Fuck today.

Post by Bork » Fri Oct 28, 11:11 2016

Today is seriously not my day. I tried to blow dry my hair, because maybe showing up at work every single day with wet hair isn't the most professional thing ever? And now it's frizzy and floofy and stupid and driving me crazy. And still wet because I don't know how to fucking use a hair dryer. Apparently.

And then I was trying to bring milk to work, but the milk I have at home is open so I didn't want to just toss it in my bag and instead put some in a travel thermos and tossed that in my bag. AND THE FUCKING TRAVEL THERMOS LEAKED AND ALL THE MILK SPILLED INTO MY BAG SO I PROBABLY SHOULD HAVE JUST DUMPED IT IN THERE TO START WITH. Milk in my bag, milk in my sunglasses case, milk all over my wallet and headphone case... aaaaaaaand no milk for my coffee.

Both of my fantasy teams are turning into complete disasters. Between injuries and byes, I think I have maybe half a team starting. This is going to be the worst week ever.

Work is kind of fucking overwhelming. I was recently put entirely in charge of this really big project that I had been splitting with someone else, which is nice and exciting, but I'm no longer splitting it because the person I'm splitting it with let things get massively fucking behind. So now I have to try and get things caught up without getting behind in other areas, and without letting my other studies get behind too.

AND EVERYONE IS GETTING MAD AT ME. Jesus CHRIST people. I don't work at the lab, I don't have any control over anything that they do, and I don't have special access to sample statuses or results. Stop harassing me for results, and stop demanding that I get you information. Chill the fuck out. Also, stop asking me dumb questions that are clearly addressed IN THE FUCKING PROTOCOL. READ THE DAMN PROTOCOL AND ASK ME ABOUT THINGS THAT DON'T MAKE SENSE - THERE ARE HELLA THINGS THAT MAKE ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE, DON'T WASTE MY TIME BECAUSE YOU'RE TOO FUCKING LAZY TO READ. And stop asking me to confirm this and that. Fuck you. And don't call me and be a condescending fucking asshole. I more than understand what "the tumor was fully removed" means. Maybe try properly punctuating your replies, because "No tumor removed" is really fucking fundamentally different than "No, tumor removed" FUCKING ASSHOLE.

And everything just sucks. I still really like this dude at work, which is fucking ridiculous because he rejected me fucking AGES AND AGES AND AGES AGO and JFC why can't I just let shit go and move on??? But he's just seriously so awesome and funny and smart... but I'm a stupid, fat little shit who spills milk in bag and has dumb frizzy hair, and it's not like he'd ever be interested in me even if we didn't work together.

Since I'm bitching about things that bother me at work, I think it's massively fucked up that cancer patients have to forgo treatment, or discontinue treatment early, because insurance doesn't approve things. Fuck those money-grubbing, heartless assholes.

Well shit. That just blows all around. You may need to call in the cavalry later today. And by "call in" I mean "order". And by "the cavalry" I mean "shots". Hope you find something disposable you can burn to vent off some from the crapfest of a day you're having.

I'm sorry, Bork. Would you like an Internet hug? Because there's a hug here with your name on it.

Fuck today?

Truth be told I am a 20-30 year old virgin and I doubt I will even have the ability to fuck today, let alone any day. I will probably die alone in a small compartment somewhere never experiencing what love is like. I rue the day I was ever born.

That sounds really stressful and all of that really sucks. Being at the mercy of other people's stupidity is such a frustrating and infuriating experience. It should be obvious to everyone with a brain in their heads that if you don't work in the lab, you have no control over how fast the results come in. When people complain to me or get on my case about things I can't affect, I've started just bluntly saying "I really have no control over that" because how dumb can you be? People with no communication skills who try to make it out that YOU'RE the dumb one suck, also. Just because they know what they mean doesn't mean anyone else knows what the hell they are talking about.

I agree with you that it's fucked that cancer patients can't get the treatment they need because of insurance companies. I can't imagine how anyone can be so heartless as to let people's lives hang in the balance like that. Seriously, fuck those guys.

I agree. It's like the feeling of being too poor to afford a car, so you find yourself riding in someone else's car. And there is an active volcano erupting and they are driving 40 miles per hour the bare minimum of the speed limit. And you yell at them to go faster and they won't go faster, they are absorbed with the dogma of obeying the exact rules of the speed limit and it is that overwhelming feeling of your life being in the hands of an idiot. And your entire fate and well-being being wholly determined by some idiot. And that is what bothers me about human society.

Hmmmm. That probably would, actually... I am definitely going to try that next time, because I can totally just email someone back and be like "yep, that's what I said." But I think what really bothers me is that it's just such a copout and deferring of responsibility.

It's also annoying as fuck when people email me about something, then call before I have time to respond, and then still expect an email back. Like, pick one or the other. Please only harass me about something ONCE.

That's not a cop-out, it's making them summarize the work you just did in explaining things.

As anyone who teaches knows, doing that will make it stick in their heads longer. ;) So really it's good teaching theory.
