What are you mad, you are opening yourself up to all sorts of liabilities?
But who am I to say, it is compulsory after all to join in for an hour of socialising with your peers on a Friday from 4pm to 5pm. Wine, beer, cider, cheese, crackers served.
If you don’t join in then must keep working, like a punishment of sorts, joy!
Guess you could go and not drink but frankly I have more pressing concerns with my time such as, grocery shopping, cooking dinner, talking to my family, ironing, cleaning and any other number of chores you haven’t been able to get to as you start work at 7am.
I wake at 5.30 to get to work by 7.00 am don’t get home most nights till 5/5.15pm
I try to walk 4kms a day after work
I blog, having an audience I like to entertain, who by the way entertain me heaps to, my peeps stretch across three countries, Australia, New Zealand and the UK that I know of.
I have been approached to advertise on my blog, I have refused, if I did advertise then I think that would be more work for me to do content wise and I struggle a little now with all I have on my plate.
I like to write short stories enhances my blogging skills; (so I like to think, don’t burst my bubble please) whether I will actually do anything further with them I doubt but that’s not the point.
I love to read and am pushing to read more so TV is already kept to a minimum of half hour news and one hour of a favourite show a night.
I tweet while I am sitting watching that hour of TV the half hour news I watch while I eat dinner.
I instagram at the same time that I tweet, the master of multitasking I am, it is a struggle to maintain those links as I barely have time to post photos let alone take photos. Who knew?
I am studying a Graduate Certificate which eats up my time like there’s no tomorrow, I challenge myself to maintain my grade or do better, studying most days, researching, reading, preparing assignments.
I have a FB audience of writers and friends that I like to build relationships with who are going to receive minimal content from me for the next six months, so hoping they don’t abandon me as these loyal followers I adore, these peeps make me happy, feeling wanted, I know I’m not nosey as I am genuinely interested in what they are up to.
I have a social life that I am reluctant to give up, crazy I know, who does that, we maybe go out once on a weekend sometimes if we are lucky twice, daring aren’t we.
I have a daughter who is planning an engagement party and then planning for a wedding and I’m jumping in boots and all, not that she wants that but I am after all a mother.
I have another daughter who has also recently got engaged, has two dogs that when I can and am asked I am so keen to babysit for overnighters or weekends, I can’t neglect them when they are here I feel such a bad nana when I do. I know they are dogs (family) but when they are here they are my responsibility. It’s so good to have them and makes me exercise, walking, is mandatory.
So no I don’t want to stay for drinks after work on a Friday I would rather resign as I am so stretched already and have better things to do plus this workplace has made me so anxious even my doctor thinks I should give them the flick (true story).
Would you rather I resigned?
Unless you have found a way to clone me perhaps, would a cut out cardboard figure do, just don’t get me wet?
Your faithful flailing servant
I can’t believe you want me to waste time drinking and socialising, I know there is so something wrong with me, the anxiety tablets aren’t working just making me bloody tired and cranky.
