|Echo, Echo, Echo...|
Every once in a while the shit in my head piles up thick and I need to dump it somewhere. I usually try to make it funny as it easier to deal with on a laughable level, but there are those inevitable moments like right now; where I cannot find the humor in anything.
|Another shit night at work...|
I haven't written a blog in almost a year as I have a life-sucking, back breaking, knee quaking, soul less night shift job doing menial labor and getting alarmingly underpaid for the abuse.
|There is no such thing as too many bubbles...|
I can't tell you how many times I have come home so physically beat up that I just lay in a scalding hot tub full of Epsom salts and sob.
It's truly the perfect job for me; I have three herniated discs and two severely arthritic knees, so spending hours on end lifting heavy objects and being on my knees is ultimate for my current condition. My doctor is. So. Proud.
|Like Captain Picard; I am a master of this technique.|
But seriously, let's get back to the non-humor here for a minute. One of my co-workers has been giving me grief lately because my hours haven't been as cut back as his and he is crying that it's unfair.
Normally, I would smile and nod (my standard response to most situations/conversations with the insane), but this isn't the first time he has brought it up, and I was weakened by my lack of sleep and played into the insanity.
Me: "We all got extra hours last week, if you answered your phone you could have worked too."
*Gegg: "Well I had that kidney infection so, I couldn't work".
*actual name has been changed to protect the not so innocent.
This guy always has an excuse, and always mouths off about how he isn't going to answer his phone if they call, cause he doesn't want to work, yet he constantly bitches that his hours have been cut. Not to mention the fact that he works slower than the speed of sloth.
I. Bust. My. Ass. at this job. It's quite possibly the worst job I have ever had. But I go above and beyond; why? I. Don't. Know.
I do know that when I work a shift on zero sleep and have other things piled up deep inside my crazy head, that I can't tolerate getting crap from someone that is LAZY.
The saddest part about all of this is; that I am looking forward to having double knee replacement surgery so that I don't have to work there anymore. Who the fuck in their right mind looks forward to surgery?
I should have a lobotomy while I'm anesthetized.
P.S. I have missed you all terribly and will try and make this blog a regular thing again. xoxoxo
