Lost and Naked
About a month ago, Den had to go to Texas to train some people at their sister company. I'm proud of him and I tell him. He was given flight times and a print out. He knew that a hotel was booked but didn't get the paper for that. He also wanted a rental car.
About three days before he left, he became...................hmmmm how do I say this.............pissy. Den is pretty easy going so even when he is a grouch, it is tolerable. I, on the other hand, am not tolerable at times. But he was stepping it up a notch even by my standards.
And then it dawned on me, I take care of everything when we travel. Hell, I take care of everything all the time. And now he was on his own. I know that some would see this as a valuable training lesson. giggle. But it is my job to organize the family(as Den puts it, I would say browbeat them into submission) so I took over for the poor man. I rented the car and added all the addresses to the GPS. I put all the info on his flights, room, and car in his phone. I also set everything out that he would need to pack.
Once I took over, the stress left him. All he had to do was get up and drive to the airport. I had even found out where he had to go to catch the bus to get to the car rental place.
Sometimes, I forget how lucky I am to have this job. CEO and Organizer. And I love how I feel when I make their lives easier. I really am blessed. And so are you because if I didn't take care of these people they would be lost and naked. This is a site you really don't want to see. I'm speaking from experience.
Keepin' people clothed,
