Don't you just hate when you get into the bah humbug frame of mind this time of year? I swear some days I should just pull the covers over my head and not subject everyone to my moods. I don't know why but today everyone that spoke to me was in danger of losing their heads! Clarice has been thrown out of the tv room twice tonight and now she's rattling the doors trying to get back in but she's used her Get Out Of Jail Free card today. She's taken to clawing Mark's chair when she thinks we're not playing enough with her and I've just reached the end of my rope. We've fought a lot about declawing her for months but if she keeps this up I might lose the battle. Last night she slipped past Mark when he went outside to feed the boys and we didn't miss her for about 10 minutes then we started tearing the house apart trying to find her. I kept asking Mark if he was sure she didn't get out but he insisted there was no way! I went outside called her but no Clarice. At that point Mark was starting to panic when he saw her hiding in the planters down below the deck. She's gonna be the death of me yet! She's never been outside unless she was on a leash so it was a moment of terror when we were trying to catch her. Two overweight adults running thru the yard in the rain in the pitch black trying to catch a black cat was quite a humorous scene...too bad there wasn't a video camera catching it because we'd probably won America's Funniest Video show.
We're shorthanded and the super brite powers that be sent out packets (and I do mean packets) of account information to customers and they are freaking out! This is worse than when we failed and I honestly didn't think it could get much worse than that. And this is priceless.....but one of the disclosures states that we'll be charging "dormant" fees if you don't use your account or maintain a certain balance and guess what.....no one bothered to check Georgia State Banking laws and we can't do what they told customers that we'd be doing. Last week in class when they reviewed the disclosures with us, I asked if anyone checked the law because I didn't think that was correct. Still no one checked so I did a quick google search and there it was! WTF! I brought it to senior management's attention yesterday and still no one has acknowledged it.
We've still got to finish some last minute shopping tomorrow so I certainly hope my mood improves. We're still pondering what to get the dads and just can't think of anything. I'm usually full of ideas but drawing a complete blank for this year. Maybe something will pop into my head tonight in my dreams. Hope all your shopping is done and if not that you don't cross my path tomorrow...LOL!
