Grumpy by day, contemplative by night

Work put me in a bad mood today. The problems we encountered could have in part been prevented had the things I've been talking about been implemented. That's why I'm so frustrated.

I try to rope in some perspective as the day winds down. I've become invested in this job, for better or worse, and I want it to be successful. It's just hard to feel positive when you can't enact the change and process that you know will help the cause.

Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day. I'm getting on a plane in about a week to do one of the most important things of my life. I don't have the capacity right now for frustration.

Probably my biggest complaint in my job. As many times as I'm told I need to "work with the team" when I suggest things that will make some of our processes so much more efficient and would benefit our users, I'm blown off. If I bring the ideas to another person and let them present my ideas to the PTB's, things get done, which is even more frustrating...it definitely shows how little respect I get.

As Gordon told me recently, I'm stuck in golden handcuffs. It's unlikely I can find another job that pays what I'm making now. I can't afford a pay cut nor to leave the job. I can only slog along until I afford to retire.
