A Time To Vent

Hi Ya'll!  No, I haven't faded away into the woodwork.  I have emerged myself into the working folk and am trying to make this transaction as seamless as possible.
My new job requires me to be both on the computer and on the telephone ALL DAY LONG!  Did I mention that I really do not like to talk on the telephone?  Yah, right.
If I have learned anything, it is I now totally understand that the person on the other end of the phone is a human being deserving of my patience, understanding and compassion.  However, people, pay your damn bills!  I am the first to acknowledge that we all have financial difficulties from time to time but please, do not blame me for doing my job.  I am not the one who failed to pay your bill on time.  Yelling at me does not change the situation.
OK, that is out of my system.  I am now prepared to enjoy my weekend, sleep in, and be lazy if I want to be.
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and I'll be back as soon as I can face this computer again!

deep breath...refresh! I remember how difficult it can be to work with those kind of people. it's tough to be patient, for me, but you can't let it eat you up. Take care Deb.

Here's some advice I once got and took .. you can take it or not .. get a small mirror and put it beside the phone so you can see yourself while you are on the phone .. looking at yourself will make you smile and more pleasant and make it easier to deal with the irritating voices on the other end

I still think it's exciting and thrilling and wonderful. And I hope to be in the same boat before too long!
