Yesterday I was stoked to go to the temple with my hubby. It was stake temple night and we hadn't been for a while. I spent the day getting all my stuff done before we had to go.
We got dressed and left. We got there. I needed help.
I don't need to go into detail, but if you happen to work at the temple could you PLEASE be nice. Smile once in a while. Pretend you like to be there for the hours you are there. And fake that you like the job that you have been assigned. The lady I asked for help was rude, inconsiderate, and ornery.
Don't tell me you can't "leave your post" because I don't care. (been a temple worker) You are NOT in the military and the temple President won't flog you for asking one of the four ladies around the corner to help me if you don't want to. (I didn't see these women until it was too late or I would have asked them)
If you have been frequenting my blog you know already that I have a very hard time with people in the church. This situation did/does not help. I've NEVER been in the temple and wanted to scream and yell so bad. (mind you I've never been to the temple when I don't encounter at least one pissy worker-ALWAYS female, by the way)
I went up to the Sealing Office to meet my hubby and just sat in the hall and cried. I was so mad. All I wanted was a few moments of "Good Churchy Experience." Is it really too much to ask for?
When I finally calmed down, we did go do some work. It was good. The sealer was really nice and relaxed. (all the male workers in the temple I've ever encountered have been wonderful) So after a couple of hours, I felt better. Not wonderful, but better.
MY POINT: if you work in the temple, can you please smile and be nice. PLEASE. You just might run into a completely ornery pregnant woman who doesn't like church at the moment. It would be nice to be one of the few positive things in her life that are associated with church. Please try.
