Today was such a good day! I enjoyed myself thoroughly at work first thing this morning.
It's petty and small of me, but I can't help myself: the hateful, gossipy, backstabbing coworkers at my job (along with a couple of other people who've been nice to me personally, but who are lazy and forever slacking on their duties) got busted by the district superintendent this morning, goofing off and not attending to their jobs. The principal was away on business and the superintendent "popped in" to see what was going on in our school while our boss was away. I was at my desk, cheerful and working, so it didn't bother me a bit when he walked in the front door. The other office people are a different story, though! They were
nowhere to be found hanging out in each other's offices and gossiping (like they do all day every day) and no one besides me was answering phones, greeting visitors, attending to parents, etc etc etc. It was obvious that the superintendent was PISSED OFF. I'm certain those two women along with a couple of others will have to answer for their behavior...finally. Karma's biting them in the ass and I love it! And for once, being responsible and always trying hard to do a good job (even when my boss isn't around to see it) has paid off a little. I was the only staff member that Dr. O'Malley spoke pleasantly to this morning. The rest got a tongue lashing and taken down a notch. Not to mention a black mark in Dr. O's estimation.
What a sweet way to start my day!
