Work Issue


So, yesterday I was at work in a 15 month old to 2 years classroom and after breakfast time, the other teacher was cleaning the floor with a wet mop. I slipped and fell and sprained my thumb. I didn't report the accident until 3:30 PM. I filled out an incident report and then went on a wild goose chase going to get my thumb looked at. Through out the entire time I was texting my supervisor letting her know what was happening. Today I called off work due to the whole ordeal and was texting my boss about getting my eyes checked today as a condition for going back to work because my current glasses are all scratched up. I was so freaked out about the ordeal yesterday that I just kept texting her about everything that I had to do and what I felt about the whole fiasco related to the fall. Thankfully, the doctor said that my right eye is stable and my left eye has greatly improved since I saw her last. I automatically attributed the fall to my clumsiness and my vision issue (needing new glasses) , but now that I think about it, the floor was wet, I slipped and fell. The other teacher wasn't even supposed to be using a wet mop in the classroom when children were present. Accident aside, I have a serious issue texting my boss a novel when something is upsetting me. This has happened in other places too. However, in person I just say hi and leave it at that. We shall see what tomorrow brings. I hope that I don't get reprimanded or anything.

Aren't our minds such wonderful tools? Here your mind conjured up all of these possibilities. And then, when you thought about it, it was a simple matter of slipping on a wet floor. I think that you have a writers mind.

True that, Krazie! lol :-)

Update : I went to work today and around 11:00AM when I was in an infant room I threw up on myself. It went all over my jeans, shirt, and carpet in the classroom. How embarrassing... This has not been my week at all. I asked if I could go home and change my clothes and was told to go home and that they would see me on Monday. When I got home I took a shower right away.

Also, I didn't see either of the two teachers in the classroom where the falling incident happened. I hope that they weren't fired.

Yipes! Caught a bug or two, did you? Or was it nervousness? Sounds as if you have nice supervisors. Now you have nearly three days to regroup.

Yeah... There has been a lot of sicknesses going around the preschool where I work. They are the best supervisors that I have had so far job wise. Thanks for your messages, Krazie. :-)
