My coworker insulted a part of my body today. Then a few minutes later told me I was being
“Spicy” with her. Do people just not realize they are being rude or what? My doctor told me that I need to stick up for myself and not let people walk all over me. Plus I wasn’t being rude to her I just wasn’t being all that friendly. This was about 10 minutes after she was rude to me. So not an hour or something.

Update to a previous rant of mine. I finally got my Xanax this morning. It’s the same as it was before .5 twice a day. He gave me two refills. I trusted him. But yeah he was being rude. But at least I don’t have to deal with it now.

Why am I here? Not in the philosophy of life type of way, but my job. How did I land here? Let us rewind the clocks just a little, shall we? 9 years ago, I was a stay at home mom with three sons. On the brink of divorce and on the near eve of my mother's passing. I had taken on a part time evening job several months prior for the intention of opening up my own bank account. And to show the courts that I intented to try to remove myself from this nasty circumstance.
It was agreed upon that I would get my mother's vehichle. My ex doesn't drive and our previous vehichle wound up with a frozen engine from a loose screw post oil change. Yay fun. No chance for a line of credit and I certainly wasn't gainfully employed.
Mom passes away. Her husband decided to reneg but would sell me for a couple of grande an old clunker whose engine reeked of its final stage. **** off.
Public transportation was a far superior option.
Her memorial service, I fell asleep on the couch. Wake up to my ex shaking me, bruising my arms and yelling at me. At this stage of the divorce there was no getting him to leave. Restraining order number 2 came out of that one. Of course he hired an attorney. We didn't live under the same roof after that.
A couple of months later divorce.
And he wouldn't watch the kids one night and a sitter I could not get. Lost my job and was able to collect unemployment. Child support had kicked in that winter before mom passed.
So I sat there scanning the help wanted as well as going site by site to businesses to see what could come out of it.
There's many more details left out, but I'm distracted by the notification of a gram update.
I looked at the municipal job openings section. There was admin but oh the hours and conflict of half day preschool and elementary school hours-still no car. Was on the daycare waitlist which later showed up a day late and buck short. Then there was where I am. Could walk there at the time. Hours were ideal but needed a sitter to get two of my sons on the preschool bus..the school helped adjust time of school to help. They helped where they could.
I eventually saved up for a used car. I haven't dealt with kids or job until that snarky remark this year. When there is no conflict. This year was harder because the communities were rocked by gas lines then major construction but that part is over so...
Why am I here? To keep myself from being a bored wealthy housewife or because it pays bills? I've had about enough of condescending attitudes.

So I have written about my strict parenting before - and the successes my adult children have become as a result.

Both a rant and a vindication this morning. It seems the very mother who threatened me with calling social services on me claiming my parenting style was cruel (she had problems with my holding them responsible and accountable) called my son this morning to plead with him to give her own son a job. Sheesh. Be a parent. This kid is 27 now and apparently mom still does everything for him. Gotta like my own kid who I understand said, "Call me when he has experience."

*small rant*
I might go to a school expo event tomorrow, but I probably cancel it. It is the worst event handling that I've ever been. The registration process is complicated, lack of information, awful customer service, and I haven't received my ticket yet from last month registration. Seeing how bad the ticket handling is, I guess the main event would be worse.

Sick of wasting time having to put make up on before I go out. If I get up late, I have little enough time as it is, I could do without this. I actually have no interest in make up, fashion, etc. But because everyone tells me I'm ugly, I need it. I feel like I'd be committing some sort of horrendous crime by going outside with no make up.

The really stupid thing is, the make up doesn't make me pretty, or attractive or anything. I am still ugly, I still get jeered at. So what is the point? I feel that the make up at least makes me look like a woman (one of the things I get is that I look like a man). It makes me feel slightly better about myself.

But I feel deluded because I'm sure, to everyone else it's not making much difference. And why should I bother to please them? Why should I waste time for them? I have no control over what my body (face) looks like, this is how I was born (ugly). It shouldn't be my problem if people are offended by my appearance, which means nothing to them.

I know all of this but still, I can't even think about going outside without make up.

Was a thought about work last night. Last contract, I think last or the one prior, there was much to do about the predecessor in my current position. The gripe was, she never covered shifts-noone knew her true job function up until then. The gripe was that she didn't show up to work in uniform-whoopsie.
Funny, I show up in uniform and do coverages. But this year-- with coverages is the gripe that I'm covering and not available to complete beck and call or that time priorities and such causes finer not seemingly significant in the bigger picture to take a backseat.
What's it going to be? Cannot have it both ways, ya know?

Edit to add: I noticed something that my boss started adding to her communications recently..."I hope to be able to get to this..*insert task*..." Good one, Boss!!

Everything is going wrong today. I already had a problem I thought I had fixed, or at least was fixing, but nope. An then I get more thrown at me. And to make it even worse I got up late today because I was having shameful daydreams (which I wrote about in another thread). Things are bad enough without me making things worse for myself like this!

The lady in HR can take a running jump for her comments on my sick leave. Serve her right.

Something I need to stop doing: When I'm talking to someone, I don't wait until they've finished before I start talking. I just talk over them. I know this wrong, but it's a bad habit and just seems to happen. Then afterwards I realise and am angry with myself for doing it AGAIN. The jobcentre sent me to this stupid jobsearch thing where I had to talk to someone and I did it about 3 times there, all automatically. I was getting so frustrated.

Now I know my mum does this all of the time, always has, and that might be where I got it from, but that's no excuse. She obviously doesn't realise it's rude and wrong to do it, I do so I need to stop. But the thing is I don't talk to people very often to "practice" keeping my mouth shut. My next chance will be next week when I go to the jobsearch thing again, but I'll probably forget. I need to remember, and try really hard to shut up and wait until I'm asked to answer. It is not so important that I have to interupt them.
