I'm just angry about general stuff

We are a little behind on some bills - nothing major or dire - but stuff is a few weeks late. I try to budget us as best as possible, and everyone gets paid in some way, shape or form, but the big companies just make me angry. We'll get a few calls, and I talk to the CSR who makes notes about the payment in progress, blah, blah, blah and all seems to end well on that phone call. Well, I leave for a few hours to take care of errands, come home, and find 30 different call attempts on my caller id. Then the phone rings a few minutes later and it's the credit card company with some rude asshole on the other end who proceeds to hang up on me midsentence.

I am so pissed off because I made over $200 in payments last week to these guys and every record I have available to me shows that payment has been received. Yet these assholes still harrass us. Hang up on us. Act like we're a couple of deadbeats. The only time where I've had a civil conversation with anyone there is when I've called in to them and tracked someone down on my own time. I sent an email and left 3 voice mails to supervisors - but I guarantee that no one will respond, just like in the Best Buy incident last year.

Which brings me to my next state of pissed off.
I am so stressed out that I am not sleeping. I feel fat (well, I am fat but being sick doesn't help) and I am tired of taking drugs to cure my cough, cold, allergies, cold sores, and chronic headaches. I'm not a hypochondriac by any stretch of the imagination because I HATE going to the dr. and I never call in sick unless I am near death. Proof in point - I went to a 6-day business conference last year in Houston while in a state of near-death... turns out I had pneumonia and bronchitis, did 2 cycles of antibiotics and still went to work and to this conference because it was not something I could miss.Also, my store was so understaffed that even when I attempted to take a day or 2 off to rest, I still was called into work. I had to be masked for 6 weeks to keep my germs to a minimum. So all in all I was sick for 3 months and to be quite honest - I have not fully recovered after almost a year.

On the upside -

Chinese New Year is right around the corner.

Ganked from tabbytuxedo's blog

This is hilarious.
I'm glad I've reactivated comments, because I'd like y'all to contribute, please!

"....So to distract myself from my technology woes, I present you with this meme that I've picked up. I actually saw this and played along on two other blogs, Laura's and Jess's. I'd love to hear what you guys come up with! It's lots of fun.

If you read this, if your eyes are passing over this right now, even if we don't speak often, please post a comment with a COMPLETELY MADE UP AND FICTIONAL MEMORY OF YOU AND ME. It can be anything you want--good or bad--BUT IT HAS TO BE FAKE. When you're finished, post this on your blog and be surprised (or mortified) about what people DON'T ACTUALLY remember about you. posted by tabbytuxedo @ 12:59 PM..."

Enabling comments again

I've decided that that little shit b****buster can kiss my ass.
I ain't afraid of her and she needs to get a life.

some idiot is posting filth on my blogs

...and I know who it is. Which is why I have turned off comments for a while. It's a shame that there are immature, troubled individuals who can't handle the truth and need to project by expressing themselves in an inappropriate way. I hope they find inner peace and pray for them to get their act together... so much rage, so much anger (and illiterate to boot)
