School shirt

School shirt

I know I've been terrible at posting but it has been crazy busy here with the puppy. I feel like I've said that before, I think I have. Anyways. My oldest is back at school and juggling the puppy needs and my youngest needs leaves me no time to craft. If my husband is reading this and I know he is... just look at what I sacrifice for you to have a dog!
I finished this shirt before school started. I've just been slow getting to the computer. Sometimes I wish they had a program that would automatically put pictures you took on your camera and up load it into a folder on your computer! That would save me so much time! Since the camera doesn't always make it to vicinity of the computer when I'm done taking pictures.
There have been crazy changes going on at work and I don't know if I can even write about them so it makes sense. My boss from my first department got a job at corporate. She will be leaving soon, which is good because our department is looking like crap. Well the whole store looks like we don't care if the customers know how much they are paying for stuff. There is a replacement but they are being all secretive. Her assistant is supposed be transferring out of our department too. Which I will be VERY happy about because she is seriously a negative Nancy. We all have bad days but hers are never ending and then she takes it out on us. One of the new guys was telling me how he just doesn't understand her. One minute she's super mad at me then next minute she's all smiling. I told him that's how some women are, you get used to it. The negative Nancy has been following me around the store making sure I don't talk to people and correcting my work. Which is fine but I wish she would have corrected my work in the 1st month when I couldn't remember what I was supposed to order. Now it's been 5 months, kind of late to undo all that I thought was right. Eh?
My good friend is transferring to the cheese department where she will be meeting her own kind of controlling insanity. Seriously, why do people insist on doing things the hard way, when it could be done the easy way? It just makes me kind of sad because working in a big store, I feel we should all have the same goal but it seems more like it's an us verses them mentality. I'm just there to do my job and do it to the best of my ability but when the full timer's don't do it when I'm not there, who makes up for it? It's seriously bad too. There are no sale signs in produce and tags are wrong left and right but I'm only one woman. One woman who works with a bunch of happy morons. Seriously I work with the nicest college and high school students now. We have a great time working but they haven't been trained properly and have no clue what they are doing! You can't really get mad at them because they are only trying to do what they think is correct!

Yay for new puppies and going back to school! I hope you enjoy your sweet little pup! I remember when my dog was a little one! :)

I know what you mean about work. It always seemed to me that top-down management meant that a bad boss ruined every aspect of the company. You can always tell the stores with a good boss from the ones with a bad boss by the employee's attitudes. So sorry you have the latter and not the former!
