today was pretty nice. busy at work, but got my memorial letters out, timecard stuff fixed and most of my claims prepped. woot! there were a couple irritations, one involving the potential outsourcing of part of my work. i hate outsourcing. i don't care if it's to a company in america or not (altho being in america does make it better. sorry, but i don't believe in sending jobs overseas when we have PLENTY of available & willing work force m moren our own country. will you have to pay them more? YES YOU WILL because gas prices keep going up & ppl couldn't live on what you could pay someone overseas. but you will be creating/maintaining jobs IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY!!! sorry, stepping down from that soap box to step up to another...)! and it's not that i don't want to "share" my work - i'm all for having help & finding efficiencies. but i believe we should keep our work in-house, because when customer x calls, they want to know they're going to be able to talk w/ someone who actually works for the company they're calling. at least, i would, if i were customer x!!
anyway, i had a phone call about one of those things & it made me feel defensive & on the spot, and i hate feeling like that. i felt blindsided. i felt talked down to. i don't think that was the caller's intent (i hope not, anyway) but that doesn't really help w/ how it made me FEEL. :p and then i went to give my boss a head's up about the call/info, and she made me feel a bit talked down to, as well. again, i hope she didn't mean to - she was in btwn appointments & didn't really have time to think about what i was saying, so we'll see how things go down when we discuss it again.
so! at 2 i was MORE THAN ready to leave for the day! *laugh*
stacy picked me up & we headed to georgette's. last time, it took us like 5 hours to get there because the GPS kept sending us all over creation! this time, it took us about an hour & a half. PTL!! : ) we have so much fun on our trips, stacy & i. we chat the whole way there, then w/ gette for a few hours of hanging out & dinner, then the whole way back. is awesome. i love my friends!!! : ) thank the Lord!!
gette made fried chicken & a spinach veggie casserole - delicious!! i had a cinnamon roll for dessert, warmed up in the microwave. mmmm! and the three of us sat around in the living room just talking about this, that & the other. good times! don't we look happy?? : )
got back to my car around 10:30 (we had some fun GPS issues on the way back! LOL good thing stacy & i both have pretty good senses of direction!! i headed to the gas station & hit it right before closing time. thankfully they hadn't taken out the diet pepsi from the soda machine yet! heh. they were just closing, too - i was the last customer. and i forgot something, so i had to stop at another gas station on the way home, as well!! LOL
now i'm reading some FB & will read a bit of my book & then hit the hay. hanging out w/ mom & leyton tomorrow - don't know what we're doing, but it'll be fun! : )
ttfn! hope your friday was fun!
