Often people do not even notice how difficult their life is and they literally become sick from stress. The amount of sickness for work is not all the flu, COVID, or even a virus. People tend to internalize their feelings and in so doing are continually ill. My late mother-in-law was always unwell. She even had a stroke in her forties. My father-in-law was a wonderful man but they had their differences. They never agreed about politics which led to numerous arguments. They both worked very hard but my father-in-law was less inclined to be true to all of his marriage vows. Her job required a great deal of input as she was an accountant for a shade and drapery shop. Back then the sales required a fair amount of paperwork. Of course, she wasn’t the only person who had this issue. It is prevalent today in many types of businesses. The paperwork may have changed but the deadlines still exist. Often people bring work home to complete as they simply run out of time at the workplace. This also applies to chefs. They are on a deadline every night in a restaurant. Not to mention that people can be difficult which can make their working hours seem problematic. We all do our best but sometimes the clients, regardless of the type of business, can easily make our lives miserable. If you think Miss Patty and I are exempt from that you are sadly mistaken. People are frequently demanding, believe we should do the work for free, lie as you have read in past blogs, and are often generally rude with occasional threats. There were no characters in the Good Gus series sick from stress. There were difficult times but everyone worked together and it all turned out perfectly in the end. The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones. Hard copies, personally autographed, are available through our website www.goodgusbooks.com along with past blogs for your reading enjoyment. Digitizing for all the books are available now! Books one and two are now available on the Tractor Supply website. “Misplaced Trust” will be available this month.
