The good, the bad and the genuinely weird

Thursday, October 24, 2013

My ex called me last night to tell me about the meeting about Frank. They're getting him some extra help (including household help), and the goal is to have Frank back home in a couple of weeks. I'm sure he'll be happy to be home, but he'll probably miss the nurses...

There was a snafu involving my ticket for tomorrow night, so I'm not going to be able to see Alton after all! They refunded my money, but I am NOT happy. Well, if he came here once he can come again. But d***, I'm frustrated.

I am going to have to have a word with one of my deskmates. Or maybe not. She's the type of person who wants what she wants three nanoseconds before she tells you she wants it. She's also the type who'll not only lean over you, but right INTO you. Today she wanted something from me. I don't mind helping her with it, but she kept leaning into me as we discussed it -- her knee was right in my hip! She also didn't take her earphones out while we talked (a tad disrespectful, I think), but one kept popping out and hitting my shoulder. However, I may not have to worry. The boss caught her texting at her desk in the middle of the shift and called her out on it. The parting words were, "we'll revisit this tomorrow." Oh boy, am I ever glad I'm not the one in that conversation!

My boss is smoking some meats for me this weekend. I'm sending her a pork roast. I'd planned to also give her some chicken, but then I remembered I have a chunk of brisket in the freezer! Brisket...smoker... do the math!

One more day and then I can relax. My right neck and shoulder are better, but I'm still dead tired.

    A day of mixed emotions to say the least. Have a GREAT weekend with little drama and lots of "you time".

    I'm glad that you heard about what's going on with Frank.

I know you are so disappointed that you won't get to see Alton. I hope that he comes back so you can see him.

    I'm glad to hear that your son will be heading home soon. I'm sure that's a load off your mind.

So sorry to hear about the ticket! I know how much you would have enjoyed it, so I know it has to be a disappointment. Here's hoping that you can see him next time.

Enjoy your weekend! Hope the rest helps.

    So sorry about the ticket snafu! **SIGH**, but it's good you got the $$$ back. Not much of a consolation, I know.

AS for your son, wishing the best. I am sure it is very hard on you.

Ok, that young lady would fall in the category of supremely rude if she invaded your personal space AND had ear plugs in while speaking to you. OMG, I get after my DD about that all the time. She knows for me, whatever she is saying to me or asks of me when she has ear plugs in is intentionally disregarded until she can remove the ear plugs and be respectful!

HUGS and hope it's a decent weekend, despite the disappointment. Sorry!

    Work mates can be stressful I know. But stay positive and having something to look forward to like smoked meat is important! Enjoy Irene
