Apparently I need a Warning Sign

My new Boss at work has said at least once a day the past couple weeks that he didn’t expect that from me when I get talking. Okay so were I am in my late 20’s, married female, mother of 1 Baby, and 2 Pups. He is a recently divorced early 60’s, getting married to a younger women, storybook midlife crisis. He must have seen me as a demure reserved female. So not sure where he got that idea from!

Okay sure, I go to work looking clean to nice. Meaning I am almost 90% of the time in khakis or 10% in skirts with nice conservative tops on. My hair is, well its hair and curly at its shoulder length so I try for neat but somedays it is all ponytail. Somedays I even put eyeshadow, mascara, and lipstick on! But usually, all you will see is my pants and black Columbia jacket. Sorry but my work place is an icebox and I get cold sitting all day. However, when I open my mouth and get talking, my roots show 🙂

I was raised in Eastern Oregon so I have slight midwest accent to my words and understand and use  the Country Talk that I grew up around and with. I spent my Teen years in a Navy community though. So while I love to hike and wish I fished more, I can get down and dirty with the Boys. It’s partly while I have so many friends in “The Warehouse”. I can give as good as they can and I have no qualms in showing my backbone and standing on my own. My Warehouse BFF likes me because I am quick study in the “art” of our company. I may not play by the politics but I least can see them and only have to be trained once or twice on the rare things before I am good enough to get by and thrive.

When I finally got fed up with hearing my Boss say that he didn’t expect that from my mouth I told him I was a Navy brat and he noted and said that explains it. He puts up with me though because he’s loving what he’s seeing from my desk. I work with financial numbers all day! I love numbers! But anyways, I need a sign. And the sing should read like this:

Doesn’t take shit and will give it back
Country Girl at heart
Navy Brat

Maybe I should add that to the top of my resume!
