Originally, I wrote about how these two temps I have running one of my stores are walking all over me. One, a stoner retard, no showed this weekend, making this day number 8 I've worked straight. (I'm on call every weekend, but this weekend I actually had to run a store too). The other is an apathetic retard.
Then I realized all of the problems I've had with them point back to me being a crappy manager. I've overlooked things I shouldn't. I've laughed at their stupidity instead of just firing them. Bad stuff.
I don't feel like having a pity party. So instead I'll give myself some real goals and give tomorrow a whole new slant.
Goal number one, I will wake up and shower BEFORE my morning conference call, not after. Every day, not just when the boss is in town.
Goal number two, I will divide up that paper work in my office by stores/locations that created it.
Goal number three, I will take a stack and bring it to that store. I need more face time with these guys anyway. This will allow me to research things on site with the folks who probably caused the work anyway. I will work my way through those stacks by month's end.
Goal number four, I will hold people accountable like I'm held accountable. If this means write ups, so be it. If this means confronting some of my long standing problems/nemesis even better.
I will not be a door mat any more. Things will change or I'll find someone who will do it my/our way!
I will do this before "pushed to my limit" becomes "pushed out the door!"
