Killing me softly.

Last night? Ginger crapped on the rug.

She just doesn't do that. So it was weird. And it smelled like, well, crap. Which I guess makes sense but still doesn't make it any better.

I couldn't sleep. Jason was snoring really loudly and the dog was wimpering until about 5am when she decided she would just bark loudly. I went and let her out of her crate and she immediately drank every bit of water in her bowl.

At about 6:30am while I was dressing? She peed on the floor.Boy Child decided he would help and went to clean it up.

With Kaboom or Bam or one of those cleaners that Billy Mayes shrieks about on the television while I'm trying to sleep.

On my carpet.
My light beige carpet.

So I'm on my hands and knees with a bucket of water and it's not even 7am. Not even.

No school today because of the elections, so I take the kids to Taekwondo. No one is there.

We drive to the bank so I can deposit two checks. I have the checks, my check card and the envelope in my hand. I go to write out the deposit slip and my checkcard is gone. I drove around got out of the car, dug through the seats, under the seats, in my clevage, everywhere. I can't find it.

I start crying and debate going home.

But I can't, because I have to give training at 10am.

I go back to Taekwondo. It's open.

An hour later, I get to work, open my email and the first one is from my new boss and it, in my opinion, is accusatory.

I go to the bathroom. Cry again.

I get an email informing me that someone else decided they wanted to use the conference room, which I intended to use for my training. Even though I booked it last month, I am booted.

I have to scurry around making other arrangements.

Twenty people come. One of whom marks up the test, tells me how every single thing I did was wrong (I passed out the tests incorrectly even) and then seriously asks me what I've been doing for the last year that I haven't fixed this yet.

Clearly, I've been sitting on my ass eating bon-bons. I mean, clearly.

I went outside, called my friend and cried on the phone.

Called my former boss and cried on the phone.

Went to therapy and cried for like, an hour.

Usually therapy makes me feel better, but today? Not so much.


So. Know anyone who is hiring? Because I need a new job before I tell everyone to kiss my fat bon-bon eating ass, I'm going home.

No shit? They closed schools for Super Tuesday there. Wow. Not so much in the West side of the state.

Did you find your bank card?
"quit your job, get out while you can". This is from one of my favorite movies. Do you know what movie?
Hey lets trade places for a day. I will come and tell your boss to kiss my fat white ass and you can come and do a speech at the D man"s memorial which I am dreading tomorrow.

Wow. They closed school for elections? Really? Wow. Did you find your bank card?

frannie said...

I am so sorry that you had such a sucktacular day... you deserve better. you have to get out of there.

Coal Miner's Granddaughter said...

Wow, hon, just... wow. I'm so very sorry. Jobs are either wonderful places of understanding a idea exchanges or they're just places that legally allow others to suck our souls from our bodies. Seriously.

Get. The. Fuck. Out.

Allie Bear said...

I'm sorry your day sucked and I hope Ginger is okay.

Kimberly said...

I pray every day that The Job (with capitals, even) presents itself to you soon...you know, the one that won't make your life a living Hell. =(

I won't to beat on some people I've never even met. And I'm a -nice- girl, you know? I just want them to stop hurting you.

J said...

Oh man, that so sucks. I am more than willing to come tell your boss to kiss my ass, too. Let's all have a 'Chick's boss can kiss our asses' party!!

Sue said...

Oh, CRAP. Your job is toxic. Gah. I hope you find something else soon. And I'm sorry about your crappy, crappy day.

Jenski said...

I will never understand people who think that by being critical and blaming that people will be motivated and work harder. Sorry that you had a crappy day. Next time a day starts off with Ginger crapping on the rug, call in sick?

SJ said...

Goodness Chick. If I were close by I'd give you a great big hug, and a card.

Suzy said...

The peeing on the floor and drinking all the water was the beginning of my dog's diabetes. If it keeps happening, go see a vet. (It's manageable)

As to your job? People suck.

Alpha Dude 1.5 said...

Uh....I'll just be over here praying for you.

Okay?

Jocelyn said...

Oh, crud, Chick.

I'm a fan of a good cry when it then makes you feel better...but I hate those cries that just keep you down.

Crud.

I'm surprised they closed the schools! We had super Tuesday here also but they didn't close school.

Sorry it was such a shittacular day. I hope you find something fantastic for you soon...or you win the lottery or something so you can rub it in their faces...

BS said...

I sent you an email last night, then realized that you probably had no clue who I was from the email address. Just wanted to let you know.

Just A Girl said...

wow...that sounds like a horrible day. I'll be praying that it gets at least somewhat better.

Amy W said...

Wow. Just wow. You had one hell of a bad day. I wish I could make it better!

MilitaryMom said...

I'm with Coalminers GD, you need to leave that job for the sake of your mental health. Nobody should have to endure that day after day. NOBODY! I'm sorry you're having such a bad day.

Catwoman said...

Hopefully you hear something from one of those resumes you sent really soon. In the meantime, keep sending out resumes.

Because I've been in jobs where I cried all the way home every single day before, and it was one of the worst times of my life.

Anonymous said...

Is Ginger okay?

Jenty said...

Oy! Sounds a bit like my day yesterday!
Hope you find another job soon.

julie said...

Damn, that is super sucky. I hope today is much, much better.

Rachel said...

I bet there are plenty of place in M-town hiring.

Just sayin.

stepmomof2 said...

Wow! Did you find your bank card? I thought I lost mine the other day and nearly had a heart attack. I once had a job that I didn't like very much and instead of quitting I let things get under my skin until I was like a time bomb. One day I just exploded and totally lost it (my sanity) and of course my job. All I'm trying to say is don't let it come to that, you're health and well being are more important than staying at a job you hate just because. Hope things get better for you soon.

CPA Mom said...

Wow, it is just one thing after another for you...I keep coming over hoping to see good news...I'm so sorry for all this SH** going on right now...I'm thinking GREAT things must be just around the corner as you've had your fair share as well as 10 other people's fair share of CR*P. Anything I can do, say the word. I was serious about looking for a job here....

EE said...

I'm so sorry. You definitely need a new job!
I just started Taekwondo and find that it is an incredible way to release tension. I think you would enjoy it!
