Friday Afternoon

Yesterday I was in Winchester in training. Normally, training is . . . not my favorite way to spend the day, but yesterday's was really good! I left the house at 6a, and got home at 8p. Yawn. I like my sleep! Luckily, I didn't have to be at work until 10, so that really helped. Adam is my new hero. He's letting me use his car until Annette and Dwayne can bring me their Blazer, which I'm going to buy from them. See? It all works out, eventually.
Today my pet peeve is two fold. The first being people who assume I'm not doing anything. My desk is actually out in the lobby. So many times I'm on the phone, or in the middle of research/whatever, and people just walk up and sit down. The worst is when I'm on the phone. I mean, what if I'm discussing something confidential? Just because I don't have an office, please don't assume I'm not doing anything!!! I've also had clients walk up and sit down when there is another client already with me! I kid you not. It's happened.
My other pet peeve is this. We keep candy for our clients. Tootsie Rolls and Starbursts are currently the offering. I can not STAND for people to sit there and chomp away, opened mouth, slurping away. Ugh. Gross. It's right up there with those dentures that don't sit right and people play with them. What about you? What sets you off? Don't even get me started on drivers that actually want to GO the speed limit!!! That's a topic for another day . . . .
