Employment woes

Sometimes I think I'm too good of an employee.  I know, I know I shouldn't toot my own horn like that, but seriously, I think I'm too good for my own good sometimes.  I was working over at Izod today because the manager over there had a family emergency and one of our "big wigs" from the region came to visit.  The last time he was in town, I was covering over at the Beene because one of the managers over there had a family emergency.  Anyway, so he made a comment about me being such a helper, blah, blah, blah and then when he was walking out of the store with our area manager, I heard him say, "Yeah, she's really a nice person."  When the area manager came back from their tour of the other stores, she told me that he said a bunch of nice things about me.  Which is always good to hear.  At the same time, though, I feel that now I have to work extra hard to keep up my reputation.  It's hard to be me.  

On a slightly different, but totally the same topic, how do you tell someone you work with that the things they do are bugging the hell out of you without making this highly sensitive individual cry?  I don't want to make anyone cry, but at the same time, I can't go through every day doing someone else's job (who happens to be my "boss") just because they lack the confidence to do it on their own.  Like figuring out how to close the safe when there's a paper blocking the latch.  How about moving the paper, smarty?

In good news, though, we get to babysit the Lenman this weekend, which means we'll have to miss book club.  This is unfortunate because this one I actually read and had some comments about, too.  Oh well, we'll just have to make it to the next one.  

I thought there was something else, but I can't remember it now.
