I had to work from 8-12:30 today so I got up at 5 and had a leisurely morning of two cups of coffee and prayer.
Then I went and dressed in the nice clean uniform I laid out last night. Did my hair and makeup and was out the door.
I walked into work with a few hellos and good mornings to customers and workers.
I mentioned to Miss Grumpy that I loved to work mornings because I felt rested and ready to go.
She looked at me with a look of disgust and told me I was way too chipper.
Too Chipper now?
I have seen people who I thought were too chipper and they look and act fake.
I say hello how are you to my customers not to make myself look friendly or anything like that. I ask them how they are because I truly care about ....um how they are!
And when I say Good Morning I mean just that...I hope you have a wonderful day and that you celebrate the new day that God has given us to celebrate life!
Then I started thinking about being chipper.
If this means that I am a chip off of my parents then I take that as a huge compliment. I feel honored to be a chip off the block of my loving, caring and awesome people who raised me.
My parents taught me to care about people and to show compassion and respect for those around me.
After my break I was called into the MAIN managers office . I was being evaluated. He said I scored high in every single category, my highest being customer service......
I GOT A RAISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So take that Mr. KB and Miss Grumpy!
And I laughed all the way to the bank!!!!!!
