Just Another Manic Monday ~ 2.0
I hadn't thought about it until just a few minutes ago and then had the " AHA ! Shazam ! " moment.
Last week some one got a floral arrangement delivered to the office . It came to the 14'th floor reception desk also known as " MY office " . I called the mail room to have one of the more intrepid lads come and get that shit off my desk pronto.
Seems pronto wasn't quick enough - Le Sigh.
You see , while it was lovely, it had an over abundance of one of the most dreaded components....STAR FRIGGAN LILLIES.
Yes Ma'm , right up there with Tuberoses , Mexican Stock and Hyacinth..you know ..the pretty fragrant ones that we all love until one is cursed with sinus and or allergy mayhem..yeah , that shit.
I guess it came in Thursday.
By mid afternoon the next day ( having taken the Blessed Zyrtec faithfully as birth control pills ) ...my head blew up .
Way more than the usual sinus crap.
Noooooooooo...not like the adorable Nasonex commerical with Antonio ( aging badly there dearest )
Banderas as the cute bumble bee...the sinuses kicking in like your eyes are now looking like a major 1980's coke binge , your nose now resembles WC Fields , the congestion has now backed into my ears to the point that I finally understand why some of my peers had to go through the agony of tubes being inserted into their tax deductions ( love ya darlins) ears..........THE WHOLE FRIGGAN DEALIO.
By the time I got to the car, one of my nemesis ( and what the F is the plural of that ~ ? Sistah...yes , a Kalib moment ) actually felt sorry for me as I was leaving.
Buying into it....have you met me ?????
Anyhoo..even hisself saw how puny I felt.
He HAS to have the radio on in the car..I know...but this time he got out his IPod and plugged in. I laid the seat back and was too far gone to not worry for once about any assorted safety/legal issues.
I just wanted my jammies and bed.
From 7:30 pm, having arrived home at 6:50 pm, after his shower and my cleaning face/dentures...
Until close to noon the next day.
Until the back started to hurt.
Then up for a bit to watch the t slant v..don't ask me what..then
My hand to God the following happened :
I turned over and saw a bit of daylight coming in between the panels of the drapes.
I rolled to the other side and squinted at the clock.
HOLY SHIT !
I then proceed to throw myself out of the water bed , no easy feet there..and go tearing down the hallway croaking "
Honey..........honey...WTF..we overslept . I have to get into work ...E is out today....."
He was of course sound asleep and sincerely thought I was screaming fire as if.....yeah.
Woke his ass up !
He's freaked , I'm still babbling and then ..he says..
" GO BACK TO BED, IT'S SUNDAY ! "
Yeah, I slept that hard.
THEN.....................wait for it....
Then..I get to work, dragging my sorry ass in because co-worker E (see above) is scheduled to be out today.
Then I get the internal memo that she is going to be coming in LATE today.
Now bear in mind , she was fully aware that I was sick, she saw it on Friday and I told her it was bad enough that I would be in bed all weekend so I could make it in today AS SHE WAS SCHEDULED TO BE OUT ...and out coverage for reception if we are down a person is almost nil ...
Did she call me to know she was only going to be an hour late ?
Oh hell no.
Admin could have found coverage for 1 bloody hour .
I did something I have never done before.
I complained directly to HR about all .
Yeppers, I threw her under the bus.
This was not the first time she has pulled this sort of thing..no notice having to leave early..hells bells , both of them do.
But..this time I addressed it up the food chain.
Will anything be done...aw hell no.
Do I feel better ?
To be honest..not completely , I really dislike being pushed to this point.
But..I stood up for myself...for once..for what it's worth.
Have a good week.
