December 30

Wednesday, December 30 — In at 8:30. Another nutty night. Had only enough time to post yesterday’s blog and then left for employer. The day was a mixed bag. Cold in the showroom, cold with the customers outside, and some challenging moments with the customers. Apparently my hearing shortcoming also impedes my ability to be understood when I talk to some customers. NOT a big deal, this was the last of three days in a row I was needed there, or so I thought. Two minutes before I turned off the lights and locked up, owner called me and asked me to work tomorrow too. As Rogers and Hammerstein might have written in their fabulous musical Oklahoma, “I’m just a loser who can’t say ‘no’ when an employer changes his mind and asks me to give up the day I had planned for elsewhere so I could return and be his dancing monkey on a rope.” Actually the character’s song began “I’m just a girl who can’t say ‘no,'” but I’m sure you understand my point. So I made it back to the AKM office by 5:20, and got ready for the model club meeting tonight. It was well attended and a good time was had by all. But CHEESES, I need some POSITIVE ACTION IN MY LIFE. Departed for home at 9:25. Day rating: D+
