This has been one fucker of a nasty Mercury retrograde! Everything has gone to hell in a handbasket, it seems.
I had a run in with a nazi-like woman who hired me on Saturday, then went ballistic on me when I showed up for work this morning. I simply asked her if she was going to use my company for her Mac support needs or if she expected me to do it for $10/hr (it didn’t matter, I just needed to know), and she had a complete meltdown. I spent the whole morning on pins and needles and then she yelled at me again for wanting to move a computer to a different desk. I left for lunch and decided that I’d most likely quit when I returned. Fortunately, it was unnecessary, she cut me a check for $100 and I left. Isn’t that the weirdest thing ever? Oh, well, at least I made $100 out of it, which is about what I’d make on a short Mac call. Hell, better this way than a week from now, when my position at the restaurant is filled and then I’d have NO job at all. The restaurant manager was so happy that I wasn’t leaving that it somehow seems appropriate that I stay. At least I’m appreciated there!
I’m totally feeling unappreciated these days across the board: home, friends, work, universe. It seems that everything I do turns to shit in some way. I don’t think I have the facts to back that up, but that’s the way it feels! Eh, maybe it’s just PMS…
