Too many deadlines, expectations, standards to meet. When do I get a cookie for doing a good job? Where is the pat on the head and the affirmation that I’m doing good? Instead, it’s: here’s more. Now do this too. And to top it off, the phones have stopped working and the lights went out. What’s up with that? And since when did everyone switch to another language? Do I need a passport to show up for work now? I’m not thrilled with the new employee on the other side of my cube wall. Growling. Weird spikes hair, or maybe those are feathers. Sparks for sure, and a rainbow.
