Done with People for the Week

Apparently the theme for this week is "no good deed goes unpunished."  It has been a litany of people either for whom extra efforts were made that weren't good enough, and people for whom long term efforts were made who are pissed off about it (in the "you covered our ass for years - why would you do something terrible like that, you awful person?" category,) with a side of "and we never liked you anyway and we're glad you're gone."

I know I'm often abrasive and hard to get along with - but so are a lot of other people, and I DO make an effort.  So... seriously?


Is it the phase of the moon or something?  'Cause they're coming out of the WOODWORK, and I'm thinking a good coat of shellac is in order.

Okay - I'm done whining now.  But I gotta tell you, given that it's only Wednesday, there had better not be any more this week.  Or else I'm going to grab my pitchfork and go burn someone's thatched hut.

NOW I'm done whining.  And I'm determined that today will be productive and positive.  Or else.  :-)

Hugs! I hope your week gets better.

2 questions:

Is the mead making workshop Saturday or Sunday? I can't find the announcement.

Can I bring the Bean or will she be disruptive?

I left you a message on your phone.

The workshop is on Saturday. Give me a call and we can talk about Bean.

This would be the point at which I'd hermit up good, being in the happy position of being able to lock myself away from people ENTIRELY for days on end (unless I see someone for a few seconds when popping out of my cave to pee or grab a banana or something.)

I don't mind being me. This lifestyle is pretty much the only one that suits me...total freedom to be a recluse as necessary. All you have to do is get an incurable degenerative disease to achieve it!

Honestly, so far it's worth the price.

I'm glowering heavily. That seems to be keeping the co-workers away. Probably I should stay off email, because that seems to be where the REAL wastes of carbon products are hanging out.

But yes - right now seclusion for a few days sounds very... peaceful.

Fie on them! Fie!

I feel a bit guilty to admit it but you've made me feel suddenly better about my week. All I'm dealing with is the usual-- being on the receiving end of a large pile of "hurry up and wait". I just wish the lump of markups&signoffs&releases had arrived last week when I was working through a migraine- I can work through it, just not projects that require a lot of critical thinking. And that's the only kind I had until Monday, so I did a bit of lollygagging and took some sick time.

It may be a bad alignment of the stars, metaphorically speaking: I'm having a crappy week as well. Hope it gets better for you.

Seriously - is Mercury in retrograde or something?

*hug* Sometimes it seems like a conspiracy. Anyway, this too shall pass. In the meantime, I still think you are awesome if that helps. ;-)

I checked: we are just coming out of the "shadow period." Mercury was in metrograde from late Dec. to mid-Jan. It'll be in retrograde again in April.

(So, I guess the week is crappy on its own merits...)
