I am not a nice person

Yesterday was...a day.  Not going into too many details, but I got bit at work (and the geriatric vampire drew blood!  I'm still trying to figure out why I had to get a tetanus shot after.  Seems like rabies would be more appropriate); my Work Wife got suspended for something that wasn't her fault...and when I tried to leave when the first relief person showed, the med tech got in my face about waiting until five when the next relief person showed up (I was scheduled until three) because her BFF on staff "needs to leave because SHE has a second job, not a sugar daddy like you."

Sugar daddy?  You mean my HUSBAND, the school lunch dude, whom I currently out-earn?  She's lucky she didn't get slapped.  Also, did you miss the part where 3rd shift bounced the minute I walked in the door (as they do) and I was left ALONE for 40 minutes until you showed up?  Let alone my co-irkers on the floor who were 55 minutes and an hour and 24 minutes late (yes, I am tracking this.  I'm that anal).  If I can handle the floor AND breakfast on my own, I'm fairly certain second shift S (a seven year veteran of Happy Acres.  Who hates my guts, for some inexplicable reason) can do it, too.  She just has to deal with snack, which is far less complicated.

I told her to write me up.  Or better yet, try and suspend me and see how far THAT goes, because I am the only one on first shift who shows up on time.

Needless to say, I left irritated beyond belief.  But it was payday.  My check was larger than I'd anticipated.  And the schedule was FINALLY out, so I discovered I have a three day weekend!  (Which is good, because the previous schedule was only through the 30th.  I wasn't going to show up today if it wasn't, so it's good I wasn't scheduled today)  So, after depositing said check, I went to CVS and bought a MASSIVE bottle of chardonnay.

I was heading to the bus stop and noticed that a line of buses were at the stoplight before my stop.  BONUS!  I can go home.  I started hustling with my incredibly large bottle of wine.

And then this young, overly eager man stepped *right in front of me*.  Like, in my personal space in front of me.

"Hi!  I'm with Doctors Without Borders.  Can I talk to you about how you can save MORE lives today?"

(WTF?  Then I realized...oh, yeah...I'm wearing scrubs.  AND CARRYING A HUGE BOTTLE OF WINE.  And walking towards the bus stop with purpose.  This is so not the time to get in my way)

I may or may not have growled "How about this?  Step aside so I can make that bus, and the life YOU save will be your own."

He turned a little pale and hustled off.  And I made my bus.

I'm waiting for the phone call from work this morning.  With Work Wife on suspension and me being off, that means third shift will be cooling their heels for a minimum of half an hour past when they're supposed to leave, probably more.  I feel bad for them.  But I DARE management to try and call me in.  I'm reviewing my arsenal of ways to say "oh, HELL no" just in case.  I am going to enjoy the FUCK out of my three days off.  Grocery getting today (I know.  I actually enjoy it.  I'm a weirdo.  And it's double coupons up to $2, so I am going to buy ALL THE THINGS!  Yes, I hoard nonperishables, and y'all are going to be glad to know me when the inevitable zombie apocalypse happens).  Hot date with my sweetie Saturday (we're finally going to see Thor: Ragnarock!), then the local Holiday Craft Bazaar on Sunday.  I never get to go, and it falls on Granma's birthday this year (she would have been 90 this year!).  She LOVED Christmas and decorated in the way only a Polish born girl who did her growing up in working poor West Virginia could.  It seems fitting that I would go and do something that she would have loved on the day.  <3

So, y'all....any plans, big or small, for the weekend?

Let's see, making bread, sawing up limbs for firewood, and maybe decorating a way too large tree outside with sparkly plastic balls for christmas.

if someone stepped in front of me as i was rushing toward a bus i'd have nothing but curse words for them. making someone miss their bus is cruel and unusual punishment.

good for you for standing up to the work wench trying to make you stay late so her friend can leave. fuck that.

This is inspirational.

:( at the person who said sugar daddy.

One of Jason's friends got asked if he was using "his child support money" on an item he was buying himself because he's African-American. His parents are very happily married, and it was really crass for the person to say what they did within earshot of this kid (he's around Jason's age).
