I work for lawyers and I have been there for going into 25 years.
I am am part of a department of three people.
I co-ordinate a lot of stuff..courthouse filings....courier services .
Plus dealing with clients.
I LIKE my job .
It's show time .
I also work with two women who take off at the drop of a hat as we say down here.
Senority at my firm means nothing.
I have taken two days out of the office............huzzah.........before the other heifers put in for them.
One gal spent eight weeks taking off a half day on Thursday and al day on the next day.
How long does it take to move your gear ?
The other one..well lets just say..if there is a sports game she is attending..do not look for her the next day.
I have had to fight for every partial or full day I get off.
I promised the Hubbo I wold just veg today.
I see laundry....I see stuff to be done.
But he is right.
The Moving in with boyfriend was a tad verklepmt that I put in and got approved to take the week of Thanksgoving off.
I told them both when G got his job, we were going to see the baby.
Do Not Mess With Me here .
I am fighting to stop myself from being Shadout Mapes ( Dune Ref) .
And I am angry that I am in this position.
I am soul weary of having to fight to get a day off after 25 years at the firm.
I am soul weary of no one noticing.
I AM TIRED .
