And sometimes, the day turns around [Apr. 14th, 2011|09:55 am]

So I started out the day getting halfway to work and realizing I'd forgotten my purse. And my little nearly out of gas light came on. Sigh. So, instead of getting to work early and getting a good head start, I had to drive home, get my purse, get gas and be late. Only to find that the meeting I had scheduled for 3pm on Friday had been changed to 8:30am on Friday. Which means the three reports I have to have finished for that meeting need to be finished TODAY. Today being one meeting after another. Awesome.

And just a few minutes ago I get called into my boss's office. And I trudged in, wondering what NEW project I had to get done in even less time.

But instead I got a promotion. So, I was WRONG. Awesome SANS scarcasm, my friends.

Yes. Not a "whoo-hoo, I'm buying a new car and my fall vacation in St. John will be awesome" but a "oh, thank goodness, as long as I'm careful, I can pay all my bills and start paying back the emergency/vacation/house renovation fund, which has taken a very, very serious hit.

And frankly, you could call me Assistant Flunky to the Undersecretary's Undersecretary, as long as you pay me for what I do.

Most importantly, I get to shed a whole category of "s**t I feel bitter and resentful about". Which is almost more important than getting a raise. Although American Express would beg to differ.
