Tying Up Loose Ends

I've got my fingers crossed that today will actually be a day off from work. My last post had me whining about working on Thursday because the boss decided he was sick.

I almost made it through Friday as well without working. I got home from babysitting my granddaughter about 5:00 pm and the boss calls to tell me he has to take his sick wife to the emergency room. So off to work I went again from 5: 45 to 9:00 that night. (She's pregnant and has a history of miscarriages so they go into panic mode when there's a perceived problem.) Thankfully everything turned out to be fine with her.

I haven't been around here much so here's an update on things that have been happening as of late, other than lots of work:

1) (ex) Worthless Co-Worker. We last left off with her fleeing her internet "spiritual husband" and coming back here. She stopped into work the night before Thanksgiving and I had a chance to marvel at her incredible ignorance once again. Seriously. Stupid. Woman.

God talks to her. Since she fled the "spiritual husband" she's been praying for answers to her "man" problems and God has spoken to her and told her what she needs to do. After she told me what God insisted she do I feel God really doesn't like her much.

Apparently she's supposed to forgive her "spiritual husband" and give him another chance, as long as he plays honest from now on. God told her he was still the one for her. So apparently the "spiritual husband" was on his way here to be with her over Thanksgiving and a new beginning.

I haven't seen her since but a sister of hers stopped in the store Saturday night and had plenty to say. Even as crazy and stupid as her whole family is they have this "spiritual husband" pegged (correctly) as a loser. They've all been trying to talk her out of this relationship to no avail. The kicker is, if they haven't talked her out of it, is that the ex Worthless Co-Worker still has the plane tickets to Israel and they fly out tomorrow with plans on getting married there.

This girl hasn't a shred of common sense.

2) I actually lost my temper at work yesterday. This rarely happens even when some douche bag customer annoys me. While I pretty much always say what's on my mind, I usually never raise my voice. I state what I've got to say in an even voice for the most part. My boss says its actually disarming that way. But there was nothing disarming about it yesterday. I'll probably give more details in the next post. I've got to get some crap done around here, and I've got to get around to your blogs and see what you folks have been up to lately.

(Plus I'm kind of fond of cliff hangers to torment you with.)

That ex-coworker is insane. That's all there is to it.

I'm glad Thanksgiving went well, and that things are moving positively with your daughter!

lol loved this!!! i loved that you said 'god doesn't like her much'

i'm waiting for the day when someone in a business i'm shopping at loses their temper with me, and i'm sure it will make a blog post, hopefully with a picture... if i lived in your area, i'm sure it wouldn't be you! :)

Or maybe god is going to use her as an example? I'd like to know how the deadbeat has a passport. HA! Can you see that scene in the airport?? :)

I am so glad to hear that your daughter is at home. She is in my thoughts.

Ex-worthless co-worker. dumb. that's all.

How the hell long do I have to wait for the cliffhanger. I hate those with a passion. errrr

Gail said...

Wonderful news about your daughter!

I thought, maybe, being short-handed, the boss might hire Worthless back!

Temper lost can never be found...I am being tested, too. It's the holiday season!

Because I know you just want One More Thing on your to-do list... I tagged you on an award the other day. But eh, if you get around to it, you do. If you don't, you don't.

SO glad to hear things have taken a turn for the better with your daughter.

WCW is a totally assbag! Can't wait to hear the update tomorrow when her 'spiritual husband' can't get through security, and they miss their flight!

Shame on you for leaving us with a cliffhanger! You don't have to resort to tricks to get us to come back. Don't you know some of us check in every day anyway? ;-)

Sarahf said...

That's good news about your daughter.
WCW is definitely talking to a different God.
And I can't wait to hear what sent the usually cool, clam JPT over the edge.

Putting on the popcorn now, I just know this is going to be a good story. Might even rival some of the ex co-worker episodes ;)

Glad to hear the good news about your daughter. Sounds like things are on the right track.
