All I have to offer is whinging!
I am still completely sick. My voice is a bit better but I have a lump in my throat AND WORST OF ALL I have passed this lovely gift on to the one and only, Mr Wonderful. I may as well kill myself now.
I am due to go to my other job tomorrow. I emailed my co-workers, subject line: OK WHO BREATHED ON ME? It must have been one of them! Well, I need someone to blame.
I need a break. I worked through this sickness. What is someone suppose to do, if it is their first day at a new job? You can’t call in sick can you? It is so hard though, because it is on the weekend, I only work with 2 other people and they can’t really replace you short notice. And today, it is still the same job but a new workplace. Whole new office and people to meet, new boss. I couldn’t really call in sick today either. I asked if I could go home, but was politely denied. ARGGhhhhh But GREAT NEWS descended upon me! I really like my new boss, I like my weekend boss too! My boss today was chatting to me about my entitlements! I feel so special, you have no idea. I feel a bit like I have won the job lottery! 1) I get penalty rates!!!! 2) I get a parking space!!!) 3) I am on set hours 4) I get a locker 5) I have nice bosses. p.s I can’t wait to check the bank account.
Also, went out to lunch with 3 other former co-workers, its as if we never left, just moved suburbs! We went to a cafe for lunch. Places like this piss me off. They are in the CBD but TAKE FOREVER to get the food out. You wait 40 mins for the food and then have to ask for take away and then eat it… well not sure.. I was in court so I couldn’t. SURELY they know that you get 1 hour for lunch. What a disappointment.
I don’t think I have given myself enough credit for getting this job. I was up there! I worked at this very workplace in 2006 and I met quite a few people there that had heaps more experience then me, back then and I met them again and they were not successful in the recruitment process. AWKWARD! One of them in particular wanted a certain job so bad, but my friend/co-worker got the job and had to tell him and he was ropeable. AWKWARD.
Mr wonderful BC (Before Cold) bumped up the arsenal in the fight against this cold. He made the minestrone out of stock I made before. I gave him instructions (whilst at work) He bought Benadryl dry cough syrup and now Diflam.
I am also shitty at city rail. Like umm HELLO is it 2010?? Do I live near the city????? Why the hell when I get the train station at 10 past 7, the next train to the city is 23 mins away????? Please explain. On Sunday I drove to this location from home and it took 19 mins (a little over the limit) and on the good old shitty rail, door to door = 85 mins!!!!!!!!!!! I also let shit like this get to me. once in a bad mood, I let it multiply. A loud mouth loser hops on the train and talks on her phone about her crap life and loser boyfriend and 15 kids! She also chows down on a SAUSAGE ROLL at ten to eight in the morning! DISGUSTING! I don’ t think there is anything worse you could eat. I really hate the smell of sausage rolls. They reek. I have been scarred from the time I was at the office and a co-worker, waltzes into work, stuffing one down and talking, gets a case of indigestion or something and then runs to the bathroom and VOMITS!!!!!! Lovely! She chucked the other half of the sausage roll in the bin under her desk (next to me) and the smell permeates into the office ALL DAY!!!! I wanted to gag!
Doesn’t matter, I have a parking spot now!!!
