I tried to re-watch the video tour of my condo a few times, and it was painfully boring. I plan to continue making videos under my other diary name to remedy this.
All of our patio furniture has already arrived! Which surprised me to no end. According to my Amazon account, two of the three items are still on track to be delivered in a few weeks. This is quite unusual. My account usually reflects the reality much more closely than it does with these items. BUT I’m not complaining. I got the stuff and that’s all that matters. My husband is planning to assemble it all today while I’m working. I hope it goes well!!
What else? I am starting to see some qualities about my boss that I don’t love. Up until this point I’ve been a huge admirer of her. This isn’t to say that I don’t still admire her, but the level of admiration has definitely decreased. She is very secretive, and it’s quite unsettling. For months there have been things that linger in a room full of people, things we can all feel that are left unsaid. If we ask her direct questions, she will respond with a friendly smile and lots of words without answering the question at all. It puts a distinct barrier between us all.
She also tells white lies and encourages us to tell white lies to our clients. An example of this would be that a client experiences the loss of a pet. She says, “I will say that I once lost a pet, too,” and go on to give us an example of how she might relate to the client. Then, she will laugh and say, “whether or not I’ve actually lost a pet isn’t really important.” I’m like, whoa. That baffles me. I find it extremely off-putting and now I question whether or not she is being honest with me all the time.
Perhaps these are traits of successful business people? I wouldn’t be surprised. This just reiterates what I’ve believed for most of my life: being a “successful business person” does not appeal to me at all.
To be fair, even with the lies and secrets, I haven’t caught her doing anything malicious and I still feel secure at my job. So there’s that.
Ugh. I wish I had more time to write. Sadly, I do not.
Until next time <3
