Just when I think I've got my ducks in a row, it turns out they're actually Ritalin snorting ferrets in duck suits and are on their way to a rave.

Picture it: Sicily, 19.....wait.

Let's try this again.

Picture it, Happy Acres, 4:25 this afternoon.  I am about ready to spit nails because the three o'clock person quit yesterday and my relief isn't showing up until five and they just now saw fit to tell me.

Supervisor passes me in the hall and said "Oh, I've been wanting to talk to you."

I take a deep breath, get ready to start a monolgue that begins "Yeah, I've been wanting to talk to you, too..." and escalates rapidly from there.

"Would you consider starting the training to become a med tech?"


Cue the voice in the back of my head:  "Why are you nodding?  WHAT ARE YOU DOING< WOMAN!?!?!?
  You have one foot out that door!  And what the hell do you know about meds, anyway?"

And then I realize my mouth is having a very knowledgable discussion with the supe about Coumadin, its side effects, the foods you can't eat while on it, etc etc etc.  Oh.  Oh, yeah.  I managed both my grandparents' and ex inlaws' meds.  I MIGHT know a thing or two about this stuff.

More stuff to think about.

Well.... congrats, I guess *I guess the hard work pays off eventually.*

Something to think about. Would the staff be more reliable?

Happy thinking! I wish such discussions would go on where I'm working.

Whatever you decide to do, I hope it turns out to be the right thing for you.

Getting trained on something more is always good - never wasted knowledge - even if you don't stay at Happy Acres long term!

Competence is a hard habit to break.

Kent calls it "the curse of competence." Apparently, I have it.
