They Are Getting Pushy

The rumor mill has it that they sent out letters for Sergeants interviews today.

Don't know if it's true. And if it is, I don't know I'll get one. Just wait and see, I guess.

The Lt on the books is getting kind of pushy about me studying up for the interview. I looked at the chrono for next week and all of my utility days are front desk, mail run, etc. All places that leave me with time on my hands. So why not study up a little? Yeah.

I'm tired of this stuff already. Just want to get it over with so I can go back to being me again.

And to top it off I had a crummy day. Kept dropping things in the comm room and almost everybody that came to the window had a bad attitude. Brother D kept me from snapping on a few of them. He always has a calming effect on me up there.

So I think I'll just do the weekend calendar and try to sleep this day off. Except for a couple of bright spots, this one wasn't worth keeping.

Saturday: Gunpowder Day (make things go boom!) and Sadie Hawkins Day.

Sunday: Saxophone Day and Marooned Without A Compass Day (I'd rather be marooned without a saxophone), Daylight Savings Time Ends Day and Zero Tasking Day.

Monday: National Bittersweet Chocolate With Almonds Day (At least it's not coconut) and Job Action Day.

And if you can explain that you are officially much smarter than me.


  1. Job Action Day is a day of empowerment for workers and job-seekers -- to put your career and job in the forefront, making plans, taking action steps.

    For people currently working, Job Action Day is an opportunity to not only examine your current job and employer, but also evaluate both the stability of that job and employer as well as your personal fulfillment with your job. It's a day to take stock of your career and develop a plan for their next career steps.

    For job-seekers, Job Action Day is a chance to take a break from the daily grind of job-hunting to take a look at the bigger picture of your career and job-search strategies. It's a day to develop plans for developing new job and career options and devising new and better ways to track down job leads and position yourself for employment opportunities.


  2. "Job Action Day!" sounds like something they'd yell in one of those anime cartoons. There'd be a split screen shot with their fists in the airs, and then they'd form a huge mecha-robot and stop the flying dragon from destroying the city.

  3. Any chance of sending Brother D my way.

    Good luck with the studying - I'm sure you will be getting "the letter" any day now telling you you're up for an interview.

    You'll ace it - now worries...have some chocolate (read that as Bombay + 3 olives in my world lately) and you'll do just fine!

    Cheers, Jenny


    PS - thanks for the suggestion re "the snack" for solving my "lion" problem! (I'm laughing at your sense of humour - made my day - thanks)

  4. Ghost- Okay. You are officially much smarter than me. I admit it.

    Bryan- Hee hee hee! I can see that happening! Job Action day! Ka-chow!

    Jenny- If he wasn't already attached and if I didn't need him around so much myself, I'd box him up and send him to you express mail.

    And I'm a fretter. I just can't help it sometimes.
