Some days I'm more irritable than others. Yesterday was a high irritability day. Here are some of the things that caused my irritability yesterday...
My neighbor refuses to give me 6 more inches of parking room and I have to cram in between his truck and the bushes at the end of the lot. This requires me to turn my truck at an angle, drive into my parking space, and then straighten out. Normally this is not a huge issue, but this morning when it was VERY icy out, the wheels didnt want to cooperate. Is it really so much to ask to give me just a little more room?
The person who is supposed to be my (and about 10 other people's) SIOP coach, has never shown up to work. NEVER. They are going out to their other two sights and helping them, but not us. Today, all of the people who are supposed to have this person as a SIOP coach were told to get together for a quick meeting. How are we supposed to know if she's our SIOP coach, if she's NEVER come to our school and even done so much to introduce herself? And would it really be too difficult to come over to the school and introduce yourself?
I had to take my truck and drop it at the auto shop AGAIN. I took it over on Monday for an oil change and when I went to go pick it up at the end of the day it hadnt been done because they didnt have the parts they needed. Why would you schedule an oil change if you didnt have the parts that you needed?
The oil change was $210. Seriously?
My right big toe hurts. It's been hurting off an on for a few weeks and progressively getting worse. Doctor says that I either strained it or maybe over extended it while working out. He says just to lay off of it for awhile. How do you 'lay off' of a toe? I'm trying to lose weight here, doc, and you're telling me I cant workout for 4-6 weeks.
It drives me crazy when people start their sentences by saying they're not trying to do something that they are clearly doing. Like one person today at our inservice, "I'm not trying to point fingers, BUT". But you clearly ARE. Why start your sentence that way? It just puts everyone on the defensive.
Don't ask me a question and then disregard my answer. Or, worse yet, not even listen to my answer, by starting a conversation with someone else in the middle of my answer. If you didnt really want to know my answer, then WHY ASK?
Then there are other people to whom you ask a question, but they just go off on some other direction and dont even answer your question. Would it be so hard to just answer the question I asked?
I woke up with a sore throat that got worse as the day progressed. Seriously? I'm going to get sick again? I hope not.
So, when one of my colleagues dropped me off to go get my truck at the end of the day, he jokingly asked, "Do you want me to go in let them know that you're already an 8?"
Then, I went home and fell asleep on the couch for 4 hours. I didnt even eat dinner. I was so tired. I feel much better now, less irritable. I think I just needed some sleep.
