Washing doctors’ (coffee cup, water glass, forks, knives, yup glorified maids we are)
(You are not responsible for washing other people’s dishes but guess what winds up happening? All the mother effin bats leave their mugs and other dishes for each other and me to do. When I first started it was made very clear to me that we were to wash our own dishes. I understood so I keep my cup at my desk at all times and wash it myself.)
Clean the tables, counter, microwave, stock paper towels, make coffee.
and of course bring treats…
Well I was “reprimanded” my last time as KM because I had never taken the dish towel home to wash, I was not even aware we had to...
I took the flippin dish towel home and used it to dust my china cabinet, my blinds, my dressers I twirled it to make it tight and snap Tazz (did not hit him just did the air above him). After all that, I forgot to put it in with the laundry and it’s sitting in my back porch.
Flash forward to today’s meeting…
Toto: (other nurse who I never really talk about because she hardly ever bothers me and is a people pleaser but on this occasion she did bother me and displeased me)
‘I couldn’t help but notice that the blue dish towel was last seen on the week you were KM, now it’s gone…?’ (last seen, as if it were on the run… with my shoe?)
Cooler than Ice Cubes Bee: ‘Blue dish towel, what blue dish towel?’
Toto: ‘The one with little roses on it…?’
In the meantime everybody is looking at me so I decide to come clean… I mean what can they do right?
Cooler than Ice Cubes Bee: ‘Oh yeah, you know what I guess I forgot to bring it back. Oops, sorry!’
Lord have mercy on my soul for when I finally drop dead from “office political exhaustion” (very rare disease, not surprised you haven’t heard about it.)
Toto, Scarecrow, PD: ‘garble garble brugga brugga garble rabble’
Cooler than Ice Cubes Bee: ‘I didn’t understand what you guys said, can you attack me one at a time please?’
Scarecrow: ‘Do you think you can write yourself a note for tomorrow?’
Cooler than Ice Cubes Bee: ‘Sure, what do you want the note to say?’ [big smile]
Scarecrow: ‘Well… to bring the towel back.’
Cooler than Ice Cubes Bee: ‘So you want the note to say “to bring the towel back”?’ [Pretend writing it down on my hand, I say pretend because I had no writing utensils]
Toto: ‘It can say whatever will remind you to bring it back.’
Cooler than Ice Cubes Bee: ‘Right, but I need you guys to direct me… I’m not sure I can get thru this on my own…’ [angelic look]
[In the background you hear Glynda snickering]
Toto: ‘Are you just toying with us?’
Cooler than Ice Cubes Bee: ‘No, if this is important enough to bring up during a business meeting then I really want to work at never ever upsetting you guys, cross my heart!’
Glynda: ‘Okay, let’s move on. She’ll bring it back eventually. If she forgets then I’m sure she’s not going to use it as a dust rag.’
The meeting concluded with them devouring delicious snackies, Taco Dip (with tortilla chips not butter-freekin-crackers) and a nice Cinnamon Crumble cake made by my own little… supermarket! :op
Not that you’ll be upset but, no posting will be made tomorrow (no Nancy, do not even try the guilt) since I’ve looked at my agenda and will actually have to get some work done before I meet with OZ.
Have a great weekend everyone!
