It's a bad week

March 14th, 2012 at 06:16 pm

And it's only Wednesday.

My boss is leaving tomorrow. I have to take over her duties, and so far, my computer and/or the software is not cooperating. There is a certain task I must do -- it has many steps and I CANNOT get through it without the program hanging up. I just want to scream.

I learned that the new reporting structure, which I do NOT like, will be permanent. I will always report to Mean Girl now.

And then -- and then -- I found LICE on my head! I did the treament yesterday and washed all my bedding and vacuumed the whole house. I think I've taken care of it -- of course, I'll have to do the treatment again in a week to eliminate any -- euuweeuuww -- eggs. I've never had lice before and this was a huge and unwelcome surprise.

On the positive side, the weather is lovely -- so nice it's surreal. But I'm too depressed to enjoy it. Ugh.

Oh. I guess I should make this money-related. The lice treament was $14.85; I got the generic.

AND -- I accidently left my purse at home this morning and it didn't even phase me. I'm so used to no-spend days it wasn't an issue not to have my wallet. I was only upset because I had to drive without my license.

    Yuck, lice. The grandchildren?

    Yuck, lice! I've had it a few times (mom's a babysitter) and it's such a nasty surprise. Plus it's such hard work to get rid of, and then you're paranoid for weeks afterward that they came back.

    And, yuck for having to report to Mean Girl. One of my supervisors (not direct, thank gawd) is just awful; I've heard horror stories from my friend who does report direct to him. I just try to stay out of his way and hide my distaste as well as I can.

    You'll get through. Maybe after having to deal with lice AND figuring out the new tasks AND the mean girl, just having her to deal with in a couple weeks will be a breeze...

    Yikes! Hopefully it can only get better.

    Oh I am SO sorry for all the crapp-y-ness.
    Especially the lice! Comb. Comb. Comb.

    Uck, lice, bad acting computers and awful bosses. But if you give the lice to Mean Girl it could rescue the week. Big Grin

    I hadn't thought of that! I should have save one for her!

    Just a little note. I am THAT entertaining at work also. And I'm all about the frugal in all things. How simple would it be to buy an ordinary black comb, comb your hair, stick it in her purse?
