2011 Stinks: The first Monday.

I worked all weekend. Pretty much everyday since December 17th I have worked.

But the first Monday of the New Year has been an absolute crap sandwich.


I get to work and login to our HR system to schedule some much needed time off. I have a Dental appointment tomorrow, a VA Doctor appointment on the 21st and a court date for a minor traffic citation on the 28th. Figured I’d use some of the held over vakay time to get paid for those days. I had almost 20 hours of vacation time that rolled over from last year, so I should be fine.

Key word: Had.

Apparently they changed our HR system last night, and all of my vacation time vanished.
All of my sick time vanished too.
My benefits? Gone. No deductions scheduled.

My paycheck is short by $200 which has put our first of the month bills, like my house payment, in to a tail spin.

Some wog in Wisconsin is advertising a wedding ballroom for rent…using my 1-800 number. I have gotten 13 calls in the last two hours from people wanting to reserve the ballroom.

To make it all even more untenable, there is no coffee and thanks to the payroll screw up I can’t buy any myself.

The first Monday of 2011 is not off to a good start, and frankly I’m already ready to go back to 2010 or to start 2012 after today.

  • Dang dude, yer company sure screwed the pooch on that one, this is bovine feces….as for the ballroom, take the reservation, take the money from them, then when the date comes around, deck out yer house for a wedding, and wait for them to show up :P

    I’m sure things will get better, hell, they cant get much worse :)

  • I think that 2011 is out to get me

Right out of the gate got a massive headache. Not sure if it's related to the mix or not. Still worth noting

    Let’s class up the place a bit shall we? Steam punk ladies have always held a special place in my heart. I think because of instead of frail, fragile creatures steam punk fiction ensconces smart, strong, inventive, and independent women (Such as Polly Perkins from Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, Mina Murray League of Extraordinary Gentlemen or Evelina Cooper, A study in Silks) I think for guys, or at least guys who think, its an attractive and alluring mix. Classy without being trashy, more vixen instead of vamp. A tease of what could be, what may be and what would be, but she just may kick the hell out of you for making a move but kiss you to make up for it later.

    reblogging here because i can see this being relevant to anyone who’s ever tried to get out of an abusive relationship

    Reblogging because that last comment made me reread the whole thing in a new light and realize this could be vital information. So, putting it out there for everyone, and hoping no one ever really needs it.
