I had to go in work early because the 1st shift person called out. Injury. Then calls out again Tuesday decides to go to doctor. Only a bruise. Comes in Wednesday. Leaves me way too much work because arm is sore. Recuperate and go to work Wednesday only for 3rd shift to call out. Have to stay. First thing I read Monday was "Drink some coffee, put on some hate music and deal with it." All the other messages were about be grateful. I barely made it through the night. My people were being stupid. I work in quality control and they use me to get out of working. They call me for stupid stuff. Act dumb. Come ask me questions after their supervisor told them what to do. Try to get a different answer out of me. Some time I don't have easy way out for them. They often have to redo their work because they made mistakes or didn't listen. They call me out right before their break and then they are not there when I get there. They do this so they stop working early. It is like herding cats. They are always sneaking off. I expected 3rd shift to pull their typical shenanigans, but they were mostly tame except the 2 fruitcakes. they will always be fruitcakes. I obviously can't exercise on 12 hour shift days. I can eat right though. I can't weigh myself because it make me swollen being on my feet. That would just piss me off more. Yes I drank coffee. I played Godsmack. Not really hate music. Most important is I kept reminding myself to be grateful. I am healthy enough to handle this extra torment on my body. I can stay on track with food and not allow this to side track me. Before I would have had fast food on the way to and from work. Instead I made healthy choices. I made some chicken and rice for 6 meals. I had the first for dinner and it was very flavorful. I am grateful to have a job that pays my bills and then some. I have excellent healthcare and benefits. I have 10 sicks days and only used one for an emergency with my child. 2 weeks vacation and I have a week left. 9 holidays. And they keep raising my pay. My kids are healthy. I am getting healthier. This will all pass. Somehow this will make me a better person. lol had to edit bad words. See becoming a better person already.

    Being grateful will overcome the bad stuff. Those who are being awful will pay in the end but we pray they will change before they become worse or don't have the chance. Keep being true and honest and grateful! emoticon
