- somewhat of a rant here - Do the morons you work with raise your bs levels? I find it interesting that, while stress is alread built into the job, it's the lazy morons I work with that get my blood boiling and raise my bs. I have kept track of 'moron days', as I call them, for a few months and my bs goes up 50-60 pts on average on those days! I was frustrated a little bit with bs levels here and there - couldn't figure it out - even eating the same things at the same times of the day but each day was different. That's nothing new, we can be weird that way, but it wasn't until I found that it was 'moron' stress that was causing it! It's not asking diabetes questions - just regular work stuff.
It would be easy to say 'don't pay attention to them' but we are in a commission pool so we all share. The laziness and entitlement amazes me sometimes and it directly effects my paycheck! I love what I do and glad I have a job but these guys are killing me and burning me out. One plays games all day, although he has one large acct so no one pays attention. One complains all day long that we hired a 4th guy even though there is not enough biz in our region to cover it. The 4th came in with just a couple small accts so he sits around all day doing nothing or talking to friends all day about what woman he met the night before at the bar.(recent divorce for him so this is a brand new fun chapter for him- yippie- for the record, I side with his ex) All of them come in an hour to hour and a half later than they should too. We are on the west coast but work east coast hours so we're in, well, I'm in around 4 AM. I blew up at them last week after months of being nice and just making suggestions but they are right back to the usual lack of effort. The boss? He's in another office and doesn't do much about it despite my complaints/suggestions. Some days are just worse than others. The only good part about it is that they don't know much about diabetes and don't think of blaming my anger/frustration on the disease. If they did, I might be on the news for work place violence (not that I condone it, but you know what I mean!)
Sorry for the long one and negativity but had to get it off the chest. Feelin better now! Thx
(PS I use another term for moron but thought I'd keep it PG here)
