Have you seen the Unstoppable meme? The one with the T-Rex who has discovered the gripper claws, which will now extend his reach, thus making him unstoppable? I love that meme, so much that I have a both a T-shirt and a sweatshirt that have that meme on them.
So, it was particularly funny when it came up in my work evaluation that I am unflappable. In case you didn’t know I am a bookkeeper; which really is a profession that doesn’t have much to get “flapped” about if you ask me.
I guess I could go all nuts when my bank rec doesn’t balance on the first go around, but really why waste the energy. I never met my predecessor but one has to wonder what he was like if I get an unflappable rating. Maybe he stormed out of the office if when his debits didn’t equal his credits, who knows.
It probably helps that I only work part-time, how can you get upset when you only work 2 days a week. Really, no matter how stressful my day was I leave the office on that last day and don’t think about my work until I walk back in the door 4 days later.
Don’t get me wrong I am completely satisfied with the unflappable label. In fact, I think I will try to bring a little bit more of that attitude home. With three kids, two of them twin teen girls, I need all the unflappability I can get; especially when they start driving in a year.
Unflappable just doesn’t look as good on a T-shirt as Unstoppable.
