and I was at her apartment in seconds (( she lives just around the corner from me)). I stuck my key in her door and she jumped up out of her sleep. She knew then, that momma don’t play and she betta answer the phone. LOL LOL This is why Virgo Women don’t mess with people’s kids, we stay in our lane. That’s because we don’t want anyone to mess with ours.

VIRGO WOMEN…..are LOYAL. We LOVE our friends. We will tell them the truth and not sugar coat anything. Over the years, I had to learn how to be truthful but at the same time, say it in a way that it won’t offend the person. Most people can handle the truth, but it has to be spoken in a gentle way, and sometimes when we want people to really get it, we can say things rough. But, we don’t mean that you are dumb or stupid, we ‘re just passionate about you getting what we are bringing to you.  We won’t stand for anyone to talk about our friends. We feel that if you have something negative to say about my friend, then go tell if to YOUR friends. We are not the people you bad mouth our friend to. We don’t play that. One thing about us tho, if we find out that you have been DISLOYAL all the time with us, using things we told you against us, USING us, talking behind our backs about us, WE WILL CUT YOU OFF LIKE A DEAD TREE IN THE GROUND!!! We won’t have ANYTHING to say to you ever. If you keep sending us emails, calling our phones and leaving messages and we don’t respond.. LET IT GO. We are done. It makes us madder and madder, please believe we are sitting back thinking of ways to chop your whole body up, and package it in a fingernail polish bottle to send to …….. you fill in the blank. But then of course, we feel bad, and ask God to forgive us for those  CRAZY thoughts and get back to our lives. We just want PEACE!

VIRGO WOMEN… Love to communicate. We have to make sure that we know exactly what is going on in order to do things correctly. I may ask you 100 questions, because I want to get things right. I want direct details. We are some investigators too. You can’t just tell a Virgo woman anything. We’ll get to the bottom of the truth no matter how long it takes. We know people in high places and we will use all of our resources. I remember I was dating this guy we were very close. One day I woke up in the middle of the night and had a feeling that he was out doing something he had no business doing. I jumped in my car about 3-4 in the morning and went to the areas I know he goes to all the time, and saw his car in the drive way of someone he had been with previously. We were done as a couple. But the point I’m making is, we will do our  homework based off what we are feeling and what we may know. It will KILL  a Virgo woman to not act upon her intuition. If Im new at a job and you are the person that comes to me and tell me everything about everyone in the building… Im side eyeing you FIRST. VIRGO women like to get to know people for ourselves. You cant tell us about other people. NOW.. WE WILL KEEP EVERYTHING YOU SAID IN OUR MINDS… WE TAKE MENTAL NOTES ON EVERYTHING….. because we may need it later. Because when we realize that person was right, we have all the first hand information stored in our minds, and we WILL DISCONNECT FROM THAT PERSON ON SITE!

Virgo women.. well some. Don’t like to go through people’s private things. I just can’t. Its about privacy to me. I was dating this therapist years ago, I met him because I use to clean his office building. When he was gone, I loved going up in his room and snooping through his drawers, desk and other things. I couldn’t wait to find something new, so that I could bring it up the next day. Boy was that ignorant and silly. I don’t care whats in his office, room, phone, home…. just as long as we’re good.. Im fine. NOW……. If some information come to me.. that’s when the VIRGO WOMAN HAS TO INVESTIGATE….. and trust meeeeeeeeeee.. WE INVESTIGATE LOL Imma leave this right there! LOL

VIRGO WOMEN… Work!!! I never complain at my job. I do my work and do it well. My bosses loves me and I love them. I don’t give them any lip, any talk back, I don’t disrespect them, or curse in front of them even if they are comfortable saying a curse word in front of me. When a VIRGO woman is not feeling it, she wont go to work and spread her irritated atmosphere, she will stay home and get herself together. We work hard!!! Once a VIRGO WOMAN know her job description, she will run the business like its hers. VIRGO WOMEN cant stand complaining, whinny people. It irritates our souls to hear about aches and pains when that person can be in bed. Virgo women hate complaints!!!! We cant stop whoa is me type of people. I tell people to BOSS UP!!! When we work with people who complain, it messes up the whole atmosphere. We cant stand tell a tells. We believe in going to the person  and having a smiley face talk with them, after that.. WE DON’T DEAL WITH YOU ANYMORE. To a Virgo you are INVISIBLE…. NOT EVEN HERE., NOT EVEN BORN, NOT EVEN KNOWN. WE ARE DONE!

Life Lesson- Glad I Got A Chance To See Mom Cry/BLOG

Image result for life lessons

 

Growing up, I remember so clearly my mother crying many times after hanging up the phone from taking care of business.

My mother was the type to kinda “go with the flow”, when it came to her business over the phone back in the day. If it wasn’t anything immediate she would take what ever they told her, but when it  came to something she needed done now, she didn’t know the right questions to ask, and when she was rejected she’d cry and it would make me so MAD.

Can you imagine how I felt as a child, a person who knew how to express herself, knew what kind of questions I needed to ask in order to get business taking care of and couldn’t help or offend my mother? I hated when she cried. I remember saying, “When I get grown aint nobody gon make me cry”. I think back on this Life Lesson and I’m glad I got a chance to see her cry, because it helped me to learn how to take care of business. It made me strong to where I learned ways to communicate in order to get things done without cursing anyone out. Simply by knowing the right questions to ask.

When I got my first place, I remember thinking, I’m a mother now. I have to make arrangements over the phone, ask the right questions to get my business taken care of. I remember writing down questions I needed to ask before I made my phone calls, and each time they were answered AND UNDERSTOOD by me, I would go on to the next. If I didn’t understand I would ponder that question 3-4 different ways in order to get a true answer. I thought to myself, there is no way in the world that I’m going to hang up this phone and not have made progress. In person….. I’m nothing to toy with. I’m very very friendly and this is why I will not accept anything less than my business being taking care of.

I prefer in person, eye to eye contact. That way a person can understand MY ENERGY, MY PERSISTENCE, MY DIRECTNESS. I never ever ever, ask a person to go beyond the company policy to accommodate me. If you can do it, DO IT. Don’t give me the run a round, because I do ask for names, badge numbers, and phone numbers to your extension just in case I need to ASK MORE QUESTIONS. I’m not a pest, because I don’t want to stay on the subject no more than you do. If I’m speaking with you over the phone and I feel I’m not getting answers… TRUST AND BELIEVE…. I’M ON MY WAY UP THERE TO SEE YOU FACE TO FACE. I will never curse anyone out, and if that person cant/wont help me, then I’ll talk to a supervisor. Even with that, I ONLY talk to people who can get me results. PERIOD.

I watched my mother cry too many times in my childhood days. But I must add, TODAY.. .my Mother DO NOT PLAY. LOL LOL She says she learned from the best. All of her kids (4) are great communicators and baby when I tell you now…. SHE WILL EMBARRASS YOU, because she knows how to get her point across. Sometimes I have to walk away if we’re in a store or place of business LOL LOL . She wont stop until she get her questions ask. Its so funny because she has come along way. I’m proud of her.

Men who WORK-WORK-WORK TOO MUCH!/BLOG

Hey,

 

Meet … MY GOD NIECE.. MY GOD SISTERS DAUGHTER, AND ONLY CHILD!

brittney brittney

Her parents met in High School got married and had my niece. They were both smart, she got her Masters in Accounting, and he went to school for Heating and Cooling! They built 2 business together and own a total of 13 homes. All while growing up he told my niece that he wanted to pass the business down to her. He taught her how to open a bank account and save money. He taught her about buying homes and selling them. He taught her about how people are, and to be careful of shady business deals. How to mingle and rub arms with people who could help her with her business.

My niece dad thought he was spending “quality” time with the family,  my niece grew up (( grown woman)), they all grew apart, and my sister divorced. He wanted to work all day and night, weekends too.. to “build” the family business, but my sister wanted time, love and trips together as a couple and a family while they grew old. My niece dad felt it was best to build up, then take trips later in life. All through the years of my niece’s dad wanting her to take over the family business, she didn’t want that for her life.  But she couldn’t tell him because this was HIS dream and it would break his heart. Stop putting pressure on your kids… STOP IT!!! Just because you found something that worked for you, don’t pressure your kids to follow your footsteps, when they want to do something DIFFERENT. It only makes sense to YOU that you built something that’s solid. And that’s OKAY..but your child doesn’t want that for their lives.. Deal with it. Yes, its a great idea, yess you struggled and sweated, but this is NOT your child’s dream.

 How does a child tell her parent/s  (( in this case the dad, because her mom saw it coming))… THANK YOU for grooming me for the family business since BIRTH… but UM NO THANK YOU… this is not MY career path or MY DREAM?

I have seen it first hand. I knew it all along. My niece wants a family with a husband, both have jobs, meet up at evening, have dinner , talk, family time, and then bed time. My niece dad spent all day and night even Sundays building the “business”… and no one wanted it but him. He became selfish, at first it was the money, then it was the POWER now its the INFLUENCE of the LOCAL AND WORLD WIDE LEADERS IN HIS FIELD AND OUT. He’s now engaged, and guess who will spend all the money… HIS NEW WIFE.. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHA. AND HER NEW MAN! HAHAHAHHAHHAHAH..  THE MOMENT HE DIES! ((( YALL GON LEARN))) A woman who hasn’t spent a DAY in the building of the process. My sister is happy, and  gladly to pass on the money without the MAN. HAHAHAHAHAHHA

The relationship of that dad -daughter is little to none. This is how men are disappointed, and in their feelings about their kids, because they spent their whole lives DREAMING , HOPING, WISHING AND GROOMING their kids would follow their footsteps.

Meet Jenae from Sweetie Pies and her new FIANCEE

 

I was just Congratulating Jenae Wallick on her engagement this weekend to her trainer Arthur Shivers III. I’m so happy for them and especially her. She’s the mother of Tim from Sweetie Pies on the OWN Network. Jenae was once engaged to Tim, but things didn’t work out between them. It was so hard to watch. She really loved him, but he wanted to move out of town to expand the family business. I believed he knew she didn’t want to leave St. Louis, because she wanted to be near her family, but he went anyway. They broke up, and shortly after he moved to California.

I really hope that Tim slows down enough to enjoy LIFE and HIS ONLY CHILD/SON. People like him who work, work, work, swears up and down they enjoy their lives. They’ll be the same ones when they’re in their 60’s saying how much they wish they had slowed down to enjoy family and friends more. I personally don’t want to hear that mess.  Because along the way, people have constantly beat it in their heads, but all they could see is the “business”. I see it ALL THE TIME ON UNDERCOVER BOSS. I have watched every episode, and that is one of the #1 thing these men say… yessss and even the women bosses. They always thought they were spending time with their kids, when really they weren’t doing anything but MISSING OUT… providing, giving kisses, hugs, a few down to earth conversations.. AND THE REST OF THEIR TIME.. BUYING THEM THINGS, AND TELLING THEM THEY WANT THEM TO TAKE OVER THE COMPANY WHEN THEY’RE OLDER… UM excuse meeeeeeee..  BUT your kids don’t want to do that SHIT! That’s YOUR dream! And don’t you DARE be DISAPPOINTED when they tell you this!

I AM La’Crease.. and I don’t have to do anything else.

Finding My * your* Purpose in Life 4 ~ La’Crease’s Blog

purpose 7

Entertainment, Business, Women and Teens

Finding my purpose in life.
What is my calling? What are my gifts?

Entertainment- When I was 14 years old I was IN LOVE with Prince. I told my mom when he come to Detroit, I wanted to be there. She took me, not once, but twice. What a dream come true. Ever since then I fell in love with Entertainment. Not only was I enjoying Prince, but I love the live experience, the back ground singers, and especially the musicians. I love the way it made me feel. I felt so alive. When I moved out on my own I started going to more and more concerts. I would win concert tickets off the radio, and when I went to pick up my tickets, I met a wonderful Radio Personality for WJLB name Janet G. She was so nice and sweet to me. I love her to this day!!! There were many times when she would call me down and she would just give me concert tickets, that was often. I believe that she played a huge role in me loving entertainment as much as I do. I enjoyed going to see the Male Dancers as well 4-5 times a week, just to see them do routines fast and slow.

I missed a lot of concerts waiting on others to go with me, or to get their money together, so I started going alone. It was hard in the beginning. I started buying tickets without telling anyone. Seem like every time I went with others, I was getting seats way in the back, but when I went alone I was sitting in rows 1-5….. every time. I went to several plays before I knew who Tyler Perry was, but when I went to one that was terrible…. I vowed to never, ever go see another play again. I also enjoyed comedy. At concerts and plays I started paying more attention to what was going on back stage than what I came to see. I wanted to be apart of a backstage crew. I enjoy planning and how things came together. I absolutely LOVE ENTERTAINMENT. To name a few of my favorite concerts and plays that I’ve attended would be…… Anita Baker, The Late Great Gerald Levert, Barry White and Luther Vandross, Karen Clark-Sheard, Shirley Caesar, Missy, Mary J Blige, Janet Jackson. Destiny Child, Kelly Price, Jill Scott, Chante Moore, Maxwell, and Tyler Perry. Too many to name. I know for a fact, that Entertainment is apart of my calling.

Business- I LOVE taking care of business. I love to hear YES… in all my business ventures. Sometimes I push it , but its all good. When I was in my 20’s I learned how to speak well over the phone and in person to get my way. My family and friends would call me and have me to pretend to be them because they were nervous. I’m good over the phone, but face to face .. IM EVERYTHING. Seem like I can never get my way through email because I come off too persistent, and people LOVE to tell me No because they can’t see me. It started for me when I was a young gurl, my mom would make business calls and they would always tell her No, or make her have to do all of these unnecessary steps. Sometimes I felt that they sense that she was nervous about handling her business * which she was*, and they always gave her the hardest time. That bothered me. So, I made sure that when I became an adult, that wasn’t going to happen to me. Just tonight she called me and gave me a phone number to call in the morning so that I can take care of her business for her.

I learned that you have to have all your questions written down before you make calls. You have to speak with authority and know what you want. You can’t be afraid to ask question. Its your business, and you should feel comfortable asking whatever you want and need to know. I put together a lot of things, and in order to do this, I have to make these kinds of calls. If I have to see them in person….. that’s even better. I know for a fact, that the business is apart of my calling.

Women and Teens- I’ve always had a connection to them I learned to keep secrets at a young age, and it was needed in order to gain the trust of women and teens. No matter how deep the story is, God has always given me the tolerance to hear all kinds of unbelievable stories. I use to cry a lot when I’d hear the stories because they would be so devastating. But over the years God has strengthen me in this area where I’m able to listen and not take it personal. I’ve put together many Women’s Gathering, where we get personal, talk about God, and discuss how to deal with issues in relationships. I’ve worked in Detroit Public Schools for over 9 years total and I loved it. When my book is released, I know so many women will read it and change their lives. I know for a fact, that Women and Teens are apart of my calling.

Always Ask Questions To Get Your Answers………………… * My Story* Crees Blog Entry

police car
Mon March 3, 2014 .. I called the Police Recovery Station to find out if my van was recovered, when I was told by the Officer that she didn’t see it in the computer she told me to go back to the station where I filed it at, and to take my report with me to find out what happened.
 
 
I was heated when I was told to go back to the station. First of all, when I went the first time the Officers were terrible. If the Leaders of the city are like this… imagine the citizens. I have never in my life seen a bunch of NON MOTIVATED people in my life.
 
 
I got to the police station and this older, “get with you” kinda thick older black man was at the medal detector booth.. looking at his phone texting somebody.. NEVER LOOKED UP AT ME.. hollering real loud… MAY I HELP YOU.. MAY I HELP YOU?.. SO, I said yesss, I came down here last Tuesday and filled out a report for my Van being missing.. I did it the same day it was stolen, received THIS paper and was told to call to check up on the van. I said well I called this morning, and the lady on the phone told me that there is no report under these numbers I was given. She told me that I would have to go back to where I got the report and talk to them. He said well let me see the paper. I gave it to him, and he said okay let me go to the computer to check it.
 
 
He checked it and said in a real LOUD mean voice……. “I DONT SEE WHY SHE TOLD YOU THAT, CAUSE IM LOOKING AT IT RIGHT NOW”.. WHO DID YOU TALK TO MAAM???????? I looked at him, because he was screaming. I said I TALK TO AN OFFICER….. THE PEOPLE WHO ANSWER THE PHONE!!!!!!!!!! He said what’s her name. I SAID I DONT KNOW THE OFFICER NAME WHO ANSWERED THE PHONE. Then as he was looking at it, the way he was staring at the screen, you can tell he was looking at a mistake or something. Being the reason why the OFFICER I spoke with on the phone couldn’t see it in the system. HE KNEW IT.. BUT IT KILLED HIM TO ADMIT that *SUSAN FALLONI* ( The Police Officer who took my report) DIDNT finish it.
 
 
As we’re talking, there is this white officer sitting in the further back seat, and to the window…… a black officer kinda young came in with a bag of Burger King or some resturant food. She saw my face while talking to him and was TRYING SO HARD TO BE MY FRIEND, trying to make eye contact with me, because she saw my facial expression, but you can tell that later on she could turn on me, cause of the way me and her PARTNER were talking to each other.
 
 
So, he’s explaining to me that Susan’s SUPERVISER would be in later, and that I could talk to her/him because Susan and the supervisor are the only person who can go in and “touch” the report. OKAY I WAS COOL WITH THAT.. He EVEN SAID WE COULD DO IT OVER THE PHONE. THIS Negro GOT MADDDDDDDDDDDDDDD WHEN I SAID THIS… “SO let me ask you this…….is this NORMAL, for a person to come into the police station to FILE A REPORT OF A MISSING VEHCILE, and then have to come back down here because ANOTHER OFFICER OVER THE PHONE CANT FIND IT IN THE SYSTEM? He said maam LISTEN….. IM not authorize to go in and do anything to her report. I SAID OKAY YOU SAID THAT.. I GOT THAT.. IM ASKING YOU… IS THIS NORMAL FOR A PERSON TO HAVE TO COME BACK IN THE STATION TO TALK TO THE SUPERVISORS ABOUT THEIR REPORT??? So now the black lady is staring at ME.. LIKE “NO SHE AINT”… THE WHITE LADY LOOKING TOO… SO… I TOLD THE OFFICER SIR……… I’m DONE TALKING TO YOU! DONE!!! DONE!!! This NEGRO got up and went back to the medal detector desk and sat his a@@ down. He got on the phone…. and continued texting SMH He was glad to be able to go back to what he was doing before I walked in.
 
 
So since the black lady was staring wanting to join in on the conversation SO BADLY, I TURNED TO HER and asked….why couldn’t I just called the number they told me to call to check on my van, LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE instead of coming back down here because its not in the system? She was looking at me like THAT AINT MY REPORT!!! I GAVE HER THIS LOOK.. LIKE … THEN WHY THE “FORK” ARE YOU STARING DOWN MY THROAT WHEN YOU DONT/CANT ANSWER MY QUESTION??????????.. If you gon stare at us, with a fry hanging half way out of your mouth… THEN IMMA ASK YOU QUESTIONS TOO.!!! She grabbed her food and drink and took her a@@ to the back. SO QUICK LOL LOL LOL. I WAS DONE WITH HER.. NEVER SEEN HER AGAIN.
 
 
The white lady was the only one left in the room, BEFORE she ADMITTED THAT SUSAN FALLONI didn’t finish the report… SHE KEPT SAYING TO ME.. OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER… PEOPLE MAKE MISTAKES, EVERYBODY MAKES MISTAKES… THEN she asked.. don’t you make mistakes on your job? WHICH then I knew I was getting closer to a confession that she knew Susan FALLONI* DIDNT FINISH MY WORK. THEN SHE finally admitted like I WANTED the clown man officer TO DO. She sat there and admitted what I wanted HIM to admit. She was very nice about it, she explained it was a mistake. I was cool with that. All I wanted was for HIM to admit it. And that was the REASON why the OFFICER THIS MORNING COULDNT SEE IT IN HER SYSTEM !!!!!
 
 
With everything that I’m going through right now. I don’t have any EXTRA time to deal with foolishness and non motivated people. I’m on the move and when I need to ask questions concerning MY life…. I need them answered. And I want you all who is reading this. Ask QUESTIONS. Never be so geeked on people positions that you’re intimated about what they will or wont do to/for you. I didn’t care that they were officers. So what they didn’t want to answer my DIRECT IN YOUR FACE EYE TO EYE QUESTIONS, for fear of revealing the TRUTH and getting their fellow officer in trouble for not completing my paper work. I cleared that whole front end out, and I didn’t curse, raise my voice, or get physical. All I did was ask questions to get the answers to MY ISSUE.
 
 
Refuse to just “go home” without your questions being answered. These people know the answers to what you need to know. Always check your tone of voice, attitude, your facial expression, and never curse when taking care of your business. Be a good listener, and AVOID doing business over the phone as much as possible when it comes to something serious. People will tell you just enough over the phone without telling you everything, just to get to the next call. Speak with people who can help you. Never ever, speak to people who are the first to say “May I help you”? Then after you’ve explained for 10 minutes your story, they say… well I cant help you, you need to talk with “such and such”.
 
 
Always approach serious situations like this…. Hello, Yes!!!!! Who can I speak with concerning a incomplete Police Report on my Vehicle that was filed by Officer Susan Falloni? Give direct eye to eye contact. Never ever allow someone to get into a “who did you talk to, what was their name, BACK AND FORTH MATCH with you. That’s time consuming and it doesn’t matter because “THEY” didn’t take care of it when you did speak to them. Be clear, and only ask questions that will get you results. NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER be intimated by ANYONE. This is why people are always asking me to teach them how to get answers. Judgement Day is coming for everybody, never be scared to ask questions about YOUR BUSINESS… to people who are “DOWN HERE ON EARTH” just like you. Look them in the eye, and make sure that you get your business taken care of. Do follow ups. Use words to make them remember you. For example: Hello, My name is LaCrease Walker and I came into The Police Station on THIS PAST MONDAY MARCH 3, just before noon and spoke with YOU about YOUR Officer Susan Falloni WHO DIDNT COMPLETE MY STOLEN VEHICLE POLICE REPORT THAT WAS FILED BY ME. Don’t let them interrupt you when you are saying that sentence straight through. When you don’t say “straight” to the point STATEMENTS like that, they LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, to interrupt you to ask,, when did you call, who did you talk to, what time of day was it, what number did they give you to call? If you allow them to do this to you, it will throw you off your whole call. It will make room for you to forget your questions, and to second guess why you’re even calling. Write down your questions if you have to before you call.  Know what you’re talking about, do research on your business. Speak clearly. And ALWAYS.. ALWAYS…. SPEAK WITH AUTHORITY!!!

Business is Business… Don’t forget it…Crees Blog Entry

lilcreeI guess this week is all about BUSINESS . I just got off the phone with a good friend who happens to live in my apartment building. He’s a young guy but today he learned real quick… BUSINESS IS BUSINESS and PLAY TIME IS PLAY TIME.
I always see him down stairs talking with members of management and I always thought that was bad. Because if one day you need something taken care of, they will put you on the LAST TO DO LIST. because they feel you would “understand”. But I knew that one day it was going to be a problem somewhere down the line.
Well, yesterday someone stole a part off his car that was parked in the gated lot. He was pretty upset about it and when he went to management, they told him they wasn’t going to pay for it and that was the end of that. I told my friend the reason why you’re taking it so hard is because A. you thought that since you hang with them and know them, that when it came to business they would take care of it. I told him, when it comes to members of management…..you have to be about your business. You can’t sit in the office with them, or run down there telling them everything that’s going on. Being familiar, and smiling with them. I learned that myself years ago. So when its time for business with these people, and you’re talking face to face in a very low tone with direct eye contact…. THEY KNOW YOU’RE SERIOUS.
Living here where there are many people coming and going because of the hospitals, businesses, sports arenas and bars. I learned to SPEAK… and keep it moving. I don’t sit and stand around in the lobby, or hang out in the office or anything. I’m very serious when it comes to taking care of business, and I don’t want anyone to “FEEL” they know me so well, that they can talk to me sideways, or tell me “No” or “I’ll get back to you” just because we talk outside of the office. My friends always wonder how do you always get what you want? Its because I don’t play…. meaning I keep business business and play time play time.
For some reason when management is in their “personal playtime” mood, they want everyone to be apart of their “fun and cool” side. And many people fall for it, but then as soon as its the next week when the manager has went back to his” business side”… people that he wanted so badly to impress by showing himself ” human” cant deal with it. That’s one of the BIGGEST ISSUES with employees today.
