Bad First Impression
So I moved to a new barn and I met a really nice girl named Chrissy. She helped me out a lot on my first day. There are two barns and Chrissy, myself, and this other lady Renee are the only people that own horses that are in the second barn. I was filling up Blue's bucket and I made SURE I turned the water off and drained it before I left. The barn manager comes in every morning and gives the horses water and hay. There is a water hose in the middle of the barn and one at the back of the barn where the wash stalls are. I used the one by the wash stall because Blue's barn is in the very back next to the hose. I walked into the barn this morning and there was a note that said "Marissa, Make sure you turn off the water and drain the hose before you leave. It will cost you a LOT of money if they freeze." Sure I didn't pay much thought to it and Chrissy said that someone left the water hose on. I wrote back "I made sure I turned the hose off and it was drained." and something else about my horse not being out in bad weather. So Renee walked into the barn, I've never talked to her before because he just got to the barn Sunday night. She came up to me and said "by the way that hose was on this morning and it will flood the barn its happened before" it wasn't even the hose I used. I tried telling her but she stormed out of the barn. I talked to Chrissy and she said that a lot of people switch to the main barn because of her. She's very hard to get a long with. If I can't get to the barn I have to rely on her to feed Blue for me. I don't want to make a bad impression so how can I try to turn her impression of me around? I really do not want any drama in the barn, I've took all I can take of people at barns pushing me around. What can I say to her to attempt to get on her good side?
Life is about doing something you love and never giving up.
