I have had three cranky days in a row... yesterday was by far the worst of the three days. I'm glad the weekend in coming, this week can't end soon enough.
My work has been exhausting me. Not the actual work itself, but the nonsense that comes hand in hand with working with people who take no pride in their work.
I understand all too well that people make mistakes. I make mistakes. It happens. When I realize that I've made a mistake, like most people, I own up to it, and then I take the necessary steps to correct the mistake.
I can't deal with people who make mistakes and just don't care, or even worse (which is the case this time), try to put the blame for the mistake on someone else. Unfortunately, I have the misfortune of having to work with someone who does just that. Fortunately for me, people have begun to recognize what has been going on, and are beginning to hold this person accountable for their actions. What does this person do when they realize they've been caught? They call in sick and hope that everyone forgets or feels sorry for them.
The only good thing that's coming from all of this is that I have had the willpower to keep myself from going to the fridge and eating everything in sight. Yay for me.
Tomorrow is going to be a great day!
