Friday could not come soon enough this week. It’s like that white surrender flag in a week of battle with technology and irritating coworkers.
I had to call one of my managers to discuss something and she totally side tracked me and hijacked the topic of conversation and proceeded to bombard me with all of her questions for the issue she had to resolve. This broad gets under my skin something fierce. She’s this walking cloud of confusion and her nervous energy rankles me.
After thirty minutes of back and forth and oh and another thing, she remembers that I called her for a specific reason and says “oh I’m sorry, I sidetracked you. Did you want to discuss the issue you’re having?” Hell to the no. I want to get rid of you as fast as I can because you have sucked what little energy I have left out of me and now I’m fearing my blood and internal organs are next.
I nearly lost my shit and walked out yesterday vowing never to return. Then I remembered my debt load and thought better of it.
This is a first for me. I’ve handled lots of stress over the years but now I just don’t have the stomach for it anymore. I cringe as I say this because I think of the old adage, “be careful what you wish for”.
I would be hard pressed to find another job that matches the pay, pension, benefits and flexibility this one offers.
Still though, I feel like I’ve had it and at times start to question the whole shebang. It kind of sucks that this is what life is about. Truly we are slaves to the grind. I wonder if people are truly happier once they retire and their time is their own.
I have a weirdo friend/acquaintance who has gone off the grid about a year ago. I think I am starting to understand why. However, living in an RV in Canada is not my idea of a dream come true.
Sigh…if I could have one wish, it would be to be a successful writer and make loads of money so that I would never have to step foot in an office again. What do you think? Just a pipe dream?
Have you ever felt like just walking away from the daily and starting fresh somewhere else?
Looking forward to the labor day weekend. Happy Friday all!
