What tires you out? Work? Kids? Bores? What?--Al

-- Al Schroeder (al.schroeder@nashville.com), September 23, 2000


Something I have been free of for ten years plus. Meetings - meetings - meetings. Those required, boring, repetitive meetings, where they told us what we already knew and how to correct certain things -- that we already knew wouldn't work -- and again told us that we were team members and one of the family. We remained one of the family until the time we became scum at contract negotiation time. We had been through that a boring, fatiguing number of times also.

When things aren't explained clearly. When you're on a job and the organization falls apart. When your boss can't even keep your stupid work schedule straight. (Do I sound angry here?) I AM angry, redfaced at showing up 7pm when I was supposed to be there 7am. Do they make it clear? NO!!! I HATE stupidity like this. So THIS is what tires me out GOOD. Argghhhh!

Thanks for listening to me vent. P.S. The link to the questions from the journal page needs fixed. It brings up the 'sorry, no such page' thing.

And now I will go out on the porch and complain some more to Laura and whoever wants to hear. (Neighbors, even? I'll try to keep the volume down. A Little anyway)...

The two guys I transcribe for bore me to tears. One because he drones on and on and on and on and on and I've done his work for more than 20 years so nothing is new, and the other for dictating stuff like: "He demonstrated some variability but generally strength in his nonverbal reasoning with a perceptual organization index of 121, equivalent to the 92nd percentile. On the timed visuospatial test of Block Design, his score is equivalent to the 95th percentile showing effective nonverbal problem solving, reasoning and strategies. He performed the Matrix Reasoning test, which is untimed but more complex and less structured at the 75th percentile. His need for more concrete structure and clear expectations was seen in the picture arrangement test, which he completed at the 50th percentile with several incorrect sequences which appear to relate to misdirected focus on details." for five pages a report.
