Me: Okay, is there something I can do to help you finish it up?
Her: Didn't you just hear me?! Pour me another glass of wine. Please. (sarcasm on the please)

(I pour her 4th glass of wine and just stare at her as she's telling a story to a coworker who already said that she needs to go because she has to get up early. This other coworker cannot go until Bully finishes paper work so I can give them their tips. I just lean on the counter and stare at her until she gets up to finish the paper work. I literally cannot do any more of my work until she gives me her part. She has worked here for 11 years and knows this.)

As we are leaving:
Me: Hey, Myra*, I'm sure you don't realize it, but I cannot finish my paper work until I have your part.
Her: What is your problem?! We used to be friends and now all the rules have changed! (standing up out of her chair to be in my face)
Me: Excuse me? The rules haven't changed. You've always treated me like sh*t, and I've had enough. I am DONE! (I walk away. I'm not looking for a fight.)

I try so hard to talk to her in a nice, non-confrontational way. Just nudge her along into being a considerate coworker. Not only does she refuse to have consideration for me, she takes it as an opportunity to yell at me. The thing is, it's not just a difference in personality between the two of us. No one wants to work with her.

Le sigh... What to do, what to do...
Is this the same woman that was giving you crap about turning on or off the fans or something like that? How does this woman still have a job?

Well ninj, at some point I'll be over to visit you and how will I know who you are unless I see a pic first. Or you carry a big sign. Or wear a giant purple hat.

Great, now what's wrong with me? I'm attracting injuries like a magnet. The ball of my right foot below the big toe hurts. It better not be gout, although it does seem to be a lot like a foot injury my brother had.

I think that is one of those universal questions that will never be answered. There's always some places that promote the lazy people, and treat the good workers like crap. I've seen it several times.

I once got wrote up for missing a spot cleaning MY Co-WORKER's area who spent the whole time playing video games with the manager. The co-worker, not even a verbal reprimand. How the hell does that work?

We weren't allowed to leave until all the cleaning was done. It was expected that if you got done first, you had to help everyone else. I busted my butt so I could get out of there at a decent hour. I was a master of quick closes. My record was 7 minutes. The others literally nothing until after close, and sometimes not even that. It wasn't uncommon that the other closer to not touch the dishes (their main closing duty) the whole shift until after close. In a restaurant, that's can be HOURS worth of work.

I very quickly found a new job after that. Life is too short for that crap.

Ok, so I had planned to wait until tomorrow to try it out, because I've already showered today. But, I got over eager and had to at least SEE what it was like.

I did a few of the little "learn the steps" things, and you're right, it's kinda hard! But, that may have something to do with me not really being a good dancer. But I do like it, so far! We'll see how I feel about it once I do an actual workout...

Yep...

While she was complaining to the Chef about me, he said she said that although I'm not friendly, I'm very professional.

Didn't know you had to be friends with your coworkers...

There is an end in sight, and I tell myself to just hold on tight everyday. I will not let an idiot affect my life and ability to work.

Thanks for letting me vent!

Hugs to you Rubber Biscuit.

LeSigh, I really should know better. I used the knife that I cut myself with EVERY TIME to cut up orange bell peppers. I think there are stitches in my future. I may throw that long-a$s-POS away too.

I had a wonderful night. Sitting on the porch, talking, holding hands, laughing, and cuddling. He didn't kiss me. I kind of like that he was too shy to go through with it and kissed me on the forehead and the cheek instead. I guess it gives me time to get over my shyness, too.
Everyone saw him here (he surprised me by showing up after work), so there's no way to hide whatever happens. Ah well, it's only a few more weeks. I can deal.

Ok, so I let the boys pick out a movie to watch together. They started Avatar the last airbender movie before I knew what they did.

Oh.My.God. It is so horrible that I can't look away. If they would have watched even 5 minutes of the cartoon they could have improved it immeasurably.. They aren't even pronouncing the main characters name's right, or the name of the movie! They made everyone serious and debbie downers. It's like a serious version of the play they had in the cartoon.

They changed so much for absolutely no reason!

Henna - 1/2 lbs on my head. lol.

I give up. I rehennaed today. I cut my bangs last night. They looked good lengthwise but were nearly 100% grey and looked odd because the rest of my hair (except for roots) is brownish burgandy! Hennahead. It is an addiction I am happy to hold onto.

I'm really loving how soft and less frizzy my hair has been, why didn't I try this stuff sooner.
