Well I didn't really blog this morning and I didn't do so last night either so I thought that I would write tonight and tell you all about my oh so interesting day yesterday! I always say that I never know what I'm walking into at work.. could be a slow day, could be a busy day and you really never know who you are going to meet. I have definitely encountered some odd characters who come out with the most ass backward remarks but yesterday really took the cake on crazy!
Usually Deanna is at this office on Monday, Tuesday (my day off) and Thursday! She stopped working Friday's awhile ago although when they were on vacation I was in touch with the owner quite a bit and we were talking about when they were coming back and he said they might be in the office on Friday and I said, "Oh OK, well Tom but Deanna doesn't work Fridays" I guess he didn't know that she was taking Friday's off and getting paid for it.. haha.. so shes been working Fridays!! OOPS!
Anyways so yesterday she decided that she was going to go to Town Square again because theres been some things going on there and I think she is trying to be helpful and is also keeping an eye on things! Usually I'm all about having a day to myself but yesterday I have never wished more that she was there.
The day was quiet and I hadn't really seen anyone and really didn't have many phone calls at all. So I was sitting at my desk and in case I have never mentioned this before my office is actually in one of the units, its set up as a model home so people can see the actual layout.. our office is set up in the second bedroom but instead of having a big window its a sliding glass door, so when someone comes up the stairs we are exactly what they see! So I was sitting there yesterday and I see this woman out in the parking lot in front of the office and she was having some sort of psychotic break.. She was freaking the fuck out for lack of better words! So I jumped up and locked the doors and then went in the other room so she couldn't see me! Well she came up the stairs and was banging on the doors, and ringing the door bell, screaming at the top of her lungs! I was terrified! I knew she wasn't a resident and that something was very wrong.. I kind of peaked around the corner and she was missing teeth and the rest were protruding from her face, she looked wild eyed.. I don't even know.. she eventually left.
After that I closed the blinds so you cant see in the sliding glass doors which I do everyday at lunch and then I got a phone call from Creekside, thinking it was Tom I answered and IT WAS HER! She was in that building and was calling the office from the intercom and those calls are automatically routed to our office! So she asked was the office open she needed to fax something.. I finally got that after A TON of rambling.. I honestly couldn't understand her she was talking a mile a minute! I told her the office was closed for lunch and then I guess she was gone.
So I was just sitting down to have lunch and all the sudden I hear someone come up the stairs and start banging on the door and trying to get in, she was yelling again and trying to force her way in and I don't know why but I was so scared. I guess I couldn't tell what was wrong with her and she was being so forceful and so I called Clayton and told him what was going on and that I was really scared could he please come down, so he did and by the time he got there she was gone. While all the commotion was going on Tom had called and left me a message, so I called him back and told him what was going on and he said he would be right down. I guess he left his office and drove around the neighbourhood and then came to the office and said he couldn't see anyone but he would hang out for awhile. He hung out for about two hours and was very pleasant, and I greatly appreciated him taking my concerns seriously and being there.
After a couple of hours Tom left and about 20 minutes later Mike showed up, he wasn't working yesterday because his son was getting out of jail but he had his grand daughter and wanted me to meet her. He stopped by and we were standing outside the office because he grand daughter was playing around and I was telling him about this crazy woman and who shows up.. HER! I couldn't believe it, I was so thankful he was there though! We were standing on the stairs and she tried to get past us and I asked her if she was going to the office and she said yes and I asked her what she was looking for and she said she needed to fax something, she seemed a lot more calm but I wouldn't fax something for her, I didn't want her to think she could come back all the time.
I guess I feel bad that I might have over reacted and she is probably harmless but I was scared, she was banging on the doors and trying to get in, the fact that everything was closed and locked up seemed to mean nothing to her! Needless to say I kept the door locked for the rest of the day.
Deanna was in to work today which I was pretty grateful for, we spent the morning unwinding the mess of Yarn I had... literally 2 hours of untangling a ball of yarn! haha made the morning go by a lot faster to be honest! Overall it was a really quiet day today, tomorrow I have a few things on the go but I anticipate the same thing. Jason is working tomorrow as well, first Saturday work on this job which is great! Its suppose to rain on Sunday so I don't know what we will do now!
Anyways I thought I would share my story with you.. we went to the gym tonight and the grocery store and now I'm heading to the shower before bed!
I hope everyone has a great weekend!!! I'm SUPER JEALOUS of mom, Fiona and Jen going to St. Jacobs tomorrow!!! Hope you guys have a great time!
