Today has been just an absolutely terrible day. Not like terrible as in loss of job or anything tragic just the type of day where you do everything right and you get nothing back in return. Vanbergs likened my day similar to Jack Bauer’s “Day 4″ of “24″. Jack did everything he thought was right. He helped everybody, went beyond the call of duty, and did more for our country then anybody will ever know. In the end…he was totally f’ed over and betrayed by everybody. Today I feel similar…
I will start with my first bout of bad luck first. Recently I have agreed to work countless extra hours though the next few weeks and months. Also I need to work third shift Christmas Eve/Christmas Day and New Years Eve/New Years Day. I recently came into posession of two Tickets to Disturbed in Battle Creek the day after Thanksgiving. Last week I put in a PTO request to have the day before Thanksgiving and the day after Thanksgiving off. Along with that request I sent an e-mail VOLUNTEERING to be on call for the weekend before Christmas. After all the goodwill i’ve shown to my employeer and fellow co-workers I didn’t think I would have a problem getting any days off I needed to go to the concert. Also this request was put in over five weeks in advanced of the date.
Come to work today getting an e-mail saying my PTO for Friday was not approved, thus I have to work and miss Disturbed. ugh
I come home tonight and have a very nice Spaghetti dinner with vanbergs. While fuming over “The Disturbed Curse” aka somebody always gets screwed over for a Disturbed concert. Vanbergs injured himself at a Disturbed concert while Taproot was playing concert thus MISSING disturbed. Vanberge had to travel for work to Chi-town thus MISSING Disturbed. Vanlandw put in for PTO five weeks before the event and couldn’t get the day off thus MISSING Disturbed. I guess it was just my turn….
OK a little off topic, while sitting down watching Mythbusters I got a text message. I replied to said text message and was going to put my phone away in my bag. My bag was open so I kinda just tossed my phone nonshalantly into the opening. APPARENTLY my phone bounced off the chair the bag was resting on and plummeted into full glass of soda. My cell phone that had four months to last before getting a new one is ruined. I spent $270 dollars on that phone new becuase of getting screwed over on a warranty issue is totally worthless.
If anybody has an extra old cell phone that would work with the verizon network they would be willing to give me please PLEASE think about letting vanlandw borrow it for awhile. I really can’t stomach buying a $300 dollar phone right now
