I have been having some seriously challenging work days lately. Not to mention the fact that I think my kids are starting to forget that they even have a Mom… “Mommy, are you working late again?”
Anyway… I decided to think of something about work that makes me smile… something good about this place… (and there is a lot of good – some days it might not seem like it, but there is) One of the things that amuses me about this hotel are all the nicknames. It took me months to figure out who people were talking about when I heard them use these names… and they all say them with such a straight face – like they’re so normal…
Here they are:
- “Hollywood” (because his real name is the same as a movie director… he doesn’t work here anymore – and is part of the reason I made sure my panic button was installed, but nevertheless…)
- “Buddy Love”
- “Huggie Bear”
The only nickname that I’ve been given (to my face) is “Cadillac Whip” or just “Whip” (that’s what one of my colleagues calls me – kinda funny…although, I have a feeling there are others around who may have nicknames for me that they use behind my back).
