Good afternoon everyone!! Let me set the scene for you. I have this nice job. I am not required to do any heavy work, just sit at a computer answer the phone, make calls to check on clients, package up stuff when needed and resupply the shelves when they get bare. It can be mentally exhausting, because if anyone knows the customer service industry; it isn't pretty. Also we have tons of clients in the New York and New Jersey area, so I pretty much get attitude all day long. There are only four of us that work in our office. Jeffery our COO, Ivory our service Tech and customer support person, Me sales associate, and Derry (female) our accountant. Some of you may have heard me talk about my co worker. I know I have mentioned her in previous posts, but in this one I am going to get detailed. For starters I don't ride with her ANYWHERE. She has almost killed me three times. Once we went over the median on a bridge, trying to turn at a green light, she was turning left and she was looking right. The second and third times just happen to be the same scenario, she was looking at the plants and the Canadian geese and she wasn't paying attention and almost put us in the lake that is at our complex. I was also tired of her taking the back way to different restaurants just so she could fine a hooker and point out her "horrible" outfit. She makes off the wall comments and will interrupt your conversation for some of her psycho-babble. All of us in the office kinda feel sorry for her sometimes, but most of it she brings on herself. Well lets take yesterday afternoon for example. She had gone on the lunch run because Ivory is on vacation this week. So we; Jeffery, Derry, and I; are all sitting in the lunch room talking about the whole pirate situation that happened. Well then we got started on the Navy, because Jeffery was in the navy for awhile he was enlightening us on stuff that goes on. Well as Jeffery and I were talking, Derry interrupted us, as usual and asked this question:
"Does the navy go overseas?" as in does the navy have oversea deployments.
My boss and I just looked at each other in shock. We couldn't believe what had just been said. Needless to say we asked her "are you serious?" and of course she was. We explained to her that Navy bases are all located along the coast line, so they can be near a body of water, for the boats. I felt like I was explaining this to my (almost) 6 year old daughter. CRAZY!!! OH and I have to let you know since most of you are Army wives. Last summer we were talking about life on post and people in the military, she asked if we knew who the Gay and Lesbian people were. "Like how do you know, do they have to say something? Are they treated different? Do you separate them from everybody else?" Yes we put them all in Kansas and have the Navy boats bring them food and water!!!!!!!!
