i need a vacation

I need a vacation. That is all.

Wait... that is not all. I will be using this post throughout the day to vent.

11:45am - feeling apprehensive. one of the schedulers at work is leaving to work elsewhere, and i have been asked to take on her work. however, management is a bit behind the ball on the nuts 'n bolts of the situation, so i will merely be covering part of this scheduler's work for some unknown period of time. i hate it when this happens. the other scheduler's clients will probably feel confused. i'm hoping i will not be. i don't like agreeing to things like this, because i always always always draw the short straw. a raise had been briefly mentioned. nothing has been hammered down. i am skeptical.

update:
2:06pm - the day is half over (thank gawd), and yet i feel i've only done one constructive thing today - and that was finding a stranger's drivers license and managing to get it returned to her. go me. now, i sit and wait. my billing: done. all my work orders: in system and ready to go. formal training for take-over work: to be dealt with tomorrow, i've been informed. i've been quiet today, hearing other people's tales of the weekend. i think i can safely say no one had as good a time as me.

update:
4:45pm -
kill me. i'm dying of boredom. is the day over yet? only an hour and fifteen minutes to go. why is today so slow? why is everybody so slow today? see, it's totally gonna pick up and then i'll be complaining "woe is me, i am soooo busy!" the human condition. the grass is always greener. an hour and fifteen. traffic. grocery store. i promised my father i'd replenish the house-supply of mountain dew. i need another one right. now. alas, i used up the last of my coinage on a can one hour and forty-five minutes ago. dammit who is calling me? don't they know that i'm busy writing a blog entry on how bored i've been all day? wtf!

things people have said

The alternative, having easily enough work to employ two or three full-time employees other than me, and having to do it all myself, is also not 100% fantastic. There MUST be a happy medium!

I wanna be Thelma...wait no, Louise...wait..no...shit, which one was Liza Minnelli?

I'm down for Mexico. We can hook up with my cousin in Puerto Escondido and surf and eat fish.
