Okay, So I bet some of you are wondering what CBOLO stands for. It's not anything exciting it just stands for Central Bank Lake of the Ozarks. That's where I work at right now as a teller and it is by far major source of stress in my life. You might laugh and say, "Really working at a bank is stressful?" Yes, it truly is but not because of the job, but because of the people. There are a few choice people who just don't seem to want to work and when they are at work, that causes stress for the rest of us. I decided instead of always getting mad, that I would just bring it to my boss with something happens. Well yesterday, I came in early because my boss asked me to. I needed to work on a project. Well this other girl, we will just call her the "co-worker" has to come in early also. She has a new work scheduale, where she gets off early so she has to come in early. She has the job of running all the bags. The bags are just different deposits that business have dropped off over night. It's pretty much the first thing we do every morning. Well I'm working on my project and she grabs about 4 bags. After she finishes those bags she says really loudly, "Okay well I'm done with my bags." There are still about 5 bags left and I'm still working on the project I had. She then says the same thing again loudly. She says, "I'm going to the bath room, grabs her water cup and leaves. When she comes back she doesn't get the rest of the bags but then continues to do nothing. So now I'm a little frustrated because this is no the first time she has refused to do her job. I decided to talk to my boss about it. After I talked to him about it, he talked to her and the drama begins. Now she walks around and rolls her eyes at me every time she see's me. She acts like you better be afriad of me because i won't take your crap....I have no idea what to do!! I thought a way to cut off the drama would be to end it with my boss but that seems to have created more.

So I need some advice, what should i do? It stinks because I am a people pleaser but I also don't want her to walk all over the other employee's. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!!!

Also this is verse from reading yesterday, I really liked it so I thought I would share. It's Habakkuk 3:17-19

17Though the fig tree does not blossom and there is no fruit on the vines, [though] the product of the olive fails and the fields yield no food, though the flock is cut off from the fold and there are no cattle in the stalls,

18Yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will exult in the [victorious] God of my salvation!

19The Lord God is my Strength, my personal bravery, and my invincible army; He makes my feet like hinds' feet and will make me to walk [not to stand still in terror, but to walk] and make [spiritual] progress upon my high places [of trouble, suffering, or responsibility]! For the Chief Musician; with my stringed instruments.


  1. Well first of all this girl that is causing you trouble thinks she runs things. Don't let her bring you down. Hold your head high and make her question the way she views you because you have something she doesn't. You are a much harder worker than she is.

  2. thanks!! I'm going to be super nice to her and if she keeps acting crazy i am probably just going to talk to her. I don't think she is expecting me to stand up for myself.
