Better Than Friday

At some point, I'll go into the clusterfuck trainwreck that was my Friday. Until then, I offer the following snippet of conversation:

Her: I'm sorry the client yelled at you like that.
Me: Well, he was a little upset but its okay.
Her: Did he tell you to go fuck yourself?
Me: Um, no. Should he have?
Her: No. He's told me that a couple of times.
Me: Uh...I feel left out. But has it ever struck you that that's slightly inappropriate?
Her: Yeah. But now I make him eat lunch before our meetings so he's not cranky.

There are just so many things wrong with that. Including the fact that she was the one who ducked her responsibility and put me in the position to get bitched at. Ugh.

"Now I make him eat lunch before our meetings so he's not cranky."?! It's so wrong that he's allowed to get away with that sort of behaviour. Gives me an idea, though. Maybe if I start getting cranky at meetings, they'll start providing me food. Oh the possibilities.

Hope this week is better than last week!

superglue staplers to both her hands & tell her that there's a poisonous spider weaving a web in her hair.

hilarity & revenge will ensue.

Whenever I get cranky at work, they just tell me to go and have a cigarette... I want lunch too!

there so much wrong with that post that i cant even begin to go there!
Just...not...right.
"Hello client"
"fuck fuck fuck"
"have you eaten today mr Client?"

That's completely inexcusable. I am sorry that you had such a horrible friday. Here's hoping that this week is better. And I meant to say it before, but that picture of pixel was wonderful.

Huh? Surely I read that wrong...

If thats a snippet of your Friday from Hell, I'd hate to see the entire transcript..

I hope this week is better. And I agree with feisty girl - the picture of Pixel is gorgeous.

what worries me, really,
is that he'll tell
a woman to fuck herself,
but not a man...
that's sick in a frightening way...

Okay, that is just wrong.
If you treated the CLIENT that way, your butt would be on the sidewalk. It's not acceptable for him to be that rude. Ever.
Oh, and smack your co-work. She should have warned you.

As absolutely dreadful as that sounds, It did make me laugh. Just for the sheer lack of sanity in that situation. I hate days like that... but I -love- the word "clusterfuck" which you so nicely marked out and replaced with a more appropriate word. :-D well done.

Such a versatile word fuck is.. use it as a noun, a verb, an adjective, the list goes on and on ;)
