Students are breakfasted, bell rings, they begin their morning routines. Chat with them about their weekend, listen and offer advice.


Coworker Stress arrives, early, as usual, going on about something they wish they could change.

I begin to take over some aspect of the day that she usually does. She gives me dirty looks. Hey, she's gonna be leaving, I have to do this when she goes. She doesn't like that I take control.


I ask for her advice on something. That seems to appease her. She also placates herself by getting a student to laugh and enjoy her attention. Whatever.
