Weekends are a Must

I learned that lesson this week.  I need my weekends away from work.  I've discussed on here before that I have the "work" me and the "real" me.  I really try to mute my real me for work.  Cause the real me is a blunt, sarcastic, cussin', burpin' country girl and that doesn't fare very well in my professional job (what's up with that, huh!).  Even my muted self is more uncensored than the majority of my co-workers.  I usually get a few jaw dropped looks at some of my remarks.

So my weekends are important.  It's a time for the true me to shine, uninhibited, streaking across the field, thus allowing the censored me to be more accessible during the work week.  But this last weekend, the muted self had to work overtime.  Overtime work self equals real self coming out prior to Friday evening!  Yea, not good.


Take for example, this incident.  Someone at work was really irritating me with his incoherent babbling.  I finally had enough and told him if he didn't stop, I was going to shove something up his "you know what!"  But, I didn't use the phrase "you know what."

Today I went to my satellite office and kept myself busy.  It's best that way!  But I thought it better to take a day off before I hurt someone or my mouth got me in real trouble.  So I am off work until Tuesday!  My mouth is free!!!!  It feels so good to be true to myself.

I hear ya! I think from previous posts we have some similiarities in the work field (ie: court related) -- I'm starting my 3rd month not working in the public but for the same entity-- Yahoo I am loving it... and this cussing, burping country pumpkin or redneck hillybilly gal can do or say anything my little heart wishes! Other agents talk stress - they don't know stress -- I hear ya girl - enjoy this long weekend!

I think maybe your co worker benefited from seeing some of your inner steel. Maybe he'll watch his mouth so you don't have to watch yours?
Sorry to hear about the girl cat, but judging by his smile, Pepper isn't to upset!
I love the sunrise in your second photo in the post below. Early to rise and early to bed- me too!

Boy, do I know what you mean, and it is a good thing that I don't work in that kind of environment, because it would take me a long time to watch what comes out of my mouth. I unfortunately was brought up with a mother that never cared what she said or how she said it!

I've had days like that and I think we are very alike in the muted/non-muted me. I've learned to not say anything for fear that the self-edit button is completely stuck. Hope you have a wonderful long weekend!

Nancy said...

Yep, have those days too - and when this Okie gets riled - look out!

Girl, I'd want you on my side in a battle any day.

Lil Mama said...

I knew I liked you.
P.S aren't you armed at work? That should be enough.

Girl, sometimes you just have to "let 'er rip"! It sucks that the "muted self" takes up so much of our time though, doesn't it?

I would have loved to have seen that babbling idiots face though...
