Hot and Cold

How many of us are going to write how frigging HOT it is now? This is Canada! This is supposed to be autumn!

I’m pissed off. I was supposed to work 4:00 to 9:00 today and tomorrow. Tonight is a stag and doe for a co-worker and its on my way home from work so I thought “at least that will make me go. I can grab a nap before work and I don’t have to get up early.”

Yesterday my boss phoned and said the new (lazy) girl has a bad back and can’t work all weekend would I work noon to 8:00 both days. Of course I will but I’m pissed off. By the end of that shift I will just want to go home.

And it’s hot out. Stinking awful hot. Too hot to take my break in my car so I’ll have to sit in that freezing cold lunchroom with the music and announcements and people talking over that.

Not only that, I woke up before 6:00 a.m. and couldn’t get back to sleep. There will be no nap. I’ll drive to work in my hot car (no air-conditioning), get a sweaty crotch from my polyester pants and walk into a freezing cold store. At least the bakery will be just right.

I wanted to talk about my visitor who talked, solid for two days. And I had another run-in with the thief who stole from me. But I’m too hot under the collar to write about that now. I’ll have lots of days off next week….. I hope.
