i called in sick today, after having forced myself to go to work for many VERY long shifts, getting sicker and sicker, and having no voice, being dizzy as all hell, and wondering a couple of times if i really was going to pass out.

i'm amazed that they were shocked and angry when i officially DID call in sick, 6 hours before my shift. *shrug*

meh.

what i'm blowing out my nose is now a loverly color of ochre. dark yummy yellow. when it's not pink with blood, that is. maybe i SHOULD go to the doctor. can't take any deep breaths, because i'll erupt into a massive coughing fit.

and i have to get ready for meredith's visit.

my best friend from phoenix will be here tomorrow night, and i wouldn't have a chance to get things ready for her otherwise, having worked every single day over the last two weeks.

so neener. i'm home sick.

nanny.

nanny.

boo.

boo.

Your work sound like fuckers. :( And your icon is awesome, I loved that strip.

well, yanno, it's retail.

which means that while they're evil, they're not NEARLY as bitchy as fast food.

amazing, you would think that fastfood would really NOT want you to come in and hack and cough and sneeze and drool over everything!

Well, if you do go to the doctor, maybe you can get a note so they'll be happier. I wish there was some way you could work full time at just one job instead of working your ass of at two...

well, now that i have only one job, my health has definitely improved (amazing what getting lots of sleep does!), though i'm not exactly sure yet how that's going to effect my finances.

i just need to spend a bit smarter now!

i hope you feel better!! and i think it's funny that you have a friend named Meredith from Phoenix, because i have a friend named Meredith who (i think) lives in Phoenix too... somewhere in Arizona i'm sure.
Your ochre discription made me laugh... i thought of the art isle in Michael's and could in my mind think of exactly where that color of paint is, in both oil and watercolor... Aisle 17A... at least in my store

dayum, your store is big enough for a 17A? wow. i'm impressed! we have one of the smallest in the world, i'm thinking, we barely go up to aisle 14.

we go up to aisle 42.... 1-14 along the right wall as you walk in, framing and 15-24 along the back wall, 25-34 along the left wall, and 35-42 crammed in the middle as well as floral... we've got a huge store, but i've heard that there are even bigger ones.

egads. the manager at the one i worked (i keep trying to NOT say 'OUR manager' hee hee) was a stressball under normal circumstances and would make people cranky by just BEING there (though, in credit, she does a great job of making the store a good one for finances, appearance, etc.), during inventory... *shudder*

I might have already said this...

Your body has developed an alergy to work because you're working yourself to death!. I mean your hair has already fallen off!! Next it'll be your nose...
