Bite thy Tongue.. Feisty Admin!

Well, it’s late at night. A long two days of work after the bosses return from two weeks out of office. More staffing changes and I must be on guard.

There is a saying.. stay close to the Devil you know. Well, crap. I don’t know any of these people I’m working with…. and pretty much certain that they don’t give a rat’s ass about me and my work…. Which is why I pulled my personal commentary separate from my Chapter’s stuff.

Here’s the scenario… working with a new supervisor, don’t really know their peeves, not really sure of best methods to communicate.. and NO direction or parameters. So this is what prompts the Bite Thy Tongue rant. .. [Though, come to think of it.. this blog may in fact, be just be defeating that intent!]

Somedays I feel too damn old to be teaching other dogs new tricks… and I know you feel me on this one.. Alas, I contemplated all day quietly- the advantage of us seasoned veterans of the admin universe.

I, in fact, withhold info about personal trials, tribulations and body functions while in the office.. How do I encourage others to follow suit in this scenario…when so very few boundaries are acknowledged, much less respected…..Ah,this is the best I can do today.. and these next 10 days as I count down to VACATION!…

I say to myself, “Self, Bite Thy Tongue- Feisty Admin!” It is the finest way to remain respectable.(and, probably–employed!)
