Flu and Scabies

Things are going pretty smooth at work but it is a little stressful being short one pharmacist.  We have one retired pharmacist coming in on wed. to help out, so that is nice but tuesdays and thursdays we only have one pharmacist until our new PIC starts.  Kinda a crazy time of the year to be short staffed.

We are expirencing the typical cold and upper resp. stuff but seeing alot of tamiflu scripts all of a sudden. 

Then headlice and scabies started going around too.  YUCK YUCK YUCK. 

I am glad there are 2 counters between them and me most of the time.  Unless I have to help run the cash register and that gets me down to one. 

I admit, I am a germ-a-phobe.   I am always on the cashiers to wipe down the counters and pens.  BUT I dont have any children to bring that crap home to me.  I rarely ever get sick.  And when I do, my kick ass immune system does its job.  I am not one of those jolly rogers,jump on the antibiotic at the first sign of a sniffle.  I have to be dying.  I am allergic to sulfa and quinolone antibiotics, so I am not about built up resistance to other antibiotics using them willy-nilly...but that is just me.

Have a good one.

Grand scheme of things

Even though I feel like in our meeting I was totally thrown under the bus, I do feel like the tension has melted at work.  I am just using that meeting as a reset point personally when dealling with my coworkers.  Part of me does have some resentment but I know if I cannot move forward from it, things will never get better and we will all just be stuck in an endless cycle of back biting and bitchyness.  And I am over it.  We just need to come together as a team.  And if I had to take all the blame, I guess so be it.  That is how it played out.  I am going to have to except it and move foward.

My husband on the other had is furious.  He cannot believe I was treated that way and thinks I should tell everyone to go to hell and let the owner fire me.  That is just not acceptable.  I was not raised that way.  I do not want the shame and embarrassment that goes along with a firing.  Plus I am good at what I do.  I get paid really well.  I drive 7 miles vs. up to 45 to the city.  No thank you.  He thinks I am letting them walk all over me and that I am not standing up for myself.  I think, the economy is still in the toilet and jobs are still scarce and I better just suck it up for now.

IF something comes along, I might take it.  I might go part time...who knows.  He reciently became partner at his company.  We are business owners now.  That is something I never thought I would say.  So we are busier with that.  I do alot of computer stuff for them.

I know things will work out.  It can only get better from here.  Our new manager starts in March.  It is a woman.  I hope she is not a bitch!

NEW Manager

We have a new manager starting hopefully March 2nd.  I am glad.  I didnt realize all this time my old one hated me and was basically plotting against me.  Monday we had a meeting: the owner, the manager, and the 3 techs because we have been having all these issues.  And that asshole basically went against everything he told me in our meetings we had, flipped the script on me, turned things around on me and made me into the bad guy.

If he was going to do that.  Why not tell me face to face that he was a chicken shit bastard.  Why tell me that he felt like I was being wronged.  Why not speak up and tell me he has issues with me when had a chance.  Coward.  I am glad he is gone.  He said I made him mad one day because after we got a new print cartridge and  we changed it the first page printed out completly black.  I made a joke about it.  He said that pissed him off for several hours.  HOURS.  Are you kidding me.  Grow the fuck up!

Glad he is gone and in another state.  Peace dude!
