The Not So Fantastic Reality:
The above story was inspired by the following tidbits I encountered today:
ONE: There seemed to be a common theme today, and not just for yours truly. You know those days where everyone you talk to has some bug up their hoo-ha? Well, today almost everyone I interacted with seemed to be having one specific issue- encountering a general lack of professionalism. Whether it was a co-worker who had to adjust her schedule three times for a state-organized conference she was asked to be a guest speaker for because they couldn’t figure out when they wanted her, or Andy having to bust his butt because another department on the movie set took the day off; and then back to me having to patiently rely on others to get a job done that I could have finished in about 30 minutes (you have to go through certain channels, you see). Whatever the case, there seems to be a real shortage on the level of professionalism and accountability people maintain these days. Are people just too busy, too stressed, too self-consumed? I’m still trying to figure it out… just hope it’s not gone forever and maybe one day it will make a comeback.
