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...
