Ho Hum….

I’ve been meaning to write something for weeks here. All I’ve been doing is posting Mullet Monday’s and Hump Day Shenanigan’s. I’ve been working on a special project in hopes of being featured in a book. Let’s hope I make it, wish me luck? That’s where my priorities have been and work of course. But, this bitch is back loves 🙂

So, I think I blogged about having a new employee a few months back. He is truly incredible. I’m ecstatic that he’s there. I don’t even have to fix myself a cup of coffee anymore. He wants to do everything for me. Although he’s not my assistant it’s as if I have one. I’m getting so spoiled. Life is good now for me with being a manager. Honestly, I was somewhat insecure about the position. I doubted myself and if I could handle the responsibilities but I’ve proven myself wrong. I’ve got this. I’m doing fantastic at it, at least that’s what the owner tells me.

We’ve landed a large client. I get massive orders daily from this corporation. I’ve been requested to visit their facility by the plant manager.  It’s always lovely to be complimented by a major client and especially to the owner of your company. It helps for bonuses, raises, and promotions. This particular client is a female. I have enormous respect for her as she over sees it all. I can be so naive sometimes. I didn’t realize she was flirting with me until she stated in an e-mail “I bet you’re extremely beautiful Lennon. You’re voice is raspy and very sexy. I love your wittiness and you are exceptional at your job. We should meet halfway for dinner one evening. Let me take you out. Please tell me you’re single?” Sigh….I explained to her in the e-mail that I would love to meet her sometime to put the face with the e-mails and yes I am happily married. Well, that seemed to excite her even more. Go figure. As the owner says “Lennon, you need to take one for the team and accompany us on the next visit to the plant.” Sure thing, I’ll play along for the time being. Lennon doesn’t discriminate, she flirts with everyone anyways right? Ha. Not sure when we’ll visit the plant but I’ll keep all of you posted on that tidbit.

That’s about all that’s new with me. Sorry I’ve not written much lately but I’m planning on getting back into it again. Thank you all for always stopping by, reading and commenting.

XOXO

 

 

 

Finish Line

b1621f01a04a23ce8341473328227a0e

This one is hard to remember. I have goals…I’m a motivated person. I work extremely hard. For fuck’s sake I wear a head set to the bathroom at work so I’m working ALL the time. My work follows me home but I do get burned out sometimes. I hear the negative drama at work all around me. I don’t necessarily get involved with it but I hear it. I’m sure I’m known as the Snarky Bitch in the office but I’m there to do my job. So if I hear it I try to shut it down.

Currently one of our departments is slowly circling the drain. The technicians are moaning, complaining and moving slowly and they all actually just got a raise a few weeks ago. They’re treated like princess’ most of the time. If they do something wrong and get caught the management always says “It’s Ok, don’t worry about it.” They get away with a lot because they’re special….they have a talent in repairing things. These guys are hard to come by and difficult to find and keep happy. There are tons of competitors that want them.

But I swear they’re a pain in the ass and it’s almost as if they’re toddlers in a playpen and you’re having to change their diapers and powder their asses and give them a bottle every two hours. They want this and they want that and then when they talk it sounds like a newborn baby crying and I can’t really hear what they’re trying to tell me because I can’t stand their baby man voices.

Sorry, I got off on a rant and basically off the subject here about the baby men. Anyway, what my point is to this post is we can’t get caught up in that turmoil. We need to keep our eyes on that finish line to get shit done. I’m preaching to myself here more than all of you. Although the tech’s annoy me I can’t get intertwined in their temper tantrums. I need to just remind them of how good we do have it and how we’re fortunate to have jobs and tell them something positive to get them to move on from their whiny bitch melt downs.

So, mugs up and I’m going to wear my positive panties today and try very hard not to go off on anyone…… Wish me luck? Ha!

 

 

 

The Grenade

A few months ago I posted about a particular employee that I was not thrilled with. If you missed it you’ll want to read it first before continuing on….

https://fabulouswithglitches.wordpress.com/2016/02/21/thunder-inside/

Today was a great day for me….

This person has been “up front” with the promotion of “Marketing Coordinator” for three months now. I’d love to say they proved me wrong and have been doing amazing work in this new position….BUT that’s not the case here.

First Strike: Said person managed to post Pinterest quotes about Cake, Trump, Prince, and Religion on social media sites for our company. Did I mention I do not work for TMZ, E News, or any entertainment venues. The company I work for is an industrial equipment company. The type of quotes she’s posting has nothing to do with our product. Unacceptable.

Second Strike: Uploading photo’s of our competitors brands onto our social media sites advertising that’s our brand and to call us today for a free quote. Shaking my head…I know, what the fuck right?

Third Strike: Continuing to clock in and out while not even there are the office. Definition of that: Stealing….Thievery

Fourth Strike: Wearing clothing that is way too tight and a boob popping out by accident in front of a client. Yes! That REALLY happened. Might I add that this person is probably well over 300 lbs and has no business wearing tight clothing with very low cut tops. Don’t get me wrong, curvy plus size women are stunning. But, wear your clothing appropriately. Be professional for Christ Sake will ya?

I over heard the owner laughing about this person in his office today with my boss as I was walking by I couldn’t help but overhear the conversation of course…. (Sneaky Lennon listens in)

Owner: “I feel like I’ve been bamboozled by Lennon. It’s almost as if she opened the door to the front offices, pulled the pin on a grenade and rolled it in secretly and bolted back into her office. She dropped a bomb on me. ______ doesn’t listen to anything I tell her and she’s fucking up our social media.”

My Boss: “Yeah, Lennon knew exactly what she was doing when she told you about us needing a marketing coordinator. She wanted _____ out. She told you multiple times about how bad _____ was in her department but you ignored it. No offense but she got you. She sold you on the idea and told you how great ____ was because that’s what you always told Lennon. Give _____ a chance, she’s really smart and she’s ______ daughter. She gets everyone at some point and time. You just got served by Lennon. I still can’t believe you didn’t see it coming.”

Me: “Muahahaha” – Slinging my blonde hair back I strut back to my office and put more lipstick on.

As Charlie Sheen says: Winning!

 

What Do You Do?

Hey Loves,

It’s Sunday and I’m basically doing not much of anything. While I sit here preparing blogs for the week and getting my mindset for Monday I can’t help but wonder…what do all of you do for a living? How do you earn your paycheck? Maybe you’re a housewife – hardest job ever! Stay at home Dad? Possibly retired? If you’re retired what did you do? If you don’t work, what would you like to do for a living? If you’re on disability, what is your disability? School me on your lives will you?

What do I do? I sell industrial parts for forklifts, sweepers, utility carts, and scissor lifts. I purchase all of the parts for our company, keep the inventory discrepancies low, quote parts, invoice the clients for the parts. I also go out to call on customer’s from time to time or to “fix” their issues. I also help out the other departments with our software and training new people.

Tell me what fills your days?  🙂
