So some of you remember I’d been talking about a possible manager position coming open, and you and Dr. M all encouraged me to tell the bosses I was interested. So I did. Opening date of the new hotel has been pushed back and back, so I wasn’t sure when to expect to hear. Yesterday I did. C told me what she knew, I guess to give me a heads up/warning. They hired a new guy a couple months ago, and they are making him the manager here, and moving C to the new hotel. I’ve been here FOUR YEARS, and they give it to the guy they just hired?! He has a little experience, but he’s been working at a fucking Krystal for a while before coming here, NOT as a manager. And how am I supposed to GET experience if no one gives me a chance?

Seriously, one of the things I liked about this place when I started was that they promoted from within. WTF. FOUR YEARS. I don’t want to be a damn desk clerk next year, or the year after that, or the year after that. And clearly if they were going to promote me, they would have. I’m pissed and depressed, and I can’t fucking STAND the guy they’re promoting. Guests like him a lot, but he’s a HUGE PHONEY. Ugh.

I finally saw the foot doctor yesterday. He says I have turf toe, and gave me steroids to help with it. I’m a little nervous about it, since it can cause mood changes. I didn't exactly want to tell the damn foot doctor that I'm bipolar. I wonder if the Prozac and Lamictal will hold up to the steroid. We’ll see. He told me if I couldn’t take the side effects, I could stop taking them. He also gave me this pad to wear in my shoe, but I’m not sure if that’s helping or hurting, really. It IS annoying, though.

So I posted fic the other day, and I’m not happy with it. I was unsure to begin with, then I posted. And then I regretted it later. I feel like there should have been more build up than there was. Maybe I can expand it into a larger fic. I want to write longer fic anyway. I need to get inspired, though. Maybe I’ll write loooooong fic for [ profile] cm_exchange this year.

Speaking of which, I CANNOT BELIEVE it’s time for me and [ profile] innerslytherin to think about [ profile] cm_exchange again! We need to kick it off this month. Like SOON. And the lovely, sane [ profile] resolucidity is helping us out this year. :D You all better play again this year (or start playing), or we’ll hunt you down!

For those of you not following me on Twitter or FB, I HAD to share this link, because rofl!

(P.S. I have SUCH trouble titling posts, but not this time! Mwah!)

There is this woman in our hotel that keeps calling me baby. Ugh, if you don't know me, don't call me baby. I don't care if you're a man or a woman. In fact, even if you do know me, don't call me baby. The only people who can get away with that are my parents. I am their baby, you know? It's just... I don't know. Condescending? That doesn't seem like the right word, but I'm not sure what the right word is.

So, I am at work today. My day would be half over right now, but I'm staying late tonight. They asked me to stay last night and tonight, but I had plans to write with [ profile] innerslytherin last night. Tonight I have no excuse, and the guy who called out is out because his parents are both sick with cancer, and he needs to take care of his mother. I can't blame him. I'm still sort of regretting agreeing to come in, but whatever.

Another hot day today. Supposed to get near 100, but fortunately I'll be inside. The ac at work is sorta lame and won't keep up, but getting up to the 80s in here is better than the 90s out there.

This morning my car decided to mutiny. I hit the button on the key fob. It didn't unlock. I tried the key in the lock. Nothing. Then I tried it in the passenger side door. Nothing. The freaking car locked me out! Yes, it was my car, not just one that looked like mine, I'm sure of it. Also? The key let me into the trunk, but nothing else. I am so confused and irritated, and I really hope this doesn't cost me much to repair. Anyone on my flist have any insight? It's a 2005 Hyundai Elantra. I tried Googling and came up with nothing. *headdesk*

WTF Facebook? I went to edit my friends with the express purpose of removing one person. This is someone I added because I kind of felt like I had to. Now, when I went to edit, it let me remove a couple other people, but half the time, she doesn't show up on the list to edit. When she does, it won't do a damn thing when I try to remove her! WTF! I am sick to fucking death of being proselytized on my God damn Facebook home page.

Would it be rude of me to send a message to her to basically say I don't want to read her FB anymore, but FB won't let me remove her for some reason, can she please unfreind me?

ETA: Figured out I could block her, which cuts all ties. Woohoo!

In 1997, Mr. Show With Bob and David (A brilliant show that used to be on HBO) made this sketch. Apparently someone put it on Youtube because of recent events, but it's been rolling around in my head since yesterday.

In 1997 it was fucking funny. Now? I actually find it a little depressing. Wtf, NASA?

(FYI, Mr. Show was written beautifully so that the sketches all melded together and flowed. So that lest part won't make any sense unless you've seen the show because it's actually the beginning of a new sketch.)

Did you know that if you call Travelocity customer service, they actually have an option to verbally request the "gnome joke of the day"? Because I didn't, and I've worked in hotels for almost four years.

I had to skip it the other day because I had to get a credit card authorization. But I called back this morning because curiosity was killing me. It was a knock knock joke. A really bad one (are there any good ones?). And they actually said something like "Now that we've brightened your day a little, if you're done, you can just hang up..." Do people really call just for the gnome jokes?

Oddly, I do want to call back on my next work day, though, to see if they use the same one every day and hope no one notices, or if it's changed. *headdesk*

Someone tell me something nice. Anything. I am half way between tears and beating the ever-living fuck out of someone.

THIS is exactly the sort of thing that makes me paranoid to friend anyone else again ever. Whether or not the screen capped post is for real, just the fact that someone would do that to someone else is disgusting. If it IS real, that's even worse, and it makes me sick.

I am THIS close to unfriending that comm myself, like others on my flist have. The level of utterly stupid and/or hateful posts lately makes me cringe.

Does anyone know anything about Cat 3 and Cat 5? I hear it's being installed on work computers, and I'm pretty sure it means she'll be able to monitor every damn thing we do. Which means no more work internet.

FUCK. What the hell am I supposed to do? No matter what she says, if we're slow, there's only enough work to fill a couple of my eight hours.

Some geeky computer person tell me I'm wrong. Please.
