Totally and completetely pissed off ..........

First off let me apologize for my language but there just isn't any other way to say it.  Just when things are going along nicely someone has to upset the apple cart with absolutely no thought to how their actions will effect others.

As you know I've been working overtime for a bit now and was supposed to work tomorrow which would have been a big boost to our finances right now.  So I got to work this morning and turned in my overtime for the week and said to my manager that I didn't feel comfortable putting in my time for tomorrow till I had worked it.  She informed me that all overtime had been canceled till at least next week.  I got to thinking and then remembered I'd seen out Union rep in our office a few times yesterday and one of the girls that had not been offered overtime was a bit po'ed.  Well put 2 and 2 together and you get a complaining woman who never works when she is there and the Union and all hell breaks loose.  So now I have to wait till Monday to see if the overtime is going to come back or it she has spoiled it for everyone.  Yes, it should be offered if there is a need for it but this woman works hard at not working.  I am fuming right now ..........she obviously doesn't realize that she probably shot herself in the foot and took the rest of us down with her.

On a brighter note today is my Dad's 80th birthday so I dropped by after work with a card and a gift card from Joey's only, it's his favorite place to eat.  It is the first time I've been in their house and they've lived there for almost 3 years.  My Mom even talked to me ......... I am so happy about that.

The weather turned real nice and it was +2C today and raining so everything is slippery and it was a bit of a drive home tonight.  I'm tired and heading for bed and looking at the good side of things cuz I get to sleep in tomorrow.


  1. How wonderful to have both your parents here. Wow. Happy Birthday to you Dad on his 80th!

  2. happy birthday to your dad! my mom turned 80 her last birthday (in august). i understand the frustration you're looking at with that lady. worked with some of those, too. PITA. (pain in the a**)

  3. Just fucks you off when you are counting on something and then someone goes and changes the goal posts. You don't know where you are. It doesn't matter if you say anything a lot of the time because they are your 'superiors' (ha!) and in the eyes of a company you haven't a leg to stand on. Yet if you were to change a shift at their inconvenience, you bet they'd have you bang to rights. They'd make a right kafuffle over it.

    Bless you, just try to rise above it, whilst not compromising your position.
