The day started well enough. I did some Zumba. I jogged with my doggie.
Then I discovered that the gardener cut my fairy lights. Again.
Okay. I'll order a new set. For the third time, I will order a set of fairy lights.
I sure love those fairy lights.
Then during my first break I couldn't get my workout dvd to work. So, I didn't workout.
Fine. Fine. I will have plenty of other opportunities to exercise during the day.
Then before lunch, I spoke to q very special person who figured he would add to his Karma by taking active steps to get me fired. Okay. Great. That's a good feeling. I love that crazy freaking hostile people with no sense are constantly telling me that I need to be fired.
Now, excuse me, but how freaking soulless do you have to be to try and get someone fired? In this economy? Really, think about it. What sort of harm could I have done to this individual to justify them depriving me of my livelihood and what little material security I have?
Did I drown their baby?
My crime, if you must know, was pointing out that I told them that what I was doing was going to take a few minutes.
Shame on ME! With all due respect, SCREW IT.
So by lunch, I didn't really feel like working out. So I decided to watch a documentary on happiness by Deepak Chopra. He's so cute. He had red rhinestone rims for his eyeglasses.
I was all set to look for some happiness when my son started to call me. He needed STUFF. So I spent about an hour arranging the STUFF and didn't get to watch the DVD on happiness.
Or meditate. Forget inner peace.
Back to work.
Despite the fact that that a-hole was trying to get me fired, I decided to put it behind me and do the best I could the rest of the day.
I had an hour long call with my supervisor where I learned about my areas of improvement but during which I was not fired. Thanks.
Then I got the last call of the day. This was an extra specially special woman who believed that everything she wanted would happen for her without her going to any effort. I kid you not. I wish I could go into detail so you could completely understand that this woman was literally totally unable and enraged by the idea that she may have to go to any effort at all to get what she wants, but I can't.
Let's just say that a good analogy for her thought process would be someone who goes to Walmart, buys a coffee pot, brings it home, and puts the box on their kitchen counter-top. Then they get a coffee cup out of the cupboard and they wait for their coffee to brew. After waiting for a period of time, they become frustrated. Where is the coffee? What could of gone wrong? The salesperson promised that they wouldn't have to do anything to get it working. Have they been LIED to.
So this hypothetical person calls the manufacturer of their coffee maker and proceeds to get irate because the coffee maker hasn't yet produced any coffee. The person on the phone tries to explain that the woman might need to plug in the coffeemaker and YES take it out of the box before the coffeemaker will work but this just enrages the woman further. She tells the person on the phone that they aren't any good. She says this several times, 'You aren't any good. Can I speak to someone else?'
So.... that was my last moment at work for the day. My last moment at work for today consisted of someone telling me repeatedly that I wasn't any good.
Now I am drunk. I have also had brownies and taquitos. I had some reeses peanut butter cups as well.
What a mess.
I know I should not are what people think. I know that I should be bigger than this. I know that in the end, if I get fired, it is just something that has happened and really has nothing to say about my worth as a person.
But I also know that my life won't work without my job.
So tonight I am drunk and numb with carbs and sugar. I am also watching Lewis Black, the angriest man on the planet instead of Deepak Chopra.
.....and that is just where I am, right now.
