I re-read the book "Get anyone to do anything and never feel powerless again" today. It’s better then the title sounds.
I re-read it because everyone at work is so stressed out they have, almost to a man, taken up new passions and taken them to a fault. I can’t put my finger on why everyone is so stressed out, and it took me a long time to figure out what was going on.
Yesterday was one of those days. I got to work and found I had forgotten my door badge in my money clip I left on my desk at home. Then I found it was birthday lunch day so everyone was going out for lunch together. :-( I went. I had just been there the night before. The waitress looks at me and says… "Didn’t I wait on you list night?". "Yup" i reply. And the table snickers. Lunch was ok, Talk was ok, then the bill came. No money so I opened my wallet. No C Card?! I’m checking my pockets looking in the corners of my wallet. And then the waitress says. "Oh… I think you left your credit card here last night." I left her a big tip.
