Today I get to do one of my favorite things and interact with human resources folks at my new job. This has left me in a reflective mood.
I am wondering, if my new job is a transfer within the same health network, why I need to provide my credentials all over again. Is this not a waste of resources?
Why do I need to provide my CPR certification for a job in hospice? I don't plan on resuscitating the dying. Will I need to provide Advanced Cardiac Life Support certification along with the Fundamentals of Critical Care Support Provider certificate as well?
Why did I not consider gas costs and the mileage spanking I'm about to take on with this new job? Did I want change so badly that this was not even a fleeting thought? It's a hike to the west side of town which is about to become my new territory. Note to self: renew XM radio and scout all the Panera Breads between here and there (free internet.) The Dingo's got a new slogan on the header of his home page and it fits me to a tee: "he who laughs last, thinks slowest." That's me. Slow.
If I ask my husband where something may be, he'll counter with "I don't know, where did you file it?" Obviously, if I knew, I wouldn't be asking him. Subsequently, I don't ask where he may have put something anymore, I jump right to the accusation that he threw it out. This is not always the case and I must work on getting better organized. I just never knew I'd need to reproduce the documents I need for today to the same organization I've worked for on and off for the last 16 years!
Do work places change the name of human resources to Work-Life Services because people
like me always called that department Inhumane Resources?
Where the hell did I put my social security card? I'd put money on a burglar being able to find it, but I'll be damned if I can.
