The Resolutioner

Standard

This morning, New Year’s resolution guy is still sweaty from the gym. He has lost 16 lbs since January 1st. He is on a mission to save the world from fat people. His super power is his ability to clear the seatsIMAG0844 around us by offending everyone, so they move. I, on the other hand have taken a different approach. I like that he has chased everyone off and the seats around me are empty. After his third attack on my coffee habit I took to putting my coffee in water bottle and pretend that he is the greatest warrior on obesity since Richard Simmons, such an inspiration to us all! Good job New Year’s Resolution guy!

In more exciting news, the Tiger is back. He is a vet with great stories.  He watches over our car while the others sleep. He is tired, he has a hard time sitting still as he makes his way to the VA every day for physical therapy. The tiger has lived a full life and has much wisdom.

About Andi

This chapter in my life is called, "Managing Millennials". People always say that I have a way with words, and that I am great at managing Millennials. The secret truth to my success? I worked at a public high school. I was an educator that specialized in behavior and building relationships. So what happens when the sweet little kids that inspired me to sponsor clubs, put in extra hours and spend my own money all enter the workforce???? They drive you crazy! I can help! I understand why these participation trophy earning young adults are driving you crazy in the work place. I understand that the fact that we are inheriting a technology talented pool of workers that sit at their desk with ear buds in their ears and celebrate medicocricy in the name if effort. I understand that you are not used to emojis and GIFs in business communication, and that you don't want to stand around on a break discussing memes, vines, YouTube epic fail videos and what you binge watched on Netflix. I once told my students that they would learn to follow my rules because I refused to be miserable for the next 1488 hours of my life. Ninety percent of the time... They did. Now, I tell my millennials that same thing, "Welcome to the workforce. There are policies and procedures in place that will help us get along for the next 2080 hours of our lives." Welcome to my blog, "Let The Managers Say Amen."
