I swear this job is trying to kill me.

We'll ignore the long hours, the overprivileged brats, and BIG Big Boss hovering over my shoulder (apparently, since I'm up for a MAJOR raise, he wants to "see what [my] job performance is like."  Well, it's a damn sight better when you aren't right behind me while I'm ringing up customers).  Nope....I was almost taken out by a box of plastic forks falling off a shelf yesterday.

Like I need another head injury.

Jeebus.

I swear, I am so stressed out that all I want to do is binge shop on amazon or fuck like a slightly rabid rabbit.    And Kent's starting to look a little peaked.

I can make it through the next four days.  I can.  Then I finally have two days in a row off.

This check is going to be amazing.  If I survive.

Job is sure not hurting your writing. It feels wrong to enjoy so much how you write about your suffering! You MUST survive!

And a cocktail. And a massage. And a lapdance from Hugh Jackman. ;)

Hope you'll be able to survive the week. I've had some days of insanity at my job.

Oh...don't you haaaaaate when people are looking over your shoulder? It's nerve-wracking, and makes for lots of mis-steps and mistakes! If they (my bosses have pulled that before, too) really want to see your "work performance", they need to watch the security tapes, or whatever.

I hope your check is fab, and that you survive to enjoy the plunder! Also...hahahaha on Kent lookin' peaky. :D

It makes me all twitchy. I'm doomed to make mistakes if you stand over me like that, regardless of what I'm doing.

I am SO looking forward to the big church rummage sale on Saturday. I'm going to dress up cute, take myself out for breakfast (I have been craving Waffle House hash browns with chili for weeks), and go in search of something really cool to decorate the house that will cause Kent to say "Really? Really? Why did you think we needed that?" ;)

When I have days / weeks like that, I just keep thinking about the money. AW

Nothing like a hovering boss to keep things nice and stressful. Ugh.

Those plastic forks are dangerous. A box fell,on my toes at the Republican job and I wore flip flops that day.
