Just A Whiney Moment  
Can I just say that I can't wait until the 14th of next month because I'm at my wit's end? Time to leave for Asheville just seems so far away. 

There are still not enough cashiers at work, the VPs are threatening to cut hours again, and the remodel is coming up faster and faster. Product knowledge is at an all time low and there's not enough time for University classes because we have twice the duties with half the staff, which makes everything virtually impossible, yet we still hear, "Get it done." They just took two of our best keyholders and transferred them to a store that didn't have them leaving us, the REGIONAL headquarters, short. And that's just work! *sigh*

I'm not even going to really touch on it too much because she reads this, but if it were possible and I thought I'd have a good time, I'd go on this vacation (that I need so badly I'm missing a paid week of work for it) alone. I've been waiting to go back to Asheville (where we were supposed to move last year) since 2005 and now she doesn't want to go and is all pouty because the stables we rode at before doesn't have Percerons anymore. That's it. After all the planning and saving, she doesn't want to go because they don't have the two horses we rode a year and a half ago. Sure, I'm sad; they were great horses, but... *GRRRRR!*

And because of that, the fact that she's in a blue funk, we're not working at the moment. Or getting along for that matter. Which is why I wound up alternately crying and singing along loudly to Breaking Bejamin and My Chemical Romance in the tub at 3:30 this morning.

I'm wrung out emotionally, frustrated, exhausted, needing to write, but all I can do is come home and try to work and read my reviews. How pathetic is that? *sighs disgustedly at self* I've never wanted to just be Lois more in my life, even with the life I gave her in LS. I'm going to go work on Famous Last Words alone for the moment and hopefully that will perk me up. It could always be worse.

I could be SV Lana. *snickersnort*

Thanks for putting up with the rant. I'm such a loser posting this here.

Oh, my twin! *massive hugs* and equally massive sympathy! I don't need to go on my own rant about how my job is undesierable right now, but your twin is seriously feeling your pain. The suckiest thing about working at a job you don't like is that sometimes you just have to deal with it for the time being. The only highlight are certain people who work there... and most of the time, that's not everyday because of your (or their) schedual. And I have to work with Mr. National Guard every morning next week.

Sympathy? Empathy?? Feel it, my twin! It comes in waves as visible as the ocean! : D

And you couldn't be SV Lana. 'Cause nobody likes her, but we all love you!

I'll give you some reviews to brighten your day a bit. Will that make you feel better? ; )

*hugs* Thanks, love. Last night wasn't much better at work, but the vacation situation has gotten better, thank God. And thank you so much for the reviews. The level of them has gone down again, so anything is greatly appreciated.

...is it the 14th yet? *watching the 'Kill the BDA' video again*

I never said I didn't want to go - who could not want to spend a week alone in a log cabin with you and a laptop computer? Hello, inspiration!

I'm just depressed because the horse they SWORE they would never sell - ever, at any price, so quit asking, Ms. Roy - wound up getting donated to therapeutic riding program. Granted, the Percherons will be fabulous for it, but I miss Dan. And there's no good riding in that area.

Plus I have been PMSing for about the last three days. And you know, with my already effed up brain chemistry, that me and PMS are a dangerous combination. Next mood swing, 6.5 seconds!

Anyway, we need to post the videos from last time. Especially that driveway. Yikes! It's like a 45 degree ascent with aswitchback, all gravel. My little suburban highway-drivin' Ford about had a coronary.

First of all you are NOT SV Lana. Dude, everyone is allowed to have a good rant once in a while. Besides I am a firm believer in the idea that if it's your LJ you can put whatever you want on/in it. Rant away - sometimes a good rant can work wonders.

And can I say it sounds like you're working retail? BEEN THERE, DONE THAT, HAVE THE BATTLE SCARS TO PROVE IT. It's almost always sucky - I mean working with the public within itself is always challenging and then retail management can and often does suck - and it can be draining. Again, been there, done that.

I hope things get better!

*much with teh huggles*

They will, they always do. I love my job, really, swear. It's just that the shortage of employees makes it all just sucky and cracktacular. *makes face* I just hate sounding whiney. Especially to my friends.

*much back with the huggles* BTW, thanks again for the link to smartbitches. Anissa and I spent a good two hours laughing at the Covers Gone Wild last night. Laughter really is the best medicine.

But...what about Mr. Pointy? *remembers that she's acting like Lana, raises eyebrow as she looks at Mr. Pointy* Wait, I see your...umm, point. Good idea.

Hey, Everyone needs a chance to rant now and again..Look at me, I think the past few posts have beena bout how lousy I feel, but at least now I'm not having to drug myself. Anyway I really hope that things look up for you guys and that it will work out for you to go on your Vacation and move there when you can.

I miss LS, but can satisfy myself with going back and reading from square one which I've thought about doing. I like your version of this, I know I have said that but to be honest until you wrote it I was kind of burned out just a little on the older Superman verse but for some silly reason this story has gotten me back into that verse again, and even buying version four so I could see Lois get swept of her feet by our guy...Well I kind of wanted to do that anyway and I know I posted about that before but anyway I really have enjoyed the journey you have taken us on in this story and I'm ready for more when you guys are ready to get it posted...

Feel better, and again I hope all works out...*HUGS*

*LOL* Don't feel bad about starting burn out on the Original 'Verse, Ella. It's been around forever and it's easy to do. I think that's why that's why I was slow to get readers at first. Everyone thought, "It's all been done!" Then again, I had what, twelve years to plan this?

Down to close to two weeks before the vacation. Really tired, but I only have a little while left to go. I can't wait to see those mountains...

Change of scenery is always nice, about to go in and watch SII now Donner Cut of coarse..

Hugs are very often better than wise words of comfort, so I'm sending you lots of e-hugs. *hugs*
Loiskalalanekent on April 23rd, 2007 05:20 pm (UTC)
*hugs* Thanks so much, love. Thankfully, things are getting better over here and my leave date for Asheville is closer and closer. Just her, Anissa, mountains, cabin, laptop, and writing. We should be deep in the 'Action' part of the arc by then, so... *grins*
