A bad case of the "Mondaies"

I started to post this yesterday and decided to go to bed early. I saved the post so those of you who think this appeared out of nowhere and was not here last time you read the blog, you are right :-)

ARGH! Today SUCKED! Where do I start? I guess when i woke up at 6:45 and got in the shower like nothing was wrong. Only in the shower did I realize I needed to be at work (30 minutes away) by 7:30 not 8:00. It was not my first day of this schedule but apparently I did not sleep well during the night so I was very out of it. As I was getting out of the shower mom calls to me that she can not find my keys. I thought about it for a minute and realized "OH SHIT! I left my keys in my dad's truck when we went somewhere this weekend" Dad had left at 5 am to go down to work in Stockton. There was no way to get into my car. DAMNIT! Now mom was mad at me and had to get dressed and drive me to work (man if that doesn't make you feel stupid then the 30 minute lecture surely will!) On top of that my cell phone had mysteriously stopped working the day before so I had no way to use it. Halfway to work I realized that my badge (and keycard) were locked in my car. When I got to work I had to go through the front entrance (farthest away from my desk) and wait while the receptionist tried to track down someone who knew me. Finally did and managed to get to my desk by 7:40 (have to start taking calls at 7:45) giving me only 5 SHORT minutes to get my computer booted up and all my programs started. Monday at work had started off crappy for everyone apparently, including our members. I had some of the strangest calls to date (ok so its only been 4 days...give me a break). I managed to get ahold of a kia dealership who said they could make me a replacement key w/the vin # if I had proof of ownership. Downside, the dealer was in YUBA CITY (about 45 minutes away). They were only open until 5 pm so mom and I hauled ass to Yuba City. Unfortunately the directions that they gave me (not willingly mind you) over the phone were unclear. So I called them from Yuba City. The bimbo at the front desk gave me directions (after trying to transfer me to a voicemail in service 3 times). When those directions turned out to be wrong (and we managed to find a place to turn around in the middle of rush hour traffic) it was 5:15. When I called back to clarify the directions the lady had the nerve to say to me "we are getting ready to close," to which I exploded that after driving from Chico and being told the wrong directions if they valued their lives I would suggest making me my key. We managed to get there with 5 minutes to spare. The guy was very nice, however, he couldn't figure out how to make the key! He said that he would rather just sell us the key and have us go to a locksmith (which was closed for the evening) so we left there (after my mom accused me of losing her cell phone which was in her pocket causing me to have to go back in to search the store for her cell phone.....but thats another story nevermind) and decided we had to stop for dinner. We were defeated in our quest to obtain "the key" and mom would have to drive me to work again tomorrow. After a nice dinner at Red Robin we decided to try our luck with Verizon. We were expecting to have the wrong directions but managed to find it in the mall. Verizon was actually very helpful and I managed (without wasting too much time there) to get a brand new phone and keep my charged battery. Unfortunately, all items actually IN the phone were lost. They said something about a virus from text messages which I didn't even know could happen. So in short, I want to know which one of you did it because I have some words for you (just kidding of course!) Anyway from there I was ready to go home when mom spotted "The Avenue" and decided she wanted to go shopping. Being the leach that I am (with no good clothes from work as I am often reminded) I managed to walk away with a great deal on some new duds (did I just refer to my clothes as duds? Somebody shoot me!) We started home at about 8 pm...both mentally and physically exhausted with little accomplished. I still had homework for both of my online classes to do, and I was still marveling over how "drama" continually hunts me down and finds me no matter how well I think I hide from it. I am continually finding myself in the debt of others (mainly my mother of course :-)) and I don't know how to fix it. And to put the topper on my day my cat actually talked back to me for the first time in known history. Sure in the past she's been annoying but when I wouldn't let her outside when we got home she ran down the hall, sat in the doorway, gave me the evil eye, and proceeded to meow in odd grumbly tones. I was in shock. I finally gave in and let her out then she wouldn't come in. I did manage to finish my homework for the two classes and get to bed at a decent hour. I thought that the quote from "Office Space" (the title of this blog) was an apt description of the day I had yesterday. It can only get better from here (damn...I think I just jinxed myself!)

Sounds like a rough day, but I love the Office Space reference in your title! That's such a wonderful movie! Hope Tuesday was better and the rest of the week follows suit!
