Be Nice

Remember when someone told you to 'Be nice to people on your way up, because you might see them again on your way down'? You had better believe this is the trufus Rufus!!

At the place that pays me, there is a new person. I worked with this person when I first started working for Uncle LeRoy. I was the new person, LOWEST on the totem pole, and she basically treated me like the presents Crazy Dog leaves me in his litterbox. I am nice to everyone, until you cross me.

To make a long story short. One day, at the old cotton field, there was something she needed done, but could have waited until the new month started. I told her that no one taught me how to override the system to accomplish this mission that was 'hot'. She wasn't very happy with that answer, kept yakking at me about it. When I looked away to my computer to see who sent me a message she told me:
You better look at me when I talk to you.
I had to catch my self before I was escorted from cotton field! I told her that my own father didn't talk to me like that, and she needed to leave my office, before I do something and get fired (it takes a lot to get bumped from Uncle LeRoy's team, and what I was thinking about doing would have justified the bumping of me).

Fast forward 3 years, and guess who the new person is?? Guess who the lowest on the totem pole now?? I should add that she's been working for Uncle LeRoy since 1989, and I have been working for him since 2001, and we are on the same level now...equals. She won't be too happy when she finds that out.

Honestly, I hold no grudges. I am there to pick cotton, so I can afford food and DVDs for the eating machine. All I do is pick my share of cotton and go home.

So, to recap:
Be nice to people on your way up, because you might will see them again on your way down.

On another note...

My weekend class in Heidelberg has been cancelled. That leaves LOTS of time to sleep and do laundry, since P will be with D for the weekend. She hasn't even left yet, and I'm already counting down the hours until she comes home Sunday evening.


Everyone take care, and have a great weekend.
