The LIfe & Times of a Registration Clerk

There is a sign that says: Please Take a Number and Have a Seat.

Also there is a sign stating what documentation we need from you.

Do not stare me down and burn holes through me. If you see me on the computer and taking care of papers and answering phones and being the jack of all trades then "NO, I AM NOT READY FOR YOU"

Just because someone walks out of my office, does not mean you can walk right on in uninvited. There is a number system people. I will call your number!!!!

DO NOT stand right at my window waiting for me when I am so obviously busy taking care of someone else.

Privacy is desperately needed. Stand the hell back!!!!

Do not expect me to read your mind. There is more than one reason why you could be standing there waiting for me.

If you don't know what you want then how the hell do I know.

There will be 10,000 interruptions and when that happens obviously things will take a lot longer than usual .

NO I don't have time to sweet talk you and smile and joke with you. I am here to register you and get you the hell out of my office so the next person can come in.

I have plenty of other things that are just as important and all should have been done yesterday, last year, last minute. You are not the only one in this world who has a problem that I need to fix.

If you see only 1 person in my office, things will take longer.

If you see people coming at me in all 3 directions and people calling me on all 3 phones at the same time, then obviously I will be getting a little testy. So shut the hell up and wait for your number to be called.

If I have to call out a number more loudly then you think I should, go suck an egg!!

If you are going to be late for your test, you should have come earlier.

I do have to take a drink, have a snack, pee, clear my mind, and vent some. I am a person. Not a machine. I can take only so much.

If you don't have what I need to do what I need to do and can't find the paperwork you think should be waiting for me. THINGS will be going ever so slowly. I don't have time to track down the whole entire facility and make 100 calls. Do it yourself. Here's an idea: Call the facility ahead of time to make sure your papers are there waiting on you.

Please know what the hell provider you went to because obviously I can't read a scribble and decipher a goddamn name from it. I have to get on the Internet and Google the facility and hope they have a website. Then load the site on my ever so slow computer and hope and pray I find the right provider. If I can't find the right one, I AM NOT REGISTERING YOU. I CAN'T PULL A NAME OUT OF MY ASS, PEOPLE!!!


However, if you are patient with me, I will be patient with you and be pleasant even though I am seething inside because of other people and employees, and different matters.

I need a drink........

Face Wash

Why have I not ever heard of this before? I have acne prone skin. Had it every since I was 9. I've tried every freaking acne face wash there is and nothing has ever worked. So, here I am in my 40s and finally my skin looks good. For three weeks now. I love it! No acne. No dryness. Smooth and healthy complexion. I really do look younger. So what is this? I don't know if I dare say. I mean why would I want others to look good too. lol. Oh, it is:

castor oil and olive oil
What!! Why would you put more oil on your face to help with oily skin, you say. I thought it was gross too. But since I have tried everything anyway, I gave it a shot. And I was sold on the first "washing".

I found this on a blog that I follow: Simple Organized Living. I think I found the blog on Pinterest. You find so many neat things on that site that you might otherwise never have found. On Simple Organized Living, the oil cleansing method was linked and referenced too.

Thank You, Hubby!

As I was reading my posts in FB this morning, I ran across a link about dads and I was thankful that I have the husband that I have. The link was to a blog post, titled, Calling all Dads, from the blog, Dad Revolution. The post was about how the government census classifies dads and how society still thinks of dads as babysitters.

I am thankful that my husband has changed plenty of diapers for all four of our kids. He has made bottles, gave them baths, walked the floors with them. He cooks, does dishes, and picks the house up. He will do laundry also. He does have many faults, but, all in all, I choose to put up with them in order to experience all the goodness that I do get. Also, now that the kids are adults, they have a great relationship with their dad still.

Now we have 6 grandchildren and they all love him dearly. He gives them plenty of attention, kisses and hugs, and shares his coffee with them. Also, when I watch the kids for my daughters, I can count on him to help me take c…

Anger Management

I must confess that I have a problem in becoming angry and belligerent to people. Innocent people that have nothing to do with why I am angry. And there never is just one reason for the anger. It's an accumulation of irritations and obligations, etc. I have behaved badly at stores in front of customers and especially to the cashiers. I have yelled, cursed, and threatened many customer service reps on the phone whether it be the phone company, the electric company, for myself or for my mother. I take things out on anyone near me. Last Friday, I had a problem with my virus protection program on my computer through my cable service provider and did the chat thing with a customer service rep. Yes, I typed plenty of inappropriate things to let him know the depth of my annoyance.

Don't worry, karma did bite me in the ass today at work. A patient treated me in the same exact way that I treat other people when I'm pissed. No, it did not feel good and I did get angry at them. So, …
