Attitude Adjustment

While at work yesterday, I had a situation come up where I was not proud of myself.

My school district was hosting a few training sessions for this new online fundraising company that we have contracted with. Each school was able to send a few people to receive this training.

Totally up my alley because:

-One of my main jobs in my office is fundraising {schools are poor, so you need to know how to pimp yourself out JUST right to get money for anything}
-Using social media is soooooo my thing!

Yet, I was not picked to go.  I found this out awhile back, stated my case to a few people, still was not told to go, so I went on my merry way.

After the morning session, I was called up by my office manager.  I guess the group that went thought {SHOCKER} I really should have been there, so our boss would like to know if I wanted to go to the last training of the day.  Of course I said No....wait....I said NO?!?!  Yes, dummy, you said no.

You may be wondering why.  Well.....

{in my BEST inner 16 year old attitude}

Wasn't I th.....


{add an eye roll for good measure}

Wasn't I the one who originally suggested I be included?!?!  Don't they think I know my job well enough to decide what will help our school?!?!  So I will show them by NOT going.

As soon as I hung up, I aged back to 31 and realized what an immature brat I was being.

Now you need to understand that I am normally {say 98%} of the time very reasonable at feeling is that if something is going to benefit the school and our students, I will do whatever I need to. So if you've reached this far with only thinking I am a crazy biatch once, I thank you!

Needless to say, my boss did "encourage" me to go.  This time, I was my 31 year old self, so there were no problems.

I went to the training, got a million and one ideas and came to work today with suggestions as to how this will benefit my school.

Why am I sharing this so publicly?  Because I know I'm not the only one out there who has days like this.  Days where we know if our Mommas heard and saw us, they'd take our butt to the Ladies room for a "chat."

Like the saying goes: Shit Happens.  And sometimes it's your shitty attitude that is happening to everyone around you!  Just remember that when you're the one getting shit on by someone else's attitude.
