I make no excuses for this.
It’s me. Always has been.
There are times when the bits and pieces of useless information stay with me for eternity, while more important knowledge flies into the Bermuda Triangle five minutes after it’s been assimilated.
I chuckled to myself last week when one of my
employees former employees called to ask directions in forwarding phone calls.
Her extremely detailed directions were not working.
*thinking, thinking, thinking*
Nope, this tidbit from a past life was lost at sea.
I could offer hope, however, in responding that it’s not that difficult, there are only a few steps, and directions are on my
desk former desk, near the phone. If my life had counted on knowing the specifics, I’d be dead right now.
It made me realize that much of what I know, what I learned on the job, may one day be a hazy thought or not a thought at all. I was also texting with my
boss former boss last week who stated, “You should have said something about how onerous (burdensome) HR is…”
*eye-rolling, eye-rolling, eye-rolling*
Obviously, he had been in the Bermuda Triangle the last few years in regard to HR, but more likely had his own responsibilities to mull over, to remember. I’m guessing that he will not soon forget this time, but he may forget the next step in the hiring process.
As for me, that’s something I hope eventually drifts into haziness, much like pandemics, face masks and Zoom meetings.
If I can remember my own name, where I live and that I need to get dressed before I go out, I’ll be fine.
