Scurry Worry - How Good are You with Managing your Time?

Posted Date: 2015-12-22

At our local supermarket there is a cashier that appears highly stressed. She’d be about 60 and she’s very skinny. When you see her, everything she does is rushed. If they’d let her control another 4 scanners she’d volunteer. Even when she’s cleaning the counter, she wipes the surface faster. Sometimes she forgets to greet the customer as she’s so focussed on the next item to scan. She’s quite a nice person but why does she need to operate in such a fashion? 

Time Management

I was recently at home reading the paper when I noticed a couple of wasps. I looked up 5 minutes later and there were now half a dozen. A further look reveals the wasps are building a nest on the side of my house and they were also infiltrating my poor handyman works and getting into the house. So a call to the wasp man ends in shock. $450 and he’d be there in 3 hours. It could have been 3 weeks, months or years as my ears ceased to operate when I heard $450.

The Camp of No Responsibility

I’d like to say this is a fictitious camp but I’m not sure that it is. Everyone who comes into this camp bears no responsibility. All campers have one thing in common. It’s never their fault. It is always someone else’s fault. They live in their camps throughout their lives blissfully unaware that they too have to take on responsibility. 

Is a Complaint Really a Gift?

Now I’ve just fired off an email complaint to our photocopier company. I won’t mention the brand yet. Our machine is a lemon. It has been a lemon for 12 months. So I’ve sent an email to the exec team highlighting the main issues over the past 12 months. The company is market leader and I’ve already complained that they have a first class product backed up with 3rd class service.
