Hello Everyone,

October 2015

I love October, not just because it is my birthday month but because the air changes, the season changes, the time changes.

It is when we must embrace the fact that the time change will have us seeing the dark sooner. A time when the trees begin to let loose the leaves, orange, brown and yellow leaves flying about.

It is the time when the ghouls and horrors are seen in decorations, shows, movies and parties.

It is the time when we say farewell to the summer heat, smile toward the cooler weather and wonder of the winter to come.

Happy October! May there be light within you to shine upon the earlier darker hours. May the ghouls and gremlins that ring the door bell make you smile and partake in trick or treat.

May you embrace the change in season knowing... it will bring us back to Spring soon enough.

I have added a tab - Whisper my words, which is a link to my site where I post stories, poems, AndMore events and the Watcher's Journal. Take a peek and enjoy.

MSNBC had a link to an article from The Work Buzz called 13 ways you're driving your co-workers nuts, here is the link - http://www.theworkbuzz.com/work/office-etiquette/drive-your-co-workers-nuts/?ocid=xnetr3-1

I agree with:

#5 - “People who enter your office, see you speaking on the phone w/ a customer and plop down and wait listening to the whole conversation while doing distracting things like picking up items, photos, etc. from your desk. Or even worse, when they try to talk interrupt your call and ask you questions while you are still on the phone. Rude, rude, rude.” — Tracey E., via Facebook

I think #9 is just ACIDNINE! - “My pet peeve is people who show up late for meetings. I was always taught that 5 min. early is on time!” — Em V., via Facebook

#10 - “People who use and wear scented products in enclosed workspaces which can literally kill a person who is chemically sensitive. Employers need to embrace and enforce fragrance free policies. I consider this the new 2nd hand smoke issue.” — Hedwig R., via Facebook

I'll add a couple

#14 - People who think a fashion statement is cause for a raise when their job has nothing to do with fashion.

#15 - People who don't wash their hands after they use the bathroom and feel as though it is their right to touch everything.

Oh oh one more......drum roll please.......

#16 - People who don't answer your email then complain that you are not quick enough with their demands.

What's your pet-peeves?
