Who Knew I'd Have to Take a Number

This morning I was still pissed about the whole screech owl thing. I was going over what would be the best way to bring the subject up because I knew she wouldn't. There was no way she was going to talk about anything she messed up. C came in before the screech owl and I knew something wasn't right with her. She's usually talkative, bubbly and hyper. Today I never heard her say too much and she was the farthest thing from hyper.

The screech owl showed up and now I was torn. How do I bring up the whole blame thing and do I do it today because I knew C was ready to boil over. C made it to lunch without anything happening which surprised me. Shes really not one to hold anything in. I can't remember when it happened but I happen to come across the chart of the baby who got the expired shot. I asked if the parents were called so they knew what had happened and that the baby needed to come back to get another shot. This is when the screech owl said she was just sick about what happened yada yada yada. My reply to her was, yeah I heard I also got the blame for it. Oooohhh nooo she said. Her explanation was that she had said I was the last one to give a shot out of that vaccine bottle, 10 days before it expired and I should have put a note on it. I told her wow thats funny I thought thats why they put the date on the bottle because thats where I always check. She didn't have a snappy comeback. I think if she had my fist would have snapped upside her head.

Later this afternoon the pot boiled over. C has been working her ass off at home and at work and it seems no matter what the girl does she doesnt do anything right and someones always riding her ass. Today she had enough. There was a breakdown of epic proportions. I being the great employee that I am covered for her at the front desk lines were ringing people were signing in it was crazy. Now you would think knowing what was going on screech owl would step it up. Yeah ya know damn well she didnt. In fact not only was I answering phones, taking messages, making appointments, doing nurse call backs, I also had to take all the patients back because she sat on her ass.

So I am redoing the resume and putting it out there. And when I get a job with good benifets and pay thats better than the screech owl I will tell her to suck it!
