I am smarter than people give me credit for. I wouldn't say I'm incredibly smart, I just pay attention and remember things. Yet people tend to treat me like I'm incredibly young and just plain stupid. It has been this way since kindergarten when I asked the teacher why I had to be there when I knew my letters and numbers already. She yelled at me to sit down and shut up. This lead to me being bored and ignored from kindergarten through high school so when I got to college I had no idea how to study - because I never had to.
Yesterday I asked my boss if we should let everyone in our department know about a significant change that was happening and she yelled at me that it was for her to deal with and she will ask people questions and that I just needed to stay out of it. Today the exact person I expected to ask her the exact question I knew she would be asked came up to her and asked her what she was supposed to do with it. Of course, since my boss hadn't done anything about it or asked anyone about it or even though about it, she had no answer - just 'well', 'uh', 'I don't know'. I had to get up and leave my desk because I couldn't keep myself from laughing. If she had taken me seriously and just listened to what I said, she wouldn't have been backed into a corner and looked a little stupid.
Of course, later today she still treated me like I was stupid. Really, do I have 'idiotic moron' tattooed on my face with invisible ink? Putting me down and laughing while you criticise me doesn't make you a better boss - it makes you look like an incompetent fool.

I saw this and had to share. Some people can eat anything, but upon reading the comments, it sounds like he only at the Big Macs, no fries or soda. Moderation maybe, but it doesn't mean it is a balanced diet. Another thing to remember is that the Big Mac has been getting smaller over the years.
Whether he appears healthy or not, I still have to wonder how his body didn't develop an allergic reaction to anything within the burger. The more you're exposed to the exact same thing over and over again daily for years, the greater chance of developing an allergy to it. Or, perhaps, did he develop an internal allergy to it, causing his body to not process it properly and instead just release it without digesting it? Could explain how someone who eats 2 Big Macs a day for most of his life isn't gaining weight by it.

Plumber came out very early this morning - he was here at 8am. For me, on a Sat, that's just too stinking early! But whatever, my sink needed to be fixed. It took about an hour and he had to replace several of the pipes under my sink. About $200 later, my sink is fixed. It wasn't a tough job, but I couldn't have done it myself. So I have to accept the $200 and move on. But the fact that I'm a single female who had a plumber come to my house and he didn't try to massively overcharge me or come up with lots of other things to do for me, I think I found a decent company to work with. Yet, forgive me if I'm not in a hurry to see them again soon. It sucks that the previous owner was playing at plumbing, screwed it up seriously, and made me have to shell out money to fix his obvious shortcomings. But again, nothing I can do about it so whatever.

I was washing up some dishes and felt water dripping on my bare toes. Nothing was dripping over the edge of the sink so I opened up the cupboard under the sink to find water pouring out of the pipes under the sink. Whoever installed the garbage disposal was an idiot. They never attached the pipes to the disposal output! They pushed it on and expected it to just stay there! Years of the disposal running cause it to not only come loose, but to weaken the rest of the pvc pipes.
So now I have to get a plumber out here to replace the pipes. I really shouldn't be taking off work (I've been putting in around 2 hours of overtime a week for the last 6 weeks, so how could I have time to take off?) but unless I'm going to pay for an emergency call, what else can I do?
People don't believe that I have an unending string of crappy things happen to me over and over again my entire life. Not until they actually know me and pay attention do they realize I wasn't kidding and if they had to deal with what I do, they would never handle it (especially since I tend to face the world alone because people don't want to be around me for more than a few months or years). My therapist (which people who don't know me keep telling me I should see, as if that would change anything) is at a complete loss as to how to help me, as I can't even handle one thing before two, three, or four more things come along and knock me out. Every time I see her I have some new crappy as heck thing to tell her and she is wearing thin from it. But after seeing her for just a few months she figured out that I was serious about never being able to catch a breath.
So right now I'm strugging to pay medical bills, my car is in desperate need of being replaced, and now I have to pay for a plumber. Forget having any savings, at this point I can barely keep up with the necessary bills! Of course, since I'm single with no kids and a job, no matter how bad my health and no matter how bad my struggles, I have yet to find any help out there. I can't even find a guy to date to even get something as simple as a hug when I need it.
