The Leave-Me-Alone-I-Want-To-Forget-About-Work Winner post

Hey Everyone!

The holidays are approaching but sadly I’m not saying this because I feel the Christmas spirit due to holiday songs being played everywhere or smelling mulled wine on the street, no sadly I say that because all our clients have gone crazy and realized that the year is almost over and they want to finalize things before 2012 rolls around. Meaning that this past week I didn’t get home before 9-10 pm. Every.single.night. I could hurt these people with my Death Glare; why don’t they realize that people (=that is I) need and want to get in the holiday spirit by relaxing and spending time on more agreeable matters?! Grr. So another weekend I had to work, and I so cannot wait for the holidays to roll around and go on vacation. I want some breathing time please!

But I’ll take a deep breath and let you know who won this week (don’t forget to enter the remaining giveaways there will be tons of giveaways ending next week, you’d better not miss out on them):

This week congratulations are in order for…

    December used to be a crazy month at work for me too, and we are not permitted to take a day of. But that is a thing of the past due to the economical crises. So, hang in there, and don’t forget to take a break every now and then!

    Congrats to the winners!

    Sounds like you’ve had a tough week! I have to admit I often think work would be much easier if I didn’t have to deal with clients!! 🙂

    congratulations to the winners.

    I understand you, clients can’t be very mean….my mother has a specialised shop ( colloection things, stamps, etc etc) so sometimes it takes 2 or more hours just for a stamps at less than 1euro…
    the worse is that the clienst now want everything immediately and its’ not always possible , they x-want something very rae for the evening or the next day…we need to have time to look a bit…
    ( fortunately not all are like that but still…we don’t have our tree up, i’m obligated to stay at home because i’m hurt and i can’t walk so…not in the holidays spirit either)
