Promotion…

FINALLY I got the details…just shortly after posting to FB about how I was so frustrated I was near tears…yup it was not a good Monday morning.

so tomorrow I start 7-3 and this will be my new schedule unless they discover any conflicts but I don’t think it will be an issue. And I start training with Daniel on backhauls tomorrow for the next two weeks, and when Tommy gets back from Vacation on the 24th, I will train with him on Safety admin.

 

It’s only taken over 3 freaking months, but FINALLY!!!! So I can stop being stressed over it.

 

And after training with Daniel…I will be getting my own desk…I will get to take over his. 🙂 Finally my own space that I don’t think I will have to share…but I might still have to share it with Daniel…since he’ll be a night shift supervisor….I’m not sure. We shall see. But that won’t be so bad, because he’s clean and doesn’t even have any decor at his desk. lol

Bored stiff

I have been training my replacement for my current job/duties at work and she is doing really well so I am kinda just sitting here getting paid to look over her shoulder and play on my phone. Because I don’t have a computer now she has what was mine. I asked my supervisor about that and he said he would check on getting my computer… I told him she is doing really well and I am really bored. Lol I feel bad, too, because I am not making much of a contribution right now. And the day is going by so slowly. 

My allergies kicked in on Monday and got to be awful. The worst attack I have had in probably 12 years. My nose and my right eye are just running. I haven’t even been ablebto wear make up to work this week because of my eye. Its a little better today, but yesterday was the most miserable day. 

I bought new clothes and shoes this last weekend. I got leggings… I am never wearing real pants again! Lol


I hope everyone had a: 

I am sleepy now because I had a headache and took some benadryl for it. I am still shocked how well that works. I wish I had known that years ago. I would rather be sleepy than have a pounding headache! 

Cant wait for my new schedule to start! 

Oh and I made this the other day. These guys are my top 5… they are my “hall pass” list… my hubby and I each have one. Not that we really would… but its funny. Left to right, in case you don’t know all of them: Tom Hardy, Christian Kane, Eddie Vedder, Jensen Ackles and Chris Hemsworth. Yummy! Lol

Alrighty, I guess that’s it for now… 

Don’t be so infantile… 

So I probably shouldn’t admit this, but I had a favorite driver at work. He was my favorite because he would joke with me and when he would come in he would always say to the other drivers at check in… “you know, I’m her favorite!” and he was adorable. He was my favorite for his silliness and jokes. I never told him he was my favorite… he came up with that on his own. Well about two months ago, I was having a conversation with my coworker and he interjected himself into the convo. I argued with his view on events because we both know the person and from a fellow truck drivers perspective it went one way and from administrations perspective it went another and technically we are both right. But apparently its not OK to disagree with him. He hasn’t spoken to me since that day.

This week I started training my replacement because I am starting a job in the department with different duties. Today when she checked him in, he talked to her. And that upset me. Not on her part… but on his. But I sure as hell wouldn’t let him know it. He wants to be an asshole, he can be… but I will not let him see that I am bothered by it. 

On Tuesday, when I introduced her to him… I said, “this is ___, he no longer speaks to me.” he didn’t say a damn thing to that. 

If he is wants to be an asshat, he can expect it right back and I will do the bare minimum of my job as it pertains to him and I will not be nice about it. 

Today’s Mantra

“You have a three day weekend, you have a three day weekend, you have a three day weekend!!!”

Just keep repeating that over and over, because I am not having a good day. Driver’s are making me want to scream.

2 breakdowns and one driver answered to say he’d let me know when he was done with his own route…and he’s sick, and has been since last week and still isn’t feeling good, and so I feel really bad about even asking him. He’s off the hook we sent a new driver to help the one guy and the other guy…I told him I couldn’t get the driver he asked me to reach and he wasn’t surprised…and really neither was I because that guy is an ass!

Anyway, I am so over this day!

Current Mood:

I feel good today, but I don’t feel like being at work…I feel like doing something fun…being out in the sun and warmth. Instead, I’m stuck in an office that is freezing and doesn’t even have any goddamned windows.

FUCK THIS SHIT!

See that featured image…yeah that’s where I wanna be! Cannon Beach, the best damn place on earth!

I need a beach trip!!!

Shitty day…

It was a crazy ass busy day at work, and we had all kinds of issues and I had to tend to a lot of them on my own…and my phone didn’t stop ringing. So one of the issues, a missing key, which should have only taken me about 30-45 minutes to search for took me an hour and a half because I would get through about 10 keys and my phone would ring again. It was a shit show…

On top of already having a bad day, my favorite driver was not very nice to me today. He left his key in the truck and I asked him if he was going to go and get it and he said “tomorrow” I said “No I need it back, in case it has to go out tonight.” That made him mad, he did go get it, but then he threw it across the counter into the key room and walked out. I mean I know he had a bad day, but I was joking with him when he came in, and he was not nice to me at all. It really bothered me, because I bust my ass to help them. In my current position, that’s my main job is to assist them in anyway I can…I help with scanner/printer problems, I help with E-log problems, I answer other questions, I get them help when they get behind for whatever reason. I make sure info is always correct and updated for them so they get the right keys they need…plus tons of other things that arise…so when one of them is not very nice to me, I do take offense. Especially because he’s my favorite driver…and he knows it. He really hurt my feelings today by being such a jackass. It’s just like, don’t shit on me because you had a bad day…I’m your ally!

And I’m overly emotional lately because I have completely gotten off of the antidepressant I was taking and now I’m just on a mood stabilizer.

Anyway, I’m done venting I’m going to go work on my story and maybe read.

It’s been a crappy day…

I am just irritable AF…everyone and everything is annoying me today and I’m at work and have to keep smiling, though I’ve been on the verge of tears several different times…I have an IUD so I don’t get a period anymore, but I swear I must be PMSing….

My arch-nemesis…IE the one single driver I can’t stand because he yelled at me when I was trying to help him came in a little bit ago. I still won’t talk to him outside of what is required to do my job. But he comes in and puts his stuff on the counter…he pulled out his keys from his pocket and sets them down along with a quarter, a nickel and a penny…and says “Everything but the change.” Really, you asshat, you think I want your dirty change? WTF am I going to do with 31 cents??? He’s such an idiot….he got in trouble for talking to me that way and still has never apologized, I’ve had other drivers snap at me over the phone too, but usually within 5 minutes they call me right back and apologize…but him, it’s been like 6 months or something and still nothing. I’m over it…but really how big of an ego do you have to have that you get written up for something and still can’t admit you were wrong…?

Whatever. I’m just irritated about everything.

 

I can’t wait to go home tonight. I have acupuncture tomorrow and I pretty much plan on spending the weekend doing a whole lot of nothing important but fun stuff instead…like journaling, blogging, reading my Buddhism books and watching Doctor Who…and probably working on my Vedder Fic…yup.

Not too much adulting this weekend! lol

So I have this statement piece that I love, and got at Saturday Market in Portland. It’s a ring made out of the handle of a spoon or fork.

It has cranes on it…so in my new spiritual quest I decided to look up the symbolism of cranes and found a lot of cool info:

“Crane

The crane’s fidelity and mating rituals make it a common symbol for loyalty and successful marriage. Its fabled long life span also makes it a symbol of longevity.

The crane is a popular symbol in Asian culture, and the practice of folding paper cranes for good fortune, healing, happiness, and success was popularized by Sadako Sasaki, a young victim of the radiation from the Hiroshima disaster. Chains of paper cranes, often numbering a thousand in total, are given as offerings at temples and shrines. The crane is also perceived as a bird capable of flying to the very heavens, and is said to have borne spirits of the deceased there upon its back. In ancient China, the crane was used as the symbol of highest-ranking officials.

The longevity of the crane may also have caused it to be associated with a family tree or lineage. Our word pedigree may come from the French word for “foot of the crane,” or pied de grue. Legend has it that the crane’s legs grow before its wings do, suggesting that the bird has a strong tie to the ground. The crane is also associated with vigilance; it was said to keep watch on one leg while holding a stone in the other foot. The stone would drop if the crane dozed off, waking it and its companions. Heraldry (the art of designing and displaying coats of arms and other devices that identify a family or group) often shows the crane holding a stone in this way, symbolizing alertness.

In one of Aesop’s fables, a peacock laughs at the duller crane. The crane admits that it may not be as visually stunning as the peacock, but it has the capability to soar to the very heavens, whereas the peacock is stuck on the ground. The moral of the story is the commonly repeated adage,
“Fine feathers do not make a fine bird.” In Celtic myth, the crane bag, made from the skin of a crane, held many of the treasures precious to the Irish god Mannanan. One of these treasures may have been the staves of ogham, a rune-like system of writing or divination whose shapes are sometimes compared to the sticklike shape of a crane’s legs.

Omens and divinatory meaning: If you see a crane flying, it may be drawing your eyes to the heavens, lifting your spirits, and inspiring you to trust in the universe. If you see it standing, it may be advising vigilance and alertness.”

I thought that was all really cool.

I am so bored at work, I guess I should start getting key sheets ready…but the light duty guy is STILL putting keys away…it’s like DANG! lol I think he’s just being super careful.

Anyway, back to work….
