PostSubject: The Something Bad Happened to Me Today Thread   Thu Jan 17, 2013 9:22 pm

My phone died. My computer died right after. My sister went into the ER last night and my mom is getting four spine discs replaced. Neither parent has a job and I'm staying at home this semester so I can help pay for food.

Weirdly this isn't the most horrible period in my life, but it's still sucking.

If just sitting up gets your pulse up, maybe you shouldn't.

I accidentally saw a bunch of coworkers' personal files. Nothing big just you know, files where records of discussion, certification, etc are kept.

And among them all, I saw personal notes from my manager thanking them personally for their hard work.

I never get any of that. I never call in, always try my best and it's always "oh, thank you Disco. Bye Disco." In a tone that seems as if they want me to get out of their faces. I worked with a badly sprained ankle last year, a double shift, bowling over in pain bussing 75-80lb trays and nobody gave a shit, in the end the experienced, misogynistic, homophobic swing shift crew was calling me a pussy. All while they fucking stood there, while I could barely walk, working from 7am straight until 3:45 the next fucking day and all I got was OH YOU GOD DAMN PUSSY. I could have taken tables (sure, now say that Disco that you know how to serve) and made $500 that fateful day but no, bus tables for a tenth of that while you don't share your personal life, while everyone else acts like a meth-addled sixth grader bitching about their fifth DUI or whatever and how great they are as a person while I'm standing there wondering why these assholes get to be so entitled ( yeah I know, but its irritating. I haven't let go of how sour I am over graduating with my degree working under sketch individuals who don't know what a school is, it's shallow and stupid but my degree isnt the shit either). Sure I don't expect an award but every time, every bit of effort put forth feels like a Linkin Park song as they reap their rewards and I work countless hours, never calling in nor complaining and what do they do? Stick me in the motherfucking ice cream shop. Yes, I asked so I could learn and supervisors know all the departments and procedures. I didn't say, oh make me a supervisor because I will learn that fucking ice cream shop, I just made it like I liked to learn new things. Which I do. I'd like to get a "good job" note or have some recognition, is all. Ah, the thankless adult world.

I'm aware of how I shouldn't let it affect me, but at the same time FUCK am I bugged

The whole being bugged bit will pass, I suppose. I can afford therapy now, thanks to said job. The people who matter are great and I should not let the bastards get me down. Felt good to rant, though. Thanks, meatless-space.

I sick of being abused for trying to help people.

Maybe I should give up. It'd make life a whole lot easier.

I concede I don't know all the particulars of your situation, but let me just say this: you deserve better treatment than you're getting.

Thanks Chris.

FYI, Arwen-Undomiel.com's forums are full of territorial assholes. Kinda like here, except they don't have a sense of humor.

Also, I really hate Evangelical Christianity. My hubby's aunt apparently was an Evangelical Christian (I had no idea, she never tried to force it down my throat and was friendly to her Lutheran family members) so her funeral was at an Evangelical church. I wouldn't have minded so much, except the pastor was extremely rude to everyone who wasn't an Evangelical Christian. He kept trying to convert people, in that really smug, condescending way, that reeks of "I'm getting a present, and you're not! HA-ha!"

In his speech, he made my aunt-in-law sound like an awful person. He bragged about how she and members of her youth group broke up a highschool dance to shout about how sinful everyone was being. That churned my stomach.

Also, he praised the highschool friend that converted her over her own family - over her own husband and children! Over her parents!

He knew that he was talking to a group of people who in majority were not Evangelical Christian. Why couldn't he turn it down a notch or twenty for the sake of the grieving family members?

That was some painful 4 hours to sit through.

Not today, but yesterday

I must have stepped funny on my surgically repaired knee while I was at work, and it tweaked on me. At first it wasn't too bad so I thought nothing of it. When I got home at noon though it was tweaking with just about every step I took. The rest of the day consisted with me in bed with my leg over a pillow, afraid to move a single muscle.

It's better today, but I don't think I've ever had a day like that before.

This happened on Tuesday, but fuck you.

I have sprained my knee. In a laughable manner more fitting Lemmingwriter than the Athletic God, Mikey Go WOOGA. Tuesday night was fucking cold, and we had rugby practice. Running unopposed, I got the ball and then pretended like I got tackled by going to the ground and placing the ball. In the act of falling over on my own accord, I planted my knee into the frozen ground and jammed my kneecap funny. This isn't even the first time I have been involved in an injury at practice in a noncontact drill. We were a few people short one night in the fall, just running touch back and forth for something to do, and trying to touch me down, one of our wingers tripped over my foot and tore ligaments in his foot.

Going full speed in games, neither myself nor anyone involved in a tackle or ruck I was involved in has gotten hurt. But when we start prissing around, people leave on stretchers.

It's a mild sprain or whatever and is supposed to be all better within a week or so, provided I don't do something (like stumbling over my roommate's goddamn cat in the dark) to further aggravate it. It doesn't hurt to walk around on, but the fucking brace they gave me is itchy as shit. Upset

Seriously, I wouldn't have been too concerned about the knee had it not felt like someone was stabbing me in the knee with a thumbtack when I tried to PR squats, but this brace is driving me up the wall.

tl;dr Minor knee injury is sustained in a funny manner and causes infernal itching.

Goddamn brace.

Goddamn brace.

And moving around with a knee brace is awkward as fuck, speaking from experience here. Dislocated my kneecap by slipping on ice when I was a teenager.
Get well soon.

Well, yours seems to be relatively legit--sports and all--as compared to my most recent fall, which was down the stairs while carrying cat shit.

Goddamn brace.

They have these little sock things that you put over plaster casts or under cam-walker casts that keep your skin from getting irritated. See if you can get one of those for between your knee and the brace. Having some soft fabric between the two might help the itching.

Sick. I've missed two days of work. I have to drag my ass to work tomorrow, no matter how I feel. >_O And it is a closing shift. Here's to hoping my voice doesn't go completely out before the end of the night.

The best thing about Seattle tears is that they never stop flowing.

It's hard to tell if you're just trying to bug me or if you're actually one of those eternally butt-obliterated Seattle fans who still sincerely believe that it was the refs and not the Seahawks truly abominable play that is the reason they lost that game.

To bug you, duh. I think it's hilarious that you're all "XL was a legit win" Mr. Steelers, but as soon as you don't like the outcome QQ NEVER HAVE I SEEN SUCH REFBALL ;_;

I think it's hilarious you haven't figured out how sports work yet. Razz

Besides, most of the "bad calls" Seattlefags incessantly whine about either weren't important (the inexplicable blocking below the knees on a goddamn tackle) or were the correct call (that Seahawk TD called by because Clark Haggans was being strangled from behind was certainly holding). Defensive Pass Interference in the endzone with two minutes left in a 5 point game is SRS BZNS.
