I can't believe I'm having to deal with such incompetence - yesterday was truly a day from h**l!
You see, that storm "Titan" - well, in my neck of the woods it was literally - a- *DUSTING* - NOTHING MORE! Incredible to see that and still be told that a job would be closed up tight due to - ahem - WEATHER!
Well - that turned out to NOT be the end of the story.........after the first voicemail of "good news", at which point the apoplexy kicked in, as it were........I got two additional voicemails while I was plugging along at my morning gig (I don't regularly check my phone during work - professional protocol, you know) - and things really got bizarre!
Message #2, which wasn't all that clear (gotta LOVE cellphones!), essentially stated that they were reconsidering the closure - based on how the group responded on a "yes, I'll come in" or "no, I won't" basis.............in the meantime there's STILL no additional accumulations - snow, ice, rain or anything else!
People, people - PEOPLE!
THREE words for you.........wait for it.....
(OOOPS - or do you have DirectTV, by any chance? In that case.....never mind........)
To make the day even more annoying, TODAY would happen to be the day that the ol' spouse suggest - wait for this $#!@# now - GOING OUT FOR AN EVENING!
DUH! I DON'T THINK SO, pal.......stress level through the roof calls for NOTHING ELSE but COMFORT TV! Don't ya get me - and more importantly, my traditional coping strategies - by now? Sheesh!
At least he didn't get nasty about it - he was aware of the impact of my being "professionally PLAYED*, so he did back off and head out solo (that's actually not a problem for this activity, necessarily).......
Blog title says it all - why the $#!@# am I even bothering to go through the motions here? I'm already seeing my "pseudo-Lenten" project going right down the tubes before it even starts.........but that may be just fine since I've been "spiritually challenged" for many years.........during several of the past few Lenten seasons I would, at least to some extent, "clean up" aspects of my eating regimen as that has been an ongoing issue........right now, with my mood, I'm not sure I see this happening - and there's a Shrove event this evening.......not sure I can even get the *courage* up to head there.......I just want to cocoon myself for as long as possible.........what is the use, after all!
(Sigh...........I've just had a chance to hear some of my favorite "New Age" music online in the last few minutes - and it's not doing thing one in settling me down - sheesh!)
(VENT mode off now........yeah, I know - about time, eh!)
That's it for here from the ol' "sour Raspberry".............think it may be time to take a break for now...........thank you for putting up with this vent - take care!)
