I’m So Thankful Today Is Over

I’m having a really hard time being a Christ-like person today. It just seems like people keep doing things that tick me off. A friend of mine decided he wanted me to take all pictures of him off my Facebook page and was acting all like he had no clue they were there until today, which isn’t true because he commented on them two months ago when I posted them. So, that irritated me and we ended up going around in circles because he said I didn’t have his permission to post them and I wanted to know why he was making such a big deal out of it now when he was okay with it two months ago. I think it’s because he met a girl and didn’t want her to see pictures of him with another girl. He said it’s because he doesn’t want unflattering pictures of him posted, which prompted me to call him a whiny diva. lol. I was soooooooo not in a Christ-like mood today. But I guess it’s okay because he retaliated by calling me dysfunctional. I guess that fits today because I had a REALLY dysfunctional day.

This guy at work told me that if x=y, to do z. So, today, x=y and I did z. Well, he decided he didn’t like that and went to the boss, which ended up in her sending me an email and telling me to undo z and seem all confused as to why I did z. I told her why I did z and got a rather rude email from the guy, which I responded to and told him he that the rudeness was unnecessary. Those of you who actually know me are probably quite surprised because I don’t normally stand up for myself. Well, I made to commitment that I don’t deserve to be treated the way people like this guy treat me, so I’m going to let them know that acting like that is not okay. Well, my boss came over to talk to me and that turned into a big mess where we were both frustrated because I held me ground and wouldn’t let it turn into me having done something wrong. I did what I was told to do, end of story. If the guy didn’t want me doing that, all he had to do was tell me, not get the boss involved. It really irritates me when people feel the need to make other people look bad because they can’t do their own jobs right.

But, that’s enough of that. Let’s suffice it to say that I had many unkind thoughts rolling around in my head about some people. Part of me is fairly certain I’m going to be fired for it. I mean, you don’t mess with this guy if you want to keep your job. I know that. Everyone at the office knows that. But, I’m tired of him treating me like crap, talking to me like I’m an idiot, acting like I’m incompetent and being a general jerk to the entire population of our office. I don’t abide attitudes like his very well. I just don’t. If you’re going to be an arrogant jerk, go lock yourself in a closet. Don’t be like that to me. I may take it for a little while, but I won’t take it forever. I reached my breaking point with this guy over a year ago.

When I got home, I was still irritated with the guy at work. I walked inside my apartment to find that the maintenance guys had painted over the water damage in my apartment instead of fixing it, so I took my rent check over and asked if the guys were done. They said yes. I said, “Uh, no, they’re not.” Then I got into a conversation with the maintenance guy and he said that’s all he needed to do and I told him he needed to come back in and fix it like he fixed the water damage in my  bedroom. I actually wasn’t really rude to him. He was really nice and seemed a little slow, so I cut him some slack. It’s hard to be irritated with someone who seems really nice and acts like he’s trying to understand what you’re talking about. I still don’t think he understood what I was talking about, though. lol. I ran after him after I paid my rent and told him I was sorry if I was being snotty and he said I hadn’t been rude at all, which made me feel  better. We talked a minute more about what he was going to do to fix the water damage and I still think he was getting this repair mixed up with the cracked wall on the other side of my apartment. Yes, I live in a ghetto apartment. lol. The crack, all he did was paint over it, but I’m not going to fight with them on that. He told me (once we were out of ear shot of management) that they had told him to just paint over both damaged pieces and that when he comes back over here tomorrow, he’ll do it right. So now I have no idea who to believe because the office lady said he’d told her there wasn’t much he could do aside from paint over it. But, whatever. As long as he fixes this tomorrow and then paints over it on Wednesday, I’ll be fine. I just want to put my living room back together and get all the blankets and towels off my furniture. I feel like I live in a house that’s been closed up for the winter.

So, yeah, that’s been my day. Oh, and when I tried opening my can of spaghetti and meatballs (my body wants junk food right now, not the chicken I’d been starting to prepare), it fell on the floor and made a mess. That was lovely. I texted my neighbor and told him about my food. We’d been outside earlier talking about my retarded day, so he knew it had just been a rough day. He came over, which surprised me because he doesn’t normally do that anymore. He’d tried texting and calling and said he came over to be sure I hadn’t jumped off the balcony. That made me laugh. Then he gave me a hug and I started bawling. This has just been a stupid day. I’m so glad it’s over. I really don’t want to go back to work tomorrow. Maybe I should just look for a new job. *sigh* But every time I do, it just doesn’t feel right yet. Oh well. The time will come. I’m going to go watch some Terra Nova and see if I can scrounge up some ice cream. I had planned on going to FHE tonight, but decided not to go once I started bawling. I think I just need to stay home and de-stress. I even skipped the gym today because I was so upset. lol.

I hope everyone has peaceful and happy evenings.

    AWWWWWWW i don’t like stories like this
    I want happy endings for you Ms! What an awful day!

    Change…

    Today’s the day I take charge,
    The day that I make the decisions,
    Or so I tell myself.
    Everyday I think the same thing,
    Not once has it happened,
    Until today.
    I was determined to change,
    I miss the old me,
    Everyone does.
    How can I blame them?
    They were right,
    Only you make your destiny,
    I am me!
    And that’s how I like it.

    Lil Poem for thee

    You are you, And you’re pretty awesome!
