Last Wed I got a huge shock! Sorry that I'm posting this now instead of that day. I just want to scream and shout for joy. I FINALLY get to go back to DC starting as early as next week! I'm being put back on the GIS contract for 3 months! I was on the GIS contract for THREE years! I'm covering for someone who's taking maternity leave. At least I get to get away from the Accountant. Again he's also known as Comptroller, or Payroll. I dont think the HR manager and him ever had a long discussion about what he said or did to me, but my dad believes what the Accountant did to me about the phone message, was totally wrong! I worked at a nursing home for 3 years dealing with writing down phone messages, and handing it to whoever the caller requested, with no problems. I left the nursing home position, because it was just too depressing for me to handle. I would see a white rose on the receptionist desk every week. I couldnt handle the deaths of the residents living there. I was attached to some of the residents.

But this whole going back to DC is a dream. God is watching over me. But here's the downside.

1. Although I'm there till end of July, what if its temporaly and I get laid off? I know the downside of contracting is getting laid off.

2. This can be permanent position. (I HOPE SO!!!)

3. I can get moved to another entry level contract by end of July.

4. Once end of July is near, I can get moved back to our corporate office which will be further west than where I'm at now. It would take about a 35 min commute, but it will be less hectic. I'm in Tysons now which is really heavily traffic and terrible place to work.

"It always took me a long time to count-out the cash register, when I worked retail (computers and PC software store, a Department Store, a sporting goods store (all separate occassions))."

Funny, I have the "Recall" issue which is measured as being pretty severe, but I don't have any issues making change when I'm required to run register at work. After I make a mistake and am confronted about it I can generally learn from it the first time and not repeat it. I'm also at the bottom end of the criteria for being labled LD, and I don't seem to have the struggles that you brighter folks seem to have at your jobs.

This was a procedure for each cashier, at the end of their individual shift.
This is not the same process as counting out change. It is a process of the register, at end of shift. (and also Close of Business Day ).
You misunderstood.

Go with it and focus on what YOU are going to do and do well, not on all the maybes. Of course there are maybes... guess what? You have survived them up to now, right?

[color=green]you go!!!!![/color]

I feel like I've been relieved. I don't have to deal with the mean, nasty Accountant anymore and the HR person. I REALLY hope I stay away from the corporate office, and just work in DC as a contractor. If something does happen, I'm looking into Federal Gov't jobs so that I can stay in DC.

To answer your why question Anna, it's because the relationship between your co-workers. Let me ask you this, at work, do you spend most of your time alone or do you interact with your co-workers?

Your posting sounds very negative. Focus on your strengths rather than your weaknesses. Start building relationships with your co-workers. Interact with them.

Do you ask your co-workers how they are doing? Did you ask your co-workers how their trip is?

You have to get in the conversation.
