Traffic this morning was super f*cked. Absolutely hideous. So I decided to try and bail off the highway and go a different way, but every way I tried to go was hideous as well. For all I know, my circuitous non-highway route was even slower than if I’d just staying in the gridlock. It took me a full hour and a half to get to work this morning. Almost two hours if you start counting when I left the house to take DD to daycare.

EFF YOU, MONDAY. RIGHT IN YOUR BUM.

Ugh! You just reminded me of when I started my first full time job. It was my first week, I was 21 and didn’t know how to process something that a customer was asking for. I asked a colleague (45 year old man who had worked there years) for help and he told me what to do, even doing half of it for me. Which is great, except it turns out he processed it wrong so the company then owed money to another firm. The manager came out to have a go at me for doing it wrong and this man was stood right next to me and didn’t say a word! He watched her yell at me. I was 21 and he was 45 and I was new and it was his fault! Then my manager left and the man said ‘ahh thats annoying, but you’ll get the hang of it’ to me. I was FUMING! but anyways that was a long time ago and I dont work there anymore… You just reminded me and I thought I’d share haha.

In conclusion, people can really suck!

MsGinkgo:  Do you work at my company??? Your boss sounds a LOT like mine… although luckily, as an admin, I don’t have to deal with his mistakes as much. Just him being late to EVERY SINGLE MEETING.

MsGinkgo: After having two weeks off work, the fact I had to get out of bed at an ungodly hour annoyed me at 5.45 this morning.
