Feeling like the gum on the bottom of the shoe of life

Today is one of those days where you just want to quit.  Work sucks.  Sick kid.  People are idiots.  Everyone wants something. 

I am at work, and I don't have a door.  I am in the middle of the office, so I don't have the option to just shut the door and keep to myself.  I have been at work for 1 hr and 15 min.  The same person has called 3 times.  The phone has rang 2x more (so we are up to 5 calls in 75 min.).  Two people have come to the main door.

I did get part of my room cleaned yesterday, but sick Bossy was very needy.  It was a long day.  And today isn't looking much better.  G-man is home with him.  I came into work and was confronted with an email that apparently Boss was annoyed I had a sick kid.

Not a good day.


  1. Ah Mysti, not a fair day at all. I hope Bossy feels better soon and your boss gets sick! Oops, did I say that out loud?

    Sending you a cyber hug full of empathy.

  2. Sorry you are having such a bad day. That was the thing I detested while working when my son was little - always being made to feel guilty when I had to stay home with a sick child. Hope all is better soon!

  3. Mysti, I remember a job I had right out of college and I was not allowed to miss work. I came in sick. I brought my little girl to the office sick. The whole atmosphere was sick. I am glad I got out, but your boss will calm down I am sure he was just frustrated like you are frustrated now. Keep your chin up it will get better.

  4. Here's hoping for a better day today! Hugs and Good Luck!!!!!!

  5. so sorry - that totally sucks.... sometimes people are heartless.. :(

  6. My husband's boss has the rule of you can't call in sick unless "you have a bone sticking out"...unless HE is the one that is sick. Ugh! I also work at a place where if I am sick, I almost have a freakin' panic attack because I get total 'tude when I do call in (which I have missed 2 days since August - 1 was a planned apptmt to be my niece's driver when she had a procedure done and the other I was sick). Ugh!!
