Almost time for me to move on? …..Cree’s Blog Entry

angrycustomersI love working with Teens
But this older lady I’m working with…..is killing my Spirits
She’s not a team player… and she makes my job harder
She taught me the ropes… now I can’t stand the site of her… I really wish she would quit…. SHE HAS NO CONNECTION TO THE TEENS OR ANYONE ELSE
She’s always in competition with me
Why did I ignore it so long?
Maybe I wanted to ignore it… who am I?
Well, when I think about it….
The ASST principal is always coming to me for answers
she knows I love my job, she can see it on my face, she looks to me for leadership and knowledge of my job
While my coworker looks at me like “who is she… I was here first”?

The ladies who work in the kitchen tells me ” Sunshine you don’t have to pay for anything… just tell me what you want”
While my coworker wants everything FREE… I always offer to pay for mines… and this is why they want to give it to me… they don’t have to do anything for me
At first she parked in the back.. on a rise so that people can see her “big truck”
But when I said I like to park in the front so I can keep an eye on my van… NOW SHE PARKS IN MY SPOT ***UGH***
When she sees my on my phone, she says her AARP phone is just right for her, then later she signs a contract for a phone …..
Last week I went to the gas station to buy snacks for the kitchen ladies and my 2 coworkers * she’s one of then. I paid attention to everything they all eat and bought them.
They were happy and surprised… but little do they know… I do this for everyone.
Today my coworker * the older lady* went out and bought gifts for one of the ladies… * like I did” trying to compete with me… I laughed
She’s a bragger… brags about everything.. I feel bad for her.
I dont/wont….. it kills her when she finds out things about me that I NEVER MENTIONED OR BRAGGED ABOUT… HAHAHAHA
She feels UPSTAGED
Being in her presence is so uncomfortable…. I respect her… but its something about me she can’t STAND
We had a big blow up last week, and I told her… LISTEN YOU OWN SEVERAL BUSINESS, AND YOU ALWAYS TALK ABOUT WHO YOU FIRED, WHAT YOU HAVE, WHAT YOU OWN.. I SAID BUT MEEEEEEEE. I DON’T WORK FOR YOU, I AM NOT ONE OF YOUR EMPLOYEES, AND YOU WILL NOT TALK TO ME ANY KIND OF WAY…… Oh I thought she was going to KILL me with the high pitch of her voice of RAGE.
She’s so JEALOUS of me…..while she’s BLESSED with MONEY and PROPERTY… I’m BLESSED WITH PERSONALITY, LOVE, PEACE, KINDNESS, EMPATHY, COMPASSION, LEADERSHIP SKILLS, and many more.
I didn’t sign up for ADULTS…. I signed up for the TEENS

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.
Be Blessed
