When I reach the job site the first person encountered is the guard in his shack. This guard is substituting for the regular guy, and his desire to do a good job is obvious. He doesnít come across like he dislikes his job, or that he has personal opinions about you. Guess who is next to greet, the company jerk. This guy has a degree in being a jerk. In response to this nuisance I give short answers and little commentary on any subject. If this doesnít work to stop or slow him up, I take him around others and drop him off. Entering my work area covers me a feeling that is uncomfortable. My co-workers and I will exchange pleasant words and smiles, but by the end it feels like Iíve worked two completely different jobs, all at one time. Itís hard to portray a cool, calm collected person, and inside you feel frazzeled
I want control of my life. Iíve weighed many theories through-out my life of what is the proper way it should be managed. It seems like contented is a fleeting place, hard to find and virtually impossible to hold on to. Should a job be your career, such as , Iím from a family of several generations of carpenters. Is it better to say I have many skills and my resume confirms it. My job is a great paying job or better to say I love the work that I do. There doesnít appear to me that there is a absolute answer
As I move along in traffic I wonder, who is at the controls of my life. Iím doing my daily Monday thru Friday procedure of going to a home that just gets me by from one day to the next. Iíll make it through this day, but for what reason?
