I now know what puts me in a bad mood, what rubs me the wrong way, and what I hope I never do to people, but I know I do sometimes.
You know what it is?
It’s when I get to work and the first thing someone asks or tells me is “I have this problem”, “Can you help me”, “Quick, blah blah blah’s computer isn’t working and he/she needs it NOW!!!!”…. AHHH people, calm down. When this happens to me first thing in the morning, I get really defensive, and it puts me in a bad mood, I give quick snappy answers, and don’t make eye contact with the person… Grr I hate it, I hate it, I hate it.
No “Good morning Travis, how are you?”… That’s all I want… just some polite greeting, a smile, not a frantic angry person who has no idea what to do but complain.
I wish that this didn?t affect me and that I could just turn the other cheek? I only remember one time where I was like? ?And how is your day?? with a smile. But that was a special day, not sure why I was just happy. I don?t always get angry or annoyed, but I always notice it, and it usually makes me a little less happy to be at work.
So, anyways, this is one of my biggest pet-peeves, just say HI people? Start a small conversation; don?t complain to me right away! I?ll be more than happy to actually help if you don?t attack me right away!
