What A Day!!!
I got up early to get the smog so I was finished by 9am, which gave me an hour to get to work. I normally hit traffic but today it was sooo horrible. It started backing up at Nordoff and for those who don't know the 405 that's about 4 miles from where it normally does. It was hot and my jeep as no AC so I'm sweating, sitting in traffic and it was miserable. It's times like that when I ask myself, why do I work so far away from where I live. But even with the bad traffic I got to work around 10:20.
Lot's to do today.. well everyday now that the show are starting to finish up. And as soon as I sat down problems started to happen. One issue was an actual mistake that I made but luckily it wasn't too bad and was fixable. Around lunch I needed a break and walked to a local food court. While there I got a call asking why I wasn't on this weekly chat (every week each department jumps on a conference call and goes over their status). Well I never got the email informing me of this so that is why I wasn't on this call. I then got a call from "someone" and they started to yell at me, saying it wasn't their responsibility to make sure I'm on the calls... blah blah blah.. Don't have a clue why they were attacking me but I didn't appreciate it and did everything in my power not to yell back. I too old to be yelled at. There is a way to talk to people and this wasn't the correct way. I'm on the verge of just walking, of course I would burn a few bridges but to be honest I don't care. Only thing that's keeping me here is loyalty to a few co-workers and if I quit I can't collect unemployment.
It's now 5pm and only have a few more hours left in the office but things seemed to have died down a bit. At least enough for me a breath and calm down from earlier events. So for now I'll stick it out.. only have another month and a half, but it's going to be a really hard and stressful month and a half... ugg!!
