Get OFFA Me

Tags: , , , ,

What about those people you come across, particularly at work, who try and hold you back so they don’t look bad? Ever felt one of those work place wedgies? Here’s how it goes down…You have a nice skill set for your job. You’re eager to stretch, challenge yourself with additional tasks, projects, and/or responsibilities. But one of your colleagues who has a similar job realizes he/she’s lacking some of the skills you have to take on bigger challenges or simply wants to dig heels in.

I want to choke the shit out…. Get offa me, for goddsakes already. Don’t want to learn a new skill? Don’t. But don’t cry when I getpetite petit wine the next job or the next project or people want me on their team.

Shaving off the sharp edges of my day I’m kissing on a bottle of Michael David’s Petite Petit, a winner of a blend between a Petite Syrah and a Petit Verdot, a medium bodied red — smooth and “jammy black current-like flavors with notes of dry blackberries and vanilla.” I’ve been searching for a good Petite Syrah ever since the very best  ( Ledson Winery’s ) I’ve ever tasted can no longer be had. This from Michael David almost measures up.
