Mewsings from Lowecat (aka Indianacat)

My rants, ravings, and overall 'mewsings' on life, the universe, and everything.

I Had a Hissy Fit Today

The day started out pretty well today. Despite grey skies and chilly temps, it's also Thursday, which is one more day closer to Saturday. I'd gotten some writing on my fanfic done before bedtime, had played with the cats, tormented/talked to the dear husband, got to wear jeans to work and had a relative uneventful drive to work (too friggin' cold to take Tig, the bike!).

Then I get to work and get pissed. Real pissed. It was a true 'who moved my cheese moment'. It takes a lot to get me pissed at work, rudeness is one of those triggers. She Hulk has nothin' on me when it comes to temper.

I don't demand a lot at work. A place to work, and the tools with which to work. One of those tools includes the phone cord. It's hard to make/receive calls with the cord that connects the bloody phone and headset. I had phone, and had headset, but no cord.

Now, this was not the first time this had happened. It wasn't the second time. It wasn't even the third time. Hell, I've lost count as to the number of times this has happened. Or that the computer mouse was taken from the desk. Every time this has happened, there has been no note, no apology, no email.

I went on a search, told TIIC that my workspace had been violated, and the guilty party came forward with the connector, apologizing for having taken it. I wasn't very gracious about it. To me, takin' stuff off my work station is like entering my home and takin' shit. It's just not nice. At least leave a friggin' note.

Could the day possibly have gotten any worse? Hell yeah!

I took an extensive course in Spanish a few years ago, in order to ask very basic questions of customers. Nowadays, there are websites that will transcribe the words for you. I took time to put our scripts in Spanish to better help our customers.

Today, an ungrateful person told me I obviously needed to go back to school to learn how to speak, as I didn't know what I was talkin' about in tryin' to converse in his own language. Interestin' that he knew enough English to be rude and insulting.

So if all y'all saw an angry purple and black cloud hovering over Indianapolis today, y'all know it was me.

I think I'm entitled to have a hissy.
