Workin' for a Livin'

There are just not enough hours in the day. The more I think I'm getting caught up, the more behind I seem go get. And what really sucks is...I don't fuck off all day!

I need my weekends to look for a decent place to live, and TRY to relax. SOMEBODY's gotta pick up the slack, and we ALL know who's NOT gonna be doing THAT anytime soon. LMAO (Oh yeah, THAT'S a clue that will neither be sought nor found!)

It's just not fair. (I know, I know...life isn't fair.)

I have a dog. I LOVE my dog. My dog is my KID, the only kid I'll ever have. Well, I didn't actually get knocked up by an Australian Heeler (GROSS!) and give BIRTH, but the adoption papers are real, so technically, she's my pseudo-kid.
I hate spending time away from her. I realize I HAVE to, if I want us both to eat, stay warm/cool, keep a roof over our heads and upkeep the car so she can hang her head out the window and bark at strangers. I get that. It just sucks that I can't spend as much time/energy with her as I want.

What I DON'T get is how some people give 150% at their jobs, while others get away with MAYBE 60% or less, and manage to stay employed.

Yeah, I'm ranting again, but I have just been feeling cheated. I brought work home with me. Granted, it was kind of mindless shit I could do while watching Gilmore Girls and CSI reruns, but it was still work, to make life easier for other people AT work, including myself. I only made a measly hot dog for dinner, and ain't chargin' the company for the 2 1/2 hours I spent DOING said mindless shit. I'll probably do the same thing again tomorrow, although NOT so mindless, because I need the weekend for personal shit. Imagine that. Feeling GUILTY for taking a WEEKEND so I can have a so-called life. Huh. I already feel guilty enough for taking ONE fucking vacation day. Jesus. You'd think I was gone a WEEK the way people were happy I was back. FUCK. I guess I should be happy they appreciate me, but still...I fill in for everyone else when THEY are gone, but my shit piles UP while I'M gone. What the FUCK?

Do I care? Yeah. Do I care too much? Probably. Will I end up going in over the weekend to play catchup? More than likely, since a few of the apartments I want to see are in that area. I'm doing laundry as I NEED it. Fashion? What the fuck is THAT? I barely take time to do my makeup and hair in the mornings. God Damn, I'm a sucker for guilt. Must be the Catholic in me...there's gotta be SOME kind of therapy for this. I believe they call it Xanax? ha ha ha!

On a good note, I did manage to break off a call to my folks, who live like ten miles from me, and whom I haven't seen in over a month. Well, I got to talk to my Dad, anyway. Moms was on her way home (she stays late AND brings the shit home), and I'm bummed I missed her, but it was good to at least touch base. Sometimes she and I get a chance to email a line or two. Maybe I can stop in there this weekend after work...ha ha. Or maybe we can get together when THEY get to retire. ha.

Happy Hump Day, y'all!

Hey, I'm on first!
There's some mathematical correlation somewhere about how the more you get paid, the less work you actually do. Hmmmm. Did I just make that up? No, no, I read it somewhere. That's not to say someone else didn't make it up...

akelda ~ HA! LESS work, and they just pay her more. Must be her big tits or something...maybe it's time I got a boob job and just stopped caring.

"What I DON'T get is how some people give 150% at their jobs, while others get away with MAYBE 60% or less, and manage to stay employed".

Even worse is when your boss recognizes the asshole that does 60 percent and shits on you.

I think I'm on second but what's on third.

cork ~ you know what I'm talkin' about...

LOL I LOVE that old A&C bit...I can never remember it word for word, though...

The only time I ever gave 150% at work was that one time I was in a porno. ;)
