I am absolutely amazed at the brain’s capacity to process sooo much in a split second. Especially emotions. There seems to be so much information behind each emotion we feel, and for that to just switch in an instant blows my mind. Well, I guess it should blow my mind, but…it doesn’t…and….that’s why I’m amazed…..yeah! Maybe it did blow my mind after all.
When I came into work today I was absolutely livid. I was mad at the mortgage company, the ex, my bank, the idiot who charged my account $750 for God knows what, the fact that I missed Ace last night on idol trying to get this bank crap straight! I think I cussed in my brain for every step I took towards the office from my car this morning. I ran off all the reasons why I hate all the entities I just mentioned and yes, by the way, how I was going to hate having to call my Executive Director to have her put a stop on my direct deposit so that it too does not get swallowed up in the sink whole that is my checking account. Did I mention that the rent check is out there?
Then, I get into work, make a few phone calls and get actual people to talk to and find out that the ex didn’t pay the mortgage from my bank account, the IRS isn’t garnishing my wages, nobody stole my credit card. Some dyslexic mom trying to send her kid to LEADAmerica, some leadership training institute, transposed the digits in her account number and gave mine instead. Hasn’t it occurred to anyone that account numbers should be random and NOT that easy to get confused? Anyway a few phone calls, faxes and credits to my account and I am a happy woman again. No more “filth, flarn, filths”. Only, “good morning sunshines!” I’m a pleasant person again in a flash. It’s amazing. My body even feels different. I guess that’s the adrenalin shutting off.
Well, happy times now.
Have a great day!
