Supervise only

Are you an overachiever? Do you like being in the thick of things at work. Pushing the totals higher and higher, as a sort of challenge to yourself and to others. When someone says it isn't possible, do you not only prove them wrong, but do it spectacularly? Well that is how I am. I dislike lazy people at work, and underachievers drive me batty. So today, when the company owner came in, to check on how we were doing on the oil boom orders, I was a little upset when he told me he didn't want me working on the line. I was to supervise only. Ummmmmmmm excuseeeeeeeeeee me? You want me to stand around for 12 hours and do Nothing but babysit 15 people??? OMG. Talk about sheer torture! So now I have to motivate people to work at my speed, without working alongside them. It is extremely frustrating. Today I checked how the other groups were doing on the orders. Yellow days did 209, yellow nights did 219, green nights did 227, and my team, green days, did 261. I guess we aren't doing too badly against the other groups. But we could do even better if people would work more and yap less. I'll see how they do this week, and may the best team win :D

Yeah, I'm the same way...hate to stand around without getting my hands into stuff...especially if I'm "supervising" people that are doing something incorrectly!

Dad always said:
"If you want something doen it yourself".

But to stand and watch?
Not on my list of things to do.

I only watch movies...and sports...and birds...and rabbits on my patio.
