Re: &*(_#&*R^#!!!
Let me tell you, there is nothing quite like that feeling that EVERYTHING you do at work is wrong.  When you do something exactly how the president of the company wants it done and then he looks at it several months later and tell you, "You made it worse"

Sleeep, no matter how much I get, I always seem tired. The only difference between 2 hours and 8 is how much I nod off.

You stupid twit.  Two weeks in a row, two completely different grant requests, and you give me 24 hours notice to drop everything to get you numbers.  You've known the grant application dates for quite some time - it's your fruitin' job!

Common courtesy. Really.

Fell asleep studying while sitting in a chair. Woke up slumped over and looking for my glasses. When I got up to look for them, my dictionary slid off my lap and landed right on them. I have a spare, but this is a bummer.

Re: &*(_#&*R^#!!!
That feeling when you truly care about someone who does not feel that way about you, no matter how often you were there for them, and deciding enough is enough. That feeling when you know that regret will coalesce about you for the next few moments, hours, days, or weeks. That feeling when you know the question of whether cutting them out of your life was the right thing to do will haunt you, even though deep down you know that it is the best thing for your mental, emotional, and physical well-being.

If you're going to run a game, be willing to accept some people are going to have a different view than yours and not everyone who expresses a different view thinks yours is bad.

Re: &*(_#&*R^#!!!
Spent several hours over the last several days working on getting some costume armor pieces finished for a friend of a friend, in time for the SLC ComicCon.  Found out today, when I contacted said friend-of-friend to tell him I had his stuff finished and negotiate the remaining balance due on the project, that he's been out of work for a month and a half and has no money for costume projects at the moment.

So, I currently have a set of armor pieces for Yasuo (from League of Legends), instead of the $300-$400 that was remaining due on the project.  Really glad I insisted on $100 up front for supplies, because I have my doubts about whether or not I'll ever see the rest of the money.

Luckily, I wasn't really banking on having that money...it would have been a nice bonus, but I'll survive easily enough without it.  But it would have been a lot easier if, in one of the various 'how's my armor coming' messages he's sent me over the past couple of weeks, he'd just said, "Hey, I lost my job and can't afford to pay anything more on the armor right now..."  Then I wouldn't have felt panicked about trying to get it done in time...wouldn't have stayed up until almost 4 am last night trying to finish it.

But I could've really used that extra money...

Re: &*(_#&*R^#!!!
Had to yell at a neighbor who accused my family of theft. Needless to say, it was wrong. All he did was yell "leave me alone" repeatedly when he couldn't provide any more proof to back himself up. Had the text messages of him doing it. You want your twice-a-day packages from Amazon delivered safe, install a camera. Don't base your accusations on who you dislike the most.

You know, when someone is trying to help you find a place to live the polite thing to do is LISTEN to them and say 'Thank you'.  You should also get off your APPLE PIE and try looking as well, not just relying on a place that MIGHT come available.

Re: Moving.
I'd like to tell all those folks I'd like to hire to do work for me that it would be nice if they'd show up so I could give them money to work for me.....especially since I lost a day of work to do this...

And if you want to move, you might, I dunno, PACK some things you need daily instead of expecting your spouse to remember all of that for you, hence a lot of late night last minute to-and-fro.....

And I'm ever so happy to be forced to do a lot of home repair on two different houses because of the first two reasons, including running to-and-fro to the local hardware stores.  Perhaps I missed my calling, I'd be the handyman who actually showed up and got paid, what a concept !

So if I'm being snarky, well, I'm feeling justified in a bit of huffiness right now.

Re: Moving.
Is it really so difficult to put the cat in a different room right next to the backdoor when you let the dogs or yourself out? OR to even shoot me a text when you are too stupid, and let him get out so I can be sure to listen to him since there is no easy way back into our yard for him?
I'd have thought an OCD oppressor would be able to pay attention to these kind of details...

Re: Moving.
The house guest from Hell.  Cant/wont do anything to help himself, other than getting a job, to get his own place.  Every apartment listing I have found he has turned down because he is waiting for the one place that MIGHT come available above his work place.

He finds out days ago that this one place he's been waiting for is now unavailable.  So instead of telling us that, he's just let it go.  GET OUT OF MY HOUSE ALREADY!!

I swear this is the last time I let family come stay with us beyond a week.  I am not going to take care of another 'child' that wont help themselves.  Your month is up next week, place to live or not. :P

When you can't "correct" your child this early in the morning when he calls you a name when you are forcing him to put a second sock and underwear on, because you know it will make his day that much harder.

Whatever happened to common courtesy?
Okay, I understand, the photographer backed out.  It's Halloween, probably a busy time for him, certainly a busy time for you...but it's also a busy time for me.  Sending me a Facebook message to tell me about the cancellation was a nice token gesture...but considering that I told you--repeatedly--that I don't have Facebook on my phone and if you needed to get in touch with me during the day, you should call or text me, I really feel like you don't value my time much at all.

Yes, I did end up getting a lot more done at work because I didn't have to leave in the middle of the afternoon to do two hours of makeup...but I'd pretty much built my entire day's schedule--and, to some extent, my entire weekend, as well--around that appointment, and spending four hours waiting for some call or text or anything at all from you to inform me that you were home from work and ready...or that we weren't doing this thing today, after all...did NOT do good things for my mood.  Going to dinner and my friend's party brightened things up a lot, but coming back to my laptop after all of that was over and finding a seventeen-hour-old message in the same discussion thread where I sent you my phone number with a 'call/text me during the day, I can't access FB when I'm at work' explanation (only a few messages above the cancellation!) really kind put the edge back on the annoyance.

Re: Whatever happened to common courtesy?
Not my favorite way to start the holiday season...

Found out that the mother of one of my best friends...a woman I've known for over 20 years who's been like an aunt to me...had a severe stroke Sunday night or early Monday morning (she was fine when she went to bed, her husband couldn't wake her up on Monday).

Basically, the left side of her brain is dead...no measurable brain activity detected.  The doctors give her 3-5 days to live.

The good news is, she doesn't seem to be in any pain.  Of course, I'm not even sure she's lucid enough to let anyone know, if she was.

So much for happy holidays...
Got a text from my brother this afternoon.  His stepson committed suicide today.  One of my best friends lost her mother (a woman I've known for close to 25 years) to a stroke at Thanksgiving.

1997 was a bad year...my dad died right before Father's Day.  2014 is working really hard at replacing it as 'darkest year of my life'...

Re: So much for happy holidays...
Soooo frustrated as my husband is working 14-15 hour shifts because his idiot boss told three of his co-workers that they could go work for a different company temporarily....which made it so that Dh and the only other guy who remained to pick up the slack. So he is doing his job and the job of the rest of the crew that left....his boss is a idiot! He was supposed to only have a 2 hour shift today and then work a 10- hour shift tonight, but he just sent me a txt saying he has to work longer and does not know when he will be home now. I knew it!!! I even told him before he left that his boss was going to pull this strudel but he swore that it wouldn't happen. Ugh! Sooooo stressed!!!! and the kicker is that even if he works all these extra hours he won't get paid more because he is salary and even with being salary isn't making much.
