One of the things I have to do for the new job I now have is I get to sit in the big chair in the office and do the schedule, payroll, booking new jobs, and mapping destinations. I have often wondered why I have this propensity for leaning towards the management side of things. I have done it for quite some time now. In High School I was one of those people that desperately wanted to be in the lime light, but had to settle for being behind the scenes. It was there that I realized that the people behind the scenes are who really get things done. I learned later in college that bosses meant nothing if they weren't willing to get their hands dirty and work alongside the everyday people who actually got the job done.
People. That necessary element that makes the world go round. Without the little people, we wouldn't run quite as smoothly as a society. We need our trash collectors, dishwashers, and cleaning help, and thats where I find myself this morning. Sitting in the big chair, interviewing people for a position with this company. Well, I would be if the girl I made the appointment with had bothered to show up.
IN THIS ECONOMY IT BAFFLES ME THAT PEOPLE WOULDN'T SHOW UP!
I, who was without a home and income only 6 months before, get to sit in the big chair and pass judgement on others looking for a job. Some of these people are just as desperate as HHH & I were. That's why I get so damn pissed off when someone who isn't serious takes up my time when I could be talking to a better candidate. It's rude to me and the other people who are serious about this.
So here I sit. In the big chair.
