OMG, Eff Off!

Work, you absolute troll! Leave me the christ alone, FFS! I was asked an hour ago to cover a shift today. For the first time ever, I turned it down. Poor sick Patricia and all, but I have an entire day of doing seemingly nothing planned, and it's too late for me to cancel those dire plans.

I fibbed and said I was hosting an event in the city, tonight, but I hate lying. I hate that I feel the need to make an excuse. But, I already stayed up all night on purpose, just to extend my day off, and am not prepared to drag myself to work at the last minute. It's simply too late. I may have no responsibilities, so to speak, but I take my time off as seriously as I do my time at work. Just as long as I'm asked in advanced, I will be work's b***h. But, my time off is just as important. I've sacrificed several personal events and occassions to cover shifts I was supposed to have off. But, I'm in home-mode, now, and this time, work has to sacrifice. If they only called last night. Besides which, it's not like they're going to make this time up to me. They won't be giving me tomorrow off instead.

Eff this! I spend the majority of my waking life being someone that I'm not, just so that I can socially scrape by enough to remain employed and housed. So, you'd better believe that on my days off, I go to extremes making it up to myself. It's called rejuvenating. It's called recharging. It's called work/life balance, and it's absolutely essential for me. Why should this be any less important than if I actually were hosting a event, tonight? It's not. I actually do have somewhere to be, tonight, but I will likely not go, because I need to be too busy couch-surfing, smoking the last of my weed, and just doing that all-important nothing. And, why? So, that for the next three following work days, I can put the mask on a smidge less grudgingly, and maybe still recognize myself when the next day off comes.

Soooo, because your mother has bartended the same establishment for a number of years excludes her from the frustrations of it, she should be used to it? Wow, little girl, you have a great deal to learn from the world.

On the matter of my son, both mother and daughter as well as daughter's boyfriend are currently serving time for what they did. That's enough for me.

I want and need the time off that I'm supposed to have off. Nothing obnoxious about it, just a little nerve-jerking to feel put on the spot.

Be nice Toxic, some entry level jobs can be taxing. And lay off your mum, bartending can very taxing in itself, dealing with drunks, their messes and so much more.

What position do you hold that you can make comparisons anyway?

You remind me of my mom. She's 39, a bartender and literally says she cannot clean up her messes in the kitchen because she works and it's so terribly taxing. You both work entry level positions. Ugh. So obnoxious.

I like bunnies.
Oh. Have fun relaxing. Relax some for me, too, 'cause I have to work today.

Well, if it is anything at all, technically you are hosting an event, it just happens to be a one-party event. So there, you have not lied and can feel completely at ease at hosting your "stay-at-home-rejuvenation" event!
