I Had A Bad Day

I just spent two hours working on a post that chronicled how yesterday sucked ass (not in the good way) then my computer crashed and took the post with it. Here is the Cliff Notes version.

My work project ended.

Out of no where I got laid off. Not only did I get laid off, but I was told I had to come into the office the next day to fill out and collect the paperwork I would need for my 401K and COBRA. There was no mention of my final paycheck which is in violation of employment laws.

Me shocked and very angry.

Went on a date with the guy I hadn't connected with a week and a half ago. He was nice, cute, smart and liked him. After the date was over I went back to the lot he assured me was OK for me to park in to find that my car had been towed.

Surprised myself that I managed not to have a breakdown.

Called the towing company to have them give me their address and for them to tell me it would be $120 get my car back, that's cash only.

Still holding it together.

The date told me he knew where the towing company was, but after driving around for a while it turns out he had no idea of the location.

I managed not to inflict any bodily harm, he was cute after all and offered to pay for half.

He called the towing company again to get the address. Got my car back, the date gave me a thinly veiled invitation for sex. I accepted.

After sex, which was pretty good got lost going home. I surprised to find how quickly I was escorted to the door. I hadn't foreseen the walk of shame.

The drive that should have taken 30 minutes turned into an hour, because Boston sucks.

This morning tired and hungover I called to set up my appointment with the HR Manger to get my paper work.

Thirty minutes later get a call from my boss saying they have a project for me and asked me if I could come into work now. Managed not to laugh in his face, but told him I would be in on Monday.

God I think I need another drink.

Well, on the bright side, you still have a job.

And now that you know how these assholes operate, you can start looking for a job with a decent company (behind their back of course!).

P.S. I'd lose that guy's phone number if I were you... ;)

Well, I'm glad things worked out OK as far as the job was concerned. For the rest of it, my sincere condolences!

Well, you got laid and are still employed and only out an extra $60. Sounds like a damn fine weekend in my book.

Holy cow...that is NUTS. Sounds about like MY week.

I got laid off en masse. They herded us all into a conference room and let us all go ... via conference call.

Also had my car towed from a lot I was told was safe. The asswipe who told me to park there said "Gee, I partly feel this is my fault." Yet he didn't even partly offer to help pay for it.

That sucks. Hope things are looking up.

After all that time you spent driving around, it was probably pretty late when you were done with sex. He was probably just hurrying you out the door because he needed to be at work in the morning.

You should check this out if you don't already know about it.

Spread the word to your friends. Hold these people accountable.
