It’s Getting Old

I’ve been at my job, sitting in this seat for a long time. Sure, they let me go home at night and on the weekends, and for that I’m very grateful. I don’t want to sound like I’m not. However, I’m not always exactly a “people-person”. My job is to sit at this desk and check-out patients as they leave the doctor’s office. This “checking-out” includes making follow up appointments here in the office and all outside appointments to specialists and for radiology (x-rays, ultrasounds, CT, MRI, etc).

The problem I’m seeing with myself recently is that I don’t really have anything to say to the patients as they leave. I feel like I’ve had every conversation you could possibly have multiple times over. I know what they are going to say to me when they walk up; I’ve heard all the “funny” sayings before. I’ve heard every response possible, it seems, to every question I need to ask to schedule any type of appointment. I fell I’ve “been there, done that, got the T-shirt”. I desire change.

I like to be mentally stimulated, yet I live in a routine, caught in a rut you might say. I’ve spent much time on the Caedmon’s Call fan boards at in order to get some mental stimulation. I just had my review at work and told my boss that my weakness was that I get bored easily. I told her that when I get bored, I find something else to amuse me. She didn’t seem to have a problem with that. Therefore, I’ll probably be around here blogging, chatting at rmfo, and generally fooling around most of the day until I up and find a new job. The only problem with that is I’ll probably lose my slacking time at a new job. Oh well. 🙂

    Slacking time is only critical when your job is insanely boring… like mine. 🙁

    Well, it’s boring here, but I think you’re saying it wouldn’t be critical in a new, exciting job, right? That is true, but I am getting fond of this whole slacking thing. I probably ought to get that bad habit out of my system sometime soon…
