They’ll be all decked out in their new plaid flannel shirts and Wrangler Jeans yelling … “Yee Haw! I love me some Ohio! … and if you vote for me … you’ll be shittin Golden Corn outcher ass in no time flat!
“Welp, I gotta stop and git me one of them there snow cones at the County Fair and shake a few calloused hands of real men … before hoppin back on my tour bus that has more amenities than you could every dream of having.”
“Shucks ~ Thanks ya’ll”
They didn’t call it Dyslexia …
They called it …
It took me for-fucking-ever to learn to tie my shoes.
I figured it out the old fashioned way …
Sheer determination and a butt load of practice.
Pffft … We didn’t have no stinkin Velcro.
I also learned how to knit, crochet, macrame, quilt, cross stitch, embroider, etc ….
Long story short ~
I put together and sent my ideas for a Morale Boosters Club to Management.
I suggested asking employees to join a “Club” and do cool little things for their co-workers to boost their morale …
Basically like Random Acts of Kindness
I was invited to present my ideas to all of the Supervisors.
After my presentation …
They said they were interested!
They said, “Don’t call us … we’ll call you”.
Old guy out …
New guy in.
He seemed really cool.
So I sent him a copy of my ideas ………..
I got nuthin.
Not a thing.
Crickets … :: chirp, chirp, chirp ::
Personally, I kinda liked the “don’t call us” brush off better …
At least I was acknowledged.
So anyway …
I finally just figured they don’t care about Morale.
*I’m a slow learner BTW*
Don’t get me wrong …
We’re thrown a few bones here and there …
Hawaiian theme lunches, free chips & salsa for Cinco DeMeyo …
And the ever popular …. FREE JEAN DAY!
But that’s just putting a Band-Aid on a gaping wound.
So you might be asking yourself …
“Self … how does she think the MBC is a success? Nobody even knows what it is.”
Well … it took a Hell of a lot of courage for me to stand up in front of a room full of all the “Important People”.
The Suits, The Powers That Be …
you know what I mean.
I had to suck up every once of courage I could muster …
I had to overcome my anxiety, nervousness, awkwardness …
And face what I dread most …
Speaking in public.
But Damn It!
I Did It!
And it feels great!
I have boosted my own Morale to better work on myself!
President and only member of the MBC
