Re: What Made You Smile Today?

My coworker Janet mixed me a drink and she made it strong because she said she wanted to hear me sing.
I told her she didn’t have to do that, and that all she had to do was ask. But I certainly thanked her for taking care of me.

Got back to my desk and I was not quite in shape to do reconciliation, or much of anything else.

I work with a few lushes.

The boys drink beer and the girls go straight for the distilled spirits.

I’ll have a little of both.

I don’t sip my drinks. I drink them...because...I like to feel them. I get teased for that.

On a Friday before a holiday, work stops at about noon. That said, I still have to answer the phone...
which is OK, because I can be professional and playful, and do my small talk and make people laugh.

A low-stress day...now that’s reason to smile!


Chocolate-Cherry Kisses,
Ian

Re: What Made You Smile Today?

So a couple of months ago we went through rounds of interviews to fill a position in our department. One of the candidates we interviewed was a young lady who was deaf. Doing that interview was a great experience and so different, I was definitely glad we had that opportunity. We passed on her only because she lacked experience in a couple of areas that really applied to our department and what we do. I thought that a more general accounting type job she would be great for.

We are part of county government, but we are quite independent from the county. We interact with them mostly on an accounting level. I happened to notice not long after that the county itself had an accounting position open. Sometimes we advise each other on some candidates that might be good for the other departments. I sent an email to the Director of Finance who I interact with a fair amount (I wasn't sure this position was even in her department) just to say that I thought this would be someone to consider. I really wanted to emphasize that they shouldn't discount her because she is deaf. Her experience and knowledge I felt was very suited for what they are looking for. She thanked me for sharing that with her and then I forgot about it.

This afternoon I was downtown visiting with the Director of Accounting at the end of the day. Several staff members stopped by on their way out to say "Bye" or "Have a good weekend" to the Director. Suddenly in the doorway, the young lady appeared. She signed out "Have a good weekend" and then we made eye contact. I smiled, waved and nodded my head. She smiled and waved back before leaving. I turned to the Director of Accounting and asked if she worked here. The Director said yes and said that Sherill (the Director of Finance) had said that they should really look at this candidate. I just chuckled and had a big smile on my face and I asked how it was working out. She said despite it being completely new and different having someone who is deaf there, it was working out extremely well. Then she asked why I was so interested and I told her about us interviewing her at the health department and then me talking to Sherill about her.

I said I just thought that she would be a good employee and so I reached out to Sherill about that position, just in the hope she would at least get a chance to interview. My fear was that someone would see, "Oh, she's deaf" and then immediately they were out of the conversation because people didn't want to have to deal with those complications. So to see that they looked past that and now she works for them (and is doing well) just absolutely made my day. The fact that people looked past something that would scare others off and said we can work around that and make this work is what I love. Also the fact that I could indirectly make an impact on someone's life (and they don't even know it) is something I live for. So that's what made me smile today!

The mushroom log we bought last year and neglected to nurture properly has been in the basement for about a week now. We decided to soak it again and stick it down there just for sh*** and giggles. Well guess what? There's two shroom babies growing on it now. Ha!

haha! how cool I don't know wtf it is about your shiitake log, but I've always found it neat and was hoping it'd do better for you. Hope these 2 little guys grow and that maybe more babies will pop up in the future too now!
