It's a Brand New Year

I so enjoyed being off from the loony bin in which I work last week. As the hours wore on yesterday, I felt myself growing anxious and apprehensive and pre-stressed. Is there such a thing as pre-stressed? I say there is, and I know you know what I mean.

I always say that nothing that happens there can surprise me, but that's not true. I've been shockingly surprised more than once. Lord only knows what surprises might be in store today. Maybe our Christmas party that never happened? Skank Girl said Boss Lady said we'd have it after the "Christmas break," but I'd be surprised if it happens.

Did I tell you what Boss Lady gave us (her employees) for Christmas? Nothing! Not even so much as a card or a 10-cent candy cane. SG said it was because BL had been complaining about not having enough money and that our "Christmas break" was present enough, never mind that there has always been a Christmas break, plus gifts and bonuses. And never mind that the poor penniless woman spent over $800 gifting court personnel she never even deals with, or insisted on boutique chocolates for the mailman whose name she doesn't even know, or that she went to the coast for part of the week and had SG book her a 2-room suite with a bay view.

So, I have no idea what to expect today. I am just sorely disappointed that I was unable to locate a better job last week. It seems like the only jobs available are in the restaurant and medical fields, and I can do neither. Maybe this week. Or next...

Maybe we can open our own psychic detective agency. (I get some of my best ideas from TV.)

Betting on some kind of "gift" from BL and a party this week.... but I've been wrong before.

I'll do it, Pugsley, but I hope you're prepared for pauperdom. My psychic abilities are clearly lacking.:-)

We'll see, Quid. Doesn't matter to me one way or the other, but it would be good for a laugh if it does happen.:-)

SJ, I could write a book on tightwad ass attorney's and their crazy excuses for not giving Christmas bonuses! (Wanna collaborate?) One year I got a package of padded coathangers. (Huh??) Another I got $100. That bought a LOT of Christmas gifts! And the funny part was they usually gave the 'gifts' the day before the holiday, so even if you did get money, it was too late to spend it!! I'm waiting with baited breath to see what happens today!! Good luck!!!! Love & Blessings!!!

Hey kiddo!
I know the holiday season has passed and it looks as if you have survived the worst of it...
Just dropping by to wish you a happy and healthy New Year.
Cheers!

NYD isn't dead...he just smells funny...

Good God, Marion, coathangers?! I'd have been tempted to beat the guy with them. Not a thing happened today and, by the looks of the calendar, won't all week. I'm not surprised at all.:)

Serena said...

Hey, stranger! How goes it in Lilliput? I'm so relieved to hear you're not dead that I can put up with a little earthy aroma. Happy New Year, NYD!;)

Heck, Serena, all ya gotta do is find those made-up CONgressional districts that Barry's idjits claims jobs were created/saved in with stimulus money ;)

Serena said...

Where do I find one of them idjit jobs, Skunk? Or better yet, where's the line to get some of that stimulus money?:)
