Miss Independence

My mother will tell you I've been independent since I was 18 months old and the first words out of my mouth were "Me Do It!!!"  My husband will tell you I'm stubborn and rarely ask for help.  I do not deny any of this.  I am very independent.  I rarely, if ever, ask for assistance.  Ask me to do something and consider it done.  Do not check up on me.  I will let you know when the job is complete and I will give you all the necessary details in written format so you have it for your records.  And don't hover.  Don't stand over me while I'm doing said task and listen in on my conversations relating to aforementioned task.  And don't make wild hand gestures while I'm on the phone.  You're less than 5 feet from me.  I can see you.  I am clearly ignoring you and your antics.  Most importantly, don't make me do duplicate work.  If you have already done a portion of the work, please share.  Don't ask me to call someone or do a task and then I hear you in your office making the same phone call.  Drives me insane.  Please let me do the job I was hired to do.

Rant over.  Thank you.
