Working For A Living...

Ugh... what a day...
I got to work and my boss was being a pain in my backside. I had trouble finding a parking spot and was 3 minutes late. She looked at the clock to kind of silently remind me that I needed to get there on time. I didn't say anything but I did let her know that I stayed almost an hour after my shift on Saturday to help some of the other people get aquainted with the new computer system. My boss didn't know and didn't say much. She asked what time did I leave and I said I didn't know and that it didn't matter. I was working to help out and that I didn't need to sign up for OT or anything. She offered to let me leave early but I told her that wasn't why I did it. There are still issues with the new software. The bugs have yet to be worked out. I worked my full shift and she didn't say anything and that was okay with me. I was a little annoyed about the whole thing but it didn't change my thoughts about my boss... unlike most of my co-workers, I genuinely am very fond of my boss. She's pretty cool. I get along with her most of the time. I can feel a very nasty migrane coming on. I'm trying to fight it but that remains to be seen.
I've had a lot on my mind lately. Most of it has nothing to do with work, play, the ex gal pal, the family... nothing like that at all. It's all in my head and I know that I've got to somehow get my poop in a group. I'm stressed but I know that I can survive it... That might be the reason for the migrane headache... a stress headache. There is no time off now that the hockey season is over. This weekend, is the opening kickoff for the Toledo Spitfire Women's football team. They play their season opener this Saturday night against the Erie (PA) Illusion... We were awful last year and I don't know what to expect this season. Oh well... it should be interesting. I'll be broadcasting it on both TV and audio online... I just hope the team is better than last year. We went 0-8 last season and lost by an average of about 50 points... Let's hope things are a bit better this year.

Lol! Your post reminds me of that old bumper sticker...Bosses are like diapers, always on your @ss and full of sh*t...Being a working stiff is quite the life, isn't it? Sorry to read you're going through something. Whatever it is, I hope it works out for you, for the best.

You know I have noticed from my work that the boss does not really notice how much overtime you put in. But, leave a minute early and you are in trouble. Good thing you reminded her of you good intent with the overtime you put in. As for a stress headache, I found sleep to be the best help.Sleep it off!
