i was cutting up some veggies this weekend for this 4th of july bbq thing my ma was doing. anyway somehow i managed to completely slip and cut the shit out of my finger. i was bleeding and looking for bandaids and OF COURSE my ma didnt have any around the house (seems like we never have anything we need when we actually need them). so i called my ma up and i’m like “hey i just cut the shit outta my finger can you buy some bandaids?” and so sure enough she comes home and guess what fucking bandaids she comes home with????? HMM???
no i’m not shitting you. and i was like “ma wtf are these” and shes like
“OHH YAH I THOUGHT YOU’D THINK THOSE ARE WERE SO NEAT. I couldnt decide if you’d like those or the Hello Kitty ones better but I thought you’d think these were cooler. I know you think skateboarding is so cool.” she kept emphasizing the word cool for some reason…
fuck i wanted the hello kitty ones those are at least cute, nahmean? these are ugly as fuck. but there you go. i feel like a dick wearing this bandaid btw. but i cant complain too much at least my ma put in some thought into picking out bandaids for me even though i think she was overreaching a bit…
my boss paula is in her 50s and she’s been with her partner, marilyn, since they were in highschool. for the past few months marilyn has been going through several blood tests because doctors noticed she had high liver enzymes (whatever the fuck that even means). marilyn just called the office to tell paula the results of her liver biopsy she had done last week and it turns out she has liver cancer. paula was hysterical and i feel awful too because i’ve met marilyn several times since i’ve worked here and i like her very much…i honestly feel awful for paula i just didnt know what to say when she told us, you know how when someone tells you news thats so bad you just cant do anything but stare and them and blink and not say anything? she was crying and karen & i told her she should go home and be with marilyn and take the afternoon off…i feel so bad i want to cry too but i feel like that would be a bit dramatic or something. it sounds like they caught the cancer quite early and that there is a full chance of recovery. However the icing on the cake truly is the fact that marilyn got laid off from her job about a year ago and has yet to find a new one and has been living off unemployment. to make matters worse, her unemployment AND medical benefits will end in september. what is she supposed to do then? i cant understand this. i dont know what to do i want to go home and go back to sleep and hang out with my dog and pretend none of this shit ever happened.
first world problems part 2
yesterday i waited around all day for the maintenance man to get over and fix my a/c…its fucking 100 degrees out and i couldnt take it anymore…at one point it was 90 degrees inside and the dog was panting and drooling everywhere it was sooo hot! FINALLY he shows up 4 hours after i called…then it takes him 2 hours to “fix the problem”. and it was working…then i left and i got back around 9ish…and it was broken. now its broken again and today its hotter than it was yesterday…god i want to die. its miserably hot in here.
