Hello. It’s Belinda.
Well there was some drama this week.
Last Sunday I mentioned that the Top 10 Cuties email is nothing but Lionheads.
It was brought to my attention—by my roommate of all people—that I shouldn’t say things like that. Because Jessica includes Rexes and Dutches and Harlequins and you name it in those emails.
She said I needed to be careful or I would get caught up in “office politics.”
“Besides, do these look like Lionheads?”
I had to admit that Lizzie, Max and Zane, Barbarella Queen of the Galaxy and Bernie not only made it into the Top 10 Cuties—they deserved it.
And if I have to free climb my roommate’s shoulder or learn to balance pinecones to make the cut, then I will do it.
To me it was settled and I was ready to move on. But my roommate kept bringing it up.
“You have to be a team player now,” she said. “If you’re upset about something at work, you can’t just thump until I wake up and turn all the lights on. You have to schedule a meeting.”
I don’t want to be rude, but I need to point something out: My roommate doesn’t seem to have a job.
She spends all day doing something on the computer and there’s nothing wrong with that. But I’m the one with deadlines and all these new rules to learn.
So how could she know about coworkers and good communication at the office?
“Just remember, Belinda,” she added. “There is no ‘B’ in team.”
Now that made no sense to me but I assume it’s another one of those “job truths” she heard somewhere. It may be a secret acronym.
For now, I am going to lay low until this thing blows over.
If there is one thing I know how to do, it’s lay low.
