After a 7 day stretch, today was supposed to be my "chill and regroup" day.

Yeah...no.  Not going into the details, because writing them out would just sending me spiralling further, but...fuck you, Universe.  Fuck you very much.

I will say that work called, and wanted to know why I wasn't there.  "Er, according to my schedule per Evil Corporate Overlords (tm), I'm off today.  BECAUSE I JUST WORKED THE LAST SEVEN DAYS IN A ROW."

"Well, the schedule I'm looking at says you were supposed to be off yesterday."

Oh.  Yesterday as in when I WAS working and you saw me about a dozen times?  Where was your due diligence then?  And which of the six different schedules floating around are YOU looking at?

Oy.

And I could have stood to get off early/not go in yesterday  I had to do an epic grocery shop, and I generally prefer to do that NOT when every soccer mom in the world is in the store.

(Nothing against soccer moms in general.  I was one once.  But I also knew how to drive a fucking grocery cart and not park myself in the middle of an aisle while chatting on my cellphone)

No. I told N I had just gotten laid, was starting to day drink, and not about to get on a bus.

She laughed nervously, because she can never tell if I'm joking or not. ;)

I hear ya re the grocery store "soccer moms" and the "Old Home Week" folks who block aisles chatting away.

Wow! That sucks about them calling you after you worked a week straight! WTF? Jag-offs!

OMG, I HATE anyone who does that! It's not just the soccer moms who do that. There are men and women in the store that I've seen will stand there and ask what it was off the list that they forgot to write down and then, they go over the WHOLE list while they stand there and block the whole aisle.

What else is a pet peeve? The people who just let their kids run WILD and then, you almost hit said children many times throughout the store because the mom is too busy on her cellphone or is just oblivious and thinks of the grocery store as a strange, indoor auditorium for their kids to play in!

Some days, humanity pisses me off, in general. Can you tell?

Or when you almost hit the kid and they glare at YOU. Seriously...not my job to watch YOUR kids.

I know, right? There are so many people out there who really shouldn't be parents, but are. Freakin' scary!
