It’s Saturday again! Finally. There were moments this week when I didn’t think it would ever end. I’m back at work after a way too brief summer break. And I’m not just whining about having to go back after having nine weeks off, not really.
There have been massive changes in my workplace. The management has been completely replaced. And over half of my co-workers are gone. Many who stayed have been shifted around to other positions.
Mind you, I hated my job before. Now? Now, it’s all, “I know you’ve done it one way in the past, we do it MY way from now on.” And the ‘get while the getting is good’ ship has unfortunately sailed.
So I’m left thinking, how is it that I (and most of us, if I’m not mistaken) spend such a huge percentage of our lives doing something that makes us miserable? I supposed it comes down to necessity and the choices we’ve made. But sometimes I just want to stand on a table and scream out profanities. Which, of course, I can’t do because we have a mortgage and bills and…
So instead, I believe I’ll just calmly say, “Have a nice day.” Only y’all will know what I really mean.
I believe I’ll pour myself an adult beverage and flesh out my five-year plan for making my escape from hell. Mr. R. is with me all the way. Let’s raise a glass for Tommy and Gina, who never backed down. And may we be more like them.
In other news, Green Day has a brand new song out, which accounts for the bonus track. It’s not really a quiet little date night song. But it’s pretty awesome, nevertheless.
Happy Saturday night!
