I was sitting on the front porch enjoying the nice weather with DH and our cat, Bella, was chasing a squirrel partway up the tree. The squirrel sat on the power line screaming at the cat and then the cat saw a tomcat coming her way and ran a beeline to the porch under our seat. Just sitting there enjoying the activity made me smile

My new boss thanked me profusely for the work I have gotten us caught up on in the last week. He heard from "someone" that I was difficult to work with and very set in my ways. He says it's not true and I have been very helpful and willing to try new ways to help us keep the papers rolling.

Geez PF, why would someone say you're difficult to work with? Seriously, though, that is a very nice compliment. Now if he'd only follow it up with a bonus...

****

Although baseball is my favorite sport, I do enjoy when any Cleveland team can pull out a win. Cleveland's basketball team, the Cavaliers, won their sixth game in a row tonight. Nice! I'd still like to see one of the teams win a championship before I die though!

I only get unruly when something is stupid, inefficient or stupid (redundant). I'm not afraid to say something is ridiculous and don't like giving up things that work fine. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I also have my own way to organize my brain and being left handed, doing things your way may not work for me.

Other than all that I am a delight!!!

And I like the room to be cool...keeps me awake.

Wow. It is nice when your boss recognizes your skills and willingness to be helpful.

Sometimes people who don't think find competent people to be difficult and set in their ways.

E.g., I worked in a convalescent home. The head nurse wanted me to wash my hands in hot water. I refused. I also refused to follow her example and re-contaminate my hands by touching the taps with my clean hands when I was done washing them. I used a paper towel to turn the handles. If she had given me reasons, I would have listened and considered. I was "difficult and set in my ways".

I have been branded "Non-Compliant." I guess that is another word for "difficult".

I'm glad your boss is able to recognize your value and even more glad he let you know he recognizes your value. Always a good feeling when that happens.

Last week he was my new supervisor, this week he is "Boss" I think I'll keep him.
