Okay, I know this happened last thursday, but I didn't have a chance to type it up until today. I am in charge of doing the mail run at work, which means I run around to all the differnt VOA buildings and deliver inter-office mail. I just started doing this last week, just so you know. Anyway, I accidentally put 2 of the mail bags on the top of the car and then drove off, leaving them in the street (YIKES! BIG WHOOPS! :-O ) according to the receptionist in the place I was parked in front of, some guy in a gray suburban picks them up, puts them in his car, and takes off (WTF? DONT TAKE STUFF THAT'S NOT YOURS!) Anyway, I get a call from my boss's boss (whom we'll call J) as I'm stopping at the next place on the route, and she chews me out for my mistake. I continually say "I'm sorry", almost in tears, and she says "I know you are sorry." (WAHHH!) Anyway, I spend the rest of the mail run feeling sick and scared that sensitive information (and maybe money) has been stolen.
Here is where I find out God answers prayer : Between my last 2 stops, I start praying that God will help that person decide to return the mailbags. When i arrive at my final stop, some nice person tells me that the person who took the mailbags called and he's returned the bags to the place they were taken from (still weirds me out that he didn't just do that in the 1st place) But, a wieght lifts from my shoulders. YAY! See? I should have started praying earlier. Sometimes I think when I have doubts about god's existance that he has to little things like this to smack me in the face and say "DONT IGNORE ME!" hee hee
Ok, and here's the part of this whole situation that annoys me. I get back to my workplace, and my boss comes in and tells me the good news offically, and soothes my feathers and tells me that it's all okay. But he says "J wanted me to wait a while to tell you, and let you 'stew' a little, but I didn't want to. I know you stress out enough as it is." I'm just wondering... WTF??? What kind of manager thinks it's a good idea to let a person who is so upset that they are almost crying "STEW"? WTF? Did she think it would help me learn something or something??? I don't understand people sometimes.
But I'm better now that I've had the weekend to relax. NYAR!
