I'm back

Hello, I'm BAAAACK.

These last two weeks have been the weeks from Hell at work. 60 plus hours each week, preparing for and then doing a Wall to Wall audit of my inventory for the Repair and Overhaul department.

Good news, with a $50,000 inventory, after all the pluses and minses are taken into account, we only had to write off $250.00. Best inventory ever. EVER.

Have I received any acknowledgment from the compay?

No.

Didn't really expect too, but still. My warehouse isn't a totally secured area. The R&O department is a 24/7 operation and I am only there from 6 to 3:30 Monday thru Friday and 5 to 12 on Saturday. So the team leads of swing and graves have access to get parts, and I know they don't always leave me notes that they have taken things. That I have been able to track missing parts and get them charged to the proper units has been an ongoing struggle.

I admit it. I'm obsessive about my inventory. I'm responsible and I take the job seriously.

At least for the next two months. Then we are getting a new computer system and the R&O harware goes away. All of the hardware will belong to production, and I will go back to being a drone in the main warehouse.

The more things change, the more they stay the same. Maybe I'll win the lottery tonight and I can tell them where to shove it.

ANYWAY. Enough of the feeling sorry for myself. This is such a petty problem compared to the problems of others.

I came home and crashed last night, went to bed at 9:30 and didn't get up until almost 10 today. (GASP! I took Saturday off! I thought the day shift team lead would faint when I told him I wasn't going to be there today.) Last night, just before going to bed, I was listening to a soundtrack CD from the movie The Mirror Has Two Faces and the last song on the CD, a song that's not in the movie, inspired me to write a story.

Here it is.

Disclaimers: I do not own the characters used in this story and I am making no profit from it. This story is purely for entertainment purposes. I do not have the right to use the song All of My Life, music by Barbra Steisand and Marvin Hamlisch, words by Alan and Marilyn Bergman. It is a special bonus song on the movie soundtrack, The Mirror Has Two Faces, a beautiful love story about someone who is afraid to reach out for the love that is right in front of them. The song inspired this story.
