Lack of respect

I had the most trying week at work and I feel bushed. My day consists of dealing with queries, fending off rude students and trying to juggle school and work.

Am I the only person in this world who still respects others’ personal space? Why do most people feel the need to plonk their stuff on my desk, (or lean on it) when they ask me a question? It freaks me out! Some even pick documents up off my desk while they are talking to me, and others, feel the need to step behind my desk and whisper in my ear!! No, I am not kidding, I wish that I was. I smell people’s breath and sweat all day long., (and sometimes their spit when they decide to scream at me).

I realise that this is not the norm in my office. Registration can be a tedious and frustrating process for all involved. I pray for inner strength so that I may stay calm and motivated and my bubbly self while I tackle my second week at work. It is so difficult to remain professional and to keep a smile on my face. I vow to beat “them rude people” and to stay true to myself.

P.S. That does not mean that I am going to get violentJ
