Communication is key

Yeah, we all know this. It's one of those buzz phrases. What you say, how you say it and to whom.
Apparently it hasn't filtered down to those lower on the totem pole of life yet. (and that's not exactly what I wanted to say)

Like Miss Attitude. She hasn't figured it out yet.

A week ago the phone rang at the desk and since I thought she was at the desk I didn't pick up. Until the fourth ring. Apparently she had better things to do than man the desk. But she doesn't bother to warn anyone that they are on their own. This was the last straw.

The best illustration of this annoying little habit happened a few weeks ago. I had just gotten a chance to finally take a coffee break. So I told her that's what I was doing. I actually used her name and said the following words. "I'm going on my break, I'll be back," and then she wanders away from the desk before the echo faded.

We are headed for a showdown. And the attitude will not be on her side.

More Miss Attitude

Now I now all of you have been wondering if there have been more Velmaesqe (Velma-ish?) traits sighted recently.
Two have surfaced.
Miss Attitude like to show off her musical talent. She does this by telling everyone how good she is at playing her horn.(Ironic isn't it?) She has been using this as an excuse lately to miss shifts.
Also she gets all fired up about stupid news items. She spent nearly 10 minutes arguing about some experiment conducted in a subway recently. And how that proves that our culture is doomed, because people during rush hour won't stop to participate.
I thought it was funny actually. Well, more ironic than funny. She was horrified.
Neither she nor Velma could see the humor in things like these.

Swear. To.... Joel.

If one more person emails me that cartoon with the chocolate bunnies my head will explode! Its the equivalent of getting those weekly sale flyers in the mail.
