Misanthrope and other tales

I’m starting to feel burned out at work. It must be something in the air or water or season, because our clients are starting to really work my nerves. They’re demanding, they’re rude, they’re impatient. I’m hoping as summer rolls around they’ll chill out so I can chill out.

I’ve started doing what we call DICing – Director In Charge, which means acting as the floor manager for an hour (or more). The DIC holds the clipboard with the daily schedule on it, and sends people on breaks and lunches, and makes sure the store zones (areas) are being covered. The DIC is also the problem solver, on-the-spot coach, cheerleader, and keeps the cast (staff) updated as to how our daily sales goal is coming along. It’s stressful on busy days and fun on less-busy days. I thought I was going to die on Saturday and Monday (the holiday) when I DICed. Dear God, save me from my clients.

On the plus side, I got a lot of stuff done today. The car was taken to the DEQ and had its registration renewed, a cable modem was returned… some perfume was purchased (Flowerbomb… although if DH doesn’t like it, back it goes). Some dinner was made. A long phone conversation with a friend was had… so, it’s not all bad.
