Dream of: 20 February 1994 (3) "Negligent Worker"
I was talking with Cathy, whom I hadn't seen in a long time. We were sitting together at the Summerdale Drive House; she told me she had a job which wasn't far away, somewhere behind Tom Thumb's grocery store. She was working for an auto repair shop, a shop which only made minor repairs to automobiles. She began complaining about some letters which her boss required her to send to clients. The letters gave the clients information about what work had been done on their cars.
I told her that in my opinion, her boss had hired her to put in a certain number of hours, and during that time she must do any reasonable work which he asked her to do. Finally she told me that she should have sent out a letter to some people because a certain repair was supposed to be done on their cars every year. However she had been negligent and hadn't sent out the letters. She had even somehow managed to destroy the files of the people who were supposed to receive the letters, and now therefore, didn't know where to send the letters. She didn't know what to do now. I told her she should first admit to her boss what had happened. The worst that could happen was that she would be fired and have to get another job. But since she didn't like the job to begin with, being fired didn't seem like such a terrible outcome. I reiterated that she should explain what had happened; but she didn't seem to want to accept her responsibility.
This was just the kind of thing Cathy used to do when she had worked for me. I had concluded that she wasn't a very good worker. At the same time, I thought she had more potential than to just work in some small shop. She could have done much more with her life if she had wanted to.
At the same time, I was thinking that since Cathy just worked around the corner, I might invite her over for lunch someday. Who knew, it might lead to some kind of physical relationship. If Carolina weren't around, Cathy and I might be able to have a little affair.
