really bad day @ 03:36 pm

Current Mood: frustrated frustrated

Today started out okay, but this afternoon has quickly gone downhill. Nothing major, just a metric shitload of stupid little annoyances driving me bonkers. One manager not wanting to turn in the required incentive forms that are due the same effing time every two weeks. Last second vacation requests. Employees not understanding that vacation/sick days and holidays do not stack. I don't care how many days you requested, hours worked plus holiday plus vacation cannot go over 40 total!! And if you asked for a day you couldn't get because you had too many hours, then no, you haven't effing lost it, it's still in your benefit pool for next time, gorramit!

At one point I bopped myself on the head a few times with a thick report folder, on purpose, as small physical pain seemed an improvement. I've got a nagging headache centered on my left eyebrow, definitely not conducive to math or multi-tasking. Been plugging away at yesterday's deposit for 2 1/2 hours now, should've only taken 90 minutes or so on a good day. And no, I don't have your effing charge tips ready to pick up yet, stop asking! I really don't give a shit if you need beer money for the weekend. The more you bug me, the longer it takes!

And somebody's apparently running some massive report that's hogging all the bandwidth, streaming radio's more like dripping. Gah!! Makes me wanna rip my hair out.

God damn it, people, leave me alone!! I need to just sit in a park somewhere with a frappuccino and knit.

I like the new orange color!

Is the new color a bit of self-medication? :-) Hope your weekend goes more smoothly, with time to sleep and to knit. Be well.

It wasn't intended as therapy when I changed it a few days ago, but it probably was just the same. I seem to be surrounding myself with orange these days, just feels right, comforting somehow. Orange makes me happy.

Orange makes me happy too. I'm sorry you had a bad day. I think though, that it was just a bad friday. I woke up sick and alas I cannot take anything for it, then the kids at daycare just weren't getting along, on a friday, that doesnt happen often because friday kids are awesome. was just an all round shit day for a few people i'm afraid.
But, your orange and the knowledge that you too went home and picked up some knitting seems to be a good solution.
Whatcha making ???

Flipping back & forth between a couple of projects. Mittens for the Cheyenne River reservation in South Dakota, the Native American Support group is blitzing them with mass shipments of mittens at the end of September so they'll have them for the winter. And for myself, the "I love gansey" socks from SixSoxKAL. Tiny cris-crossing cables were driving me batty but they stopped at the ankle so the foot's going easier.

Hopefully, you'll be able to kill bunches of things tonight at gaming. :-)

Depends on which game it is. If it's Nils, Simon's a coward and would rather run away; if it's Rickey, Mother Anabelle would rather use spells to control people into doing what she wants them to.
