What The Hell, Me?

Seriously, what am I doing at work today? I photographed a wedding last night (for my second, more creative job). I'm exhausted. This is my last week of work at my old job.

Clearly I'm an idiot. Because my old job doesn't give enough of a shit about me and my teeny tiny paycheck to give me more money to stay, and yet? I'm still here. Actually working after giving my two week notice. I mean, does anyone actually do that?

I should have taken this week as vacation. But no, Miss Responsible has decided to be here every day this week so that she can train the girl taking over for her. And then start her new job next Monday. Giving herself no time off in between. And? No earned vacation for several months at the new job, which means no time off for a long time to come.

I could just smack myself. I could totally karate chop my stupid self in my stupid face.

I told my boss this morning that I'm probably not going to show up on Thursday because I really need a day off and I don't want it to be Friday because that's when everyone here is throwing me a going-away happy hour. I'm not missing that shit. And when I told him, he just stared at me and I could practically hear his thoughts... "She has to train the new girl, she cannot take a day off."

Well fuck that shit, asshole. I have two weeks of vacation built up here and deserve at least one day. Even though it means one less day of training my replacement. Bitch can figure it out her damn self. You people treated me like crap and refused to give me pay raises for over four years now. I hope my replacement sucks. So there.

*sticks tongue out*
*raises fists to the sky*



Damn, I'm tired.

It's times like this that it's perfectly acceptable and expected that you pop a squat on your desk.

Do what I do:

Cardboard cutout.

You're welcome.

Anonymous said...

It's called, "Call in sick tomorrow and Wednesday."

Then go drink.

For me.

P.S. I'm making a cardboard cutout of me right now... My students are dumb. They won't notice.

Tony said...

I was also a replacement for the person that was training me for my job. He was kind of a it's okay for you to be a jerk to this replacement of yours.

Lindsay said...

You should TOTALLY take off Thursday.

And how f'in appropo - my word verification for today is "Quity".

Kim said...

You're not surfing porn all day?

Steam Me Up, Kid said...

You definitely can't take Friday off because that's the day you're training new girl on how to make your drunk face. Right??

Houston said...

I do that kind of crap too (care too much).

It amazing how bosses can't understand why you aren't loyal to them to the point of death even as you are bending over backwards to kiss their ass.

Here at PHONECO we have 7 (SEVEN) people providing support for the entire f-ing US and Canada on our phone systems. Does anyone give two shits that we are getting our nuts squeezed in the vice? HELL NO!

You go girl! Sounds like you need to develope a horrible case of "Don't give a shit" and not show up again until Friday since your old boss "Turd Fergeson" can't figure out that you are the best employee EVAH!



If my boss reads this, I forgot to lock my PC and someone else wrote this as an elaborate hoax to screw me over Sir!

Megs said...

DEFINITELY take Thursday off. Fight the guilt! You have no reason to feel bad.

My word verification is mulevil. I think that means "Don't be a responsibility mule," and also that its evil to make you feel bad about taking one lousy day off.

DevilsHeaven said...

I hope you get paided out for those 2 weeks of vacation!!

Sarah said...

I want to give you a hug.

An obviously too long, too emotional bear hug, with a few tears and a couple of hair strokes.

Lickety Splitter said...

If I go four years without a pay raise, you will be my new role model. It's been two years. I'm busy counting.

Jayme said...

You should train her to do stuff wrong.

Cassie said...

I like the cardboard cutout idea.

mossum said...

I like Jayme's idea.

Just.Kate said...

I say you blink out of existence then call up all your co-workers on Friday and yell, "Meet you at McGee's*, bitches!"

*Or whatever your bars are named in Texas. Miguel's? Pedro's?**

**I can make these jokes because I'm Mexican by injection.

miss. chief said...

Yeah! Damn the man. Fight the power!

Chris said...

What are they going to do, fire you? Have one on me.

Ed said...

You're like Employee Of The Month.

Only half that.

Take the rest of the day off on me.

P.S. I just now got your and Steamy's comment on my blog. I wish I had grammar context checker on my PC. I'm a little slow on Monday's.

Kurt said...

You should punch him in the dick and yell "Diplomatic Immunity!!!" because you are such a loyal employee that no jury would ever find you guilty.

Congratulations too. You deserve all the money.

Mama Wheaton said...

Take the day off what are they going to do fire you?

otherworldlyone said...

When I quit my last job they took me out to dinner the night before my last day. I didn't show up the next morning. HA! Bitches!

Good for you! Take Friday off too. Throw new girl under the bus.

Fragrant Liar said...

Good for you, training the new girl. But take your days off, starting tomorrow, and just show up Friday night for happy hour. Your co-workers will completely have your back, cuz they know what a dick the boss is anyway.

Enjoy your days off!

Vic said...

Congratulations on getting the hell out of there, Miss Y.

I could tell them you have pink eye, if you want.

just making my way said...

Screw 'em!

I say that so cavalierly, but I would totally be doing the same thing you are.

But you should take Thursday off. And come in late on Friday too.

*G*R*U*N*T*I*L*D*A* said...

Don't feel so bad...sometimes I could spend all day sticking my tongue out at myself in front of the mirror...and enjoy it!

Joanna Jenkins said...

I love that you are not missing the happy hour farewell!

Have a great THURSDAY and don't worry about the job. Look at it this way-- You take the day off-- New girl does the job-- She asks you what she doesn't know on Friday. makes sense to me.


Mel Spillman artwork said...

totally take both days off, but show up for happy hour party and be all like "oh, was I supposed to work Thursday and Friday? my bad"

then be sure to get really drunk and sit next to new girl so you can tell her all of the scoop she needs to survive by singing that song from Hee Haw...

"were not ones to go round spreadin' rumors,
really were just not the gossipin' kind. no you"ll never hear one of us repeatin' gossip, so you better be sure and listen close the first time"
