So after Monday whinge post I think things went even more south.
Tuesday morning, switch on my work computer and there is nothing – dead as a doorknob or is it nail? Anyway – phoned the IT people it took them 3 hours to get here.
I now once again have a new boss and he is the type that will make you sit at work for all your work hours even if you can’t do anything. So I sat at my desk reading my kindle. The worst is that he kept on coming into my office asking me things and when I can’t answer him because I don’t have a computer he gets irritated with me.
Tuesday afternoon – due to Zoe’s mom’s incompetence and inability to receive all correspondence from the netbal, she was demoted to a spare player instead of being in the A team – so we drove about 20km’s for her to play 5 minutes – well at least she enjoyed the 5 minutes. Got to the car – her foot slipped when she got in the car and she hits her shin against the body of the car – bruised shin and the next morning she can barely walk because her quad hurts. So now the leg is still sore and she has to play netball again tomorrow! I can’t allow her not to play – or can I? Goodness, I’m so bad with this team sport thing – running is so solitary and you can do it when you want, if you want.
Anyway Wednesday and Thursday I sat at work without anything to do and just taking abuse from the new boss. If I had a computer yesterday I may have typed my resignation letter but then I decided no – if they want to get rid of me, they can retrench me and at least I can get all my leave pay and 6 weeks retrenchment money. They even fought with me because I took a day out to do the IRP5 submissions! I wonder what they’ll do if I don ‘t do it!
And then the computer people brought my computer back yesterday afternoon and I was promptly called to come in and do some work. They couldn’t wait until this morning!! The only silver lining is that the hard drive of the computer is fine – so I still have all my work.
And now I’m sitting here looking at all the piles and piles of work and I wonder if I should even do it because we were already told we won’t get paid at the end of the month and the retrenchments are still looming as well.
Goodness what a $%%^%&. Can’t say it.
What a whingey post! Sorry guys.
I went for a Vit B injection yesterday and that is like an instant mood lifter so hopefully today will seem better.
And the nerves around Comrades is incomprehensible – every time I see something about it – the butterflies in my stomach take flight! I really really hope the run is better than last year.
On some good news – the cat is better, Jack is better and we took delivery of our camping tent trailer thingy yesterday!
Have a wonderful weekend – Deblet challenged me on Facebook to bake something for someone else on Sunday. As luck would have it I promised some cupcakes to a friends daughter for her birthday so I’m all sorted. I’m thinking of doing some cookie confetti as well – the poor kid – they’ve been having a real tough time with their mom and the upheaval around her attempted suicide so I want to try and make it as special as possible for her.
